Back in the 60’s, in New York City, there was a movie of the day to coincide with after we got home from school. I think it was called The Big Show on WABC channel 7. Anyways, there was one movie that completely blew my mind and I’ve never been able to find out anything about it. After doing some research it’s like it never existed. Ok, here it goes…

It started out, from what I can remember,with this guy who kind of looked like Bob Crane sitting in a dentist chair. He’s ready to get his tooth pulled, or some such similar procedure , and the dentist turns around to face him and he has disappeared ! But not only that, the only thing left were his smoking/dry ice clothes in the dentist chair. The dentist was naturally freaked.
Cut to The Dark Ages in France. He’s running around naked because his clothes are back in the 20th century dentist chair and the only thing I remember is he gets caught and an old French lady cackling and yelling for his execution by yelling “Ze guillotine! Ze guillotine!! They’re about to chop his head off and he disappears and winds up back in the 20th century dentist chair. The End.

If you could help me with this it would be beyond unbelievable! Ok, thanks for taking the time to read this insane request but I thought if anybody would know it would be youze guys. Thank you so much.

Answered question

“4:30 movie” and “the big show” were wabc shows that I see existed. I cannot find a good comprehensive list of their films, but may have been done by showing same actor all week. There are quite a few blogs about this program, which they may have a better handle on the period, but, myself, cannot find this dentist movie anywhere. Even figuring if it is sci fi or fantasy is proving difficult. Was there any plot other than him disappearing and ending up in middle ages? I know imdb has it, I just need one word that the plot would contain. I assume it would be made prior to the end of the 4:30 era…..
