Sultry Jane?

Not bad for a TV movie. Not quite the performance from Jane Seymour as seen in one of my all time favorites, SOMEWHERE IN TIME. In this she plays a Southern accent gal who is out to get her young daughter back. Why do the English have such good Southern accents? Ala Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara in GONE WITH THE WIND. Well, this ain't no GWTW. Directed by James Keach and written by Duane Poole, this 1992 movie was showed last night, fifteen years later. Miss Seymour still looks good, by the way, but I didn't buy the femme fa-tale bit she played in this movie. In fact I thought she missed the boat completely. However, playing opposite her was a good looking hunk, Stephen Meadows, as a guy we think is on the make for our heroine. Whether in his swimming trunks or his BVDs, this guy is hot. He also has the more interesting part to play and meets the challenge quite well. Won't reveal any more about that. What else has this guy done since then? And why isn't he working more often. It was a surprise to see Don Ameche in this. Playing a tottering old grump of a motel manager, he almost stole the film. This must have been one of his last films. What a legend he was. Steve Railsback, whom I don't know, played the husband and was given probably the worst lines in the movie, but managed to get them across without too much embarrassment. Rounding out the leading roles is Ray Wise as a detective on the search for the killer. With what he had, he did well. But, this picture belongs to Meadows. Let's see more of this guy.
