My Favourite Movie of all Times!!
What a fabulous Movie. The Cast includes Elliott Gould, Mike Farrell, Margot Kidder and Fred Gwynne (of the Munsters fame). The story has more twists and turns than a tin of worms, but you are kept in suspense right up until the end. What a great plot. I have seen this movie more than a dozen times, I have it on VHS but would love to buy it on DVD, but unfortunately it does not seem to be available at this stage. Mike Farrell plays the distraught husband (Harry) whose wife seems to be missing, while Elliott Gould is great as the Lieutenant of Police and one of my favourite actors Fred Gwynne plays the Priest. Margot Kidder is also great in this Movie. And how could we forget "Max" the dog? I would equally rate this move with another called "Murder Ordained" which I also have on VHS and also DVD. I would recommend "Vanishing Act" to anyone who loves a great mystery with plenty of twists to the plot. I rate it 9/10
