Samantha Eggar in The Killer Who Wouldn't Die

In the mid-1970s, Samantha Eggar switched from starring in high-profile feature films to appearing in various projects on US television. In 1976, the actress, billed as 'special guest star', was featured in The Killer Who Wouldn't Die. A vehicle for actor Mike Connors, Eggar doesn't show up until about a half hour in and then sporadically throughout the rest of the movie.

While certainly not Samantha Eggar's best work, she does a fine job here. The Killer Who Wouldn't Die is a very standard TV movie, very much like so many others that flooded network television during the 70s. It's highly watchable but also quite predictable. Eggar comports herself nicely during the proceedings but the real problem seems to be her hairstyle, which doesn't seem to really suit her and looks a bit of a mess!

Genevieve Bujold in The Trojan Women

In 1971, Genevieve Bujold participated in a prestigious film project titled The Trojan Women. Unfortunately, I can't delve into a deep discussion of the ancient source material or its modern translation. Nor can I comment on the stage play on which the movie was based. I can only talk about the film itself. I only watched The Trojan Women for Genevieve Bujold and, in that sense alone, it was a triumph.

The Trojan Women is a fine and very intense film. In fact, due to its heaviness, it may be a little too much for the casual viewer. However, fans of any of the actresses featured in the film would be well advised to take a glance at the movie. 

Genevieve Bujold, playing a madwoman, makes a great impression in The Trojan Women. Even though her time on screen is fairly limited, she makes the most of it and gives a stellar performance. She looks very beautiful in this project, her eyes and hair are wild and she puts a lot of passion into her role.
