BIG production by Sunn Classic standards
22 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I worked on several Sunn Classic productions in the late seventies and early eighties and this one was the most elaborate I experienced with them. I agree that Linda Purl is an under-appreciated actress. She also was a generous and gracious person who was a pleasure to work with.

Oddly, although this movie was filmed entirely in the Salt Lake City area, it was never carried by the local station. I've often wondered why they did preempt its one showing when so many locals were had been waiting so long to see it.

Sunn Classic may not have made any real "classics" but this is the one that came closest.
