Years before Hockey Night in Canada established itself on the CBC network and in the living rooms of fans across the country, game coverage was only a two period broadcast. This program filled the time-slot from 7:30 to 9 each Saturday night. Alan Manings was the host of this show, introducing a selection of feature films from Hollywood.
