The Girl Most Likely To… is a much-loved TV movie from 1973 that managed to become a cult film over the years. This black comedy stars a young Stockard Channing in one of her first roles as “Miriam Knight,” an ugly, unpopular girl who becomes a raving beauty after a freak automobile accident requires that she undergo extensive plastic surgery.
The ugly duckling now reborn as a decidedly homicidal swan, Miriam decides to get her revenge on every guy and mean girl who ever mistreated her. A detective (played by Ed Asner) is hot on her trail.
A comment on the superficiality of beauty, it’s interesting to note that The Girl Most Likely To… was co-written by future plastic surgery addict Joan Rivers. Familiar 1970s faces like Jim Backus, Larry Wilcox, Fred Grandy and Annette O’Toole round out the cast.
