Trivia

In 2012, Jennifer Edwards, who as a little girl played Heidi in this TV movie, told an interviewer on National Public Radio's program "All Things Considered" that even though she was ten years old and a UK resident, she still got hate mail from angry American football fans who resented that her movie interrupted the television airing of the 1968 game between New York Jets vs. Oakland Raiders.

The Heidi Game
5 July 2003 | by (The Heartland) – See all my reviews

Check out the 1937 version starring Shirley Temple, you won't be disappointed!

This movie's claim to fame: On November 17, 1968, the New York Jets led the Oakland Raiders 32-29, with 50 seconds to go. It was the end of the hour, and even though the score was close, NBC switched over to the movie Heidi. In the next 42 seconds, Oakland scored two touchdowns to win 43-32. As a result, all NFL contests are now televised to their conclusion.
