Picks and Pans Review: Skyward Christmas

UPDATED 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (8-9 p.m. ET)

Fifteen-year-old Suzy Gilstrap stars in a holiday sequel to her 1980 hit TV movie, Skyward. Cast as a paraplegic pilot, she makes secret plans to fly her grandfather (Jack Elam) home for Christmas. Gilstrap is herself a paraplegic (see story, page 169), and the film packs an emotional and inspirational wallop.
