Sunshine

hayden film bill jill

(CBS, 11/9/1973, 150 mins). A sentimental film based on an actual case history of a cancer victim, taken from a tape-recorded diary, involving a young dropout living in the wilderness with her boyfriend, who is a struggling musician, and her baby daughter. Subsequently, a “Sunshine” series in 1975 starred Cliff DeYoung, Elizabeth Cheshire and Meg Foster, to be followed by a second film, “Sunshine Christmas” (1977). Both, in an infrequent occurrence, were on NBC, while the original film premiered on CBS.
