Leslie Ann Warren deserves to have had bigger roles
28 August 2004 | by wgeiii@verizon.netSee all my reviews

Leslie Ann Warren is one of the most genuine appearing actresses to have graced the screen, film or TV. Baja Oklahoma brought her to my attention and she is a beautiful woman and even though this title was released 16 years ago, I have never forgotten how lovely and vulnerable she appeared.

I can't think of another actress who could have brought that part off like she did.

I am familiar with the Texas honkey-tonk scene, having lived here most of my life and she played the part perfectly.

The fact that WIllie Nelson played a part may have gotten the attention of the reviewers so people would watch the show, but Ms. Warren is the one that will be remembered forever.

Thank you, my dear, for giving us an unforgettable performance.
