This movie reunites Brooke Shields and Charles Durning, who starred in Tilt (1979) ten years earlier. Brooke played a character named Brenda in that movie, too. See more »
I'm having a terrible problem with some of those purses you're having me wear. They're just too small! I have to use teeny-weeny notebooks so they'll fit. Half the time I have the memorize what people say. I want my stories accurate!
Brenda, I just draw you. I didn't create you, a woman did.
Well, tell her I don't mind the wardrobe. Of course, logically I couldn't afford it on what I earn. But I understand the public expects me to look chic, and I wouldn't want to let them down!

i thought this movie was unreal.it is certainly Brooke shields vehicle and she does an amazing job with it,she was totally impressive,endearing and mind blowing-ly gorgeous as the ace comic book reporter.her comedic abilities really shine through here so it is a shame that this film didn't become more recognized than it was. the editing in a certain part is terrible-witness Brenda Starr falling from a balcony in slow motion-but the rest is a hell of a lot of camp fun. Diana Scarwidis awesome in this role as is the Russian woman on Brenda's trail. i have watched this film over and over again and it gets better every time. do yourself a favour and dust it off a rental shelf and watch it.
