Reba McLane is the blind film processor that works with Francis Dolarhyde (whom the press has labled “The Tooth Fairy) in the film versions of Thomas Harris novel "Red Dragon. These are "Manhunter,” directed by Michael Mann and starring William Peterson, and “Red Dragon,” directed by Brett Ratner and starring Edward Norton.
Reba has a sexual relationship with Dolarhyde, and he takes her to the zoo to “meet” a tiger that is under sedation prior to dental surgery. She cannot see his cleft palate, so she doesn’t turn him away. He identifies with her as she is “different,” too. Of course, he is a monster, so she may not be too safe with him.
