Storyline

Alex L'Hiboux, a ruthless mercenary-cum-vigilante, is known as 'the Owl' because he never sleeps. His insomnia comes from a combination of a medical disorder and recurring nightmares of the murder of his wife and daughter. Alex is approached by Lisa, a young girl whose father is missing. She awakens painful memories of his own child, but after some persuasion from a policewoman friend, he agrees to help her. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

The original 48 minute version which aired on CBS in 1991 is credited to director Tom Holland. A longer edit which includes deleted scenes (opening with Holland himself as a mugger/rapist who is foiled by The Owl) and lengthy montage sequences was created for the international market and is credited to director Alan Smithee, a pseudonym frequently used when directors are unhappy with a finished film.

Actress in Denial over participation in Film
11 June 2006 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Bridget: I was a little kid. I don't even know what I was doing. Yeah they blew up the car that I was in. I remember they had me get in the car and then they were like "now get out of the car" and I did. I remember also, a time when the parents were making out and the sprinklers were on and I had to run around and laugh. I don't know if it was even in the film, I've never seen it. There was also a scene were I was running on the beach and the parents were holding my hands. I don't remember if my character was scared of waves or I was afraid of waves, but every time a wave came they lifted me up. Don't make fun of me. I was just little kid. They just needed a little kid. I remember at the audition, though, I was wearing a white dress. And there were always two girls around, Molly Orr and Lindsay something, who was Village of the Damned... Yep thats my former life... my life until I was seven... Alan Smithee, huh?--I guess that makes sense. Ed.--Bridget did not choose to post her commnent. I did.
