    I see that CBS is releasing "The Horror at 37,000 Feet" on Mar 18. I would love to see this succeed and hope it leads to more tv movies being released. Is there any way to find out what other tv movies CBS controls?

    Let's see Chuck Connors, Roy Thinnes, Buddy Ebsen, William Shatner, Russell Johnson, Frances Nuyen, Paul Winfield and H. M. Wynant...lot of iconic TV stars in a TV movie. I may pick this up for the laughs at 37,000 feet. ;)

    You can look up what TV movies CBS and Paramount have the rights to by going to IMDB and seeing what ones were made by Paramount Television (type in name of company, then look for titles.)

    Never heard of this... is Shatner reprising his role from the classic Twilight Zone episode? :)

    Would that include titles that they have acquired as well as titles that were shot through Paramount? I do remember some of these tv movies being shot through non-major production companies.

    No, it a completely different role. He plays a fallen priest who is extremely cynical and drinks too much. His character undergoes some significant changes as the movie progresses but I don't want to give away the plot.

    I agree with those who wish more tv movies from the 70"s would be released. Particularly the fright flicks genre. I just bought and watched the officially released version of The Initiation of Sarah. That was great to get. Two other titles which jump into my mind are Killer Bees (Kate Jackson), and Satan's Triangle (Doug Mcclure).

    Here's a couple more. The Cat Creature with David Hedison and written by Robert Bloch. Dan Curtis' Curse of the Black Widow.
