Clip of Susan Dey in Blue River

Here's a clip of Susan Dey from her 1995 TV movie Blue River. In this scene, the police come to Susan Dey's character's home looking to talk with her troublesome oldest son Lawrence (played by Jerry O'Connell) about an incident that occurred the night before. As the police question Lawrence, Susan Dey has an emotional chat about religion with her younger son Edward (played by Nick Stahl).

Susan Dey on Petrocelli

In early 1976, Susan Dey was one of the guest stars in an episode of the TV series Petrocelli. The episode, titled "The Falling Star," was originally broadcast on January 21 of that year and marked her second television guest appearance that year (January 3, 1976 saw the original airing of her guest role on Matt Helm).

I had been waiting to see Susan Dey on Petrocelli for quite some time. I knew that this episode was in existence on the collector's circuit in VHS-sourced format but I hadn't wanted to pay a great deal of money to obtain it. So, after being endlessly patient, a better quality version finally popped up. Was it worth wait? Yes, yes it was! Even though Susan Dey's character is not the main focus of the episode, she has enough scenes to make it completely worthwhile.

In "The Falling Star" episode of Petrocelli, Susan Dey plays Jenny Halliday, a professional actress shooting a film in the Southwestern city of San Remo. The producer of the project she is working is murdered and it turns out that her father, who she has not seen since she was a child, is the prime suspect.

Overall, the episode was quite fun to watch. As mentioned, Susan Dey does not have all that much screen time but she makes the most of the time she is given. She looks absolutely fantastic throughout and she handles her role quite well.

Here are some images of Susan Dey appearing on Petrocelli:

More of Susan Dey in Beyond Betrayal

In 1994, Susan Dey re-teamed with her former Emerald Point N.A.S. co-star Richard Dean Anderson for the TV thriller Beyond Betrayal. The move is quite fun (not to be taken deadly seriously, as some people tend to do with made-for-TV projects) and ultimately satisfying, especially if you are a fan of either or both of the stars. Beyond Betrayal has been discussed here previously, but a bit more info and a new pair of images never hurt anyone!

Here's a review of Beyond Betrayal which was printed on the same day (October 11, 1994) as the original broadcast premiere of the movie:
