Assassination Plot film
4 August 1999 | by Dean-53See all my reviews

It's not such a bad film.

Focuses on a murder of a prominent politician in 1970's Australia. But investigating the crime uncovers some strange findings...Notable to most British viewers for some early work by Anne Haddy a.k.a. "Helen Daniels" in "Neighbours."

She has some good lines, and is cast very much against her most famous role.
