Barbara Hersey is good!
5 November 1998 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I like Barbara Hershey in this movie, so wicked and yet so sexy. Her acting's great, portaying a manipulative slut. Her co-star also did quite a convincing act of a sucker. As this is a true life story, I believe a lot of parts of it dramatise, but then it had keep me glued to the screen for the whole length of the TV movie. This movie probably goes down into histrionics but it's entertainment enough.
