| Odd and forgotten, but Mills is good...
Since Knots Landing, I have always been a fan of Donna Mills as she is believable in most TV roles, and still looks wonderful at age 60!.

While this film is about a typical stalker issue, it was a little before its time, now we have stalker films every week on Lifetime Movie Network.

Hollywood hills, and some of the scenery where she attempts to bait the killer, are interesting and intriguing. This film was made around the same time as the real "Hillside Strangler" serial killers, Bianchi and Buono, were terrorizing Southern California. I do not think this film is simply a copy of "Police Woman" with Angie Dickinson. She has a completely different presence, Mills is more attractive and interesting to watch.

Overall recommended, interesting film for a rental. 7/10.
