If Stan has to balance his checkbook, the charge is $40 an hour! Comment posted by smctopia on Sunday, June 15th 2008 at 8:17pm.
here's how the rest of that "Hello Stan?" conversation went....
"I thought I'd get up nice and early, take a walk down to the bank...and if you don't have my money I'll bash your (FCC banned word) head in"..this is of course in reference to Joe Pesci's character Nicky Santoro in the movie "Casino" Comment posted by GalagaFleetCommander on Tuesday, May 4th 2010 at 10:41am.
Very amusing how basically most people now a days would laugh at needing a "personal banker" to do most of these things. Most telling is... a scene where a person is on a public pay phone, calling a personal banker to simply move money from savings to checking, lol.

I'm certainly pullin' for the Cubbies to take the Series, for sure. Someone mentioned the Red Sox - one of the Cubs' execs who helped bring the team to their current position, was in charge at the Red Sox when they assembled the players that took home quite a few World Championships over this century.
And New York's Channel 7, WABC, also tended to show badly worn color prints of old movies. One screening of "The Best of Everything"  in the mid-'80's on their "Late Movie" (with Alan Parker's "Unlimited Love" as the theme) was especially yellowish.
As for the bad color on this film, one person on YouTube speculated it may've been due to this being an Eastman print, fading over time.
Can anyone say with certainty what kind of color slide WLS used for their 1974 test pattern (inaugurated the year they began transmitting from their circular polarized antenna atop the Sears [now Willis] Tower), based on the 1984 sign-on and the extreme fading and discoloration seen thereon?
And finally, can anyone envision in their head how the "swirling stars" would have fared with Walter Raim's "Big Show" theme as used for years on WABC's "4:30 Movie" and their other movie shows?
Our channel 7 in Detroit was also known for bad colour quality when they were showing old movies. I have a few movie recordings off of WXYZ from the early 80s, and "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" has particularly bad colour quality.
I don't think this was asked elsewhere but since he first tried to hack in to WGN and the Channel 11 audio makes several WGN references, is it possible "Max" prerecorded this and wasn't broadcasting it live?
Would anyone out there know what kind of color system was used on that print of "The Guns of Navarone" for the color to go so bad? I know that the print would've been 16mm . . . and what was it about one of the RCA(?) film chains for the blacks on the circle 7 logo to be dark maroonish and the whites almost beigeish? And people thought that no two color cameras of the same model produced the same pictures?
A little more info on this fascinating piece:
The motorcade is proceeding north on Dearborn in Downtown Chicago and it stops on Michigan Avenue in front of the Conrad Hilton Hotel where the CPD scuffle with a Secret Service Agent. You can see the Prudential Building (then the tallest building in the city) in the background. The protesters are demonstrating across the street from the hotel. That evening the President, Mayor Daley and the entourage leave the Conrad Hilton for the banquet at the Original McCormick Place which was totally destroyed by a fire in 1967. This footage is really something. Great find Fuzzy!
