    With the news that Yoko Ono has recently authorised a major motion picture telling of her relationship and marriage to John, does anyone remember this previous attempt starring Mark McGann as John and guest starring Peter Capaldi as George Harrison?

    And what did you think of it?

    Trivia: Originally a different actor was cast to play John in this made for tv movie.

    Until Yoko found out his name: Mark Chapman.

    She sacked him.

    Hey! Let's go back in time and stop President Kennedy being assassinated!

    Does anybody else recall this time travel t.v. movie, starring Robert (Starman) Hays and Catherine Hicks, along with Sam Wanamaker?

    *****SPOILER WARNING****

    Remember this fondly. I'm sure I had the VHS release at one point. As a sucker for a time travel story and the Kennedy assassination, this played straight into my wheelhouse. Particularly like subplot regarding the brother killed in Nam. Put an entirely different slant on his motives for preventing the assassination.

    *****SPOILER WARNING****

    Haven't seen this for about 20 years. Thanks Doc, I will try to dig this out tonight. See if my opinion has changed.

    This film used to scare the hell out of my little sister. Which used to crack me up back in the day. I haven't seen it in years. I'd love to see it now. Of course, it would look pretty bad. But, it would bring me back to the fun days. I'd have to have a few Miller Lite's and a bowl of popcorn and give my sis a ring to laugh about it.

    Yeah, I remember this film from my childhood.

    It often aired late on a Friday or Saturday night.

    I haven't seen it in nearly 40 years, but I'd watch it again if I ever come across it on TV.

    Fun movie I haven't seen in years with James Brolin. He's accidentally locked in a department store overnight after he's mugged in the men's room (I believe) and finds himself held at bay by six vicious Doberman guard dogs. It's not as good as "Duel", of course. But, I can recall it being an entertaining film. I know my father was terrified of dobermans and this really spooked him!

    Some of these ABC "Movie of the Week" films are hard to find - but, are pretty damn good b-movies.

    Poor Bill Shatner....

    Before Star Trek: The Motion Picture came along, he was taking any work he could find. Including this film.

    But still worth a watch, with his role as an alcoholic priest being a highlight.

    The Norliss Tapes with Roy Thinnes, Satan's Triangle with Doug McClure, The two Night Stalker movies as well as Trilogy of Terror with Karen Black, Crowhaven Farm Etc... TV was so much better back in the seventies and the differences in ITVs regional transmissions! I had Anglia (which was pretty dull) ATV, which was okay and LWT/Thames which gave us a lot of great late night entertainment!

    I had Granada and later Yorkshire.

    And three UK channels only to start with, of course.

    The arrival of a fourth UK channel was a HUGE event! lol :emoji_alien:

    But yes, those tv movies were often scarier... eerier... than the theatrical Hollywood fare...
