FROM THE HALLMARK HALL OF FAME VAULTS: Blind Spot


Before TRAFFIC or even TRAFFIK, there was HHoF: BLIND SPOT. PHOEBE HARRINGTON (LAURA EFFIN LINNEY) plays the daughter of a Washington congressman (FRITZ WEAVER) and his wife (JOANNE EFFIN WOODWARD) who BECOMES ADDICTED TO COCAINE. The film shows how one family copes with the problem. Woodward produced the film, which includes real photos of Woodward and her daughter. The script is less believable. At one point Weaver as says "Trying to reason with you is like standing in front of a bulldozer". Oh, and Linney's character is a torch singer who idolizes Billie Holliday. The cast also includes PATTI D'ARBANVILLE, MARY LOUISE WILSON, and ALLISON JANNEY.
