KWHY Channel 22 - SelecTV - "Promo & Sign-Off" (1982?)

Here's the full segment found on a tape from KWHY Channel 22 in Los Angeles, featuring the end of the movie "The Hills Have Eyes" on SelecTV followed by a promo for the movie "Blow-Up" and a station sign-off.

Not sure when this aired exactly - can anyone date it definitively?

Guess which movie I put in my Netflix queue after watching this. :-P

"Blow Up" is a good movie. I recorded this off of The Movie Channel back in 1989.

I just watched "Blow-Up". It was a great film and terrific period piece. It lends itself to several good double features with films such as "The Conversation" (suspenseful films that deal with how we perceive things), "The Knack...and How to Get It" (Swingin', Mod London!) or Smashing Time" (Two films, two different Redgraves!)

I must admit, those are the most unusual color bars I've ever seen. Of course, I haven't seen any color bars since WPWR took over channel 50 back in 1987.

That was an 11-step 180-degree burst pattern.

Not to be confused with a 12-step program.

Just found out today that Blow-Up will air on TCM late Saturday June 21/early Sunday June 22 at midnight ET (11 pm CT).

(Corrects earlier information after having checked the on-screen and web guides as of today, June 19, 2014.)

Worth seeing just for the rare footage of The Yardbirds when both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page were in the band...the song Stroll On is a rework of Train Kept A Rollin.

Reminder for those who have Turner Classic: Blow-Up airs late Saturday night/early Sunday morning at midnight ET/11 pm CT.

Ok, who here watched Blow-Up for the first time this weekend when Turner aired it? Did you like it? :-)
Comment posted by Smctopia on Monday, June 23rd 2014 at 8:10pm.

I have it recorded and will find some time to watch it.

Just got one Sarah Miles film in the books. It isn't Blow-Up yet, but I still have the DVD. (The film I did complete tonight features brief appearances by James Stewart.)

I got Blow-Up watched last Thursday. Great film. David Hemmings was outstanding, as was Vanessa Redgrave and Sarah Miles, and pretty much the entire cast. A very artful masterpiece.

And for the record, the other Sarah Miles movie I watched earlier this summer was the 1978 version of the Big Sleep with Robert Mitchum and James Stewart.

Oh, I do have The Night of the Hunter from 1955 on DVD starring Mitchum and Lillian Gish, but have yet to watch it.

Still looking to have the sound fixed in this video.

Channel 4 must have switched to using the Moog "Star-Spangled Banner" not long after this. That happens to be my personal favourite rendition of it.

I'm certainly pullin' for the Cubbies to take the Series, for sure. Someone mentioned the Red Sox - one of the Cubs' execs who helped bring the team to their current position, was in charge at the Red Sox when they assembled the players that took home quite a few World Championships over this century.

And New York's Channel 7, WABC, also tended to show badly worn color prints of old movies. One screening of "The Best of Everything" [1959] in the mid-'80's on their "Late Movie" (with Alan Parker's "Unlimited Love" as the theme) was especially yellowish.

As for the bad color on this film, one person on YouTube speculated it may've been due to this being an Eastman print, fading over time.

Can anyone say with certainty what kind of color slide WLS used for their 1974 test pattern (inaugurated the year they began transmitting from their circular polarized antenna atop the Sears [now Willis] Tower), based on the 1984 sign-on and the extreme fading and discoloration seen thereon?

And finally, can anyone envision in their head how the "swirling stars" would have fared with Walter Raim's "Big Show" theme as used for years on WABC's "4:30 Movie" and their other movie shows?

Our channel 7 in Detroit was also known for bad colour quality when they were showing old movies. I have a few movie recordings off of WXYZ from the early 80s, and "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" has particularly bad colour quality.

Comment posted in WTTW Channel 11 - Doctor Who - "The Max Headroom Pirating Incident" (1987) by Smctopia on Thursday, October 13th, 2016 at 8:17pm CT

I don't think this was asked elsewhere but since he first tried to hack in to WGN and the Channel 11 audio makes several WGN references, is it possible "Max" prerecorded this and wasn't broadcasting it live?

The woman in the AARP ad kind of sounds like Shirley Jones.

Would anyone out there know what kind of color system was used on that print of "The Guns of Navarone" for the color to go so bad? I know that the print would've been 16mm . . . and what was it about one of the RCA(?) film chains for the blacks on the circle 7 logo to be dark maroonish and the whites almost beigeish? And people thought that no two color cameras of the same model produced the same pictures?

Thanks for the compliments and info, everyone. Hopefully we can incorporate the info into the description at some point.
