When hearing his trademark into, I always think, "Hold it, Frazier, I'm not quite ready yet!"

The way the logo does a sort of flip-wipe onto the screen is tacky, IMO. Someone obviously wanted to show off their new digital effects.

Was there a Broadway musical in the mid 1970's called Shenandoah which was based on this film and novel?

It still has only buffered about 1:14 and the audio is not synced to the picture.

I checked my updates and once I did that, it was buffering really slowly. So far only the first 3 seconds have played.

No problems for me when I saw the clip.

Strange - do you get any sort of error message? This clip *is* in a different file format - as opposed to our old .FLV (Flash Video) files, this one is in .MP4 format. However, it plays as normal through the site for me - anyone else having problems?

I'm not able to play this using either IE or Firefox.

I am sure that "Come Back here" is out there somewhere!

The movie Bob Carrington was referring to was the 1968 movie "Villa Rides" starring Yul Brynner, Robert Mitchum, Maria Grazia Buccella & Herbert Lom.

Twilight Time has released it on Blu-ray. I will order my copy before it becomes out-of-print.

Did anyone notice the Monday Night Football theme heard at the start and end of this promo?
