The premise of the story revolves around a 300 lb lawyer Billy Halleck (Robert John Burke) who accidentally kills an old gypsy woman. Because he has friends in high places, he gets off, even though the accident was his fault. The father (Michael Constantine) of the dead gypsy woman places a curse on Billy by placing his hand on the cheek and whispering, "Thinner". The lawyer starts to lose weight at an alarming rate and draws closer to his own death so he calls on his friends in organized crime to help him persuade the gypsy to lift the curse. Joe Mantegna was great as the mob buddy. Anyway it was pretty creepy and deserves it's just desserts. How about some strawberry pie?
