Marcus Welby, M.D.: A Very Special Sailfish

This episode concerns a once-fat girl who completes a diet during summer vacation and returns to high school a beauty. Though wholesome and upright, she is emotionally unready to handle the flattery that once was denied her but now comes easily. Worst of all, her mother, over-anxious for the girl (and herself) to finally enjoy the pleasures of being attractive, pushes her into the school social swim. The girl joins the school's swinging set, becomes bitterly promiscuous when she learns the callous boys in the group expect her to be — and, finally, contracts venereal disease. Because of shame, and no understanding at home, she attempts suicide.
