Plot & Details

Thursday's Child is full of woe in this made-for-TV drama. Rob Lowe was given "and introducing" billing in the role of a teenaged athlete in dire need of a heart transplant.

For various reasons, the debut of Thursday's Child was twice postponed. The film finally aired February 1, 1983.
