Trivia

According to an interview in the Italian publication "Io Emanuelle," director Hall Bartlett insisted that actress Laura Gemser use a pseudonym because of her background in erotic films. She reluctantly accepted the name "Moira Chen." Such was the insecurity about the reputation of the film that Bartlett apparently forbade the cast and crew from calling Gemser "Laura," so she was dubbed "Rosalie." See more »

Love is Forever ***
8 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

True life story with a smoking Michael Landon as a reporter living in Laos who smuggles out stories to the west regarding the vicious government of the country.

When a general hires a lovely young maiden to spy on him, love blossoms between the two and the general (Jurgen Prochnow) becomes very jealous.

Arresting Landon and banishing him from the country leads us to the remaining plot of the film: Landon tries to get his true love out of the country via the sea. The trouble is that our fair lady can't even swim.

The film is a good one with good performances all around. The ending will certainly satisfy you.
