Coyote the swindler, Weld the victim
14 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not a plot is given not even a review! How interesting, I've never done a first before. This made-for-TV movie was made in 1984, so it must been around 1985-1986 I must have seen it. (Swedish TV have always been late). I cannot give any spoilers away, since I cannot remember how it ended. I remember it as a very well made TV-movie, nothing spectacular, but with a good storyline. As I remember: Weld and Coyote meet, fall in love, move together, she trusts him, one day he is gone, with all money, he's disappeared into thin air. She is depressed, but slowly builds up a way how to make a revenge, on her way to revenge she crosses path with Keith Carradine, who s a brother of one of Coyotes victims, so both Keith and Weld joins in cracking Coyote. Weld playing a victim was a bit unusual. How they succeeded has totally slipped my mind. There was one very strong scene that I still remember: Long after Weld was swindled, she one day see Coyote walking in the different direction, she looks at him, he just casts a quick glance, as if she was anybody, because he might have swindled so many he doesn't recognize any of his older victims.
