A Blast from the Past
11 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this made for TV movie in May, 1978. The other reviews did a fine job of plot detail. I enjoyed the movie because I had moved back to CT from FL in late 1977, and it brought back nice memories of Key West. The pace was very relaxed, as the characters were developed. Nothing heavy, just a nice pace.

I don't remember much about the movie, except William Windom was sort of a butler, pal of the main character. He was smoking his pipe while sipping a cognac. Very nice blend of Island living with a touch of romance, and a touch of deep sea danger! Certainly not Oscar quality, but a decent couple of hours spent relaxing watching a decent movie!
