Looks Can Kill

Diagnosis Murder
[TV-series, guest star]
(Oct 23, 1997)
Looks Can Kill
Episode Number 91 (season 5, episode 91-6th of the season)
First Aired October 23, 1997

Dick Van Dyke...Mark Sloan
Victoria Rowell...Dr. Amanda Bentley
Charlie Schlatter...Dr. Jesse Travis
Michael Tucci...Norman Briggs
Barry Van Dyke...Detective Steve Sloan
Guest Stars:
Shelley Hack...Dr. Elaine Denell
Signey Coleman...Julia Brush
Neil Roberts...Dr. Shurmur
Jill Whelan...Nancy Stewart
Anthony Michael Hall...Dr. Richard Johnson
Christy Perry...Nurse Christina

Dr. Elaine Denell is a cosmetic surgeon who wrote a bestseller, Plastics Fantastic, that resulted in her owning a thriving clinic. Her reputation is put on the line when one of her patients, Mindy Yates, dies with what seems to be the result of medical malpractice. In addition, it seems like Dr. Denell’s it’s-not-my-fault-if-the-patient-wants-it-done attitude in dealing with her clients is putting her in the hot seat. Dr. Sloane and his team investigate and they find out that Mindy’s death is of a more personal nature than they thought.

It seems that Shelley Hack is back in the year 1983. She’s not only playing a doctor (Cutter to Houston) but she’s starring with Dick Van Dyke (Found Money). But the year is 1997, and the show is Diagnosis Murder Season 5 Episode 6 , Looks Can Kill.

And Shelley has definitely matured as a performer. Her portrayal of Dr. Denell is restrained, very much like most educated people. She doesn’t raise her voice even in anger and is very level-headed at all times, much like many doctors around. I love the shocked expression on her face (as she looked at Dr. Sloane) when she was arrested. All in all, her performance was very good.

Delightful episode with former child actors from TV Jill Whelan (Love Boat) and from the movies Anthony Michael Hall (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club)

This is Shelley’s latest performance as an actor to date. She became very busy with Bosnia, media consulting and peacekeeping in the years that followed. It would be great to see her acting again.

The Beauty

I absolutely love this ad Shelley did for Napier in the '70s. Although she did others, in this "Napier is Glossier" ad, she is absolutely breathtaking and no doubt, classy. The photo of Shelley, the layout, everything came together perfectly. It's such an arresting ad.

The Bandy Way

Revlon Charlie Girl Shelley Hack gets "The Bandy" makeup "treatment" in 1978. Way Bandy was one of the best known and highest paid makeup artists in the world and often worked with photographer Francesco Scavullo. His clients included Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Cheryl Tiegs, Catherine Deneuve, Iman, Diana Ross, Farrah Fawcett, Raquel Welch and many more. His work was emulated by the late and equally great Kevyn Aucoin. Until today, makeup artists still refer to Bandy as a great source of inspiration.

Charlie Forever and Ever

I couldn’t help it. The Charlie Forever fever got to me. I decided to make another version of this Charlie perfume ad (bogus, of course.) Here’s our Forever Charlie Girl once again on the streets of New York looking fab and, what else, wearing our fictitious Charlie Forever. Ah, wish it were true. Oh, well.

Angel Hunt Paparazzi

Some snaps from the set of the episode Angel Hunt.

The Season 4 angels wave to the cameras.
They are getting along just fine.

Shelley getting ready.

Shelley, Cheryl and Jackie waiting for the cameras to roll.
The sun seems to be blinding Shelley.
Notice the position of Cheryl's roller, cute.
Jackie looks all cozy where she's at
(and with a hairbrush on hand.)

Shelley and Cheryl seem to share a secret.
Notice that Shelley has removed the jacket of her outfit.
At the right, still without the jacket,
it seems like she also borrowed Jackie's hat.
