WLS Channel 7 - The 3:00 Movie - "Women in Chains" (Opening, 1981)
Here, at long last, is an opening to the WLS Channel 7 3:00 Movie! This one is for the campy, explotative "Women in Chains" (boy, this was really good wholesome afternoon fun, eh?) This must have been around the time that "Prisoner: Cell Block H" was popular. :-)
Voiceover by Ernie Anderson.
This was originally aired as an ABC Movie of the Week from 1972.
The opening to The 3:00 Movie here is similar to The ABC Sunday Night Movie opening that was used at the same time. The main difference is the theme music, which on here (as well as on The 4:30 Movie on WABC Channel 7 in New York, which also used the same opening title animation as here, except the difference in time) came from the bridge from "Skippin' " by Ramsey Lewis (from his 1977 album Tequila Mockingbird, Columbia JC 35018).
However, when ABC changed the Sunday Night Movie opening to the "Star-Tunnel" version in the Fall of 1981, did they change this one too? Or did it stay like this until it ended in July of 1984?
This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, November 5th 1981.
