I knew that we’re all looking forward to seeing Benedict Cumberbatch play the title character in the 2016 MCU film, Doctor Strange. However, did you know that the Cumberbatch film will not be the first time that a movie has centered around the character of Dr. Stephen Strange?
It’s true! In 1978, there was a made-for-TV movie that featured the sorcerer Dr. Strange (played here by Peter Hooten) battling none other than Morgan Le Fay (Jessica Walter)! I watched it a few months ago with my friends in the Late Night Movie Gang and it was actually a lot of fun. I should admit that I have absolutely no idea whether or not it was true to the original comic book but still, it was enjoyable in a trippy 70s sort of way.
