Fan, The (1981, USA) C-94m. * D: Edward Bianchi. Starring Lauren Bacall, James Garner, Maureen Stapleton, Hector Elizondo, Michael Biehn, Anna Maria Horsford, Dwight Schultz, Dana Delaney, Griffin Dunne. Boring, simply bad thriller about Biehn's obsession with musical star Bacall, which leads to several assaults and murders. A tedious adaptation of the novel by Bob Randall, interesting cast and Pino Donaggio score fail to enliven this.
