Storyline

It's the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Starfish automobile executive Daniel Corban, who is on his honeymoon with his wife of two weeks, Elizabeth Corban, at a lavish secluded lake-front house in the quaint summer resort community of Skuylkill, is frustrated. First, Elizabeth has not been seen in three days, and second, Skuylkill police inspector Murray Levine, who has a down home attitude matching the slow pace of the town, doesn't seem to be doing much about trying to find her despite Daniel's insistence that he do so. Levine does not see it as a police case since by Daniel's own admission she left on her own volition after the two of them had an argument. Levine has at least vowed that members of his detachment will look out for her and her missing vehicle. Daniel's frustration increases when a woman who claims to be Elizabeth, but is not, returns in what looks to be Elizabeth's car. He is unable to convince anyone, including Levine, that she isn't Elizabeth. And anyone in ... Written by Huggo

Great!
15 March 2002 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Very clever.

Klugman is excellent in this classy TVM from that glorious year, 1976. The remake came a decade later, "Vanishing Act", with Elliott Gould and while good, was not a patch on this.

Great plot. Keeps you guessing.

Finally got to see [and record] it this week

8/10
