Our Score
George Hamilton reveals that beneath the tan there beats the heart of a heel in this TV movie based on another novel by the queen of popular fiction. Marielle Delauney's first marriage crumbles after she and her husband lose their only son in an accident. Years later, Marielle (played by Lisa Rinna) has remarried (to old smoothy George) and borne another child, but when the boy is kidnapped, suspicion falls on her ex, who's mysteriously back on the scene. Airplane!'s Robert Hays pops up as the cop on the case, but can do little to enliven proceedings and the movie plods tearfully towards its conclusion. Director George Kaczender works overtime to make us believe in this melodramatic tosh and its cardboard characters, but for all his efforts this is tiresome viewing.


A devoted mother's son is kidnapped, and as the FBI search widens, she is distressed to find herself suspected of involvement in the crime, along with a former lover who may not be what he seems. Drama set in the 1930s, starring Lisa Rinna, George Hamilton and Robert Hays.
