R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - "The Deal Maker" (Commercial, 1982)

Here's an extended R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile commercial - these were some pretty catchy and entertaining commercials that never really got their full due.

R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - The Deal Maker - at 78th Street and the Dan Ryan in Chicago.

Directed by Howie Samuelsohn. I wonder who the voiceover guy is - he's pretty cool. :-)

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1982.

Funky old school R&B theme in the 1980's!

This place was about 4 blocks east from where my aunt lived. I lived farther south in Roseland, but we used to go pass here to my aunts for BBQing. It's loooong gone now.

That voice over dude is really jammin! I'd love to know if he's still working.

Is Howie Samuelsohn the former hippie with the missing eye that used to be on WSNS-TV?

Was the R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile car dealer a former Kohl's grocery store since it's the same shape as one of those Kohl's grocery stores?

The lady in the commercial has a nice chasis ; ). My dad had a '79 Cutlass Supreme Broham, that car rocked!

You could be right that it was an old Kohl's store. Check out this link of one of the old stores.

I also remember Hames Olds at the corner of Columbus and Western; then in the '80's they moved to Worth on Southwest Hwy......'77 Cutlass' were THE car.....big seller for Olds

My father bought from Marquart(sp?) Olds on Skokie Hwy over by Lakehurst mall. From a quick Google search,it appears to be gone.

Here's some info I found on Tony the Pony. It doesn't appear to be locally produced.

It was Missy Gold in the Burger King ad. Funny because I knew that the second I saw her. She wouldn't be known to a national audience until Benson's debut in 1979.

You are correct. I can't believe I typed the wrong thing and no one caught it earlier!

The F & M in Buffalo Grove was at Dundee and Buffalo Grove Roads, not Dundee and 12.

There was also an F & M in Joliet off Larkin Avenue. Last I checked it was home to Big Lots.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Creature Features - "The Raven" (Opening & Bumper Excerpts, 1978) by AdoreSixtyFour on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:59pm CT

I'm so glad this footage has turned up--I remembered seeing Creature Features in the late '70s and early '80s, but every historical reference I could find on the Interwebs told me that it ended in May 1976, so I assumed my memory was just wrong...until now! I also remember the simple opening with the blue slide. I must have been up late during summer vacation to see it, and I don't know which movie I saw (Kronos, maybe, since I remember seeing that on CF, though it only aired once in the "classic" era...when I was 9), but I remember being shocked (and thrilled!) to see it still on the air. I still have dreams about the show, too--usually that somebody has at least briefly revived it and I've stumbled across it on cable. (You listening Antenna TV? Cozi? This?)


Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - Monster Rally Movie - "Opening Outtakes" (1976) by AdoreSixtyFour on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:47pm CT

Wow...I remembered Monster Rally (I think I watched every local horror-film showcase in the '70s & '80s), but had completely forgotten this super-cool opening!

These puppets were later used on a show called I.N.K. -- Interesting News for Kids. I thought it was on WMAQ, but maybe I'm wrong on that. The mic was named Mike Rafone, (get it?), and the show also featured a character who was a spider that looked like a black glove with a huge black pin cushion sewn onto the top of it. This is the ONLY reference I've seen to the show in years.

Did this ever go anywhere, or was it just an opening, which was also used, (as I remember), as a commercial? I don't remember ever seeing the host doing any bumpers or skits, ala Svengoolie.

That was great! Put this with the Long Chevrolet Newsboy commercial.
