 made a great decision in opting to momentarily leave her bubbly blonde persona behind and indulge in some Hitchcockian thrills for this murder mystery. Unfortunately, the film lets her down and is basically something Farrah Fawcett could have slept through on a Friday night network special. Hawn plays a successful business woman who falls in love with , marries him and then loses him to a devastating accident. Things start to go wrong after the funeral, however, and she begins to suspect that he might have faked his own death. Classic case of a movie that wraps you up in its machinations and then lets you down by the time you get to the end. Hawn would be better off playing a role that allowed her generous humour to touch up the elements of suspense, but alas Hitchcock is no longer around to make that kind of classic.
