A Family treated TV bio-pic "flavor of the moment", Shauna Grant
23 December 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I remember quite clearly the flurry of Los Angeles news reports regarding the self-inflicted death of adult film actress Shauna Grant whose real name was Colleen Applegate. Oh yes, they made a BIG deal about "the pornography business" and how "degrading it is" and how "this always happens" to "those kind of people" when Shauna was found with a self inflicted gunshot wound and later died.

This TV picture is based 'somewhat' on Shauna's life, but what makes this quickly made TV semi-bio pic a head above others is that it never holds the Adult/Porno Film industry totally responsible, instead it showed how a young woman was seduced into the glitz and glamor of being in entertainment.

The one line which is so important is when the character in this film, Pauleen Anderson, goes into a Los Angeles restaurant with a man who wants to be her "manager" which he tells her is much more than her "agent" and tells her, "It doesn't matter what kind of films you make as long as they are profitable." That's the seduction, much more than the adult films and the drugs.

Here's another young, naive woman with a seemingly All-American Mid-West perfect family, falling into "the trap". This movie made you think it could be Shauna Grant, who was on everyone's minds at the time, or as the years pass and they still show this film, could be any young woman. She overindulged, she had no real friends, she lied to herself, she had talent, she wanted to succeed on her own, she did degrade herself, she really wasn't mature enough to make good decisions for herself and when she thought she could hide under another ANOTHER self, she found out it was still her. The older man she thought she could be with, left her (albeit because of prison) like all the other men in her life. And to top it off, he ended up not "trusting" her -- like all the other men in her life. This all added up to a tragic ending of...a life.

For its time, its subject matter and companion piece to all of us who were wondering about Shauna Grant's situation/life, "Shattered Innocence" is a very good effort for the indulgent 80's if you remember or know what the origin of the film was for. As years go by, it will take on a different view for all who watch.

Since Shauna's tragedy...there are still more of the same in a line of young women to follow such as -- Gia, Savannah, etc., etc. different entertainment industry avenues but basically the same old story. And we'll be seeing more TV/Feature Film/Cable stories about these ladies as well.

I guess the point is to watch these films and make sure its not our daughters, or daughters of those we know, that may eventually end up in one.
