Diane Baker (best known to contemporary movie fans as the well-connected mother of the kidnap victim in the 1991 Oscar winner The Silence of the Lambs) stars as Carrie Williams in the ABC Afterschool Special entry One of a Kind. The focus of the story, however, is on Stephanie Brown, cast as Baker's daughter, Lizzie. Mother and daughter are in charge of a boardwalk concession, leaving them with little time and less money. The pressures of life have compelled Carrie to keep her distance from Lizzie, just when the girl needs her most. Will Lizzie be forced to do something drastic to get her mom's attention and care? The incidental music for One of a Kind was composed by Maurice Jarre.
