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.

VintageCanada - are you able to play other recent clips like the Donahue one? I am making them all Mp4 clips now, in a higher resolution too, but the player seems to be handling it. Still don't have tablet or smartphone play ability but we're working on that too.

The player is not loading properly on this one.

Maybe this guy is him? Looks like his film production work started in 1976 and maybe this commercial demo got him the job!

At the end of the Shell spot, that looks like the Screen Gems residential street. And of course that's Paul Frees as the Pillsbury Doughboy.

The two repeats of this film on ABC aired under the title "Love Trap."

Upgraded the video file on this one. I agree - not Kevin Kline. Look at his face 11 seconds to 14 seconds in.
