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.

Fuzzy: I wish you found another Kenny Rogers mail order record album TV commercial from the same early 1980's time for the 2 record set "Gold Dust and Gold Mine" featuring songs from the Kenny Rogers First Edition era.
The other big question: Which station produced this ad? If WBBM, then its cuts from one slide to another differed significantly from the clunky "fade-out--fade-in" transitions for which New York sister WCBS Channel 2 was famous for decades, from the '50's well to the '80's. But then, practically every Chicago station, I.I.N.M., had RCA TK-27 film chains through which we all saw these slides (and films), and a few by this time may've even gotten the newer TK-28's.
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.
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. ;-)
