TV Movies That I've Seen Or Want to See (A-G)

by HauntedGirl | created - 21 Dec 2010 | updated - 23 Oct 2017 | Public

I am extremely fond of telefilms, mini-series and anthology series from the late 60s to the mid 70s, with a particular interest in thrillers, mysteries, and supernatural themed subjects, therefore you will see some films listed from other decades, but a predominance of my selections are from the TV Movie's heyday: The 1970s.
