1. At War with the Army

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - At War with the Army, a terrific Martin & Lewis comedy classic about the craziness of being a soldier in the US Army. Jerry Lewis stars as pfc Alvin Korwin, who as you might expect, is a goofy nerd with a heart of gold. Meanwhile - Dean Martin plays First Sgt. Vic Puccinelli, a childhood friend of Korwin's, who is a callous womanizer, trying to dodge an airhead, former sweetheart named Millie... who is in trouble, i.e. pregnant. Jean Ruth is terrific in her role as Millie. The film also introduces Polly Bergen, who plays Helen - Vic's current girlfriend. They do a beautiful duet in an old style recording booth - where soldiers would send nifty audio messages to friends and family back home.

2. Boudu Saved From Drowning

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel proudly presents an enchanting 1932 Jean Renoir film called Boudu sauve des eaux, or in English - Boudu Saved from Drowning. A poor homeless man named Boudu tries to drown himself in the Seine River, but is saved by the wealthy book store owner, Edouard Lestingois who was watching Boudu from his window. Boudu moves in with the family and has quite an impact on each of their lives. Priape Boudu is played by Michel Simon, who was a major star in France. Basically - he was like the French Charlie Chaplin or Jerry Lewis. Kind of like a national treasure. Also of note, this film caused a major scandal when it was released. Not because of the kissing or extramarital affairs (hey, they're French)... but people took major exception to, of all things - the filthy side of being homeless. Boudu's table manners, especially eating the food with his fingers. Totally taboo! The Police came and shut down theaters. It was a very serious matter at the time. In addition, Boudu doesn't seem particularly grateful to Monsieur Lestingois' generosity. Folks were infuriated by this as well.

4. One Step Beyond - Trap, The

Description: Need another terrific episode of One Step Beyond? No problem. One Step Beyond was a cool Sci-Fi TV show from the late 50s, early 60s... that inspired a few other cool sci-fi tv shows like The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. The Trap which aird on 11/15/1960 features Mike Kellin in a dual role as Dominic DeNovio and Fred Gibbs, two identical twins separated at birth. This episode explores the psychic connection between identical twins. How one twil can burn themselves, and the other will feel it. In this story, Dominic Denovio starts acting very weird and gets sick from dehydration. It turns out his identical twin brother fell in a deserted mine shaft and got hurt. Denovio's ranting in the hospital helps save his identical twin brother. One of my favorite parts of this episode is how different the priest's chin looks. I have never seen one like that. This episode is real weird one, bet you like it! BTW - you can also check out Mike Kellin in At War with the Army on LikeTelevision's Movie channel.
