WTTW Channel 11 - Movie Eleven - "Swept Away" (Opening, 1980)
Here is the opening for the WTTW Channel 11 - "Movie Eleven" presentation of "Swept Away". This opening features scenes from classic movies (in order): The Blue Angel, Metropolis, The Rocking Horse Winner, Alexander Nevsky, Ugetsu, The Red Shoes, Metropolis, La Strada, [?], Metropolis, Jules et Jim, Beauty and the Beast, Caesar and Cleopatra, and Black Orpheus.
Music used is a classical piece by Wendy Carlos - I think it's the same theme that the Frugal Gourmet used. Anyone know the name of the piece and the composer? Something from Switched On Bach perhaps?
Includes a partial WTTW Station ID slide at the beginning.
Voiceover by Don Ferris.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, May 9th 1980 @ 10:30pm.
