Captain America

1979

Rod Holcomb
Director
Universal Television
Studio

The newly minted Captain America has to stop a evil industrialist (Forrest, looking like a cross between William Shatner and Donald Trump) from re-enacting the irradiated gold supply plot from Goldfinger.

Very 1970s attempt to make a TV series out of a Marvel franchise alá The Incredible Hulk. It pretty much discards the Cap mythos, and fans used to the MCU will probably be aghast. For those who like old TV movies, it’s pleasantly goofy enough (even if it sometimes seems like an overlong episode of Chips).
