(press photo via eBay)

Today I continue my list of 101 Groovy TV Movies Worth Watching with When Michael Calls, which originally aired as ABC's Movie of the Weekend on Saturday, February 5, 1972 (it was rerun as ABC's Tuesday Movie of the Week on April 10, 1973).

Directed by Philip Leacock (The Daughters of Joshua Cabe) and written by James Bridges (who would later direct and co-write The China Syndrome and Urban Cowboy), the movie stars Elizabeth Ashley as a woman who begins receiving phone calls from her supposedly dead nephew Michael. The cast also includes Ben Gazzara and Michael Douglas (who would later produce and star in The China Syndrome).

Loving this series!

Again its been years since I've seen this one but I do remember it being a rather good one because of Michael Douglas and especially Elizabeth Ashley.

My batting average so far has been good through I do need to watch This House Possessed. I might have seen it yearsssssssss ago but I have no memory of it and it has Patrick Cassidy so it's already got a special allure.

I'm glad you're enjoying my TV movies series, Joel. However, Parker Stevenson is in This House Possessed, while Patrick Cassidy is in Midnight Offerings.

Oops! Well Parker isn't quite at the same level as Patrick Cassidy but I'll still give it a go. I should probably take another look at Midnight Offerings too since that's where Patrick is.
