Here's an on-screen station ID from the Miles Showcase Theatre presentation of the 1941 Humphrey Bogart movie "The Maltese Falcon" on WGN Channel 9. The ID is typeset on a very primitive character generator system whose service dated back to the late 1960's, and was used by other stations and networks on such news events as the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. This early CG typesetting preceded such systems as Vidifont and Chyron.

Look at the end of this clip for John Hamilton, years before landing the role of Daily Planet publisher Perry White in the 1952-58 TV series Adventures of Superman. In this film he played the role of "Bryan."

NOTE: This broadcast was in color, but captured on an early home videotape recording in black and white. (of course, the movie itself was in black and white - just the Miles Showcase segments and commercials would have been in color) There are also some tape-tracking problems that are noticeable at certain points on this clip.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, June 21st 1973 during the 7pm to 9pm timeframe.
