      Lisa Jane Persky gets a chance to shine in Private Eye: High Heels and Silver Wings from 1987. Persky was a regular on this detective drama that didn’t last more than a half-season, and her part was that of the wacky, daffy, wannabe starlet that is very stereotypical for a period piece like Private Eye. The story took place around 1956, and

      Persky’s Dottie was a secretary with big dreams of making it in show business. She was always practicing for an audition or ogling over a celebrity. She was also men crazy.

      However, in High Heels and Silver Wings, Dottie falls hard for a new guy named Tommy. I’ll give you five seconds to guess how Tommy fits into the story. Trust ...


      • me, there’s nothing new about this angle at all. We’ve seen it thousands of times. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but it’s an old plot device, and Dottie is just the latest victim. Regardless, it finally gave Persky a chance to do some acting, if only for a couple of scenes.

        Tim Thomerson has a nice role as Mac Dixon, while

        James Luisi as Jeffers is steady, as always.

        I didn’t think the writers did very well with the wrap up at the end. It felt like Jack and Johnny (Michael Woods and Josh Brolin) were too stiff and awkward. It just wasn’t ringing true with sincerity. Other than that, Private Eye: High Heels and Silver Wings was a decent hour’s of entertainment.
