WGN Channel 9 - Family Classics - "Captain Blood" (Opening, 1983)

Here's the opening of the Family Classics presentation of Captain Blood (1935) on WGN Channel 9. Hosted by Frazier Thomas.

(opening starts a tiny bit late)

The theme music sounds warbly - I wonder if that was a technical problem at WGN or something with this tape recording. I do not hear the warble after the music ends - can anyone tell?

The Family Classics theme song was called "Moviescope" and was a piece of library music composed by Dennis Berry. It was originally released on the Berry/Conroy label.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, December 11th 1983 at 3:30pm.

In those 11 seconds of black, if you pause at 1:03, you'll see a upside down "3" for the academic leader countdown.

Probably has something to do with the tape recording.

I see Emmanuel Lewis (Webster) in the last take.

That video was from yesterday. They got the title and video mixed up. In 1959 Ron was a child then, probably not an actor yet.

The voiceover sounds like George Fenneman.

He will be missed.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - Off the Wall (Opening & Break, 1977) by FieldGal44 on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 7:04pm CT

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.
