Just saw part of Daughter of the Mind after many years...
22 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just was channel surfing and ran across "Daugher of the Mind", which have not seen since I was a young child (I am now almost the big 50), however, much to my dismay the movie was 3/4 over and I only got to see the last 1/2 hour. But this was enough to bring back memories of seeing it as a young girl and how haunting the movie was to me.

In now seeing the credits and getting the name of Pamelyn Ferdin I was able to go online (something I was not able to do 36 years ago) and find her web-site with all of this wonderful biography information.

I had no idea how many movies and TV shows she had done and I am sure that I must have seen many of them in order to have such fond and vivid memories of her.

To Pamelyn, "thanks for the memories" and hopefully this movie will be on again so I can see it from the beginning or better yet, obtain a copy for my collection. Also, I am glad to see that you are not a "casualty of child stars" and that you proved you can be a child star and a successful adult person.

Maybe "TVLand" can do a "Where are they now" special on Pamelyn.
