The Hearst and Davies Affair (1985)

The Hearst and Davies Affair is a decent enough TV movie about the relationship between William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies. Virginia Madsen is spot-on as the actress/mistress of Robert Mitchum's millionaire newspaperman - who seems to be sleep walking through his role. The script plays a little with some of the truth but Madsen's youth and artistry is very involving and worth the watch.
