REMEMBER THE SUNDAY NIGHT MOVIE?

The ABC Sunday Night Movie presented theatrical feature films airing on
TV for the first time. The feature films were edited for content, to remove
objectionable material, It was famous in the late 1970s for its theme music 
and brightly colored marquee. For many years, until the early 1980s, the
announcer for all of ABC’s movie shows was network staff announcer Joel
Crager
