Deborah Raffin in For the Love of It

Deborah Raffin in a slapstick comedy? Yes, it happened! The actress had dabbled in comedy a bit during the 1970s, but in 1980 she starred in the spy spoof For the Love of It. It was a made-for-TV farce with lots of television actors appearing throughout and with beautiful Deborah Raffin taking the lead role. While primarily remembered for her dramatic work, Deborah Raffin proved here once and for all that she was quite adept at comedy and probably could have done more of it if she had wanted to.

In For the Love of It, Deborah Raffin shares many of her scenes with actor Jeff Conaway and the pair have great chemistry. A heavily coked-up Conaway is second-billed here as a young medical student who falls in love Raffin. When she gets mixed up in some odd goings on involving the CIA, FBI and US  Army, it's up to him and his friends to save her. There are several genuine laughs to be found throughout with all the stars and guest stars giving great high energy performances. Deborah Raffin shines with a bubbly, energetic turn that is perfect for this lightweight picture.
