Bland TVer
9 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a dreadful remake but it has its moments. I doubt Lindsay Wagner ever looked better even though she can't act to save her life. Harry Dean Stanton does an odd Emmett Perkins and Seymour Cassel is fine as the evil John Santo. But Pam Reed as the gratuitous bitchy feminist reporter is ridiculous. Robert Ginty is also good as Bab's junkie husband, Henry.

Just like the original, this bland made-for-TV flick tries to paint Barbara Graham as a well trod-upon girl-who-never-got-a-break. It also tries to make her out as innocent of the Mabel Monohan murder. That is all bull hockey. Babs was a mean as hell and guilty to boot. Throw in the obvious feminist slant and it's enough to put you off your TV dinner.
