Early 80's TV Movie
3 December 2005 | by (Scranton, PA) – See all my reviews

I vaguely remember watching this television movie around the time it first came out, but it was a rather good drama/suspense film. Simply put, it's a story about a paroled rapist who threatens to get his revenge on the group of women (I think they were all airline flight attendants) who testified against him and put him in prison in the first place. It's noteworthy to watch for Ted Shackelford, who plays the rapist, since he portrayed Gary Ewing on "Knots Landing." This character is NOTHING like Gary Ewing, that's for sure! He was was joined by Kim Lankford, as one of his victims, who was his "Knots Landing" co-star; she played Ginger Ward in the first four seasons. I would guess that this was probably made before "Knots Landing" premiered, even though it came out after that show began in late 1979. It stars a lot of mid to late 70's TV actors, such as Sarah Purcell ("Real People"), Jennifer Salt ("SOAP"), Sharon Spelman ("Angie"), and Pat Klous ("Flying High" and later "The Love Boat" as Lauren Tewes' replacement) as well as Don Meredith, the former football player who used to peddle iced tea in those commercials. It's worth a viewing if you're a "Knots Landing" fan or like TV movies with lots of actors from classic, cheesy 70's shows.
