I love Wendy Hughes, she has everytime been one of my favorite actresses along with Penny Cook. She was perfect as the editor of a woman's magazine who not only has to contend with a fresh marketing whiz who is brought on board to test and receive circulation up again, but also the fact that she is pregnant to her violent macho boyfriend. This movie was progressive for the time it was made and thankfully didn't go for the 'shock value,' but kept the movie grounded and relatable. sadly I can't seem to search this movie anywhere, but I would suggest it to anyone who would like to see a nice solid drama with a bit of a twist at the end.
This made-for-Australian-television film stars the everytime unbelievable Wendy Hughes as Melanie Hilton, the editor of a once famous women's magazine actually suffering from dwindling circulation. She gotta contend with Noel (Peter Adams), the fresh marketing whiz brought on board to retool the mag for a younger audience, as well as her crumb bum boyfriend who's knocked her up. He's such a bum, though, that Melanie won't marry him--and she won't have an abortion, setting up nice social conflict amongst her family, friends, and colleagues. The problems raised by this movie have long since lost whatever power they had to either offend or educate, but Hughes is very good, and there's even a 'birth of a baby' reel added to appease grindhouse audiences (just kidding, but the birth of her kid IS shown quite graphically, and there's some revealing nappy changing, too). All in all, a rather pointless but well made effort that might please fanatics of the Lifetime Channel.
Aussie movie-making in the seventies, except for the odd gem such as PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK was in recess and this non-event of a movie was typical of the period.Wendy Hughes, an actress I rather admire, plays magazine editor Melanie Hilton, emmeshed in a web of her own making. However, watching her running the emotional gauntlet as she attempts to deal with her lover, her former lover and her pregnancy - in no particular order, does not create for scintillating entertainment, HOWEVER competent the acting levels.The one redeeming feature, it had a mercifully short run-time, just 78 mins in Australia!
