Stella Stevens in shrewish "Poseidon Adventure" mode
26 January 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

After seeing "The Poseidon Adventure" in 1972, I had a new favorite actress: I thought Stella Stevens nearly walked off with the picture. Unfortunately, Stevens' next role as the title character in this cheaply-made movie-of-the-week is a letdown for her fans. Crime-drama gives Stella the short shrift in favor of Ed Nelson playing her husband, whom she has apparently framed for murder. It all begins when Linda guns down both a female friend and the woman's husband on the beach; Linda's spouse goes for the police but, when the cops finally arrive, it's a different situation. Adapted from a well-regarded book by John D. MacDonald, the movie stumbles by keeping selfish, scheming Linda on the sidelines while disgusted hubby fights to clear his name. Stella Stevens is appealing as hell, but sloppy director Jack Smight doesn't recognize this. By keeping his hot star on ice--waiting around for the sluggish beachfront police to catch onto her--he stalls nearly all interest in "Linda".
