Storyline

A man who recently lost his sight gets out of the hospital and plots to kill his unfaithful wife. He starts by pretending to be despondent over being blind. And he learns how to go around on his own. Eventually he masters it and he sets out to kill his wife and frame her lover. He kills her but leaves behind something that could implicate him. The police investigate but the one investigating doesn't think it was the lover and suspects him and tries to prove it. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

"You're wrong about this country...some people are very, very nice."
1 August 2015 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Blinded actor in Hollywood overhears his lusty, lying wife cheating on him with his lawyer; he concocts an elaborate plot to do her in. Aaron Spelling-produced TV-movie of infidelity and revenge, written by Larry Cohen, who had scripted "Daddy's Gone A-Hunting" in 1969 (another settle-the-score drama). Cohen's idea of a clever twist--utilizing the blind man's former profession to play up the theatricality of his murder plot--allows star Richard Boone a few colorful moments, but otherwise it feels like cheap gimmickry. Technical aspects and photography are about on-par for a low-budget movie of the week, though "guest star" Stella Stevens plays a shrew like nobody's business, and Suzanne Pleshette does well with the thankless role of Boone's therapist.
