Run of the mill '70's TV ghost story.
22 June 2004 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

Even at a trim 70 or so minutes, this TV-movie seems a bit slow and padded at times. Wagner and Jackson are married writers doing a book on "legendary" 1930's screen star Hill. They move into her estate (governed by a Mrs. Danvers-Lite type of housekeeper played by Sidney) and begin to research the life and career of this tempestuous talent. On the grounds of the estate, Hill's body is carefully embalmed and visible through a glass tomb. Wagner, whose father was her lover, slowly becomes enraptured by her appeal and begins to have flashbacks (possibly enhanced by witchcraft) of his father and Hill while Jackson frets and faces various spooky obstacles. The story is somewhat intriguing, but the execution is routine in the extreme. Hill exudes all the 1930's glamour and presence of, say, Cheryl Ladd or Suzanne Somers. With anachronistic hot-rolled hair and contemporary demeanor, she hardly evokes the necessary period details. Wagner and Jackson do okay jobs, though their roles are sketchy at best. It's nice to see Sidney in her usual crusty, tight-lipped mode (wearing what has to be THE reddest lipstick available!) There is also an opportunity for real-life Hollywood veterans Blondell, Carradine and Lamour to do something other than "The Love Boat" and keep their health insurance going. All in all, it's a mildly clever story with familiar actors, hampered by murky photography and a lackadaisical approach.
