Evidence points to divorcée Jane Seymour as a murderer
7 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Sunstroke" (1992) I found to be a highly enjoyable mystery-thriller neo-noir, one that's not listed by critic John Grant as a neo-noir but fits it reasonably well as a woman-in-distress story. Stephen Meadows gives a top-notch performance, in a role that requires marked shifts in how we perceive his character. He does this without overacting and convincingly. Don Ameche in his final role plays a voluble and fussy motel owner. His part enriches the story and provides some slightly comic relief. Jane Seymour strongly plays a woman on the defense while seeking to retrieve her daughter from a divorced husband. She also co-produced. The heat of Arizona along with being isolated in a motel until her car is fixed provide an entrapping noir environment. Another noir feature is the frame-up. What really gets Seymour into trouble is so many items pointing to her as a murderer. The mystery is resolved at about the 60-minute mark, but then the story shifts onto a different plane that's eminently watchable. This is a solid TV-movie. James Keach handled the directing and kept it moving and tense. Keach and Seymour were married for 22 years before splitting amicably in 2015.
