I always thought this looked like a giant frog monster :-P

its amazing how i can be transported back from 55 years old to a young
teenager in 20 seconds

Author textronox (2 months)
This lasted for a long time until 1985 came and Oprah and the news killed
the tradition for me in NYC

Author aboylegolcom (3 months)
How exciting the world was then. Falling asleep to the 4:30 movie after
school was an institution. Homework can wait. (I always remember the 4:30
movie as being much better than WOR's Million Dollar Movie, but don't know
if I could tell you a single title I saw of either.)

i remember this theme the abc afternoon movie i was in grade school and
when i came home my sister would have the tv blasted and this theme would
be playing true memories thank you

After reading all of the comments, I am amazed that the 4:30 movie is known
mostly by people from the NYC area. I grew up in Detroit in the 70s and
this intro takes me right back to that carefree time, coming home after
school, having a snack and watching the 4:30 movie. I remember Beach Week,
Monster Week, and Elvis Week like it was yesterday. Gosh, I really miss
those times. Thanks for posting this rare find.

Being in my mid 50's, it's truly powerful, how this music intro can
transform you to another era, and memories flood in to your head. The
only movie I remember watching from this was Rich Man, Poor, Man.

Author Ellie Dicker (4 months)
Thanks for posting this great TV intro!
Couldn't finish my homework fast enough so I could watch the 4:30 movie

Author pup lover (5 months)
Maybe this creeped a lot of us out because they showed those scary 70's TV
movies after this intro? At least, that's what I remember.

Author Karyl Miller (7 months)
I remember this from waaaay back when I was a little girl. Then ABC stopped
showing movies at 4:30, and extended the news. Stupid studio.

Author Scott Richards (7 months)
My favorite movie intro ever! Brings back those memories of after school
watching TV when it was winter outside and you were indoors. Thank you so
much for posting. Only complaint is that it's so short. Wish there was an
extended version :)

Monster week was awesome

Author Abdul Houser (9 months)
The music was great, but the logo used to scare me.

You rang!!!?

Author Shooga J (6 months)
Youtube indeed has everything. I could not believe this was anywhere! Oh
Being a kid and hoping for Fantastic Voyage or Monster week...{{sigh}} 

Author Dan Livni (2 months)
WOW i remember this theme as a kid.
I was 9 in 1979 and can remember coming home from school and always
watching the 4 30 movie. The theme was a great theme.

Author Tara Sigidi (1 year)
This was one of my favorite intros. This takes me back to my childhood!
Great times, when all you had to do was be a kid!!! Thanks so much for
posting this classic!!!

Author RRaquello (11 months)
I remember watching "Some Like It Hot" first time I ever saw it, on the 4:30
movie. I think they showed it at least over 3 days, each day 45 minutes of
movie, 45 minutes of commercials.

Author Heineken500 (9 months)
Thanks for posting. Great job. Yeah, this is the original.

Author ritter89 (8 months)
For a good while during my early childhood, I thought that I was looking at
the silhouette of a frog rather than a cameraman. I'm not sure that I even
knew what I motion picture camera looked like back then. Looking at now, I
still think that the final silhouette resembles a frog more than a camera
operator

Author DARK REALM RECORDS (10 months)
Thank you..Ive been looking for this ever since Planet of the Apes week!!

Author zl1vette427 (11 months)
We had the WABC-7 NY guy who actually produced this or knew who produced it
-- I can't find his posts.

Are you out there ?

Author MrGlanderson (1 year)
MONSTER WEEK was the best!

Author DavidB Feeney (1 year)
Planet of the Apes week!

Author promiseofanewday (1 year)
Odd. Of all the theme week's, I'll forever equate this intro with "horror
week"! The Spell, The Initiation of Sarah, The Devil's Daughter, Crowhaven
Farm and Bad Ronald! Didn't help that I was a latch key kid and would
often have the entire house (three stories and an attic and basement) to
myself around 4:30ish. For those reasons, I prefer apartments to this day
and big houses give me the heebie jeebies.

Author wmbrown6 (1 year)
From what I have been apprised by the original co-producer of the recording
of this theme (and my own research from that producer's pointers), it was
registered with ASCAP as "Big Show Theme" (a reference to the earlier
afternoon movie show title before being renamed "The 4:30 Movie"), written
by Walter Raim in or around 1968 - and recorded in New York City.

Author Brian53886 (1 year)
I'm so happy that I wasn't the only kid who used to think the cameraman
looked like a "FROG". Such good childhood memories!

Author augustine pacheco (1 year)
I always remember monster week.

Author Ann070558 (1 year)
How many times did you and I sit on our butts watching that intro? If we
had a dolor for each time we'd be in the Sound of France of at least
Ipanema.

