2.0 out of 5 stars Table Natica at Jackson Ciro's December 27, 2010
DVD-R mfr. SYNERGY offers no commentary, deleted scenes, subtitles or other bonus features. Dubs are "best available source" and can vary from very good to only fair.

The title POWER, PASSION AND MURDER cannot be found anywhere at imdb. That's because this really isn't a movie at all-- it's a bizarre shuffling together and extreme shortening of two 56 minute episodes from the brief-lived 1980s PBS series, "Tales from the Hollywood Hills." Running time here is about 83 minutes total.

The original chapters were called "Natica Jackson," with Michelle Pfeiffer and Hector Elizondo, and "A Table at Ciro's," with Darren McGavin and Stella Stevens. Tossing these two completely unrelated stories together makes for (as you can imagine) a good deal of confusion.

The Pfeiffer episode was originally an adaptation of John O'Hara's story about 1930s Hollywood. Miss Pfeiffer is an actress (typecasting!) in love with a very married man. McGavin's entry was scripted by Budd Schulman. Here, he's a studio head fallen on hard times who invites some actors for dinner at a fancy nightspot.

After working hard to follow these two sandwiched tales, the whole miasma simply ends, leaving startled and disappointed viewers with no resolution or conclusion. Everything suddenly STOPS, just like this revi........
