The Incredible Journey of Doctor Meg Laurel

jane wyman moon director

(CBS, 1/2/1979, 180 mins). A big city lady doctor returns to her roots in the backwoods of the Blue Ridge Mountains to bring modern medicine to the local folks in the Appalachia of the 1930s and finds herself at odds with the homespun ways of the local medicine woman. Originally this was titled “The Outlander.” Veteran actress Jane Wyman returned to filmmaking here and was accorded the seldom-used billing “Miss Jane Wyman.”
