Here?s a few:

 

Scarecrow of Romney Marsh , Alias, Dr. Syn 1964

Disney - give us the originally aired 3-parter, introduced by Walt himself

& re-mastered please, since last time Disney aired it (not recently) it looked terrible.

 

The Strange Monster of Strawberry Cove 1971

Based on a Mad Scientists' Club story by Bertrand Brinley

I doubt they?ll release this now that there's a movie out titled ?13 going on 30?

 

Pirates of the Carribbean - Wonderful World of Disney television show - color

 

The Swamp Fox ? remaining episodes #4 ? 8, January 1960 & January 1961

PERSECUTION

aka

THE GRAVEYARD; SHEBA; THE TERROR OF SHEBA

 

A horror film staring Lana Turner!

 

"Persecution" was an attempt to do an English variation on "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962), one of the more influential psycho-thrillers of the previous decade, which had Bette Davis and Joan Crawford engaged in Grand Guignol melodramatics. It had created its own fad of films with other actresses beyond their prime lining up to chew the scenery ? indeed Hammer had made half-a-dozen of these themselves in the previous decade.

Persecution throws Lana Turner into the fray
