Tv Movies & more (saved)by ReelRarities | created - 31 Jan 2013 | updated - 2 days ago | Public
My list of rarities from (mostly) the 60's & up that should have had their dvd release by now but sadly have not. We especially enjoy the 70's 'suspicion & suspense', 'teen trauma', and 'tragic but true' made for tv movies that started airing in the 70's as a 'movie of the week'.
The ABC Movie of the Week and others that followed brought us some of the best... casts of wonderful actors we'd often only seen on the big screen, now in our homes... and these TvMs always had something going on that sucked you in and kept you watching :)
When Looking at my lists please note there is a "Sort By" option, I prefer to look at titles by date, earliest to latest... but can choose other options to view by using the Sort By option ;)
