A Rare Find On My Part...
I was stumbling through my TV listings recently and found a listing for the movie "Murder in Peyton Place". I decided to tape it because I knew it would be a rare find and if I didn't tape it, I wouldn't get the chance to see it again for a very long time.

"Murder in Peyton Place" features some (maybe most) of the original television cast (Dorothy Malone, Ed Nelson, etc.) reprising their roles for the movie, which was broadcast on NBC on October 3, 1977. (The original TV series was broadcast on ABC from 1964 to 1969.) I didn't see the original series (it was before my time), but I heard it was an interesting series and according to some people, it was considered to be the first prime-time dramatic serial on television. ("Dallas" was more popular in the 1980s.)

After taping the movie, I then proceeded to watch it. I find the movie to be quite interesting. It was like you were back in the town you once visited on your TV screens in the '60s.

Anyway, it's a good movie (in my opinion) and if there's a die-hard "Peyton Place" collector out there, he/she should consider adding this movie to their collection. It's something you don't see often nowadays.
