[Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour Promo] “Carroll O’Connor visits Sonny and Cher at their new night and time. Wednesday at 8, 7 central on CBS.”
[Hit Man Movie Trailer] “The heavy dudes were running scared. Once they turned him on, they couldn’t turn him off. ‘Yeah, I know him, Mr. Zito.’ ‘Get him.’ They wanted him dead. But who could do the job on the Hit Man? Bernie Casey is Tackett, the Hit Man. ‘Hit Man, now showing at the beautiful Indiana theater down town. Continuous matinees daily.'”
[WISH-TV News Promo] “All the news at 11 on Channel 8.”
