Storyline

The original name of this film was "Code Name: Dancer", and it was originally shown on network TV, this thriller is an effective variation on a familiar theme-the one about the former spy who is lured out of retirement for one more dangerous mission. Kate Capshaw (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) plays the reluctant secret agent; sheâÂEURÂ(TM)s living her new life as a wife and schoolteacher when a mysterious phone call sends her racing off to Cuba to rescue an old colleague. Her only hope lies with a former lover (Jeroen Krabbe) -CastroâÂEURÂ(TM)s top adviser-whom she long ago betrayed in the line of duty. Little does she know that their reunion is a trap.

Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

When this movie was released on VCR/DVD it gained an alternate title. The new title was spliced into the existing opening footage, not re-filmed. Apparently to make this easier on the crew, still frames were pulled from the original and mixed with the new title. So in the original the puzzle pieces move into view smoothly, in the DVD version they suddenly appear - a greatly less satisfying effect. See more »

I liked Her Secret LIfe
30 April 2007 | by kitneillSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first came out and talked my way into getting a VHS (it wasn't yet common). I just saw it again yesterday, while seeing what I wanted to copy over to DVD. Really great, a nice TV movie - and based on ending, an unsold pilot. Since then Kate Capshaw married Steven Spielberg and Jeroen Krabbe went on to appear in many high-budget films.

As a bonus I wrote Krabbe a fan letter and he sent me a very nice note on a postcard showing one of his paintings - he's quite talented. I became a fan and still am.

Her Secret Life aka Code Name: Dancer is terrific entertainment. Who doesn't love a great spy movie with romance?
