Subject: re: Remakes
 
Offhand, here are some TV movies:
 
CINDY - A retelling of Cinderella, set in Harlem (I think), 1940s.
 
LITTLEST MATCHGIRL - At least I think this is a remake, with the role of
the matchgirl cast with Keisha Knight Pulliam of Cosby fame.
 
POLLY - A musical version of Pollyanna, directed by Debbie Allen, starring
her sister Felicia and Keisha Pulliam.
 
There was a comedy version of _A Christmas Carol_ with Robert Guillame a
few years ago.  I can't recall if that was a full length TV movie or a 30
minute show.  And I haven't heard of a female version of _The Defiant
Ones_, but there was a remake in the late '80's with Robert Urich and Carl
Weathers.
