The Woman Hunter has been released by various public domain companies. The copy I have has pretty decent picture quality. Picture Mommy Dead has also been released. I got it at the 99 cent store about a year ago.
"Congratulations. You're still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model."

"The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out," Picture Mommy Dead, a Bert I Gordon ('Mr BIG') production with Don Ameche, Zsa Zsa Gabor, etc. Some talk was that it may have been a theatrical film that had a very limited theatrical run and was sold to tv where it was presented as a 'premiere'.Thank you for that information. Much appreciated! Mark

I'm still hoping for: THE SAVAGE BEES (1976) --still the best 'killer bee' movie to date KILLDOZER (1974) SPECTRE (1977) WHERE HAVE ALL THE PEOPLE GONE? (1974) FEAR NO EVIL (1969) RITUAL OF EVIL (1969) SOMETHING EVIL (1970) --early Spielberg THE WORLD OF DARKNESS (1977) THE WORLD BEYOND (1978) BIRDS OF PREY (1973) --a decent edition; the old discontinued VCI disc was apparently quite sub-par

How about The Neon Ceiling?

Stowaway to the Moon with Lioyd Bridges. I shudder to think what would happen if something like this REALLY did occur during a NASA Flight!

A few more: The Omega Connection - A Disney two part telemovie back in the late seventies. A Cold Night's Death --- still can't bring myself to watch the few last minutes. I know something bad is about to happen. James

Well, my list would include (off the top of my head) Crowhaven Farm, Love Is Never Silent The Questor Tapes (it might have been mentioned earlier) kind of off topic, but most of the Broadway Musicals re-done for television (especially Once Upon A Mattresss with Carol Burnett and Ken Berry, and You're A Good Man Charlie Brown) and my niece would love Parent Trap III and Parent Trap IV (the Hawaiian one). I'm glad that Probe came out - would love for the series Search to follow. David

I would also pick up the three Gilligan's Island tv movies. Not so much for their spectacular writing or production, but for completeness sake. Anyone remember The Over-The-Hill Gang and The Over-The-Hill Gang Rides Again??? These were just fun, fluff tv movies that I wouldn't mind havng. My wife found a copy of these a few years ago but the quality was HORRIBLE, darned near unwatchable!! I would like to have a nice copy of each. I would also like to have the two reunion tv movies for The Wild, WIld West but refuse to buy the whole series set for 'em when I already have the individual season sets. Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Another one: the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea version with Ben Cross. James

Amateur Night at the Dixie Bar & Grill- written and directed by Joel Schumacher, it's basically his version of Robert Altman's Nashville with emphasis on comedy. Victor French and Louise Latham play the owners of the title locale, and one night it seems everyone wants to win the prize, even though the "Disco Killer" is on the loose. His first mass shootings were in alphabetical order, and now it's up to "D"! So naturally the employees are scared their place may be next! The fun begins as the contestants show their stuff, including, Don Johnson, Roz Kelly, Jamie Farr, Tanya Tucker, Ed Begley, Jr, and a young actor making an early acting appearance- Dennis Quaid! The Nashville connection is more obvious with an appearance by Henry Gibson, who was in the Altman film. A very entertaining movie. And who produced this country- themed TV movie from 1979? Would you believe MOTOWN RECORDS? I'd love to see Susan Hayward's final project Say Goodbye Maggie Cole released. This was produced by Aaron Spelling as a pilot, and I watched its original airing as an ABC Movie of the Week in 1972. The ratings were quite good, and if she hadn't become ill with the cancer that ultimately killed her, I think it would've made a great series, a female Marcus Welby. BTW, Dusty Springfield performed the theme song, which is available on CD!
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

Would the animated version of Lost in Space featuring Dr. Smith and the Robot be eligible? I would love to see that.
Posted September 15 2011 - 06:37 PM
I Love a Mystery (1973) Where Have All The People Gone? (1974) Savages (1974) Once Upon A Mattress (the first two versions) Crowhaven Farm (1970) Somebody told me that it's actually available somewhere, but I can't find it! Fresno (1986) technically a mini-series I am also baffled that there isn't an official release for the 3 Gilligan's Island reunion movies. You'd think Turner or CBS or whoever owns it would have done this years ago. I don't think I've ever even seen the 3rd one in the PD releases. Same goes for the two Over-the-Hill-Gang movies, as Thomas pointed out. I think they're star-studded enough, and significant enough to have a better release than the crap copy I picked up at the 99 cent store lol
