Melissa Sue Anderson,
Mary Beth McDonough,
I remember seeing this (twice!) on TV as a kid and totally loving the novelty of Vanna from Wheel playing Venus. (I was a pretty stupid kid) This is 80's bad TV-movie gold. Every inch filmed in the Dynasty/Aaron Spelling era California of the 80s. Even the soundtrack is total 80s sitcom synth. Rips totally from movies like Mannequin, Earth Girls Are Easy and Date With An Angel, and precursors the camp of Xena and Hercules. (Callisto bears a striking resemblance to Vanna, doesn't she?) And Vanna actually made me laugh when she masquerades as "Vera" the Southern-fried cousin. She actually hit a few comic notes there.
Silly and fluffy, but fun enough to include on your bad 80's movie night.
