WSNS Channel 44 - Thing Theatre - "Wrestling Women Vs. The Aztec Mummy" (Bumper Excerpt, 1980)

Here's another super-rare glimpse at the Thing Theatre movie program on WSNS Channel 44 - a partial bumper, during an airing of "Wrestling Women Vs. The Aztec Mummy" - an example of one of the low budget Mexican horror films produced during the late-50s and 60s.

We can see the same logo font style as featured in the opening of the show, with a color scheme more reminiscent of WSNS' The Saturday Night Movie titles..

I wonder what the music was that was used for the bumper? We hear a little of it before it is cut off.

Noted for search attempts: It's Thing Theatre - not Thing Theater.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, August 31st 1980 during the 1pm to 3pm timeframe.

In another sense, a belated recognition of Mr. Lewis' recent death.

Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - Eyewitness News - "Weather & Break" (1973) by W.B. on Saturday, August 12th, 2017 at 12:13pm CT

On YT a user put up a clip from an overnight "World News Now" from 1995 with excerpts from a 1970 edition of WABC Channel 7's (New York) "Eyewitness News." Roger Grimsby (who died before that aircheck) was the main anchor, but this was several months before Bill Beutel joined him at the desk; co-anchoring with him that evening was Bill Aylward (who was filling in for Grimsby's nominal co-anchor of the time, Tom Dunn). Notable is that on the end, is an excerpt of a weather forecast from their resident weatherman of the time, Tex Antoine (who was as iconic in NYC as WLS's John Coleman was in Chicago). And you think this weather forecast is primitive by today's standards . . . ?
