    Dead Before Dawn (1993 TV movie)

    starring Cheryl Ladd, Jameson Parker, G.W. Bailey, Kim Coates, Matt Clark, Keone Young, Hope Lange, Jensen Daggett

    IMDb synopsis:

    Rich and successful with two lovely children, Robert and Linda Edelman seem to have the perfect marriage. But Beneath the surface gloss lies another story: for years, Linda has suffered violent physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband. Finally, she summons the courage to file for divorce. But, with her marriage nearly over, the real nightmare begins. Enraged, Robert vows revenge on the wife who has dared to stand up to him. Determined to keep both his reputation and his children, Robert plans his own special "divorce": He hires a hitman. But only by becoming the live bait to trap her murderous husband can Linda have any hope of staying alive.


    I watched this one quite recently, so I had it in my film journal. I knew I'd recognize the name when I saw the actors' names I included in my listing: Cheryl Ladd and Jameson Parker (who is fantastic as A.J. Simon in "Simon & Simon" TV series).
