14. Are You Popular - Random's Cut

Description: LikeTelevision™ presents - another bizarre entry in a class of films we call - Funky Shorts. And oh my - this one surely is. Frank Random, LikeTelevision's creative caveman, put this one together, combining snippets of a 1948 US Government Health Film called - Are You Popular - and another decades old gem called - Co-Ed Secrets. Are You Popular is a How to film of dating do's and don'ts for teens - and Co-Ed Secrets is a creepy 1950's Frat House film. While there's no nudity, it is still quite disturbing, at least to this uptight midwesterner. So move over Sergei Eisenstein ... and check out the wonders of montage, Frank Random style. Caution - this might be disturbing to some viewers. Best for adults with a well-baked sense of irony.

15. At Your Service

26. Blue Women Art

Description: LikeTelevision is prud to present - another funky short. The weird little gem is called Blue Women Art. Long before Intel hired The Blue Man Group - heck, long before Intel even made their first integrated circuit - there was a bizarre Czech painter named Yves Klein. Klein was known for painting expressionist paintings - where naked women all slathered in blue paint, used other naked women also covered in blue paint, as living paint brushes. Meanwhile - a live symphony would play either some music - or ooooooo, how arty - a single monotone. ohmmmmm. Sounds like quite an evening, huh? Check out this short clip which shows one such event. Yes - it was Yves Klein who wrote the monotone symphony in 1949. It concisted of one note. Genius - well maybe not. I went to a site (yvesklein.de) that featured an mp3 of 1 minute of the opus solo notus - and it was really annoying.

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Despotism. Here's a question for you - Despotism or Democracy? Which society do you live in? The film was originally created by Encyclopedia Britanica shortly after World War II (1945). We edited the original and trimmed down the total length to make it more enjoyable, and of course, more ironic - given the current world situation, with some oppressive regimes all over the place - and the potential for concern regarding the Patriot Act in the USA. As such - while the original content is quite dated - the metrics used to measure the freedom in a society, remain very valid. Check it out - i think you'll enjoy it.

74. Escape from Sobibor

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Escape from Sobibor starring Alan Arkin, Joanna Pacula and Rutger Hauer. Sobibor was a Jewish concentration camp in World War II that was created for the sole purpose of exterminating as many Jewish people as quickly as possible - part of Hitler's notorious final solution, which called for eliminating the Jewish people from Europe. Most estimates believe that 260,000 people were killed in the Nazi gas chambers at Sobibor - making it a small sized operation compared to Auschwitz or Dachau. What makes Sobibor so noteworthy - the escape on October 14, 1943 when over 300 of the 600 Jewish prisoners escaped into the Polish death camp and lived to tell their story. The film does a remarkable job of telling the story of these determined heros - and heroines who refused to give into despair, and hoped in spite of a hopeless situation. The film was nominated for 5 Emmy Awards, and Won the Golden Globeaward n 1988 for Best Motion Picture made for TV. Excellent.

190. Outlaw, The

Description: Howard Hughes' production of The Outlaw is an interesting piece of film history for many reasons. While it was finished in 1940, it was dropped by 20th Century Fox due to critics' pans and the censors balking at Jane Russell's bulging cleavage. It seems Hughes Aircraft engineers even designed a special cantilevered bra to enhance Russell's attributes, long before her role in the Playtex cross your heart, lift and seperate bra commercials. (the gun control lobby today would be throwing fits, as Russell was packing a pair of 38s). In addition, famed director Howard Hawks was fired during production by Hughes, as there was some animosity between Russell and Hawks, and at the time, Russell was Howard Hughes' girlfriend.

280. Third Man, The

Description: The Third Man is wonderful film about post war Europe and the corruption that flourished as crooks made fortunes in the Black Market. Pulp fiction writer Holly Martins is looking for his friend, Harry Lime in Vienna. But it seems Harry is dead. He meets up with his girlfriend, Anna Schmidt - and is disturbed that the stories of Harry's demise don't add up. So he goes to the law -and learns from Major Calloway that Harry was a crook and a creep, who sold watered down penicillan in the Black Market. The film features obvious tributes to the 1936 Fritz Lang classic - M, about a child murderer - including the balloon man, the remarkable cinematography (Robert Krasker won the Best Oscar for Cinematography in 1951 for The Third Man), and the chase scenes in the streets of Germany (Austria-Hungary). You will also love the great music - Theme from the 3rd man, which was played on a zither by Anton Karas. Make sure you check out the preview. We also recommend that you check out Chet Atkin's version of the theme, which is just as remarkable as the Karas' zither masterpiece.

281. Till the Clouds Roll By

Jerome Kern was nothing short of amazing. This film tries to straddle the line between a biography and a Broadway Show - with mixed results. Still, Jerome Kern led a fascinating life and his songs are as remarkable today as they were when he wrote them.

298. Winky The Watchman

Description: This cartoon was made in the mid forties - and was probably sponsored by the American Dental Association. Basically, this animation is REALLY weird - and features some real world scenes at a dentist's office with some kids.. who tells them the story of Winky the Watchman, who is in charge of making sure the pillars are taken care of. (The pillars are a set of teeth). Also has some unintended racial stereotyping foolishness - which just makes it even more creepy... as the Good 'uns are white folks... and the Bad 'uns are black... who seem to speak in the ridiculous Steppin Fetchit manner, often prevelent in entertainment made in this period. If you like Dental humor - make sure you search for Dentist, and find a bunch more gems. If you liked this one... you'll love Dr. Barre - the hockey team dentist.
