Maureen McCormick: In one of her Best Acting Jobs.
12 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Bottom line is that Maureen McCormick in the lead role to this film at long last manages to break free of her Marcia Brady mold and/or typecast.In this 1997 TV-Movie.Yes and I'm very Impressed to see that she has in fact done so at long last if not sooner or later.But to me as with most people I'll still always as anyone best/most recognize her as Marcia Brady.But in getting to the Heart of the picture.It's a very good documented follow-up on The Famous Country Singer Barbara Mandrell from start to finish including when they changed scenes from Maureen McCormick singing to the real Barbara Mandrell singing too.I also first recall watching this on a Sunday night in 1997 along with looking forward to seeing once I'd heard it was going to be on that very night too.I was also glad to see how Barbara said that she was going to sue but only because it's the law in Tennesee.

Truthfully,

Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste" of Framingham,Ma.USA
