Kristy McNichol: Centrespread poster in Bravo of 31 October 1979

McNichol was a massive star in Bravo, thanks to her role as Buddy Lawrence in the hit series Family (or Eine Amerikanische Familie, as it was known in West-Germany). Her popularity was remarkable, since the show was broadcast only on regional channels, which meant that some areas didn’t get the show at all. The following year McNichol’s popularity increased further after her role in the film Little Darlings.
