35 Years Ago Today

Here's a promo for the Seven's Shooting Stars game on the 3:00 Movie.

Produced by Karen Yellen Dillon. Music by Robert Richter and Friends productions.

The contest ran from June 27th through August 5th.

The TV in the freeze frame and :08 in the video is a Sony CVM-1225. I've had one until 2017, and it still worked. Sony discontinued them in 1970s. In "Videotape: Images With Impact" You can see that exact same TV in 1976 at the start of the tape. http://www.labguysworld.com/AV-8600_017.jpg

This aired on July 20, 1983.

FM, I still have the one TV guide issue that has the Shooting Stars game entry.

Channel 7 ran an ad for this game in TV Guide for five weeks that summer. It was one of the few times that WLS used the marquee logo in ads for the 3:00 Movie.

I remember this! Earth 2 was one of the movies, but I don't remember who was in the puzzle.

@ Phantom: They did and also, the 3 O'Clock Movie was in the middle of its 15th year on channel 7 when the contest started.

If you count the early years as "The Big Show," this series had been on in one way or another since 1963 (therefore it would've been technically 20 years old); and had played at 3:30 P.M. since at least 1967 (from what I saw of a vintage schedule from Aug. 11 of that year on the MCCTV board, labeled "WBKB Flashback: 8/11/67"), though it wasn't until 1968-69 that "The 3:30 Movie" title first took effect. (WLS and New York's WABC were among the last title holdouts in this regard, with the latter's movie show not becoming "The 4:30 Movie" until January 1969.)

The TV in the freeze frame and :08 in the video is a Sony CVM-1225. I've still got one in my TV control room at work.

It is. Sony discontinued them in 1970s, but this one still works. In the 3/4" U-Matic TV collection, there is a video I loaned you called "Videotape: Images With Impact" You can see that exact same TV in 1976 at the start of the tape. http://www.labguysworld.com/AV-8600_017.jpg

I know some people was mad as heck that night, lol!! The way the words at the bottom of the screen was soooo slow that I can't imagine how the people felt waiting for the numbers to see if they won, lol!!!

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!


Comment posted in Arby's - "America's Roast Beef Yes Sir!" (Commercial, 1981) by OldTime on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 at 5:33am CT

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!
