Jaclyn Smith, in her early "Charlie's Angels" days, gives a commendable, somewhat exaggerated or uneven performance as a young Mrs. tied down to the "little dictator" of a dirt-poor Texas county; she tries leaving him but, knowing too much about his shady financial dealings, is arrested without cause and thrown into jail. Made-for-TV feature doesn't look like much at first, yet director Steven Hilliard Stern has ambitions for the film to be more than just a television throwaway (he doesn't have the attentive nature needed to give the movie a suspenseful undercurrent, but his pacing and detail-work show sophistication). Michael Parks is very good as a State Ranger who helps Jaclyn out, and the film's best scene has him playing a little guitar for her in the jailhouse. Other performances are pushy and unpleasant, and the dusty, sweaty locations aren't used particularly well, yet this star-vehicle for the pretty Angel does hold the interest for much of its length.
This is the first major TV movie of actress Jaclyn Smith. It was
actually made during her hiatus from the first season of Charlies
Jaclyn has been given always a first chance among the angels to branch to a higher degree of fame. While Kate was looming to some other projects and Farrah doing tons of commercials, Jaclyn was starring in this well written and violent drama.
Her role is a contrast from her tight pants image in her series. Shes believable, scarred and yet sexy. She purrs and scream and run like hell and yet you still wanting her to not to escape in the county.
Worth watching because of acting, plot and a good ride to sit down and eat your home made popcorn!
