Did You Know?


About one year after this TV movie aired, Jon-Erik Hexum died as a result of a freak accident on the set of a new series he was filming entitled Cover-Up. Goofing around between takes, Hexum put a prop pistol to his head and it went off. As a result, he was declared brain-dead, and when he passed away, several of his organs, including his heart, were donated to others in need. He was only 26 years old. See more »

Making of a Classic!
26 August 2002 | by dgordon-1See all my reviews

I was really lucky and found this movie in VHS format on Jon-Erik Hexum's fansite. I always liked this movie for it's pure cheesiness. There are better made-for-tv movies out there, but this one has it's own brand of charm. It starts off with Joan Collins playing the owner of a successful modelling agency in search of a new hunk to represent. Jon-Erik Hexum plays a farmhand who is transformed into the '80s hottest male model with the help of a "Fever" aftershave contract. There's a lot of sexual innuendo throughout this movie which makes it funny, and Joan Collins is stellar in her role, as usual. If you want to see an early'80s made-for-tv movie at it's finest, this one is a great choice!
