Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Magee and the Lady was filmed for Australian TV, where it was shown as She'll Be Sweet. Steamer captain Tony Lo Bianco, with nary a penny to his name, is about to lose his vessel. He tries to stave off foreclosure by kidnapping the daughter (Sally Kellerman) of the man holding the mortgage. From here, the film veers off into a quasi-African Queen direction, with both captain and captive learning to respect, and then love, each other. Acceptable in 1978, The Magee and the Lady might run into trouble from the Political Correctness Brigade these days.
