Shows you what happens when they pronounce an assailant's name, as they did here . . . but thanks for the background info of "what happened next." It's things like this that make this as much an historical reference guide as everything else.

I vividly remembered this incident the day it happened. It actually started Thursday afternoon April 3rd and concluded early Saturday morning April 5th with the hostage being released unharmed and the suspect being taken into custody. The suspect, whose name was actually John Pasch, Jr, shot and killed his landlord and then murdered Chicago Police Officer Richard Clark who was the first responder on the scene. The cops actually used bright spotlights on Pasch's house to wear him out on the second night of the drama to get him to finally surrender. Then Police Superintendent Fred Rice also encouraged him to give up and he did. Pasch was convicted of his crimes and was sentenced to death when Illinois still had the death penalty. However, Pasch would die of natural causes while in prison in September 1993.

Hands up if any of you remember (as I do) Buster's ads promoting his line of swimming pools for use in the home.

@VintageCanada - It goes about 6 minutes more or so before the tape ran out. I knew it had to be getting close to the next break, but sadly, it never made it.

How much more of the movie continued to run after the break until it got cut off?

Tragic what happened to Vic Morrow back in 1982. Was an army helicopter really necessary?

Ah, the days when top-flight films were run on local TV stations via lo-res 16mm prints. (And how the focus was on some stations, you'd think they had Super 8 prints.)

Ok, I've been singing the paper towel song all weekend and have had to fight off urges to dance around in my kitchen and unravel the towel roll. This commercial should have its own video by itself.

The woman in the Handi Wipes ad looks familiar. Very entertaining ad! I wonder how many kids pulled paper towels across the kitchen after seeing it?

ChitownTVFan: It is Beethoven's "Fur Elise" but in a "Hooked On Classics" version.
