Pretty Good!
8 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie. Usually I don't like the really really old TV movies, just the really old ones, LOL. The movie has a pretty decent pace, and the acting is good. Lots of well known actors in here. I thought Carol Lynley was kind of spaced out, but then she seemed spaced out in most of her 1970's films. Jane Wyatt really didn't seem to have much of a role. The only thing that really bothered me was that STUPID wig! That wig looked nothing like the Louise's hair, it was two totally different colors! When the guy sends the nun into the wig shop with a piece of hair to match up, you can see that it is so light it is hardly even brown. Louise's hair was chocolate brown. How hard was it to make the nun get a really dark brown wig?
