Picks and Pans Review: Evita Peron

UPDATED 02/23/1981 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/23/1981 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (9-11 p.m. ET)

Don't cry for Freddie Silverman. In a programming coup, this four-hour TV movie will be aired before the feature film based on the smash Broadway musical has even been cast. In this nonsinging version, Faye Dunaway plays the peasant girl who parlayed beauty into a marriage to Argentine dictator Juan PerĂ³n (James Farentino), then was nearly beatified by the masses after her early death from cancer. Part II airs Tuesday.
