Sometimes you almost think they don’t want you to watch. I’m not sure a more generic title could be conjured up than Revenge! (1971), an ABC TV movie that sounds like it should sit next to nacho chips and beer on the discount supermarket shelf. But, of course, it’s the ingredients that count, and with a stellar cast and a taut script by Psycho
screenwriter Joseph Stefano
, Revenge! has enough flavor to entertain the more discerning palette.
Originally airing on November 6th, this ABC Movie of the Weekend was up against NBC’s Saturday Night at the Movies
and CBS’s Mary Tyler Moore
Show / The New Dick Van Dyke Show
, but won out again. Revenge! may be a generic title, but ABC’s brand is strong.
