Viewed this film only because Susan George had an appearance and I am sure that the director and producer used her to bring people to the box office in 1978. In the early 1970's Susan George was a very hot and steamy actress from England who drew plenty of people to see her in "Straw Dogs" and many others. Stephen McHattie, (Frank) plays the role as a boyfriend and lover to Janie (Susan George) and just goes off and leaves her all by herself and then returns and finds out she is being a kept woman by a very rich man who owns lots of business enterprises in town. Raymound Burr, (Burke) makes a very brief appearance along with Oliver Reed, (Jim Wilson) and both give great supporting roles. There is a scene where Frank asks Janie to go take a shower and make herself clean and then a few close ups of Frank drying her off and telling her how much he loves her and asks her how could she ever sleep with another man. This film is not much of a story and is very drawn out right to the very END; it is only 68 minutes long.
