FORTRESS starring Rachel Ward as an Australian school teacher in a one-room schoolhouse. She and her students are kidnapped and the movie depicts their struggle to escape and then fight for their lives. AMAZING MOVIE :ROCK:

No, but with many of the studios, "Still exists only on videotape, and therefore only fit for SD Archive dumping, like Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is a distinct possibility.

I remembered the fact that, being an opportunistic network plagiarism of the I Know/Last Summer movies the Young People were into at the time, it was also based--loosely--on another not-too-shabby Lois Duncan teen novel. ("Gallows Hill"--And that's "loosely" in the Kevin Williamson sense of "The slasher guy wasn't even in the book!")

The Morning After (1974) - Dick Van Dyke in his best dramatic role as man fighting alcoholism. A Joey Scarbury recording of The Beatles' Yesterday plays over the final scene, which is likely an obstacle to this being released if home video rights to the song were not secured when the film was made.

Sticks and Bones (1973) - Scathing anti-Vietnam war drama with some surreal touches, directed by Robert Downey (he wasn't Sr. at the time). Supposedly CBS does have this in their archives and it was shot on videotape if I remember correctly. Half the network affiliates didn't carry this and it's probably still too hot to broadcast on TV today.

Not exactly a movie, but I'd love to see a release of Wild Palms (1993) in better quality than the mediocre DVD.

I remember watching it on NBC when it premiered. It was based on the YA book Gallows Hill by Lois Duncan, who also wrote the book I Know What You Did Last Summer.

It did make it to DVD, but it is out of print and going for about $50+. They aired a few other fun teen-thriller made-for-TV movies around that time, like Killing Mr. Griffin (also based on a Lois Duncan book) and Fall Into Darkness (based on the novel by Christopher Pike), but I've Been Waiting For You is by far the best of the bunch.

They used to air it on Lifetime quite a bit, but I haven't seen it on there in a while.

In Broad Daylight-True story about a town bully. Great performance by Brian Dennehy.

Conspiracy-True story about the 1942 Wannsee conference in which the nazi's laid out their plan for the "final solution". Chilling performances from Kenneth Branagh and Stanley Tucci.

Not to mention that the book-based TV "Killing Mr. Griffin" is considerably closer to the original Duncan teen-suspense plot than Kevin Williamson's goofy "Teaching Mrs. Tingle" plagiarism that Michael Medved called him on in public, which Kevin had tried to alibi/distance himself from before it opened.
(Medved's radio show, back when he was trying to smear Williamson on the Scream movies, interviewed Duncan that Williamson had tried to buy an adaptation of "Griffin", but had been turned down, and which Kevin later denied all knowledge of...."Old teacher Kevin had in high school", my aunt Fanny.)

Ah, the days of Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike...
I suppose they were the Twilight of our generation, but the new Twilight generations just don't understand.
