Trivia

Supervising Producer Art Harris introduced the real life son of the escaped convict who turned her life around to his "movie Mom" on set, actress Pamela Reed. Moments after she did an emotional scene, sobbing through numerous retakes, Reed embraced Daniel Smith of Baltimore, Md. "It was the most amazing moment," Harris told Atlanta Journal Constitution TV writer Susannah Vesey in an item that ran March 2, 1992, "Her emotions were really raw. It was as if she was embracing her own son." See more »

Leonard Maltin, Add This One To The List --
23 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

-- of films in which Pamela Reed plays the long-suffering wife or girlfriend. Trouble is, she does it so well, and so compellingly, that she has perhaps been justifiably type-cast. This film was recently shown on "Court TV", of all places, and I must say that Ms. Reed's performance blew me away. She is a disarmingly attractive lady with a broad range of talent, as exemplified in this film by her totally believable transformation from backward West Virginia trailer trash to the wife of a successful L.A. Real Estate executive (before her past finally catches up with her). Were I a successful L.A. Real Estate executive (which I am not), I could easily fall in love with the character Pamela Reed portrays in this film. It is a way more appealing and believable premise than, say, well-heeled business executive Richard Gere falling in love with a street-walker (now where did I see that one???). Ms. Reed probably deserves more recognition than she seems to have received in her career thus far, though her resume would seem to indicate that she has little trouble finding work. I hope to see more of her work in the future.
