| "The Trip to Bountiful"
I just wanted to express my disagreement with labeling "The Trip to Bountiful" as TV movie. It was a 60 minute live broadcast, so it is certainly not a "TV movie" in the sense of later productions of greater running time, typically 90 to 120 minutes, and shot on film. In the film community, TV movies are actually called MOW's. This was because of an ABC weekly show called "Movie of the Week" which ran 90 minutes. The programs that we now know as TV movies began with a remake of "The Killers" by Universal television. The cast included Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, John Cassavetes, Clu Gulager and Ronald Reagan. The picture, directed by Don Siegel, was deemed as excessively violent for television and ended up as a theatrical release. So the year 1964 is considered the inaugural year and TV movies soon became a programming staple for the networks.
