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. Comment posted by SuperCFL on Thursday, December 13th 2007 at 5:52pm.
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!

This clip has been viewed 1993 times. This clip debuted on FuzzyMemories.TV on Thursday, December 13th 2007.
That's not Willie Best in the clip though...it's Ernie Morrison as Scruno in one of the East Side Kids comedies. Also noticed a brief clip from one of the Little Rascals shorts, Our Gang Follies of 1936
Breaking in late here: in the early days of WFLD broadcasting White Sox games, all road game broadcasts were taken from the home team's feed. The exception was Milwaukee, where the Sox played some home games in 1968-69; that was a WFLD crew. There's a discussion about that in the forums, although I don't know where it is.
This was the period where they switched the home and road unis, with the home team wearing the white jerseys and the road team wearing the colored ones. Based on the games that I've seen recently, it's switched back.
