WSNS Channel 44 - Monster Rally Movie - "Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural" (Partial Bumper #1, 1980)

Views: 1743


Here's one of the few glimpses yet found of a show that a lot of people remember and have requested footage of - Monster Rally Movie! This aired on WSNS Channel 44 and reportedly had it's own host - a mysterious figure in a creepy costume. Here we get to see only a partial commercial bumper from the show - the only type of footage (other than the movie itself) known to exist currently. The movie this night was the very weird 1973 film Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural.

In this clip we see about 25 seconds of the movie, and then a wipe-effect as the Monster Rally Movie slide appears. (Note - the jangely, country music you hear begin after this is from the movie. A snippet of the Monster Rally theme music fades in after that - a spooky, eerie, type of music)

The Monster Rally Movie slide gets cut off as they omitted the commercial - then it comes right back to the movie - however, you can see a quick flash in the upper left-hand corner of a part of the movie title "Lemora" which must have been displayed on the return bumper. And then the country music from the movie continues...and we watch another 30 seconds or so of this crazy movie. ;-)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, July 4th 1980.
