Tv Movie Fave-Savesby TvMovieMiss | created - 17 Feb 2014 | updated - 1 week ago | Public
As much as I love my classic movie-saves my favorite genre of film is the '1970's (and more) Made for Tv Movies'. The ABC Movie of the Week, and the others channels that followed could always be counted on for a fun 90 minutes that showcased stars from our regular tv shows in some suspenseful, scary or mysterious situation!
Since so many are still unreleased to dvd I'm lucky to have quite a large collection of original (now long out of print) Vhs releases as well as many 1st satellite saves from commercial free cable... and although I only save movies not yet officially released on dvd, you may notice some titles on my list that Amazon shows as released. That is because I've discovered quite a few oldies are not 'real' releases. They are what's called Public Domain titles that various groups have made their own version of... AND... after reading many customer reviews of their dreadful quality have added titles I also have to my list of because I own nicer versions ;)
Thankfully the Tv Movie genre has hung in there... can find them running on one channel all day long... gotta love 'em too... those cheesy, suspenseful, scary, nutjob neighbor/lover/best friend, oh woe is me tvm's! I don't even mind the ones with commercials... can't fast forward fast enough to see what's coming next :-0
