Well written and acted TV movie
29 March 2008 | by Johnboy1221See all my reviews

I don't know why some enterprising company hasn't latched onto the TV movie as a great source of entertaining box sets. With all the other compilations gathering together films from our past (westerns, comedies, TV shows, and adventure yarns, to name a few), about the only thing left to put together would seem to be TV movies....films that normally don't end up on individual DVD's. Granted, like any other genre, made-for-TV movies fall into the good, bad, and who cares pit, but it would be nice to see some, like this one get it's proper due.

Dead Men Tell No Tales is a well-written, produced, and acted mystery, intelligently designed in such a way to keep our interest.

I'd love to see this and many others get released on DVD.

Among many others, I'd love to see The Hanged Man (1964), Two For The Money (1972), The Other Man (1970), and One Of My Wives Is Missing.
