| WFLD Channel 32 - Monstrous Movie - "I Was A Teenage Frankenstein" (Opening, 1981)|
Here is the open for WFLD Channel 32's Monstrous Movie. This is an earlier version (featuring a chilling, maniacal laugh) than the one previously posted from 1982. (I wish I had more, but this is all I have. Also sorry for the bad quality but this is the best anyone has found - yet!) Notice the Kaiser Broadcasting era 32 logo.
Be sure to listen to the extra voiceover while the opening credits of the movie start.
According to knowledgable sources (Mr. Rich Koz) - "the first announcer is Ron Beattie, who left 32 [in 1980]...the laughing in the background is a stupid old novelty item called "Bag O'Laughs" - that, when touched, played the demented laughter (hence the tinny quality) - then, the specific v.o. about the film is Jim Barton. I'm guessing the taped open was still used after Ron left."
Anyway - cool, eh? This footage is rarer than hen's teeth, so if you can find any, please share it! :-)
