Item Description
Fans of the 1970s, this is one of my favorite items
I offer (get it?): September 7, 1977's airing of  "The Magic
of ABC," hosted by David Copperfield, with Original Airing With
"The Magic of ABC" was a preview-type of program,
showing what was returning to the then-dominating network, and what
was new for the fall season!
Copperfield hosts!
Stars that stop by include Hal Linden (who makes a
"spectacular" entrance), Dick Van Patten, Adam Rich, Penny
Marshall, Cindy Williams, Abe Vigoda, Donny and Marie Osmond (Donny
performs!), Shaun Cassidy, Parker Stevenson, Fred "Rerun" Berry
from What's Happening!, Kate Jackson, Kristy McNichol, and Howard
Previews of shows include rare clips from
Carter Country, Petticoat Junction,
and even
San Pedro Beach Bums!
Copperfield performs!
He does various magic, ranging from good to
not-so-good, and a singing and dance act, featuring '70s chicks ad
playing cards! There are some other entertainment clips, too -
including some of the stars! Includes Original Commercials! What's
equally amazing about this program is that the original commercials
are included! There are all kinds of Pillsbury commercials - cake,
cookies, and croissants! - and most include the Pillsbury Dougboy!
Quality - the overall quality is an 8.5, maybe slightly higher -
this is off the airwaves in 1977! There are some second-long parts
where the screen shakes, etc. Definitely watchable! It's actually
like watching it back then.
Total running time is 55 minutes and 15 seconds -
it cuts on on a Pillsbury commercial.
What you get: a DVD-R or +R in a paper envelope.
NTSC format.
For fans of ABC-TV in the '70s, the '70s itself, '70s
commercials, or the '70s stars it features, or even the rare shows
it showcases, this is a good one to have!
