WSNS Channel 44 - Monster Rally Movie - "Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural" (Partial Bumper #3 + Partial All Night Movies Promo, 1980)
Here's one of the few glimpses yet found of a show that a lot of people remember and have requested footage of - Monster Rally Movie! This aired on WSNS Channel 44 and reportedly had it's own host - a mysterious figure in a creepy costume. Here we get to see another partial commercial bumper from the show - the only type of footage (other than the movie itself) known to exist currently. We also get to see (most of) another one of those great, spooky TV-44 All Night Movies promos. (The person recording obviously mistook this as part of the movie, and thus got tricked into recording it!) The movie this night was the very weird 1973 film Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural.
In this clip we see some of the movie, and then the same wipe-effect as before as the Monster Rally Movie slide appears. A snippet of the Monster Rally theme music fades in after that - a spooky, eerie, type of music.
The Monster Rally Movie slide gets cut off and immediately switches to an All Night Movies promo already in progress. I wonder if our TV-44 contact can identify who is acting in this one. If you know, chime in. :-) You can hear Don Ferris at the end of the promo identifying All Night Movies.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, July 4th 1980.
