Stockard Channing (GREASE, "The West Wing") stars as ugly duckling Miriam Knight, who is continuously mistreated by her peers at the college where she recently enrolled. But after a car accident, she has to undergo life-changing plastic surgery, which results in a drastic transformation. Miriam, now a looker, decides to exact revenge upon her peers... while being pursued by an inept Detective ("Lou Grant"'s Ed Asner).

    This outragous black comedy, co-written by a then-relatively unknown Joan Rivers (foreshadowing her plastic surgery obsession) premiered as a Movie-of-the-Week in November, 1973. It garnered good ratings and was rerun often over the next two decades. It's now available on DVD from MGM Home Entertainment.
