A TV Movie Surprisingly Good
In 1947, in New York, Lindsey Gates (Lindsay Wagner) and Beverly Thomas (Angie Dickinson) befriend each other on the main deck of a transatlantic that is departing to Europe. Lindsey explains that she is in honeymoon and in love with her husband Kenneth Gates while Beverly is traveling alone to think whether he might divorce or not from her husband. When Lindsey goes to her double cabin, she finds that she is located in a single one and her husband and his luggage are missing. She seeks him out in the ship but all evidences raised by the Chief of Security Stevens (Grant Show) indicates that Lindsey is traveling alone. Further, her first husband died and she was considered not guilty by the court and spent six months in a mental institution. Without any document or the ticket, only Beverly and Dr. Johnston (Jeffrey DeMunn) believe that Lindsey is not delusional or insane and is telling the truth.
"Treacherous Crossing" is a TV movie surprisingly good with great performance of Lindsay Wagner. The story is intriguing and the screenplay keeps the mystery in a tense atmosphere. The plot point is predictable and the conclusion deserved to be better. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Travessia Suspeita" ("Suspect Crossing")
