Plot & Details
All the regular cast members of the once-popular sitcom The Facts of Life are on hand for this made-for-TV movie spin-off. Charlotte Rae stars as Edna Garrett, housemother for the girls of the preppy Eastland School for Young Women. Her four principal charges are Blair (Lisa Whelchel), Jo (Nancy McKeon), Tootie (Kim Fields) and Natalie (Mindy Cohn). This time around, Mrs. Garrett and the girls spend their summer vacation in Paris, learning the intricacies of Gallic culture, gourmet cooking and romance. It's strictly for fans of the series: others beware. Originally telecast September 25, 1982, The Facts of Life Goes to Paris was followed five years later by another made-for-TVer, The Facts of Life Down Under.
