Harrison as Sexy as Ever
23 January 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this made-for TV affair around 21 years ago,then a few more times in recent years.I kind of liked it, the breathtaking scenery, the wealthy lifestyles, the tennis whites.James Coburn with his usual grace.Ah,....but the main attraction to this ordeal is the sexy, feminine, barefoot, beautiful Jenilee Harrison.She plays the "Dumb Blonde", and it is not even a large part.But she stole my attention and stole the show.

Most of the characters are sophisticated,well-heeled,and your textbook upper class types of which would reside in a wealthy beach-front area.Harrison to me was just gorgeous, sensual, and the typical "plaything" for an older Sugar Daddy.There are some emotional scenes, and more then a fair of drama, but also subtle bits of humor.Again, this was Jenilee's showcase, even though she was far from the centerpiece in the plot.
