Critique of Safe Harbour - TV Movie
26 April 2009 | by feltonpsSee all my reviews

This story was as well done as any producer could do with a Danielle Steele book - all of which are exactly alike and with no depth. I would not have selected Melissa Gilbert for the lead role because her French accent is not good and she was not convincing in the part. There should have been a lot more development of the "romance" between the two leads --- all of a sudden, they are in love. Not sure how they got there but don't think the one "rescue" scene on the beach made a heroine out of Gilbert. It would be hard, however, to be convincing in any Danielle Steele movie due to the lack of believable development of a good story. I'd much rather see some movies made of Janet Dailey's Calder movies --- you could sure call on Brad Johnson to play some roles here - his role in Safe Harbour was excellent and well played. He has a quiet strength which shines through despite Gilbert's part. Brad Johnson would also be great in any of Dailey's Calder books. I think we need more early 1900 western type honest to goodness cowboy movies.
