D. C. Collins: [his interpretation of how "Stilletto" works] ... Try to imagine "Missile Command" - only played with real missiles, real stealth-bombers, real satellites... and, worst of all, real cities.

DC Collins is both a prime document of the waning years of the cold war, and a blistering exposition of the actor's craft from Gary Coleman. Coleman scored big with 'On The Right Track', the popular 'Kid' series of TV movies, and also this fantasy/espionage thriller.

There's a tender poignancy haunting DC's on screen relationship with Tatyana. Consider the divergent paths: Adlon and Coleman. It's as if the ensuing collapse of the Soviets v the USA were juxtaposed in reverse with the resultant careers of either actor.

Finally, one cannot help but regret Gary's absence from subsequent projects like this. Why is it that audiences are expected to remain starved in the dearth of available material? Reappraise, reissue, distribute.
