I wish I can be sorry that Robert McNamara passed recently, but he was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of young men and thousands more innocent civilians in Vietnam.

If you want to know what I am talking about, rent the documentary "Fog of War".
Incredible how he talks in circles and puts on a phony crying act when he talks about the self immolation of Norman Morrison (a Quaker activist) outside his office at the Pentagon.

That is all I have to say about that!

I remember watching 'Fog of War' a few years ago, armitagenlowell, so I know what you are talking about. I remembered McNamara saying that he thought the Vietman War was an extension of the Cold War, when in fact it was a civil war.

Wow, it's been a while.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.

However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

The same news desk seen here in 1983 was used in 1987 for some test runs of Fox 32 News, as seen here: https://youtu.be/C-leT1buYYs?t=1m27s

I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.

I think nobody's bothered to ask this yet: how many tapes were used to record this movie? It is possible some bits of the overall recording would've been cut in order to change tapes.
