Q: What happened to the little girl who starred in the heartwarming movie "Savannah Smiles?" Who played the bumbling, unsuspecting kidnappers? Is the movie available on DVD?
Bridgette Andersen, who played Savannah, worked at times following this movie, including in the TV comedy "Gun Shy."
But Andersen died in 1997, reportedly of an accidental overdose; she was 21.
The two bumblers in the movie were played by Mark Miller (who also wrote the "Savannah Smiles" script) and Donovan Scott. Other cast members included Peter Graves, Pat Morita and Michael Parks. The film has been released on DVD.
Miller, by the way, is the father of actress Penelope Ann Miller.
