Fans won't find a more extensive overview of Kristy McNichol's long career in television. Focuses on all the trials and tribulations of being a child star while delving into personal conflicts with the expectations of a stage mother. McNichol's friends, colleagues and brother are interviewed including her former publicity agent, Aaron Spelling, Empty Nest producer and writer, actors who worked with her, etc.
There was one editing error in this program that was one of the worst I've ever seen and it could have easily been corrected. It actually cuts off someone's interview and goes into a commercial. When the program comes back, it doesn't return to completing the interview with that person. In spite of this serious production flaw, I thought they did an excellent job in researching and portraying Kristy McNichol accurately in this bio.
