Picks and Pans Review: Girls of the White Orchid

UPDATED 11/28/1983 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 11/28/1983 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (9-11 p.m.)

What happens to the multitude of dedicated young actresses and dancers who flock to Hollywood each year? If we are to believe this seamy TV movie, a good many are sold into white slavery. Yes sir, that's what happens to Jennifer (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) Jason Leigh, who signs a four-month contract to be a nightclub entertainer in Japan, only to find out that she was expected to provide entertainment of another kind. Tom (Boone) Byrd co-stars as Jennifer's loyal love interest, who follows her to the Far East. Trash.
