#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.

Walter Cronkite, Garry Moore, Jim McKay, Ginger Rogers, Elizabeth Taylor, Hubert Humphrey, Arthur Fiedler, Charles Boyer, Boston Pops Orchestra, George Jesel, Elsa Maxwell, Mike Todd, Hedda Hooper, Sir Cedrick Hardwicke

Film producer Mike Todd and his wife, Elizabeth Taylor, on the first anniversary of Todd's film, "Around The World In Eighty Days," invited 18,000 of their close friends to a Madison Square Garden extravaganza.

 Personalities on hand include George Jesel, (Todd's Wife) Elizabeth Taylor, Elsa Maxwell, Walter Cronkite, Senator Hubert Humphrey, Hedda Hooper, Charles Boyer, Ginger Rogers, Joe E. Lewis, Bill Leon. and Garry Moore. It was estimated that a crowd of 18,000 filled the arena to witness the event. 

Jim McKay is the host.

 NOTE: Mike Todd conned the CBS program  PLAYHOUSE 90 into covering the spectacle, live. But when the crowd got out of control, a bland publicity stunt turned into a giant food fight.

News Anchor  Walter Cronkite covers the event.  
  

 NOTE: Five months later, on March 22, 1958, Mike Todd died in an airplane crash.                                                               
#13895: MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE, 36TH ANNUAL, THE
1962-11-22, NBC, 5 min.
Chris Schenkel, Bud Palmer, Bill McCord

The 36th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's.The parade started in 1924,tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade


The 35th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from Central Park to Herald Square in New York City. 

Hosts: Bud Palmer and Chris Schenkel

Only the final 5 minutes of the parade was recorded, including the appearance of Santa Claus. We hear end credits and names of the sponsors of the parade by announcer Bill McCord, who was the announcer of the NBC TV Thanksgiving Day Parade for 21 consecutive years (1958-1978). 
Sign off. 


  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the early 1970's are lost, or not known to presently exist in any broadcast form, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full. One archived segment of the November 22, 1973 NBC MACY's THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE resides at The Paley Center for Media, and a segment of the November 26, 1959 CBS coverage of the THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE is archived at The Paley Center for Media. Not one pre-1980 TV Thanksgiving Day Parade is archived by The Library of Congress or by UCLA Film & Television Archive. 
  Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly only as clips than the 1952-1971 parades. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality till the 2000's. 

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons. The toy float concept was introduced in the 1960s, with a turkey-shaped one, introduced in 1973, eventually becoming parade mascot Tom Turkey.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather).

Hosts: Chris Schenkel, Bill McCord, and Bud Palmer.

The 40th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's. Hosts for the NBC Television viewing audience are Betty White and Lorne Greene. Star attractions are Santa Claus and the balloons, including the new Superman, and Smokey the Bear, joining old favorites Bullwinkle, Elsie the Cow, Popeye, Donald Duck, Dino the Dinosaur, Linus the Lionhearted, and a dragon. 

The parade started in 1924,tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally since 1947 and on NBC since 1952.

Hosts are Betty White and Lorne Greene who have hosted the Macy's Annual Thanksgiving Parade from 1963. 
 
Scheduled to appear, among others, are Wayne Newton, Bruce Yarnell,and The Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.

  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the late 1970's are lost, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full (one hour kinescope of the 1959 NBC TV Macy's parade). Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video tapes were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade or even segments, and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly as home recorded video taped excerpts than the 1952-1971 parades which were rarely recorded or archived in any video or audio format. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. However, those extant clips are very brief and not qualitative, visually. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present, with the exception of the 1981 parade, have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality until the 2000's. Thankfully, the pristine audio air checks of seven different Thanksgiving Day Parades (six complete broadcasts) exist as pristine audio in the Archival Television Audio, Inc. collection. Just close one's eyes and listen and imagine stepping back in time over half a century ago at the Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in Herald Square, New York...an American tradition.

During the first television years, the parade went through changes.
