Dreadfull made for tv move from 1979 that features several television stars in their prime, like Lindsay Wagner, Linda Gray, and Marc Singer. Too bad just being a big name can't even come close to saving this.
Lindsay Wagner plays a woman who moves in an old Victorian style mansion. There are many things that intrigue her about the house, especially the items that have been left behind. In the attic she finds and old dress. She puts it on an instantly finds herself transported back in time to when someone else used to wear the dress. She meets a man from that era and falls in love.
I know it is based on a beloved book, which I hope is much better than this. The plot leaves a lot to be desired and the performances are laughable.
