DOWNLOAD THIS FILM

Note: IMDb states the runtime of this film is 90 minutes, this copy is only 70, since we can see a TV logo in some parts of the movie I guess this is the edited for television version, unfortunately haven’t been able to find a copy with the original runtime, seems to be quite rare, my guess is the original version was aired only a couple times, maybe only once and never again.

How would you rate this movie?

    Hi Jon,
    According to the book “Movies Made for Televison” by Alvin H. Marrill, many TV features, especially those filmed in the 1970s, were made to fit into a 90 minute slot, but the actual running time is closer to 70-72 minutes. So I suspect that this is the complete version. Likewise, TV movies of that era with a running time of 120 minutes are usually only app. 100 minutes in actual length.

    As an avid 70s TV movie watch yes I definitely agree as most of these 70s TV movies were for the 90 minute slot, 70-75 actual run time plus commercials.

    Many thanks,
    Nick
