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

Yes indeed. And then released Theatrically in Europe I believe.

I remember seeing in on the night it was first shown on Television. Didn't even know who Steven Spielberg was at that time, but I knew the movie sure was something different and quite special!

Forgive my ignorance and pedantry, but wasn't ABC mostly just a network for showing TV Movies made by different studios, such as Paramount, Universal etc? I know there were "ABC Circle" films, but I can't distinguish them from the others. In Scotland in the early to mid '70s, most of the films mentioned so far in this thread turned up on network TV (in my case STV), and a few (a minority) on the BBC. The Friday night horror season generally showed the spookier ones, but the memory I have is of the Universal globe (and coda) at the end of a lot of them. Aaron Spelling's name became a familiar sight too.

Sooooo, if it were possible to do a release of some of those TV Movie scores, could they be released under the umbrella title of The ABC Movies of the Week Collection? Aren't the rights all over the place?

Right, now for the enthusiastic bit - I'd LOVE a box set of music from a whole bundle of those '70s TV Movies. Without mentioning any specific titles, their screenings on the telly during my formative years were what initiated me into the wonderful sonic worlds of Robert Prince, Robert Drasnin, Gil Mellé, Laurence Rosenthal and a very loooong etceeeeeteraaa.

Good point, but this is "fantasy football" for soundtracks. Reality doesnt apply, unless you're betting.

This one might be interesting:

Bill Bixby up for a little consensual date rape. In the days when "No" means "No", until a few more drinks and then it turns to "Yes".

1:09:58 has a nice "traveling music" sequence. Do you think it sounds like Basil?

The ABC Movie of the Week WHEN MICHAEL CALLS (1972) just reused Robert Drasnin's DAUGHTER OF THE MIND score and gave him no credit, but credited Lionel Newman. It appeared in the End Titles as: Music Supervised and Conducted by Lionel Newman.

Interesting.

Here's one of my favorites, the trashy Hollywood story "The Users" starring Jaclyn Smith...with a GREAT score by the one and only Maurice Jarre:

Hi Folks, as a reminder, you can embed youtube videos as follows:

Just DELETE the asterisks (otherwise, I wouldn't be able to show you, the system would think I am trying to embed a video):

Cool thread. I have a huge interest in the ABC Movies-Of-The-Week (and the CBS TV Movies). So many seem to be lost now.

I remember The Challenge, Death Race, Outrage, Trapped, Assault On The Wayne, ect.
