1984 PG

Bored housewife Cathy Palmer (JoBeth Williams) has ambitions to be a writer and unexpectedly wins a mystery-writing contest to win a free trip Paris. Once there, she gets hit by a car and awakens thinking she's Rebecca Ryan, the heroine in a series of pulp mysteries. Much craziness ensues as she draws the real author (Tom Conti) of the Rebecca Ryan novels into her amnesia-induced fantasy world.
