WAY OUT OF TOWN: ABDUCTION Based on the real-life 1984 kidnapping of Kari Swenson, a world-class biathlete (skier-shooter), this TV movie features a nicely contained performance by Tracy Pollan (Mrs. Michael J. Fox) as Swenson. Joe Don Baker is the lawman who rescued Pollan after she was abducted by a father-son pair while running in the Montana hills. (Vidmark)
