It has been so long since I have seen this thing, but the deal was there were no men shown here. At the beginning there may have been construction workers shown, and I don't recall about crowd scenes, I guess men would have to be shown, but none of the major cast members were men and no dialogue was spoken by men.
Didn't hurt the story at all, truthfully.
An interesting idea, I'm sure it was provoked by Roe v. Wade. A baby's skeleton is found in the sorority house when it is torn down. Only one of the sorority sisters could have done it, correct? Or could they know who did it?
Assembling a television cast to be the sisters, I remember thinking Cathryn Damon of Soap was much too old for the other women.
Agewise they come up thusly: Damon was 49, Shelley Fabares was 35, Tina Louise was 45, Paula Prentiss was 40, Stella Stevens was 43 and Loretta Swit was 42.
Sondra Locke was the investigator.
One would have a drinking problem, one would be an abused wife (interesting to see when there were no men shown), and as posted, one was a homosexual.
Paula Prentiss' character was the one that was picketed, that the mob mentality said must have done it and no doubt, had it occurred for real, the media would have gone after her. Prentiss comes home one day and casually removes a picket sign left on her doorstep and goes on about her business.
My brother solved the mystery when he watched it and guessed Fabares' distinction as well. I was left in the dark.
I would like to see it again after all this time, but I doubt it would be any better now. Good for watching only once, I'm sure.
