WLS Channel 7 - Saturday Night Movie - "The Evil of Frankenstein" (Promo, 1971)

Here's a promo for an upcoming Saturday Night Movie presentation of the 1964 film "The Evil of Frankenstein" (starring Peter Cushing) on WLS Channel 7, to air on Saturday, at 10:30pm. (When this originally aired, there would have been a voiceover from some of Channel 7's announcing staff, including Al Parker, Fred Kasper, Mike Rapchak, Art Hellyer, and Wayne Atkinson.)

This was preserved on a silent 16mm film, with a brief card showing Metro Film Corporation as the processor (anyone have any info on where this firm was situated?).

Artwork by Cathy Mustari, who worked in WLS's art department from 1970 to 1974; she would go from there to WFLD Channel 32 where she served as art director until the late '80's.

MODIFICATION NOTICE: I always state when something has been modified, so as not to disrupt the purity of your fuzzy experience. ;-) This was originally a silent 16mm film, so I had to add the sound manually. I used an audio track from a trailer for the film I found on YouTube, which I then tweaked up a bit in Soundforge.

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1971. There were two possible airings that this promo could have been for: Saturday, February 27th 1971 (where it was listed as Saturday Movie I) and Saturday, October 30th 1971 (where it was just listed as Movie I).

Peter Cushing rules.

Another WLS staff announcer was Jerry Mitchell, who was also a Columbia College radio instructor in the early-mid 80s. My fellow Columbia alums will recall Jerry's famous announcing-style lesson "You don't sell a house...you sell a home."

Would you know, from any of the WLS clips already on here, which would feature Jerry's voice? I'm all ears (and so, I'm sure, are Fuzzy and the rest of us) . . .

I sense a disturbance in the Force. Grand Moff Tarkin is the disturbance.

I graduated from Columbia but don't remember him. Then again I'm talking the 90s.
