Angela ★ 1977

Twisted love story about a young man (Railsback) who jumps the bones of an older woman, unaware that she is the mother he's been separated from for 23 long years. Seems that way back when, the boy was kidnapped by crime boss Huston from mom Loren, an exprostitute, who then turned in the boy's dad, who was something of a criminal. Mom thought son was dead, dad vowed revenge from prison, and son went about his unwitting business. It all comes together insipidly, at the expense of the cast and viewer. 91m/C VHS . CA Sophia Loren, Steve Railsback, John Huston, John Vernon; D: Boris Sagal; M: Henry Mancini.
