I remember watching this when I was at home from school with a bad cold. I think it was also on PBS.
Whatever happened to trudy young? I used to think she was very sexy on alphabet soup - I think she also had a part in "Slapshot", the hockey movie with Paul Newman

The movie was a Canadian one called "Face-Off." Trudy went on to work for an advertising company in Oshawa in the 80's when she gave up acting. I'm not sure where she ended up after that...

I watched "Alphabet Soup" in Ireland, long ago, only because I was madly in love with Mavis Kerr. Has anybody out there got a photo of her?
