| "You're wrong about this country...some people are very nice."
Blinded actor in Hollywood overhears his lusty, lying wife cheating on him with his lawyer; he concocts an elaborate plot to do her in. Aaron Spelling-produced TV-movie of infidelity and revenge was written by Larry Cohen, who had previously scripted "Daddy's Gone A-Hunting" in 1969 (another settle-the-score drama). Cohen's idea of a clever twist--utilizing the blind man's former profession to play up the theatricality of his murder plot--allows star Richard Boone a few colorful moments, but otherwise it feels like cheap gimmickry. Technical aspects and photography are about on-par for a low-budget movie of the week, though "guest star" Stella Stevens plays a shrew like nobody's business, and Suzanne Pleshette does well with the thankless role of Boone's therapist.
