And as a result, they gave the movie 1 lousy star.

That movie looks like a Barbarella ripoff, and Barbarella was no highly acclaimed film either.

Incidentally, the actress was Dorothy Stratten, Playboy Playmate of the Year. She's remembered because her husband murdered her.

That sounds like it could be Mike Rapchak on the ending voiceover.

Right about Dorothy Stratten...profiled in the movies "Death Of A Centerfold" and "Star 80". As I recall she was in the middle of filming another movie--"They All Laughed"--when she was killed.

This had to have been a reissue trailer. Before the VCR's popularity, movie theatres had rereleased movies.

I noticed that after that "Forces of evil" line,the ad went silent for about 3 seconds.Then I saw that same trailer on YouTube,and I think I know why.During those 3 seconds,the announcer said,"Playboy's 'Playmate of the Year' is...".

Guess whatever station that ran that ad didn't want that fact to be known.

Galaxina was produced by Crown Pictures International. This is the same film company that was known for its enjoyably trashy films as The Van, Van Nuys Blvd., and Weekend Pass. I have seen some of the movies, and they were fun to watch. For a list of all of Crown's films, go to www.crownintlpictures.com.

This could have been perfect for an MST3K episode!

I have never seen this movie. I guess it's the black cloud that hangs over Dorthy Stratten She used to work at at my neighborhood Dairy Queen. There was a documentary on her her life where they interviewed the owner of the DQ. It was a very creepy film.

This movie can now be found on Mill Creek's "Big Screen Bombshells" 12 movie set. I found it at Border's for $5.00. For that price and 11 other movies you can't beat the price. Mill Creek however has bought the Crown International pictures library of films. The VHS versions were released by the long gone Vestron Video.

My dad has this film on LaserDisc. I have seen the opening. Lots of crackles and pops in the sound.

Added the voiceover info to clip description. (In New York City, the ending voiceover - on all the commercial VHF stations in town, whether network or indie - would have been NBC / WNBC Channel 4's Howard Reig.)

Yet the oddly phallic special effect at :11 stayed in.

He will be missed.

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.

Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - "DePaul Basketball" (Station ID, 1978) by FieldGal44 on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12:36am CT

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"

I may be wrong, but that mic might look like the Electro-Voice EV-667 . . .
