Above-average TV biography
23 February 2003 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I've seen this TV movie biography of the life of singer Barbara Mandrell a few times and it's actually quite good. Maureen McCormick, forever known to legions of TV fans as Marcia Brady, does a credible job in the title role (her scenes following the car accident that nearly took Barbara's life are especially well-played) and she's backed by a capable supporting cast that includes Mandrell's own daughter, Jamie Nicole, as Irlene Mandrell, Barbara's youngest sister. Well-done and suitably involving.
