| Liz Montgomery Raped in 1974, Beaten & Mugged in 1979!
This movie is often confused with her 1974 movie "A Case of Rape". This is 1979, and instead of being raped she get's the crap beaten out of her during a violent mugging. Liz plays a TV reporter who is a tad bit on the liberal side. She ruffles a few feathers with her point of view about rich women wearing fur coats asking to be mugged. AHA! Then she herself is mugged and what a difference a day makes. Overnight we see her transformed into a paranoid, conservative crime victim who is left mentally and physically scarred. She even goes on the news with a rambling editorial about crime that p***es her station and viewers off even more than the previous pieces about sympathy for criminal offenders. Liz is beautiful as always, even a better actress than most people think of her. This movie is a far cry from "Bewitched". San Francisco never looked more scary than it does in this movie. A tad bit sensationalized but still an enjoyable movie that holds your attention from start to finish. Sean Frye is especially good as her son, as well as the rest of the cast. Not quite as good as "A Case of Rape" but a close second. I believe this movie is on video, so catch it if you can.
