The transfer of this video clip made possible by your generous donations!
Here's a technical difficulties moment from within the opening moments of The Jack Benny Program on WFLD Channel 32. This starts with a bumper for Bristol-Myers Company (typesetting in Kabel Medium) - "The Makers of Bufferin" (voiceover by Bud Kelly) which lasts on-screen for the first 23 seconds.
Next is the opening of the show (with voiceover by Jack's longtime announcer Don Wilson), but only audio is heard as the video consists of the WFLD TV station ID slide seen during the middle of movies, TV shows, etc. This lasts for a few more seconds before the film is stopped, after which the WFLD TV The Jack Benny Show bumper (with Avant Garde Book as the font) is shown for 48 seconds before the show finally returns in the middle of Jack's monologue.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Tuesday, February 11th 1975.
