Joe Willis: Who are you, and why did you push your way into my office?
Kris Munroe: Well, who I am doesn't really matter, or where I come from. What really matters is what, eh, you and I can do for each other.
Joe Willis: Hmm. And what would that be?
Kris Munroe: Well, you make films, and I'm an actress. And I also need to make some money, real fast.
Joe Willis: [laughs] You know, if you could just overcome your shyness and learn not how to be so vague, speak your mind, yet, get to the point, you might get somewhere in this world.

Kris Goes Undercover As A Starlet
26 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kelly,Kris and Tiffany investigate the disappearance of a young man who came to Los Angeles in search for his girlfriend, whose big screen debut was in a low-budget adult film.They find the fiancé is dead and Kris, posing as a starlet in Catch A Falling Angel.

Seth Jeffers storms out of an adult movie theater and flies into a rage. He goes to a wilderness area and attempts to talk to Bess Hemsdale, his former girlfriend. Her new boyfriend, Joe Willis, intercepts him at her request and asks him to leave. When he refuses, Willis has his associates murder him. A month later, Charlie asks her female private investigators to solve the mystery of his disappearance. Seth's movie ticket was found in his motel room, so Kelly and Tiffany check out the theater. The manager claims not to recognize Seth or Bess, but Kelly discovers a movie poster in which Bess is pictured as the star under the name Sally Storm. They listen to a series of tapes that Bess had sent to Seth back in Tennessee, and learn that she came out west in the hopes of becoming a singer or actress. Kris approaches the film producer - Willis - to express an interest in becoming his next star.

This is another episode that is central to one of the Angels.This time it is Kris once again.No question that one can appreciate Cheryl's good performance as Kris especially when she goes undercover as a starlet in the porn industry.Also,we get to see how she tries to use her charm once again to solve the mystery behind the murders committed.This will definitely delight fans of Charlie's Angels whose favorite character is Kris Munroe.
