Victoria Principal Look Fantastic
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was nice viewing a TV film back in 1990, where Victoria Principal had great looks and played the role of a New Mexcio Mayor,(Patricia Sparks),"Naked Lie" TV '89. Patricia attends a conference in a large city and gets hit on by Ted Wass,(Steve Warner), who manages to push Pat right into the bedroom with plenty of good lines. This so called affair manages to come back to haunt her in her own home town; despite the fact that her home town also has a serial killer on the loose. This killer does not like anyone, especially a woman, to point their finger at him and tell him what to do. Unfortunately, too many young gals pointed their fingers, even a poor bus driver, teacher and many more finger pointers. The ending is rather a tease and not very much to my liking, however, it is entertaining.