Author Eric Grove (1 year)
This was a great sounding intro.

Author spideraxis (1 year)
I remember this at 4:30 PM, Ch.7 ABC in NYC. Saw it almost every day,
believe it came on after "Dark Shadows". Yes, to compress the movie into
90 minutes some parts were cut. But they were carefree, fun, high school
days. Days when I had my family, less responsibility, fewer worries, and
no idea the country and world were going to end up as they are now.

Here in Buffalo, WGR-TV2(an NBC outfit) would air "The Big Movie" weekdays.

WKBW, Channel 7, despite being an ABC/CapCities O-and-O, showed "Mike
Douglas," and later "John Davidson," at 4:30... no 4:30 Movie here.

Author Cicely Clark (1 year)
Does anyone remember horror week on The 4:30 Movie? That how I came to fear
now love Vincent Price.

Author saintquinn007 (1 year)
I remember this throughout the 70's on channel 7 in NYC....They would
deadfully butcher the movies into at least 2 parts...Then at 6 it was
Rodger Grimsby and Bill Beutel....
I'll never forget about 1974 (when I was 10) Watching Eyewitness news and
they were doing a segment on "breast exams" ....A doofus mess jew doctor
was rubbing and squeezing live a girl's big tits (showing how do do a
breast exam) and I remember going apeshit with a boner..... 

Author BalladOfThinMan (3 years)
miserabowl: same here! I'm in N.J. (Union County) and used to watch 4:30
movie from the mid 70's to '81; and mom would tell me to wash up for
dinner. Great soundtrack. Joe Riposo did a great job composing this.

Author bigjoetube (4 years)
I do. Do the homework and then the 430 movie. Then Roger Grimsby and Bill
Beutel for the news.

Author DanZero77 (4 years)
@CookyMonzta And of course his sign off "Hoping your news is good news, I'm
Roger Grimsby". Sadly, news these days is all about sensationalism and who
can get your attention the best these days. "WHAT COULD KILL YOU TONIGHT AT
11" Yeah, great. What happened to NEWS? Eyewitness News was great, at one
time!

Author TheCharlisseAngel (2 years)
OMG wow. I was randomly thinking of the Chiller Theatre intro and found
that and then I guess I clicked on a playlist and this one popped up. I
didn't remember this at all until I saw it. My goodness I was just a little
girl. So many memories flashed before my eyes of those good old days. I
lived in NYC. I miss NYC I live in Cali now.

Author William Hughes (3 years)
Living in Detroit, I remember when they moved the start of these movies
from 4:30 PM to 4:00 PM. I approved of this, as it meant the Movies were
not as heavily edited. Then a couple of years later they decided to start
the news at 5:30. So I ceased watching their Movies and switched to the
ones they were showing on Toledo's Ch. 11 (They also has Sci-Fi Week,
Planet of the Apes Week, Godzilla Week, Etc. Then along came a little
something called "Pay-TV".

Fantastic! I wish they would bring this back!

@DanZero77 You said it... 13, UHF and VHF...the aluminum foil on the
antenna and remoteless TV . A time when turning the channel actually was...
TURNING THE CHANNEL.. Too many channels not enough quality these days.
Fortunately we do have options other than cable these days. ;0)

Such good memories.I remember the movie "Whatever Happen to Baby Jane" --
one of the best 4:30 movies ever!

Author Ciro Morales (3 years)
I remember coming home from school in Jackson Heights and eagerly awaiting
the 4:30 movie. Thanks for the memories.

Author William Hughes (3 years)
@StukInBuf There is the Detroit Area bumper bouncing aroud there, but I
cannot find it. Since WABC New York had the same theme for their Afternoon
Movie, it will have to suffice for now. Black Friday was A LOT DIFFERANT
when I was growing up. The stores opened AT THEIR NORMAL TIMES back then
(Yes they were still crowded, but they didn't have the "Doorbusters" they
have today. One other thing, the stores were CLOSED ON SUNDAYS.

Author louis tenore (2 years)
ah the good old days of local tv before stations started doing early
newscasts and stupid talk shows

Loved the Planet of the Apes weeks. Perfect excuse to avoid homework.

Author peter budenjoon (3 years)
WOW, this brings back memories of a time where my life consisted of nothing
but PURE MAGIC. Innocent 11 year old boy who neither knew or cared about
the real monsters out there. This video exemplifies to me, the best time
machine out there on the market. The very moment the video and song played,
I was instantaneuosly transported back. But the most frightnening
experience was how I physically felt the mood of those days. They were fun
days, but spooky at the same time. Can't explain it.
