|Seventies & Eighties Made-For-TV Movies - Q|
QUARANTINED 1970 74 min. John Dehner, Gary Collins, Sharon Farrell, Wally Cox, Sam Jaffe, Susan Howard, Dan Ferrone. Directed by Leo Penn. The daily tribulations of a famous country clinic run by the Bedford family, complicated by problems of a rebellious son, an uncooperative movie star, and a cholera epidemic. Fast-paced, convincing situations, decent dialogue. Above average. QUEEN OF THE STARDUST BALLROOM 1975 100 min. Maureen Stapleton, Charles Durning, Michael Brandon, Michael Strong, Charlotte Rae. Directed by Sam O'Steen. A beautifully realized love story between a widowed grandmother and a married mailman who meet at a local dance hall. A filmed song of joy by Jerome Koss, with sensitive performances by the two leads. Above average. THE QUEST 1976 100 min. Tim Matheson, Kurt Russell, Brian Keith, Keenan Wynn, Will Hutchins, Cameron Mitchell, Neville Brand, Morgan Woodward, Art Lund. Directed by Lee H. Katzin. Two brothers search the Old West for their sister, captured years earlier by Indians. Evokes memories of John Ford's THE SEARCHERS but worth seeing for the colorful performances of veteran actors Keith, Wynn and Mitchell, and for refreshing touches like a horse-camel race. Script by Tracy Keenan Wynn. Later evolved into a series. Average. A QUESTION OF GUILT 1978 100 min. Tuesday Weld, Ron Leibman, Peter Masterson, Alex Rocco, Viveca Lindfors, Lana Wood. Directed by Robert Butler. A flashy, fun-loving divorcee is accused of murdering her child in this drama obviously inspired by the headline-making Alice Crimmins case in N.Y.C. Leibman's character is named Martin Kazinsky, but this has no relation to his later KAZ series. Average. A QUESTION OF HONOR 1982 150 min. Ben Gazzara, Paul Sorvino, Robert Vaughn, Tony Roberts, Anthony Zerbe. Directed by Jud Taylor. TV's answer to PRINCE OF THE CITY, with Gazzara as an honest cop caught in a trap set by ruthless fed Vaughn.

Barry Bostwick, Blair Brown, Susan Browning, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Peter Masterson, Virginia Vestoff. Directed by Daniel Petrie.
