Survival of Dana is a 1979 CBS made-for-TV film starring Melissa Sue Anderson, Robert Carradine, Talia Balsam, Marion Ross and Judge Reinhold in his first film and Anderson in her first non-Mary Ingalls role as a modern-day "bad" girl while on hiatus from Little House on the Prairie and one of Ross' other TV roles during Happy Days' primetime run. It was directed by Jack Starrett, whose only child, Jennifer, plays one of the antisocial clique's members ("Lynn") and is a teenage drama about conflicting adolescent values in affluent societies, as the titular youth (Anderson) is transferred from Fargo, North Dakota to Los Angeles' suburban San Fernando Valley after her parents' divorce.
