Faith Domergue was the hottest of the Howard Hughes "discoveries"
9 March 1999 | by (San francisco) – See all my reviews

She was a big chest breather, and had a sultry expression.

She had her best shot, I thought, in WHERE DANGER LIVES, with Mitchum.

George Dolenz had a good part in this; possibly his only. He was a solid character/contract player, and deserved better.

The classical musical themes and outsized, over-weighted backgrounds were effective, I thought. Really approaching the cerebral, almost, as far as on a scale of the Howard Hughes things.
