Mrs. Camdem---well I never
9 May 2003 | by (Nelson, NC) – See all my reviews

Catherine Hicks-- I don't even remember much what this film was about, but Catherine Hicks steamy scenes are worth the watch anyday. She's a total hotty, and you'll understand why her and preacher are always getting down and having more kids on 7th Heaven, and why Kirk had a bone for her (and her whales) in ST-The Voyage Home.
