Synopsis by Hal Erickson
First telecast by CBS on October 12, 1977, the made-for-TV A Girl Called Hatter Fox was adapted from a novel by Marilyn Harris. Joanelle Nadine Romero plays the title character, a sullen 17-year-old Navajo orphan girl who has been sent to a New Mexico reformatory. Endeavoring to save Hatter from a bleak future, dedicated doctor Teague Summer (Ronny Cox) butts up against the intractability of ancient Indian superstitions and sorcery, not to mention the girl's own "born loser" mindset. A Girl Called Hatter Fox has been syndicated under the title Lost Legacy.
