That's Linn Burton for Certain on the Aronson commercial.

In the 1950's The Cisco Kid was sponsored by local bread companies (Weber's Bread on the West Coast, Butternut Bread in the Midwest including Chicago, etc.)

I smile every time I see the WGN ID and hear "The Last Farwell"

- The fuzzy picture makes it more authentic. My brothers and I would watch these shows after Mass on Sunday while my folks were cooking brunch.

- The guy doing the Eagle commercial sounds like the guy that did the Jewel commercials.

- I used to live near the Aronson's on 46th and Ashland. Never went shopping there...

I'm surpised Cisco Kid was filmed in color back in 1956.

Apparently, no-one knew "The Cisco Kid" was filmed in color after the mid-1950's until 1966 or so when local TV stations reacquired film prints of the show, with the color episodes being offered in color for the first time. This was most certainly the case with the second half of the run of the George Reeves "Adventures of Superman" which was in color, and wasn't seen as such until after 1966.

I believe The Cisco Kid was the first television show to be filmed in color. That show was definitely ahead of its time.

I remember watching the movie 'The Bermuda Triangle' at the Marquette Theater on 63rd Street near Kedzie Avenue. I thought it was an interesting film.

Bonded meats?

Sorry to make you go through any trouble. That news clip actually precedes the Nite-Owl clip on the tape. I just tried to edit it out when posting this clip. One frame must have slipped through. :-)

That's WLS-TV. (from left) Jay Levine, Diane Allen, Jay Berry.

Anyone know what station this was? I had to do something very clever to make that frame useable.

I actually picked up two tapes at a flea market last weekend. One of the tapes had a CBC Newfoundland sign-off from 1993 that ran after the 1937 British film Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and on the other, the Season 11 premiere of Dallas from 9/25/1987. Both tapes contained some soap operas, one of which whose intro can be found here.

I'll be posting some more of the stuff from those two tapes over the next few days.

Do you think the syndicated "The Palace" was a short lived revival attempt of the original 1960's ABC variety show "The Hollywood Palace"?

OOOPS! It seems that somebody got Jane Jetson's & Judy Jetson's hair colors mixed up LOL.

GalagaFleetCommander - Johnny Unitas used to wear his hair in a crewcut until about 1970, when he decided to let it grow out to where he could part it. A real square...

Johnny Unitas did WHAT? I can't believe that! He's got that perfect haircut you can set a watch to like Abe Simpsons said! I wonder if he made anyone any significant amount of money.

About 2 years ago, my brother and I was on our way to the park and I saw boxes and boxes of videos, and my brother and I agreed to get almost all of them. Unfortunately, due to my strength, I didn't carry a lot, so I grabbed like 2 boxes and some videos are quite interesting I tell you. I'am still waiting to deliver these to you because if I wait, not only they'll rot but worried that these will be in the dumpster like my mom did but retrieved by me thank god.
