31 August 2007 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Saw this when it first aired. Faithful adaptation of a novella by John D. MacDonald (creator of Travis McGee), concerning a very clever and cold-blooded pair of murderers -- esp. Stella Stevens' character, the mastermind. The crime shocks you from the start, and what follows for the innocent party is even more startling. A nearly perfect frame nearly works, and the way things unravel is intelligent and watchable. There are fine performances all around from solid, reliable actors, esp. John McIntyre as a crusty lawyer and John Saxon as a man over his head, and Ed Nelson strikes the perfect balance between horrified astonishment and clear-thinking determination. One of the better made-for-TV works of the time. But the poster above, ostensibly from this film, must be from some other production with the same name; it has NOTHING to do with this one!
