    With Helen Slater’s dozens of credits, I bet she has nearly worn away her teeth gritting them every time some writer refers to her as “Supergirl’s Helen Slater.”

      I agree. But then again I still think of her from Secrets of my Success and the Legend of Billie Jean.

        Secrets of My Success is one of my favorite movies and ever since I have loved her.

      They played siblings in “The Legend of Billie Jean” and have the same last name, but aren’t related.

    “The Lying Game” sounds like a rip-off of the 1983 REMINGTON STEELE episode “My Fair Steele”!
