Funny Face

By Mitchell1660

Funny Face was Sandy Duncan's first TV series and it was touted as the hot new sitcom of the 1971-72 season. It had a plumb spot, "hammocked" between All In The Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show and premiered in the top ten.

Unfortunately, production had to be shut down because Sandy Duncan developed cancer in her optic nerve and had to drop out of the series for an operation, which left her blind in one eye. After a full and healthy recovery, CBS wanted the promising Sandy Duncan back on the network, but the "higher ups" decided to re-tool "Funny Face" and capitalize on the publicity Sandy Duncan got because of the operation which caused her series to be aborted.

The show was retitled The Sandy Duncan Show, the entire cast (except Sandy) was jettisoned and replaced, the format changed and the series moved to Sunday nights -- where it bombed and was subsequently canceled. "Funny Face" was a fresh and funny series and Sandy Duncan should have returned to TV in that program. She rebounded, though, winning an Emmy in her tour-de-force role in the mini-series, Roots, and was great in The Hogan Family.
