I faintly remembered this movie, but figured since it had Karen Valentine in it, it cannot be that bad. It is actually a very cute movie, and reminds me of "Love American Style" Karen Valentine plays a girl that is hired by a friend of a big-time Magazine publisher. She shows up at his door with nothing on but a bikini and wrapping bow for his birthday. They just don't make made-for-tv movies like this anymore! The VHS print that I viewed was awful! Time has not been kind to the print the distributor used. The film was in rough shape during changeovers, and the colour was bad-people looked flaming pink or morbid grey. The only good thing was that it was recorded in SP. It would be nice if the older TV movies were treated with a little more respect, for this movie it would have been better to be out-of-print, than the crusty version that's available on the market.
