No wonder it's forgotten

NIGHT GAMES is directed by Roger Vadim. Sports a cast of capable actors and the music score is by maestro John Barry. You'd think this would guarantee a certain level of quality, right? Well, forget about it. NIGHT GAMES is terrible through and through. I've wanted to see this film for a very long time, ever since I saw the poster of the movie when I was a teen when the movie was released and boy, did this movie not even come close to the little expectations I had about it. The big problem in this misfire is the lead actress, Cindy Pickett. She's just not beautiful. With her very short hairstyle, she's very manly looking. On the poster, Cindy has blond hair and sorta looks like a sexier version of Olivia Newton John. In the movie, her hair is a drab brownish color, and she looks like ONJ on a very bad day. The reason why casting Cindy makes this movie almost intolerable is the fact that she's in every frame and the story is about her being alone in her mansion. 70% of the movie is just Cindy walking around in her mansion, looking scared. This makes for a very tedious "erotic" flick. The only good thing about this movie is Joanna Cassidy and Barry's score.
