Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The feature films contained in this two-tape set were originally seen on the Showtime cable-TV service. Both films were based on novels from the tremendously popular Harlequin Romances paperback series, which is either a recommendation or a warning depending upon your literary tastes. The first, 1988's Love With the Perfect Stranger, was directed by Desmond Davis. Marilu Henner plays a widowed fashion designer who falls in love with mysterious Britisher Daniel Massey. The second, 1987's Cloud Waltzing, was directed by Gordon Flemyng. Kathleen Beller plays a lonely-for-love journalist who falls for mysterious Frenchman Eric Gendron. Both films were lensed in England, both are predicated upon chance encounters between two people with checkered pasts, and both are chock full of unexpected dangers, unwanted separations, tear-stained reunions, gorgeous interior settings and lush outdoor locations.
