Would this qualify as a Bonus Feature?

On Twilight Time's 2014 release of The Killer Elite (1975) is included Noon Wine (1966).

Noon Wine originally aired as part of ABC Stage 67.

IMDB describes ABC Stage 67 as "A weekly anthology of one-hour plays, both original and adapted from literary sources."

Wikipedia describes it as "ABC Stage 67 is the umbrella title for a series of 26 weekly American television shows that included dramas, variety shows, documentaries and original musicals"

So every week over the course of 26 episodes, ABC Stage 67 aired a new, original 1 hour production. Some were dramas, some where musicals etc. etc.

Would Noon Wine just be considered an episode of the anthology television series ABC Stage 67 (I'm thinking similar to Tales from the Crypt, with obvious differences between the two but the comparison is there), or would it be considered a film which we could profile, kind of like how "The Wonderful World of Disney" is considered to be a television show that aired movies (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0132666/episodes?season=1).


Killer Elite release

Noon Wine

ABC Stage 67

I'd like to profile the film (will anyway as I'm not going to own something that had the likes of Sam Peckinpah, Olivia de Havilland and Jason Robards involved and not have it profiled) and share it with everyone if it falls under the Bonus Feature Film section of the rules.

If it's 40 minutes or more it's a bonus feature film. If it's not, then just goes in other special features.

I remember that conversation from earlier this year and I remember it being introduced as a possible addition to the contribution rules in that forum, but, well, it's this place lol and those things get updated with every new ice age 

I've already profiled it in my local and have it attached ready to submit (just haven't done it yet) and I can confirm it's approximately 51 minutes long.

I just wasn't sure if it would be considered an episode of a TV series and if folks would have a problem with that being profiled as a Bonus Feature Film or if it could be considered a made for TV film since the series it came from was an anthology series and every production was a brand new production.

TBH, either way I think it should totally be able to be profiled, but I don't know if anyone else would agree with me.

I would consider it a TV episode and as such not have it's own profile per the rules. Just like I see the Masters of horror a TV Series and those being episodes.

Those episodes may not have their own profiles, but they are profiled. If there were multiple episodes from the same show, I'd be for profiling them together, but I don't see anything in the rules that would suggest not to profile it at all.

The Rules do say not to profile shorts or episodes. In my eyes that would be enough to tell me not to give it it's own profile. At least not for the online database.

The answer to this question depends on what your definition of 'feature film' is.  While I might consider a TV movie, a feature film, I would not consider a one hour episode, from an anthology series, a feature film.  But that's just me.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.
