An absolute embarrassment!
3 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The premise for this made for TV film is bizarre. Macy and Preston (Patty Duke and Ted Bessell) are brought in by government agents and they are sure ONE of them is a traitor...but have idea which. But their sitting at a particular bench frequented by an enemy agent somehow proves one of them is evil(???). So, they get them both to agree to share a room for 24 hours and undergo questioning to see what happens. Huh??????!!!!! Macy is an annoying free-spirited smart-mouth and Preston is a tightly strung stockbroker...both are merely one- dimensional caricatures of real people. To say none of this makes any sense and the two characters are incredibly annoying (especially Duke) is an understatement. This might just be one of the worst made for TV movies I've ever seen and a rare misfire for "The ABC Movie of the Week". It's awful.
