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.

Can't beat the million-dollar sound of a jingle performed by the Ron Hicklin Singers. Even after 40 years, "At McDonaaaald's..." still sticks to the brain. It's been so long since a memorable uptempo jingle has been used in a national ad campaign, using one would stand out against all the maudlin and futuristic aural wallpaper used today.
If I'm not mistaken, that's a billboard for Ronrico rum visible through the window at 0:35. Even though no one at home was going to be putting this spot on "pause" in 1975, it surprises me they let that slip into something so tightly produced.
T.K. - You're correct - I hadn't noticed that, but this is the last regular appearance of Frazier Thomas on Family Classics that has yet been found. I don't have the opening for "The Black Swan" but I do have the last half hour or so including the complete ending, some of which you see here. I'll have to give this a proper posting at a later time.
Less than two months before the death of Frazier Thomas... am I right in that this is the latest of his regular appearances to have surfaced so far? (I'm not counting the clips used in the retrospective stories in April.)
The intro music to the car show sounds like it came from this catchy number used on the CHEK-TV Friday Night Movie in 1981. WGN's recording sounds like it came from someone holding a mic up to a record player in their basement, however. I'd love to hear it in full.
