Here's a promo for the 10-6-80 airing of The Star-Spangled Movie presentation of the 1966 film "Adventures of Captain Fabian" on WSNS TV-44. Previous to this we saw a few other glimpses of this bumper movie show - maybe it always aired at 3:30pm on weekdays? Could this help definitively date those other clips?
