"Sharon cries out for strength...for hope...for love...." So read the ad copy for the made-for-TV A Last Cry For Help Sharon (Linda Purl) is an outwardly happy, normal high schooler: A-student, cheerleader, popular with everyone. So why is she so determined to commit suicide? Director Hal Sitowitz' penetrating script is at its best when dealing with Sharon's inner turmoil; otherwise, Sitowitz' last-act tendency to proselytize weakens the overall impact. First aired January 19, 1979.
