But she's a gangster's-moll, Bugsy Siegel's, and when he finds the two of them in bed, he forces them to... His attention is all to his work and very little to his personal life or appearance.
David Bedford's office window looks out onto the unfinished Fox building, which was soon to star as "Nakatomi Plaza" in Assalto ao Arranha-Céus (1988).
Now he needs a date to take to his company's business dinner with a new important Japanese client.

Here's a Greek thriller with horror overtones which passes the time well without really breaking any new genre boundaries.
I did think the computer device which enables the lead to see white outlines on a black background was a very impressive (if not very realistic) creation which allows for plenty of disconcerting (not to mention cool-looking) visuals.
Things become a little muddled when this device gives the lead some kind of psychic link (yes, that again) with a killer for no apparent reason, so instead it skips over the technical aspects and just hopes the audience will accept the device at face value.
The film definitely appears to have been influenced by the Italian giallo movies, with a series of innocent women being stalked and gruesomely killed by a mystery killer with an unknown motive.
The difference in their career arcs can be attributed to many things, an obvious one being Hollywood’s greater willingness to grant a second act to male stars who’ve aged out of their initial hunkdom, as opposed to women who outgrow ingenue roles.
In 1996 Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore starred in “The Juror,” an uninspired thriller (with the unfortunate ad line “There is no defense”) in which she played a single mom blackmailed by his Mafia hitman into swaying the jury she’s on, lest he kill her son.
Both actors had just passed the crest of their brief big-screen stardom, though that wasn’t necessarily evident at the time, even if “The Juror” certainly didn’t help keep them at the top.
Meanwhile, a taxi driver is taking young women up to their apartments, giving them gas, and performing a little fatal amateur surgery on them.
Their paths inevitably converge, and the blind man must try to stop the psychopath.
