A wonderful TV movie...
6 December 2009 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

TV movies from the seventies will always enjoy me. There is something special in them. Something we don't find now. This feature makes no exception. The story itself is fascinating; it is about the lost Hollywood, Hollywood and its dream. Our dreams. I won't describe the topic, as the other users have already done in a very accurate way.

Of course, there have already been other films about the "real" Hollywood, about its traps and broken faiths, broken dreams. But this one is poignant, especially in the ending. The other user has told it very well. It torn me to pieces. It reminds me a Twilight Zone episode, starring Ida Lupino, an ex star, a forgotten star, who watched her films on a screen, many years later.

And after a little while, I also realized that this little gem was inspired by Otto Preminger's masterpiece: LAURA.

The story of a man who falls in love of the woman he is looking for.

I repeat, the ending is devastating for a sensitive audience.
