Storyline

College co-ed Miriam Knight, portrayed by Stockard Channing is smart, witty, and well-meaning, but endures endless bullying because of how she looks and how much she weighs. But due to a freak car accident, she has plastic surgery, with results beyond anyone's imagination. Now ravishing and beautiful, she looks nothing like she used to, but the abuse she suffered while ugly still hurts. Now, Miriam is on a mission for deadly revenge from former tormentors.

Trivia

This film was broadcast by ABC and televised on Election Night 1973. In NYC the film was broadcast on ABC affiliate channel 7. When Miriam was planning to "do away" with one of her rivals the film was temporarily interrupted for election results. Those NY viewers who could also pick up ABC affiliate channel 8 from New Haven Connecticut, where there was no interruption, could "fast Forward " and see Miriam pushing that rival out of an airplane. As the movie resumed in its entirety on ch7, viewers could relive the entire "airplane" scene, if they chose to. See more »

An Emotional Roller Coaster Ride
9 April 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Stockard Channing seemingly came out of nowhere and gave us a preview of the quirky, oblique roles that would make her famous. Over the years, there have been many movies that start out funny and turn dark. In this movie, we have a very dark beginning, where a handsome boy, as part of a sick bet, seduces a very homely girl. As she flees the humiliating scene, she is involved in a horrendous auto accident (dark enough for you yet?). Because she is so damaged in the accident, doctors take the opportunity to remake her as a beautiful woman. Inside, however, she is still devastated by her prior treatment, so she uses her new beauty to exact horrible revenge on those who had tormented her when she was ugly. Now here's the kicker: she does this in a darkly funny way. See this movie if you ever get the chance. Stockard benefited from a stellar supporting cast, but she herself was magnificent!
