Pretty soon after this airing Orlando signed with the Nets, and the Bulls got the 6th pick in the 1989 draft as compensation, that pick was used on Stacy King who was traded to the Timberwolves in 1994 for Luc Longly who was traded for the Sun's 16th pick in the 1999 Draft where Ron Artest was selected, Ron Artest was traded in 2002 for Jalen Rose, Jalen Rose was traded in 2003 for Antonio Davis, Davis was traded with Eddy Curry to the Knicks for their picks in 2006 (#2) and 2007 (#9). In 2006 we drafted LaMarcus Aldridge traded him for Tyrus Thomas and Viktor Khryappa, then in 2007 we used their pick to net us Joakim Noah linking them all the way back to the 1981 Draft when the Bulls drafted Orlando. Take that KEVIN BACON!

Funny they had Orlando wearing that Bulls jersey considering that Chicago had switched to the current design the previous season. Perhaps this was a rerun of a commercial earlier in Woolridge's career.

http://factually.gizmodo.com/the-first-audiobooks-were-invented-for-blind-americans-1620940467 It seems like two librarians talking about books on tape and books on record albums with adaptive devices such as a record turntable with a pause button and a pitch or speed control on the audio cassette tape player.

Correction: Al was able to confirm that this was a filmed insert for Bob Luce Wrestling, not Al Lerner Sports as was previously listed.

Also, I updated the video title to make it more clear that this is a report, and not actual footage of the match. :-)

I was wondering exactly what telecine equipment was used to make this transfer. Because certainly it appears a bit better than it would have "back then" via WGN's film chain setup which at that point would have included RCA TK-27's.

GHilbrich - Good observations. To answer your question, we did the transfer ourselves, direct from the original film reel. Everything you see, including the dissolve between the ID and the GG opening, was as it appears on the reel.

I agree with your reasoning. Perhaps we'd have a better idea where this came from if we can get any more information out of the original seller on Ebay. For example, I'd like to know how long this reel was in his possession, and where he got it from (was it an estate sale / private collection, or something else?)

I do not believe that this was done for any other reason than someone taking home a souvenir of sorts. I think what you have here is one of (and maybe now the only) original, station used 16mm reels with the WGN Color Presentation and Garfield Goose intro that would have run any given morning before moving into the video feed with Frazier. Perhaps someone who worked at WGN got a hold of the materials here when the station was unloading reels into a dumpster and adding one of the full 5 part Clutch serials for continuity.

This is just a guess, of course. But judging from the flow of the 16mm print, it's probably the best bet (the Clutch episodes are spliced pretty tightly together without any leader, countdowns or "Place Commercial Here" slugs).

Maybe the person responsible for getting this reel out of WGN is or will read this and chime in.

I have to ask, Fuzzy, did you add the dissolve between the Color Presentation and GG titles? Do you have the actual reel or was it transferred and sent to you this way?

From what I have read in various message boards, including THE source for wrestling's past, kayfabememories.com , this sounded like a non-taped/broadcast house show to promote the big card at Comiskey Park in September; Robinson actually DID NOT win the title because Gagne's foot was on the rope when he was pinned. So, the belt was held up until the September card at Comiskey Park.

(Edited to correct date of the Amphitheater card.)

*SPOILER*
Gagne defeated Robinson via count-out.

Or, could this have been from Bob Luce Wrestling?

I'm thinking it was the film roll in for the show. I wonder if the original 16mm film had a splice between the Garfield Goose intro and the Clutch Cargo cartoons. If so... it may have been the telecine film run during the show. There is also a dissolve between the WGN Color intro and the show open. Film dissolves needed to be done optically, so I expected the one to end in black and the next to start from black.

I'm guessing it was the raw/pre-edited tape and the space in between the intro and Clutch Cargo is where the live host segments would go. Either way, this footage is in excellent shape for something 45 years old (there's professional grade tapes out there that are younger with much lesser A/V quality...even the ones that are "digitally remastered"). Someone did an excellent job of storing this tape. Wonder what it was stored in? How was it kept form degrading under Earth's magnetic field? Anyway, another epic find!
