      Rosie I thought this movie was awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review deke p 3 1/2 stars cuz I recommend it as almost a real life twilight zone. SUSAN PETERS (wiki her) (who I never heard o til recent) was a glookn actress, herself paralyzed from waist down by a gunshot, and confined to a wheel chair. But she becomes depressed and eventually starved herself to death. Real life tragedy. & This was her last movie, she plays a celebrity confined to a wheelchair, becomes depressed, and the ending is maybe predictable. PHYLLIS THAXTER also in it. Never heard o this movie til 5.19.2022 Note to self next time watch closer to the parts from Alpha - Omega. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent performance from the ill fated Susan Peters is the centerpiece of this dark tale of a woman so consumed by insecurity and bitterness that she tries to destroy all around her. The actress crippled in real life after a terrible shooting accident tried to return to what had been a promising screen career with this film but it proved to be her last. Racked by almost constant pain she died four years later from complications and anorexia.
