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 Comment posted by Smctopia on Monday, October 4th 2010 at 8:30pm.
"Blow Up" is a good movie. I recorded this off of The Movie Channel back in 1989. Comment posted by Betamax75 on Monday, October 4th 2010 at 10:15pm.
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. Comment posted by OldTVNut on Friday, August 10th 2012 at 1:49pm.
That was an 11-step 180-degree burst pattern. Comment posted by W.B. on Saturday, August 11th 2012 at 9:38am.
Not to be confused with a 12-step program. Comment posted by T.K. on Saturday, August 11th 2012 at 2:29pm.
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).

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. Comment posted by Jack Demus on Friday, May 2nd 2014 at 4:05am.
Reminder for those who have Turner Classic: Blow-Up airs late Saturday night/early Sunday morning at midnight ET/11 pm CT. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Friday, June 20th 2014 at 6:17pm.
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. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Wednesday, June 25th 2014 at 2:10pm.
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.) Comment posted by VintageCanada on Sunday, August 24th 2014 at 9:25pm.
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. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Wednesday, September 10th 2014 at 5:51pm.

Seems the guy in this pic HAS to stand by. He's got no choice!
And with the semi-distorted reception from WTAF, it looks as if two tar-ish looking alien creatures sneaked into master control and and began to confront the tape operator (like a typical Doctor Who episode.)
Allen's journey from a drug dealing convict to the voice of the beloved Buzz Lightyear is interesting. He once said "The judge told me to get my act together and I took him seriously". He started out like Chris said a struggling comic doing mostly the same kind of observational humor but once played a show where a bunch of guys were grunting and eating and pretty much being Cro-Magnons and that's where the inspiration for his "guy" humor came from. Women even liked the macho tools, explosions and grunting he did I think largely because he never really insulted women like "The Man Show" did or other comedy of that nature.
I used to live in a house in the Clinton section of Manhattan (NYC) that was positioned such that, at night and in the morning, we could get WTAF Channel 29 and WPHL Channel 17 from Philadelphia (and very rarely, the late WKBS Channel 48). Once when WNET Channel 13 was off the air, there was a faint signal from WJZ Channel 13 in Baltimore.
But the '29' logo (as here, set in Windsor Bold Outline Shaded) was from before 1979, though they kept the TD slide with it for some time after it changed, given that this particular clip is dated 1980. (Could that be an RCA TR-70 class VTR in that pic?)
Oh, and one other thing: WTAF, thanks to a whole bunch of corporate mergers, acquisitions, etc., is now WTXF - a sister station to the Windy City's WFLD Channel 32 and fellow Fox affiliate.
For the opening push in shot of Family Classics before the book close up, do you think that is a pre-tape they used week after week? The lighting is very low key in that shot, and high key in Frazier's close up.
