Picks and Pans Review: Trick of the Eye
The Network That Lost Football, aka CBS, has been frittering away its Sunday afternoons with vapid TV movies mostly based on Harlequin romances. They call it counterprogramming. I call it dead air.
This mystery is a big improvement. Meg Tilly plays a bohemian artist who is commissioned by a rich widow (Ellen Burstyn) to paint murals in a ball room. Slowly, Tilly begins to suspect that the death of Burstyn's daughter years before was no accident.
Barnard Hughes and Paxton Whitehead costar in a thriller that is handsome and cogent, but light on chills. Still, it beats watching the Saints or Bucs.
