#13102A: MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE, THE
1956-11-27, WOR, 01 min.
Announcer, Frank McCarthy, Ted Mallie

September 21, 1954-April 20, 1968

WOR TV Channel 9 in New York premiered the concept of the "MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE" with the Debut of MAGIC TOWN (1947), on September 21, 1954 to fill time slots when the telecasting of the Brooklyn Dodger baseball season ended.

THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE was a new concept in television viewing...a highlight attraction seen each day locally in New York City on WOR-TV Channel 9. Each week starting on Monday, a TV Debut movie would be shown, Monday thru Friday, twice each evening, 7:30pm & 10:00pm (TEN weekday SHOWINGS). The same film would then be broadcast multiple times on Saturday, 3:00pm, 5:00pm, 7:30pm, and 10:30pm and continuous showings on Sunday, at 12:00pm, 5:00pm, 7:30pm, and 10:00pm. 

That totaled  EIGHTEEN TELECASTS OF THE SAME FILM, BROADCAST EACH WEEK.

 The final across the board multiple showings of a single film for this series was DANGEROUS GROUND (1952), final telecast Friday, August 20, 1965. From that time on the moniker of THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE continued to be used but for the next three years films were sporadically shown more than once in different time slots, or were shown only one time, mainly on weekends. 

The title THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE was dropped completely  after the showing of the documentary, KON-TIKI (1951) which aired on WOR TV Saturday April 20, 1968.  Thereafter when WOR TV aired movies they were introduced with a generic opening. 

During the almost 14 year rein of THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE the opening musical number "Tara's Theme" by Max Steiner would be played as the opening introduction to the movie followed by a voice over announcing the name of the movie and actors.

In booth announcer for THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE form its premiere in 1954 thru 1959 was Frank McCarthy. Subsequently, following the end of WOR's affiliation with Mutual in 1959, Ted Mallie became the announcer. 

For the week of Monday thru Sunday, November 26-December 2, The NY TV Debut of the film EXPERIMENT PERILOUS (1944), starring Hedy Lamarr, was broadcast on THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE a total of EIGHTEEN TIMES. 

The entire opening of THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE broadcast November 27, 1956 is heard. It is the oldest air check known to exist related to the opening of THE MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE. 
                                                                                                                                                        
#13113: LATE SHOW, THE
1956-12-02, WCBS, 1 min.
Announcer

February 26, 1951-April 26, 1968

"The Late Show" which for years would be New York's top feature film show, premiered on WCBS TV New York on Feb. 26, 1951 "The Late Late Show" followed not long after, as did "The Early Show." As its run accumulated, WCBS would commemorate its  anniversary the week of Feb. 26 in different ways. On Feb. 26, 1963, for example, Ch. 2 celebrated "The Late Show's 4,327th broadcast...12th anniversary by inaugurating an extended broadcast day that ended after 5 A.M., unprecedented for its time.

The standard opening of "The Late Show" had the announcer state the title of the film, its cast and some additional relevant anecdotal piece of information related to the film. The musical opening was "The Syncopated Clock," written by Leroy Anderson and recorded by Percy Faith in 1951 (released by Columbia Records). The catchy melody was noticed by the producers of the new WCBS-TV program "The Late Show," that was to be the station's first venture into late night television. Faith's rendition was chosen as the theme music for The Late Show by WCBS and several other CBS owned-and-operated stations around the country, which helped Anderson's composition become a tune that many Americans could readily hum or whistle, even if few knew the name of its composer. WCBS would also use the Faith recording to introduce a weekday afternoon movie (The Early Show) and a later-night movie offering, The Late Late Show.

In 2006 a shortened version of The Syncopated Clock theme music would become the standard opening of the Archival Television Audio, Inc. archived collection...musical intro preceding a specific mastered TV Audio Air Check, which had been processed and mastered from the original off the air recording.  


The last time the moniker "The Late Show" was broadcast on WCBS television, in New York, was April 26, 1968 (WOLF LARSEN (1958). The series lasted 17 years and two months, totaling 6,189 Movie broadcasts. Films still ran in the 11:30pm time slot afterwards, but without the "Late Show" opening. During the years to follow, thru the 1970's, other facsimile Late Show openings were created, a secondary version of the original series.

#13512: SPECIAL REPORT AIR DISASTER FROM 1010 WINS RADIO
1960-12-16, WINS, 25 min.
Robert Wagner, News announcer, Edward Cavanagh Jr.

Running reports of a collision between two airliners (TWA and United) over Staten Island. News of plane disaster that killed 136 people. On-the-spot accounts given by eyewitnesses.    

Fires commissioner Edward Cavanagh Jr. states that today's air disaster is the greatest tragedy in American Aviation History. Comments from New York City Mayor Robert Wagner.

On Thursday, December 12, 1960 at 10:33am a plane collided with another plane a mile high in the New York sky. It was the first commercial air disaster o the jet age, killing all 128 passengers and six more people on the ground. 

The TWA constellation out of Dayton, Ohio, and bound for La Guardia Airport, broke apart in midair and plummeted int an open field in Staten Island. A United Airlines DC-8 jet out of Chicago, bound for Idlewild Airport, now Kennedy Airport, caught fire and hurtled into Brooklyn at an initial rate of 733 feet per second. The plane sliced through a church, an funeral home and 10 brownstones before sliding to a stop on Seventh Avenue and Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn.

Investigators ultimately determined United 826 had gone too late into its holding pattern and neither its crew or air traffic control knew exactly where it was.
