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!

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. Comment posted by FCabanski on Tuesday, December 30th 2014 at 1:11am.

Checking the Tornado History Project, there was only one tornado listed for this date in Illinois. It was a pretty big one: an F4 which touched down at 7:20 PM near Atlanta, IL and ran northeast over seven miles along I-55; luckily no lives were lost and only two injuries.
As a kid I could often hear my parents watching TV in the other room while I was in bed. I remember hearing the music at 2:25. Was that the "news theme" that Channel 9 news used since this aired on channel 9?
