I remember seeing this promo...if not in 1981, then before. Since Family Classics mostly kept airing the same collection of Fred Silverman-selected movies, I don't think the promos changed much, if at all.

Classic promo Fuzzy. I remember this one too. WGN would also run this film again on Christmas Eve (while WTTW and other stations would run the Alistair Sim version). We always watched this version. FYI, towards the end of the film you can catch a glimpse of a stagehand's reflection in a mirror. I hope more of this Family Classics material surfaces!

I don't know for sure if it doesn't happen in this version, but I just watched the Alastair Sim version. A stage hand is visible in the mirror in that version.

I may be wrong, but that mic might look like the Electro-Voice EV-667 . . .

I know some people was mad as heck that night, lol!! The way the words at the bottom of the screen was soooo slow that I can't imagine how the people felt waiting for the numbers to see if they won, lol!!!

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.
