It seems that after a successful career as a handsome leading man, Harry Hamlin has turned to playing rotten characters. His role in "Badge of Betrayal" is no exception. As sheriff in a small Wyoming town, Hamlin runs the place, stealing evidence, denying Miranda rights, intimidating women, the whole gamut. He sets his sights on a new officer, Michele Greene, who mistakenly takes the job seriously and is offended by his sexual harassment. This leads to big problems for her, but she sticks with it because she has to. The real estate man who sold her a new house informs her that, thanks to the sheriff, there won't be any buyers for her place if she needs to move on. Nice guy. Eventually, she attempts to build a case against Hamlin with the help of an attorney. It's scary going.
Hamlin has a real panache for these evil roles. He's mean as dirt. Michele Greene is a perfect foil, delicate in looks but quietly feisty in attitude.
