Elizabeth Montgomery is at her sultry best.
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1982, when I was 12 years old, I saw this great movie on television and I have never forgotten it. This is a far cry from the "bewitched" television shows that were so wholesome and pure. I wish that this were available to purchase on DVD as it really is a sensational tale of adult lust. If you get a chance to see this movie either on television or DVD, do not pass up the opportunity. Elizabeth Montgomery is such a beautiful and talented actress, that like a chameleon in a rain forest, she can transform herself into the surroundings of any part or script. Elliot gould plays his part very well. The love scenes between his character and that of Elizabeth Montgomery are acted out perfectly. This great movie is destined to become a classic.
