User Reviews

Excellent color remake of the Eagels/Davis classic films.

Usually remakes of classic films containing classic performances are disasters, but this is quite well done. The taut original drama is very well directed with superb tension and Lee Remick gives an excellent performance in the lead. She can stand with Jeanne Eagels and Bette Davis as a fine Leslie Crosbie. This is worth seeking out - way above average for a tv movie.
