Documentary. In 1977, Joyce McKinney was a young and voluptuous former Miss Wyoming who had found the man of her dreams. The trouble was that Kirk Anderson, the man in question, was a Mormon missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who had decamped to England. With the help of a friend, McKinney tracked Anderson down in Surrey, and what happened next became the subject of heated debate. 'The Case of the Manacled Mormon' became a fascination for the British tabloids, sparking a circulation war between the Daily Mirror and the Daily Express.
