I actually DO remember this film, or at least a little of it. I was a little tyke in 1971 and remember the promos for "Goodbye Raggedy Ann" on TV. I remember them because Star Trek's Walter Koenig was featured in the ads which touted Mia Farrow's return to the small screen. Koenig has a small role.
My mother, intent on watching the film in an era of one TV, no cable, households tried to lure me into it by highlighting Koenig's role (I was already a big Star Trek fan). But, surprise, there is little in a movie about someone contemplating suicide to attract a 6 year old, namely myself. I did have hopes Mr. Chekov might show up and use his phaser on Mia Farrow, but, alas, no such luck.
I recall managing to linger through most of the film while a bit more occupied with my Lincoln Log set than with the film. I distinctly recall remembering how nice it was that Mr. Checkov was finding work after Star Trek! The film apparently did little for Mia Farrow who, except for the occasional guest appearance on award or variety shows, such as the Muppet Show, did not return to a dramatic role on TV until the 1990s.
