American Airlines - "California" (Commercial, 1965)

Here's a commercial for American Airlines, which starts off with a re-creation of a turn-of-the-century train robbery, then segues from that to the various sights of California including the dolphins of Marineland, San Francisco's Chinatown, night skyline, Mission Hill, cable cars, a pelican at the bay, Big Sur, and the infamous freeways. Ends with a shot of a four-engine Boeing 707 touching down as part of their "Royal Coachman" service.

Thanks for the info once again, Nancy. :-) Keep looking; I hope you can ID the Mandy version some day.

Wow, it's been a while.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.

However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

The same news desk seen here in 1983 was used in 1987 for some test runs of Fox 32 News, as seen here: https://youtu.be/C-leT1buYYs?t=1m27s

I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.
