Description by OLDIES.com:

Stranded when her truck breaks down, 17-year-old Doris Mae (Linda Blair) accepts a ride from Leonard Hatch (Martin Sheen), unaware he's an escaped mental patient. Held against her will, Doris Mae is taken to Leonard's ramshackle hideout, a cabin nestled deep within the woods. Frightened at first, she soon finds her captor to be a kind and caring soul. So with time running out and the police closing in, Doris Mae must make a decision: return to her safe existence or run off with a misunderstood man.

A 1976 Golden Globe nominee as Best Television Movie, Sweet Hostage is an unforgettable tale of passion and fate, adapted from Nathaniel Benchley's acclaimed novel Welcome to Xanadu. It's also an invigorating showcase for the blazing talents of Blair (fresh off The Exorcist) and Sheen (soon after Badlands).

Product Description:

The line between captor and savior grows faint when an escaped mental patient drags an illiterate farm girl from her drudgery to an idyllic mountain refuge and sets his mind to teaching her how to be a lady. A made-for-TV drama based on Nathaniel Benchley's novel "Welcome to Xanadu."

Plot Synopsis:

After escaping from a mental institution, a patient kidnaps an innocent girl from her family's farm. He takes her to a secluded cabin, where he holds her hostage. Will she escape his clutches'
