The initials in the title of this made-for-TV movie stand for "Security Hazard Expert"--an apt description for the heroine, sexy superspy Lavinia Kean (Cornelia Sharpe). Shuttling throughout Italy and Germany, Lavinia thwarts the villainous machinations of Italian blackmailer Cesare Magnanon (Omar Sharif). Anita Ekberg makes her much-heralded return to television in the role of Dr. Else Biebling. First telecast February 23, 1980, on CBS, S*H*E was written by Richard Maibaum, a veteran of the James Bond films, as the pilot for a weekly adventure series. Maibaum also scripted a followup, tentatively titled S*H*E II, which was abandoned when the proposed series failed to make a network sale.
