Sadly one has not been released yet featuring a wonderful array of 70's TV-Movie Scores, but if it was released, what ABC TV Movie Scores would you most like to see included on it? I would hope and think there would be enough scores to fill up 5 Discs from all those cool 70's TV-Movies.

Perhaps these ads will bring back some memories of THE ABC MOVIE OF THE WEEK and give you some ideas:

CROWHAVEN FARM and DAUGHTER OF THE MIND scored by Robert Drasnin



Here's some Daughta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT1UqQG5XNg



TRILOGY OF TERROR scored by Robert Cobert




BRIAN'S SONG scored by Michel Legrand. TRAPPED and THAT CERTAIN SUMMER scored by Gil Melle

A little early for April Fools, arent you? Frankly I wouldn't go with that selection, but even so, probably more like a like 4 discs.

A taste of Theme from THE SCREAMING WOMAN by John Williams. In the end credits he is credited: Theme by John Williams. No one is credited for actual Music score. Interesting. IMDB credits Hal Mooney, Jerry Goldsmith and Morton Stevens as: composer "Stock Music" uncredited and Mooney as Music Supervisor.

Here's the movie itself. See if you can locate any of the Goldsmith and Stevens stock music:

Yeah, yeah, let her scream, who cares. You're omitting a more relevant tv movie - THE LAST CHILD (1971). wink

I believe the 1972 TV-Movie CRAWLSPACE scored by Jerry Goldsmith was produced by and shown on CBS and therefore not a ABC Movie of the Week title. But it definitely I think, deserves a CD Release of it's own.

A small sampling:

Or how about Hugo Friedhofer's score for "The Over The Hill Gang" and his rejected score for its sequel "The Over The Hill Gang Rides Again"? Leonard Rosenman's score for "In Broad Daylight"? Patrick Williams' score for "The Failing Of Raymond"?

Allow me to add:
Killdozer (Melle)
The Last Child (Rosenthal)
The People (Coppola)
I’ll wager suites or scores for these 75 minute “movies” clock in under 25 minutes each. That leaves lots of room on a 5 disc set. I’m just sayin’...

The closest we got was the FSM TV Omnibus, but I believe it didn't sell that great.

The Intrada of Duel was about 34 minutes minus alternates so yeah probably.

Of course one of my favorite things about "THE MOVIE OF THE WEEK" was it's great use of Burt Bacharach's "NIKKI" Theme that he wrote for his dear daughter. Just love that music!

Bacharach's NIKKI!

There is no rejected score. It's nothing more some confusion, apparently, by a fellow member who I'm guessing doesn't have English as a first language (not complaining or making fun of him, I'm just saying), and mis-understood completely what a book said.

In case Zooba is unaware: music from "Trilogy of Terror" is available on Cobert's "The Night Stalker and Other Classic Thrillers" CD (6'10").

You know, I'll say it. The title of this thread is annoying. It immediately got me excited only to be pissed when it was just clickbait.

Come on people, title your threads less obnoxiously.

Sorry Scott. No obnoxia intended.

I've renamed the thread. Glad you got excited though. I would be very happy and excited if it were to happen.

Although I obviously know THE SCREAMING WOMAN due to the Williams connection, I'm not really familiar with the "ABC Movie of the Week" concept. Too old and too US for me to have any relationship to it. Can someone tell me more about this, and whether there exists a list somewhere of the titles under this headline?

This gives you a pretty good look at it Thor. The book, The ABC TV Movie of the Week Companion, I'm sure would have a comprehensive list of all the titles and a bunch of informative info.

Here's some cool stuff on it. Seems after 1975, production of Original TV Movies from ABC petered out and they focused on WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERES of Theatrical Feature Films.

A great version of Burt Bacharach's cool "Nikki" Theme was used as the Theme for THE MOVIE OF THE WEEK. I love that theme!

Thanks! I knew that DUEL was a TV movie, but not an "ABC movie of the week".
