This brings back SOOOOO many memories, I LOVED this psa as a kid (and seeing it again, it hasn't lost any of it's magic) I am so glad that it has survived and I can finally see it again. Also right after it was a promo for my favorite show "Son of Svengoolie". WOW Fuzzy thanks for bringing me back!!! As Captain America says "You're Doing a Super-Hero Job, Keep it up - Fuzzy!! :)

Via the Googles:

Put'n On The Ritz - Best guess is that it eventually became a place called Cafe 22 (the addresses match based on a newspaper article), and was at one point the Lombard Beef n' Barrel. I gave up trying to figure out where the eff this place was.

Inn and Around - Became a nightclub called Temptations, changed names to "Come Back Inn Sports Bar & Grill", then went back to Temptations before closing in 2012. Yelp says there was also a club called Club VIP there at some point.

Saints & Sinners - Apparently next to a cemetery, how lovely. Now housing.

Erik the Red - Now an Irish pub called Blackthorn Pub.

Tovia Club - Now called the Chicago 21 Club. Most definitely no sign of 2-million dollar anything here.

The Vineyard - Looks like the whole shopping center was given a makeover at some point, so it sure as hell ain't there now.

Ships Rail Lounge - Looks like there was some legal bankruptcy mess over the Dolton Lodge; it eventually became the Dorchester Senior Center which, quite honestly, looks like the most depressing senior center ever.

From what I've read, NYC rights to "Her Twelve Men" were held on and off by WOR Channel 9 for years.

Ok, I can do that. :-)

I would love to see the Her Twelve Men bumper art card as a cover photo on the Facebook page. My research says WBBM first showed the film in 1973, so the art card probably is from that date.

Mentioning stuff that Fuzzy purposely tried to edit out: That's a Bozo no-no. ;-)

Seriously though, you're right and I will fix the clip to remove that. I don't like stuff that distracts from the main event. How do you think the poor Starbeat commercial feels when the only comment left about it refers to the .002 second flash of something unrelated at the end. Boo-hoo. ;-)

At the end on the clip, I saw a title card of the 1954 movie called "Her Twelve Men" starring Greer Garson. I might be wrong, but that movie's title card comes from The Late Show on channel 2.

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em...

It did seem it was cheaper to buy it in the stores. (The LP topped both the Pop and County charts of Billboard, and was ultimately certified diamond - yes, folks, diamond. It had been originally issued in September 1980, after Rogers' previous label United Artists was folded into a revived Liberty and the UA name was retired for records by parent Capitol-EMI.)

I've never seen an ending slide that subtotals the cost. $8.98 $0.59 Postage $1.35 Cash On Delivery $1.00 Handling = $11.92.

Notice also that Albert "Cubby" Broccoli was the producer (he did all the early James Bond movies) and Gert Frobe (Goldfinger) was in it.
