Other TV remakes for the big screen that have popped into my head since I
last posted:
 
The Untouchables:  very good, and actually one of the first tv shows to
be made into a movie if memory serves, plus started a sort of trend of
awarding a best supporting actor to a relatively big name actor enjoying
a sort of career revitalization while ignoring the big star lead.  (See
The Fugitive)
 
Dragnet:  Yes, it's silly and kind of stupid, but I really enjoyed this
remake.
 
Car 54, Where Are You?:  I have not seen this one, but I have heard it
was a real stinker, sitting in the can for a couple years before playing
in theatres for about a week.  I think Siskel or Ebert even named it one
of the worst of the year.
