As the journalist Brenda Starr, Shields has a ball. In each scene, she is priceless, and ravishing in Bob Mackie's cavalcade of wonderful costumes.
Diana Scarwid also is wonderful, as Brenda's arch-rival Libby Lips. Also of note are June Gable, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Peck and Charles Durning.
Timothy Dalton, as Brenda's suave love-interest Basil St John, has charisma and charm to spare. The adventure builds as Brenda travels deep into the Amazon to retrieve a miracle formula that could save or destroy the world.
BRENDA STARR was mauled by critics and audiences alike when first released. In fact the film was delayed and kept on the shelf for 7 years before being officially released. A decade later, BRENDA STARR has been re-discovered by new and old audiences alike as an enjoyable farce that doesn't need to be taken seriously.
