As "Tara Welles," Stephanie becomes a star and celebrity. In fact she is playing a dangerous game with Greg Marsden, and with Jilly Stewart, her former best friend. Her plastic surgeon also re-enters...
Wealthy but plain heiress Stephanie Harper marries handsome tennis player Greg Marsden, and thinks she has found true love. That is, until her husband makes a play for her best friend and plots to get rid of Stephanie so he can take her money by pushing her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months undergoing surgery to have her face repaired by a brilliant plastic surgeon. However, the now beautiful Stephanie no longer looks like the woman she once was. She returns to the city under the name Tara Welles to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting to inherit all of her money. Now, she can have revenge...Written by

My name is Stephanie Harper, and this is Eden. Here, my father was king. On the day he died, 17 years ago, I was 23; lonely and afraid. If I'd known then of the nightmare that lay ahead, I think I'd have chosen to join him.

Victims of Crododile Attacks Can be Supermodels Too
I have very fond memories of watching this film every year during my childhood. This film has EVERYTHING! A frumpy, 40-something millionairess gets eaten by a crocodile, survives, pays for a very extensive plastic surgery & rehabilitation program with the money she gets from cashing in some opals at a pawn shop, and then become an international model. Choice scenes of edge-of-your-seat intrigue include her lunch date with Wendy Hughes, the woman who helped feed her to a crocodile. Fifteen pounds thinner with a Pat Benatar haircut, she is completely unrecognizable to her former best friend. Although Ms. Hughes does remark, "Hmm, Stephanie was a beer drinker...." Oh no! Two beer-drinking women in Australia! Do you think she knows?? Intrigue ensues.
