Description by OLDIES.com:

Patty Duke leads a formidable cast in this high-wire suspense thriller from the legendary producer of star-laden disaster epics, Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno). A cable car turns into a perilous death trap when an electrical storm stalls the sightseeing tram 7,000 feet in the air. Buffeted by winds that hamper their rescue, eight suspended passengers face a deadly night of terror dangling helplessly while the tram's weakened cable slowly starts snapping, one thin wire at a time. Featuring Cameron Mitchell, Bert Convy and Donna Mills, Hanging by a Thread is a hair-raising blend of excitement and danger that's good to the very last drop!

Product Description:

"Master of disaster" Irwin Allen was so confident of his talents in 1979 that he actually thought he could stretch out a suspense tale for a full 200 minutes. Originally telecast in two parts, Allen's HANGING BY A THREAD concerns a group of friends and tourists, trapped in a sightseeing tram that dangles precariously over a yawning chasm. You might start yawning as well during the film's entirely dispensable flashback sequences. The "suspense" scenes themselves aren't bad, permitting an all-star cast (Sam Groom, Patty Duke Astin, Joyce Bulifant, Donna Mills, Burt Convy et. al.) to alternate between screaming and looking terrified. HANGING BY A THREAD was first broadcast on May 8 and 9, 1979.
