Hallmark Hall of Fame is a long-running (since 1951) U.S. anthology series of Made-for-TV Movies produced and sponsored by Hallmark Cards and broadcast on an occasional basis over several different networks, most recently the Hallmark Channel. Outside of PBS programs and the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts, Hallmark Hall of Fame is one of the few productions still sponsored and aired by a single corporate benefactor.
The films themselves include adaptations of literary classics as well as original works, and run the gamut from hard-hitting drama and tragedy, to soft-tissue Melodrama, to comedy and slice-of-life pics.
Not to be confused with movies made for the Hallmark Channel, which often aren't part of this series.
Notable entries in the series:
- Amahl and the Night Visitors - The first one, restaged several times.
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1982)
