I received an e-mail from Bob, who is trying to identify a Western movie that he believes was broadcast on ABC, CBS or NBC in the early morning (it was on around 1AM) on Thursday, November 22nd, 1973 in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
Unfortunately, the fact that it was aired on a network affiliate doesn’t necessarily mean it was a network broadcast and that makes things more difficult. I admit to not being very knowledgeable about network late night programming which is why I’m throwing this out to the masses.
Based on television listings I’ve looked at, on Wednesday, November 21st at 11:30PM, ABC began an installment of ABC’s Wide World of Entertainment titled “JFK: A Time to Remember;” it ran until 1AM. On CBS was No Time for Sergeants, part of The CBS Late Movie, which aired from 11:30PM to 1:50AM. And NBC broadcast The Tonight Show from 11:30PM to 1AM followed by Tomorrow from 1-2AM.
Given that No Time for Sergeants cannot be called a Western, it seems that the movie Bob’s trying to identify had to have been a local broadcast that followed the aforementioned network programming. But I don’t have access to any local television listings for Lewisburg, West Virginia.
Can anyone out there help Bob find the name of this movie?
