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!

ChitownTVFan - Yes, but that "broadcast" you saw was a re-creation. They created it from scratch and put in period-appropriate commercials. No one knows for sure what actual commercials aired during the real 10-9-71 Creature Features Wolfman airing though.
Seeing that shot of the studios at 0:47 made me wonder if the station is there today. Turns out they moved to neighboring Johnson City in 1992.
50 Front St. in Binghamton was the Sheraton Inn, built in 1959. WNBF-TV/WBNG occupied a portion of the ground floor of the hotel. Dick Clark broadcast his Saturday night variety show from the back lot of the hotel on May 30, 1959 before about 1,000 teenage fans. This was the first time a network telecast originated in Binghamton... and it wouldn't surprise me if it was the last! The station has a gallery of historical photographs on its website.

The setting for "Two Guys from Muck" is a sleazy weekly scandal sheet. Currently in production, the one-hour NBC comedy stars Adam Arkin ("Busting Loose") and Rick Casorla. They will play a photographer- reporter team.
Graham Jarvis, who plays John Ehrlichman in "Blind Ambition" this week and who originally gained fame as Charlie Haggers on "Mary Hartman,
Mary Hartman," also stars as Davis, the crusty editor of Muck. (Why are TV's editors always crusty? Ours aren't.)
Rounding out the cast is Gwen Humble as Cybil Sanders, a rival reporter for the posh Beautiful People magazine.
The story follows Buzz (an aspiring journalist who hopes to one day win a Pulitzer Prize) and photographer Louie (grateful to editor Davis for his job)
as they are assigned an interview with a slightly offbeat museum guard with a bullet in his brain. They eventually become involved in a robbery of Cleopatra's jewels masterminded by a mysterious Mr.Big.
