Synopsis

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
In this made-for-television version of Stevenson's classic tale of terror and suspense, a crazy doctor develops a formula that turns him into a madman. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Turn of the Screw
Lynn Redgrave stars in this eerie TV adaptation of Henry James' 1898 gothic novelette. Hired as governess to a pair of troublesome English orphans (Jasper Jacob and Eva Griffith), Miss Cubberly finds herself in some very strange surroundings. Even stranger is the behavior of the children, leading Miss Cubberly to the inescapable conclusion that her charges have been possessed by unholy spirits. An earlier and better-known version of The Turn of the Screw was filmed in 1961 under the title The Innocents. The Turn of the Screw was first telecast in two parts -- on April 15 and 16, 1974 -- as part of ABC's Wide World Mystery anthology. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Dracula
This TV-movie adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel of the "undead" was adapted by Richard Matheson and photographed by Oswald Morris. As the titular count, Jack Palance is a reluctant victim of an unwelcome fate, rather than a grinning bloodsucker. Nigel Davenport co-stars as Van Helsing, vampire-hunter deluxe, who pursues the count with his bagful of hammers and stakes. Much of the Stoker novel that had been eliminated in earlier versions has been restored by Matheson. Originally slated for telecast in October of 1973, Dracula was reshuffled to February 8, 1974, due to the late-breaking vice-presidential nomination of Gerald Ford. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Picture of Dorian Gray
This Dan Curtis made-for-TV effort was the seventh screen version of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. This time, newcomer Shane Bryant plays the debauched 19th-century nobleman who makes an unholy pact permitting him eternal youth and good looks. His multitudinous sins--and his actual age--are reflected in his portrait, which Gray keeps locked up in his attic. Nigel Davenport co-stars as Gray's elegantly corrupt mentor Sir Harry Wotton, while future Lou Grant star Linda Kelsey plays Dorian's unwitting sweetheart Beatrice Hallward, niece of the man who painted the cursed portrait. Originally videotaped and then transferred to film, the two-part Picture of Dorian Gray was first telecast April 23 and 24, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
