Richard Carpenter has said in the liner notes of the "Carpenters Gold: 35th Anniversary Edition" CD, that he regretted making, being apart of, and endorsing this TV movie. He also claims that many of the scenes are fictitious. See more »
The first time at the Magic Lamp recording studio, there is Karen on drums, a double bass player and Richard on piano. When Karen starts singing in the right key (A) we then cut to a Carpenter sound track that with an electric bass and an oboe. See more »
This movie could have been fantastic if it was on the big screen and cuts and changes weren't made for network television airings. I too would have cast a different actress to play Karen, and the movie changed many events in the Carpenters' lives that were real or left out certain events altogether. As a huge Carpenters' fan, I expected much more and was disappointed.
