Last Cry for Help ★½ 1979

A psychiatrist helps a 17-year-old high school coed who, fearing she has disappointed her parents, attempts suicide. Typical melodrama that attempts to make statement, but falls short. Definitely not the “Partridge Family.” 98m/C VHS . Linda Purl, Shirley Jones, Tony LoBianco, Murray Hamilton, Grant Goodeve; D: Hal Sitowitz; M: Miles Goodman. TV
