35 Years Ago Today

Here's the opening to the Sunday Night Movie presentation of "The Burglars" on WLS Channel 7. We can see it uses the same swirling-star motif as used on the 3:30 Movie and Late Night Movie shows of the period.

Also includes a WLS-TV Station ID at the beginning (voiceover by Wayne Atkinson)

This aired on March 30, 1980.

And except for a small part of the opening cut off, this theme music is heard in virtually all its splendor.

This movie should be out on DVD.

I remember WTTW Channel 11 airing this film in early 1985.

@VintageCananda: I agree, they should release this on DVD and Blu-ray.

Forgot to mention this a few months back, but mid/late June this year, I finally got the movie recorded off Turner Classic Movies. I really loved it.

McNamara gets heckled by some fans just before the video cuts out.

Anytime I hear that tune, I have to sing along...

McDonald's is our kind of place,
They feed you rattlesnakes,
They throw food in your face,
It's such a happy place!

I've dropped my McDonald's cup with one of those lids on it and all the liquid spilled all over the place. I call this False Advertising!!!!

So according to the sign, even back in 1967 there have been billions and billions served at Mcdonalds? The franchise had been around for what, a decade by then? Also, I really kind of dig the waiter's smile. Wish I can get that kind of smile when I go to a McD's today!

The jingle is sung to the tune of "Down by the Riverside".

It sure beats that lousy "I'm lovin' it" jingle we got now.

I was only in second grade but remember this. I probably heard about this in CCD since I was in second grade.
