    Here's a 1987 TV movie I'd forgotten about - Ghost of a Chance, with the odd but interesting combination of Dick Van Dyke and Redd Foxx. Apparently it was once released on a UK PAL VHS tape, but no disc so far.

    I hope Warner’s release the complete Moviola soon.
    “The search for Scarlett” episode is on the box set of GWTW but I would love to have the three part series made available.

    Since it's Christmas season, I wish Fox would give us the 1973 remake of "Miracle on 34th Street" digitally remastered.

    You'd think the 1973 version would be included with the classic original, given that it's from Fox Television, part of the same studio as the original.

    My other wish is for City in Fear, with David Janssen, Robert Vaughn, Mickey Roarke, Perry King, Susan Sullivan and William Daniels.

    Mini-series: The Last Convertible

    I only saw this when it was rerun once a week during a summer on NBC. It was edited into one hour programs. I really enjoyed the book and would like to see it as originally aired.

    I would really like the 1992 TV movie "In The Company Of Darkness" -- primarily because parts of it were filmed in my home town of Riverside, Illinois -- although according to the film, it takes place in Riverside, Wisconsin. Well, that's Hollywood for you.

    On the 40th anniversary of the Miracle at Lake Placid, I'm bumping this thread to express my wish for the release of the 1981 TV-movie "Miracle On Ice" which IMO is a much better telling of the story than the early 2000s movie "Miracle". Despite the fact that Karl Malden is completely miscast as Herb Brooks (30 years too old; Robert Conrad IMO would have been the absolute perfect choice) the film is a more accurate telling and unlike "Miracle" which gave us no authentic location shooting and used fake PBP recreations, the original film wisely made use of the original broadcast calls and filmed some scenes at Lake Placid and also outside Madison Square Garden (for the scenes of the Soviets pre-Olympics drubbing of the team).

    The Brother of the Bell is my favorite of the bunch: really weird and really socially realistic.

    Steven Spielberg's last telefilm for Universal and last television work: I prefer Savage over this one.

    Here's a good one with Jim Phelps, sorry, Peter Graves. It's a good catastrophy entry paired with a family drama.

    It's a good one that is inspired by a former Twilight Zone segment: “King Nine Will Not Return” (season 2)
    which refers to the true event of The Lady Be Good mystery.

    Still hoping WAC will provide a DVD or Blu for THE BURNING SEASON with Raul Julia. Much more timely now that when it was made.

    12:01 (issued on DVD but I'd like a Blu)

    Daughter of the Mind (creepy Paul Gallico story)

    Call Her Mom (guilty pleasure: Connie Stevens as a frat house mother)

    The Cat Creature (Gail Sondergaard, Keye Luke, John Carradine)

    Dead of Night (trilogy by Richard Matheson et al)

    Hound of the Baskervilles (Stewart Granger; mediocre at best, re-uses Vic Mizzy score from The Night Walker, and one of Goldsmith's Thriller scores)

    Melvin Purvis G-Man and The Kansas City Massacre
    (Dale Robertson plays it big; way too much music replacement on recent tv showings; at least one of these had a mediocre DVD years ago)

    One of My Wives Is Missing (best of many takes on the 'Chase a Crooked Shadow' set-up; current DVDs use PD sources)

    The People (Francis Ford Coppola produced, with Kim Darby, Wm Shatner, Dan O'Herlihy)

    Pursuit (Michael Crichton thriller, written and directed by MC)

    Reflections of Murder (atmospheric Americanization of Diabolique)

    A Taste of Evil (if I recall correctly a Jimmy Sangster rewrite of one of his suspense mysteries for Hammer; the studio wasn't pleased when they got wind of this tv version)

    They Call It Murder (Pilot for Doug Selby series with Jim Hutton; present DVDs I've seen are from PD sources)

    To Kill a Cop (Sometimes edited when shown on Encore, where the colors were faded; airings in two parts were complete)

    Sherlock Holmes in New York (a way to make use of the NYC sets for Hello Dolly; nice production, deserves a Blu - there's one in the UK but not the US)

    Sherlock Holmes Returns and The Return of Sherlock Holmes (two takes on Sherlock unfrozen in the late 20th Century; not great but essential for Sherlock collectors)

    You'll Never See Me Again (Cornell Woolrich thriller in the vein of 'Dying Room Only' but better)

    PS: Have been informed Kino Lorber has a blu-ray of Pursuit. I totally missed it but a few clicks will take care of that.
