|This sign-off of Fox Toledo is somewhat
reminiscent of the 1980s sign-off and
sign-on used by WJZY-TV 46 in Charlotte NC, utilizing clips
from various 1930s-40s black-and-white movies. The great
comedian of stage, screen and radio, the late W.C.
Fields, is seen in a couple of these clips. Preceding the
sign-off is the closing of Cinema 36 Latenight,
which is followed by four public service announcements.
The SSB film is one produced by the U.S. Marine Corps
that features the Iwo Jima Memorial statue in Washington
DC. WUPW became one of the Fox Network's charter
affiliates just one year after signing on initially in
Video clip is from YouTube programmer capnvid47.
