🤗 Special thanks to :
clemensthrills for production info and news clippings
Christ Tufts for director and producer credits
Cary at LOC for tracking down many of the "lost" installments.

This is the first complete list ever compiled of the films that were broadcast on ABC's Wide World of Mystery. Many of the U.S. installments are lost and long forgotten. So much so that many confuse WWOM as nothing more than the U.S. broadcast title for the U.K. series Thriller. Episode guides typically included less than half the films listed here!

WWOM was a late-night film presentation series spun off of Wide World of Entertainment in January…
