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 »

Release this made for TV movie on VHS or DVD
12 June 2004 | by (San Bernardino, CA) – See all my reviews

This was the first movie that introduced me to Stockard Channing and I too, loved the movie and Stockard Channing's portrayal of Miriam Knight. It's not everyday you find a TV movie that's both funny and entertaining without being silly, inane, and for the under 21 age group. The script was well written and it has a certain level of realism, that addresses the need that some of us may have to get even with those who torment us for being different. If TV movies such as "Fatal Vision" and "Chiefs" can make it to VHS, certainly "The Girl Most Likely To" should join that marketing strategy as well. Besides, making movies is about making money, for the writers, for the actors, the director, and especially for the producers, so let the capitalistic urge overtake you and allow the public to enjoy this movie again and again.
