Star Jeff Bridges once said of working on this film: "I was turned on by the idea of working again with director Lamont Johnson, with whom I'd done The Last American Hero (1973) ('Stock Car Racer'). And I was curious about the phenomenon that is Farrah Fawcett-Majors [Farrah Fawcett]. But I did worry that she was into being a personality, and not an actress. But whatever fears I may have had soon disappeared - she was great! By the end of the first week, I couldn't believe how good she was. After two weeks, I said to myself: 'You had better look sharp, Bridges!". See more »
I recently acquired a copy of this movie on VHS & thought it was absolutely fantastic-better than all that drivel that Hollywood dishes out today,that's for sure!.The movie takes a while to get to the point,but hey,nothing's perfect.There's even a slight hint of comedy in some parts.All in All,I found it an entertaining who-done-it that is typical of 1970's TV movies.The mild-mannered housewife role played by Farrah Fawcett-Majors (as she was then known) is a complete departure from her earlier work on 'Charlie's Angels'.She wears very little make-up or hair dye.This movie is not everyone's cup of tea,but it's good enough for a rainy Sunday afternoon or a night in with family or friends.
