The Girl Most Likely to... is a black comedy with slight psychological thriller elements written by Joan Rivers and starring Stockard Channing and Edward Asner. The film was released on November 6, 1973 as a made-for-TV movie broadcast on the ABC Movie of the Week. The film is about Miriam Knight, an intelligent but unattractive young woman who is disrepected by those around her. After she has her heart broken by a malicious jock, she tearfully speeds away from the College campus. She is involved in an automobile accident. She requires reconstructive surgery on her face. Once the bandages are removed, they reveal a brunette bombshell. From the moment she steps outside the room in the hospital, she makes it her mission to exact vengance on all those who did her wrong. It is at this point in the film where the psychological thriller elements begin to appear. Edward Asner stars a police inspector who is the only one who figures what she has done and why.
