Good Delaney fare
7 June 2001 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

This was the first work I ever watched with Dana Delaney, although I remember hearing her name through the years. The story was pretty good, but Ms. Delaney made this a strong movie via her performance and I would recommend it to everyone. It caused me to become a Dana Delaney fan.
