Bill Collins introduces his Golden Years of Hollywood weekly movie 'the Lady Vanishes' directed by Alfred Hitchcock, also advertises a competition to win Pretty Woman double passes. Some people thought he ranted on a bit which he did but you would be hard pressed to find anyone who knew more about classic Hollywood movies and i personally found his intros very interesting.


I came here as the ABC shared this video. I was a floor cameraman for channel 10 in the early 80's and always looked forward to my Bill Collins shift once a week. He was just a pleasure to be near and took time between intros to chat to the floor crew. A rare media person like a Ray Martin where there is no difference between the inner personal and professional personas.
Bill was a true example of this.
Bill, I thank you for taking the time to chat with me one on one many times during the brief time I worked with you. I wish your dear wife Joan my deepest condolences.

My brother is of the opinion that Martin Short based his character of Jiminy Glick on Bill.
Loved watching Bill Collins hosting the Golden years of Hollywood every Saturday night when I was a kid. Very knowledgeable and a fine presenter, thanks for bringing back the memories!
