Eagle PROMO

Filmed 17-18 April 1978
Location SVT Studios, Stockholm, Sweden
Broadcast
Notes Directed by Lasse Hallström.  The bird scenes were taken from the footage filmed for "Eagle" in "ABBA - The Movie".

This was the first ABBA PROMO to be shot on video tape as opposed to being filmed. The main reason was not only to have the desired special effect recreated effectively, but as all ABBA's PROMOs were always mastered on "film" in order to have them screened internationally without technical problems caused by different countries having different video/TV systems.

Watch Out For Benny and Björn - they only feature for about 12 seconds in total!
