the generals daughter (1992 ) - simon west

I saw this while away on holiday, and found parts of it (mainly John Travolta's) entertaining, but on the whole, pretty unbelievable. Travolta plays Paul Brenner, an investigating officer who ends up trying to find out what happened to Captain Elisabeth Campbell, who was found naked, dead, staked to the floor, and who also happens to be the Colonel's daughter. It was interesting, and had some twists, but the unlikelihood of the plot put me off. At the end credits (and probably because drink had been taken), it looked as though it was based on a true story, but it is actually from the novel by Nelson DeMille. Hollywood! Pah!
