Here's the opening moments and first commercial break of The Late Movie presentation of The Marx Brothers' 1933 film "Duck Soup" (their last for Paramount Pictures, and the last in which Zeppo was a part of the team) on WGN Channel 9. Includes:

Animated - "Superman" WGN Station ID

Opening titles for The Late Movie, previewing a Marx Brothers' double feature of "Duck Soup" and "Horse Feathers" (voiceover by Merri Dee) (music used is "Touchdown" by Bob James)

Commercial offer for VacuFresh ("This Is Not Tupperware!") - incredibly strong and airtight (main voiceover by ??) (ending voiceover by ??)

Season's Greetings from The WGN Family - card opens up to reveal a clip from "Holiday Inn," with Bing Crosby, Marjorie Reynolds and assorted others singing "Happy Holidays," and then closes after the song is over - different from the 1979 series of "Season's Greetings" promos

The Late Movie bumper

Last half of 1958 MCA tv fanfare, leading to opening titles of "Duck Soup"

Note: Some TV Guide listings had different movies for this date and time.

This aired on local Chicago TV early Saturday, January 1st 1983.
