Movies Made for Television: 1964-2004
(The Scarecrow Press 2168 pages, $300.00)
By Alvin H. Marill

With 5498 entries from 40 television seasons, this collection is the definitive resource on movies for television. Each entry includes airdate, network, cast, crew and a short synopsis. Listings are organized chronologically in four volumes (the fifth is an index), each covering roughly a decade. In his forward, Leonard Maltin accurately notes that this tome is valuable "for me and every other film researcher who needs an authoritative source for the least-documented aspect of modern filmmaking."
