Viva Vaccaro!
18 February 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Brenda Vaccaro never really fit into any conventional Hollywood mold; even a brief stint as Michael Douglas' real-life girlfriend didn't get her major press, so the lady had to find her own way. Terrific early spots in "Midnight Cowboy" and the Robert Mitchum mood piece "Going Home" didn't quite afford her a following, but in 1974 she got an Oscar nod as an unabashed man-chaser in "Once Is Not Enough", and Hollywood finally began taking notice. In this TV-pilot/French remake, Vaccaro really hits her stride playing a crafty crime-solver. Brenda is surrounded by colorful cohorts (including a charming Ron Silver, back when he really WAS charming), and she's feisty, funny, and totally into her character. The subsequent television series was also good but lacked the consistently strong writing of this opener. Years have gone by, but I still think of this movie and some of Vaccaro's expressions and responses. She's a gem!
