579 viewsJohnny Olson, TPIR's first announcer, about to transform himself into superhero 'Captain Klutz.' Just over his shoulder is the crawl board that shows the "short credits," the "MGBT" logo, the Television City credit, and the show logo. And just to the left is the tall board used to display the promotional consideration credits. Note its shape: by being curved inward it prevented the individual lines from being distorted, an effect known as "keystoning." A camera would tilt down each board, which would make the information "roll" up the screen.
