I have made a grave mistake. In discussing the movies I received for Christmas, I thought that I had covered all on-screen performances for Meryl. I was wrong. On simplystreep I happened to look at her career section and there was info on another made-for-tv movie I had never heard of. The Deadliest Season (1977) stars Meryl as the wife of a professional hockey player who gets relegated to the minors. This means I have currently seen zero of the three tv movies she's done. I had honestly never heard about this last one, but I've decided that I will be looking into getting my hands on it, as well as Holocaust. I already own Holocaust on VHS but figured I might as well just get it on DVD, so along with The Deadliest Season it would complete my collection of her television performances. Lord knows I'll have plenty of time to watch them over the next two months. Ugh.
