A Timeless Made For TV Movie Classic
20 March 2005 | by (minneapolis, minnesota, on the planet Earth) – See all my reviews

James At 15 is possibly the best made for TV movie ever made in the history of made for TV movies. Lance Kerwin was hitting his acting stride when he made this movie for TV. My favorite scene in this made for TV movie is when Lance hooks up with Kate Jackson and they thumb their way across the USA. I remember thinking when I saw this made for TV movie back in 1977 that it would be so cool to hitch hike with one of Charlie's Angels. Kate Jackson was my favorite angel. I liked her on The Rookies. The fantasy sequences in James At 15 are done really well. I liked it when Janes fantasized that he was Robin Hood and he and Kate shot arrows. Kate looked good in green tights. I would like to see a new James At 15 made in 2007 only they would have to call it James at 45. Anyway, this made for TV movie did an excellent job of showing how hard it is to be 15.
