Puzzled
I don't give a rating to this VHS film, not because it isn't a high-calibre thriller with excellent performances by the cast, but I saw the original Television series and I was puzzled after watching the tape. I bought the VHS because I remembered what a stunning (not perhaps by today's standards) series it was and wanted to see it again. It had a lot of holes in it--the VHS version. I was happy to read the comment by Peter22060 - February 25, 2007. I knew there had to be at least an hour of material missing because the film on the tape version gave no reasonable idea of how or why Sally Crain was a nut-case. Some idiot(s) got the rights to copy the series and even though it retains the remains of an excellent film, it had the guts removed. Thus we have a central character manipulating the highest agencies and politicians in this country with no real idea of what is driving her. Thank you Peter22060. I wish I had copied the original.
