Amanda Blakes loses her Miss Kitty Costume!
10 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another great made for tv movie. Tisha Sterling (Ann Sothern's daughter) plays a con artist who preys on wealthy, lonely women (Amanda Blake). Ms. Sterling starts out being a friend and companion to Ms. Blake who is quite lonely. Little by little we see how conniving Tisha really is. She's a thief, a liar and a master manipulator who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Ms. Blake starts to become suspicious and the fun begins. I don't want to spoil it by telling too much, but this is a fun movie. Tisha Sterling is an underrated actress who has always chosen some interesting roles despite her debut in 1965's campy "Village of the Giants". Amanda Blake really brings out the pathos in this role, as you really feel quite bad for her after all the drama she goes through by just wanting a friend to hang out with. Catch it if you can, as these made for tv gems are seldom on video.
