Salem's Lot

(CBS, 11/17/1979 and 11/24/1979, 2 Parts, 120 mins each, 4 hours). Best-sellling author Stephen King’s hugely popular 1975 chiller about modern-day vampirism in New England emerged as a two-part, four-hour film, with David Soul as a successful novelist who returns to his boyhood home and finds strange doings, behind many of which is a sinister-looking antique dealer played by James Mason. Emmy Award nominations went to Harry Sukman for his musical score, Jack Young and Ben Lane for their vampire makeup, and Gene Kroft for his title sequence graphic design. Later the film was repeated in a single-part three-hour version in 1981, and a cable-TV version running slightly under two hours aired under the title, “Salem’s Lot: The Movie.” In 2004 there would be a remake of the original two-parter.
