Release: January 01, 1973

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.
