Christy is a 1994 TV movie based on the popular Catherine Marshall novel
about an idealistic teacher in early 19th century Tennessee. Christy
Huddleston (Kellie Martin) moves to Cutter Gap, an Appalachian town to
help run a missionary school. She soon learns about the differences
between her privileged North Carolina background and the remote rustic
village from locals Alice Henderson (Tyne Daly) and Dr. Neil MacNeill
(Stewart Finlay-McLennan). The film inspired a CBS drama series that ran
for two seasons in 1994 and 1995.
