Yep, that's Christopher Knight in that ad. :) Comment posted by ChitownTVFan on Thursday, January 30th 2014 at 4:46pm.
I saw Christopher Knight get beat up by Danny Bonaduce in a "Dark Match" at the 1994 WCW Spring Stampede at the old Rosemont Horizon. Also he married Adrianne Curry (the first winner of America's Next Top Model) at St. Raymond's Cathedral in Joliet. They're now divorced.

Yeah they both seemed bizarre and I always thought it was a bit of a sham. I know several who know Curry's family though and said they are nice people. Knight and Bonaduce are both annoying to be honest and though I like both as kids they seem to take the child star thing too far. To be fair I do think Knight is more stable than Bonaduce.

@Owenrock...I think that marriage ended because of trust issues. Adrianne was fooling around with a guy named Phil Packer and Christopher tried to keep a date with his wife and Mr. Phillips' Niece Pam at the same time. Comment posted by GalagaFleetCommander on Tuesday, February 4th 2014 at 10:45pm.
Not to mention he had no personality and she didn't like pork chops and applesauce like he did. Comment posted by LaPrincess on Tuesday, February 4th 2014 at 11:05pm.
So sad. Between Christopher Knight doing a KFC commercial and Eve Plumb doing that Burger Chef commercial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AcuiVSmQw4 ), the Brady Bunch cast must've had the worst agents in the history of agents.
After the blockbuster that the Brady Bunch became in syndicated reruns, shouldn't the whole cast have easily been able to move on to successful careers into the late 70s and 80s and beyond? Had their own sitcoms?
It seems like whoever their agents were should be ashamed of themselves for wasting those opportunities for both the actors and themselves. Comment posted by MildApplause on Wednesday, February 5th 2014 at 7:11pm.
I think the Brady Kids kind of became victims of their own success as the show was becoming ridiculously popular in syndication, plus having that horrible variety show and junk like "The Brady Brides" airing several years after the original show ended didn't help them. Florence Henderson though managed to have a great career as a motherly type of figure as Carol Brady was a positive character and did quite a few commercials as someone you could trust. Even today she's still out there as I saw her recently do Rachel vs. Guy's Celebrity cooking competition on Food Newtork.

Eve Plum did star in the critically acclaimed tv movie Dawn portrait of a teen runaway (I saw it on YouTube)but yep it has been rough for most of them. I do know Barry Williams has done some things in Broadway or Vegas and Florence Henderson still does quite a bit. I saw her on Dancing With The Stars and have been watching her on the Rachel vs Guy show Comment posted by LaPrincess on Friday, February 7th 2014 at 12:13am.

http://factually.gizmodo.com/the-first-audiobooks-were-invented-for-blind-americans-1620940467 It seems like two librarians talking about books on tape and books on record albums with adaptive devices such as a record turntable with a pause button and a pitch or speed control on the audio cassette tape player.
I was wondering exactly what telecine equipment was used to make this transfer. Because certainly it appears a bit better than it would have "back then" via WGN's film chain setup which at that point would have included RCA TK-27's.
GHilbrich - Good observations. To answer your question, we did the transfer ourselves, direct from the original film reel. Everything you see, including the dissolve between the ID and the GG opening, was as it appears on the reel.
I agree with your reasoning. Perhaps we'd have a better idea where this came from if we can get any more information out of the original seller on Ebay. For example, I'd like to know how long this reel was in his possession, and where he got it from (was it an estate sale / private collection, or something else?)
I do not believe that this was done for any other reason than someone taking home a souvenir of sorts. I think what you have here is one of (and maybe now the only) original, station used 16mm reels with the WGN Color Presentation and Garfield Goose intro that would have run any given morning before moving into the video feed with Frazier. Perhaps someone who worked at WGN got a hold of the materials here when the station was unloading reels into a dumpster and adding one of the full 5 part Clutch serials for continuity.
This is just a guess, of course. But judging from the flow of the 16mm print, it's probably the best bet (the Clutch episodes are spliced pretty tightly together without any leader, countdowns or "Place Commercial Here" slugs).
Maybe the person responsible for getting this reel out of WGN is or will read this and chime in.
I have to ask, Fuzzy, did you add the dissolve between the Color Presentation and GG titles? Do you have the actual reel or was it transferred and sent to you this way?
From what I have read in various message boards, including THE source for wrestling's past, kayfabememories.com , this sounded like a non-taped/broadcast house show to promote the big card at Comiskey Park in September; Robinson actually DID NOT win the title because Gagne's foot was on the rope when he was pinned. So, the belt was held up until the September card at Comiskey Park.
(Edited to correct date of the Amphitheater card.)
I'm thinking it was the film roll in for the show. I wonder if the original 16mm film had a splice between the Garfield Goose intro and the Clutch Cargo cartoons. If so... it may have been the telecine film run during the show. There is also a dissolve between the WGN Color intro and the show open. Film dissolves needed to be done optically, so I expected the one to end in black and the next to start from black.
