She did. It's pretty remarkable that not only was the role of Nola successfully cast three times, but all three actresses went on to show biz success after TD.

Yep, TD did a great job in casting that character.

I think it helped that her characterization was fairly steady. Sara was all over the map, which is why I think they cut their losses after Dorothy Fielding chose to leave rather than try for Sara #3.

Well, you know how I feel about Sarah.   I was happy they moved on from her.

I don't think you ever disliked her more when she recorded that stupid tape message to Colin!! Alas, after all that trouble, he never heard the tape or even knew it existed.

I enjoyed when she collapsed in the elevator and the door kept hitting her!

  Carolee Campbell in 'This Is My Son' in 1977. Was it an Afternoon tv special? Can't find anything about it.

This seems to be the only acting  Carolee did after leaving The Doctors.

Seems like it was a tv-movie about having a down's syndrome baby. It won a "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Religious Programming" at the Daytime Emmy's in 1978, so take of that from what you will.

Carolee Campbell herself won an Emmy in that category for this movie. I think she appeared in one more play (with David O'Brien, no less) and that was it for her show biz career.

@Paul RavenCarolee's movie was a Sunday afternoon special and, as was mentioned above, it was about the baby having Down syndrome.

That was an awesome scene. Jami Fields was one of the best juvenile performers the show ever had. Not only could she play all facets of Penny believably, but she was able to hold her own with both Liz Hubbard and Gerald Gordon. That's talent.

She's really good because she makes me loathe Penny, lol!
