I got this idea while reading THIS THREAD about Pinocchio and The Emperor of the Night (1987).
As I click through pages on AMAZON I am often surprised at how many movies, TV shows, TV specials and more are available on DVD. Good, bad and worse- most everything is on there.
But occasionally I look for a film, only to find it hasn't made it to DVD.
Here are a few:
Goldie & the Boxer/Goldie & the Boxer go to Hollywood: These two films were made for TV in the late 1970's and early 1980's.
Taking place in 1946 it stars OJ Simpson as a soldier who ends up with custody of his friend's daughter. Phil Silvers and Gordon Jump co-starred in the first film. These films were recently shown on Encore.
Hambone & Hillie: This is an adorable film about a dog that travels across the country to go home (sorta like Homeward Bound) along the way Hambone meets characters played by Alan Hale Jr (The Skipper from Gilligan's Island), Wil Wheaton, OJ Simpson and Nicole Eggert. Best of all his owner was played by the legendary Lillian Gish!
Angels Revenge: a 1979 movie also known as Angels' Brigade and Seven from Heaven. It did appear on MST3K and is available on DVD as part of that episode, however, the original film is NOT available.
This is a pretty cool film where some sexy ladies team up to fight drug dealers. Appearing in the film are Jim Backus, Alan Hale Jr. and Jack Palance.
Fraiser the Lovable Lion: This was a neat 1970s film about a guy who can communicate telepathically with Frasier the Lion (a real lion from the Lion Country Safari in SoCal.)
The Kid with the 200 IQ, The Kid from Left Field, The Kid with the Broken Halo: A trio of Gary Coleman/Robert Guillaume flicks (I think they were made for TV.) My favorite is "Broken Halo" where Gary plays an angel.
On the Right Track/Scouts Honor: Two more Gary Coleman films. One he lives in a locker, the other has him trapped in a cave.
Return to Gilligan's Island/Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island: The first TV movie (Rescue from Gilligan's Island) is available... but I want to see the Harlem Globetrotters play basketball against a robot!
Scavenger Hunt: This is a remake/ripoff of It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. It features Scatman Cruthers, Vincent Price and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
RAD: One of my all time favorites, this cheesy BMX film hasn't shown up on DVD!
Ski School: A silly romp featuring Dean Cameron and Stuart Fratkin who would go on to star in my favorite unreleased TV show "They Came From Outer Space."
No Holds Barred: Hulk Hogan's big screen grudge match against Zeus! I love this film!
Tougher than Leather: Run DMC play detectives in this film. RUN DMC!
Those are just a few off the top of my head (most of which I have seen recently on VHS.)
Does anyone else have any to add to this list??
