Subject:        Lifetime Channel movie makes references to _Romeo and Juliet_

_A Face to Die For_ (1996) starring Yasmine Bleeth (of Baywatch fame),
James Wilder, and Richard Beymer rebroadcast on the Lifetime Channel
October 2, 1999, 8 p.m. EST makes several references to _Romeo and
Juliet_.

A Face to Die For  is a "women's" made for t.v. movie about a woman
named Adrienne (Bleeth) who has been disfigured facially because of her
boyfriend , who dumps her, and who then meets a doctor who gives her
free plastic surgery.  She falls for him, even though she has a pretty
rival, the doc's current girlfriend (the doctor is a widower of several
years). Through successive operations, he makes Adrienne beautiful and
wants to marry her, but the rival shows her a photo of the guys dead
wife, who Adrienne now looks like exactly.  So she leaves the doctor
wife, and she meets a film director who is making a film on R and J and
he wants her to design the clothing for it.  She says to him "I don't
think people believe in that kind of thing any more. Do you think it
will be lucrative?  He replies "But I believe in it."
Her original boyfriend then comes back into the picture and leaves roses
for Adrienne with the following on the card: "A rose by any other name
would be Arienne.")  He is sleazy.

I couldn't manage to finish watching the thing.
