Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Chrysler car commercial from 1956 featuring the forward look, a sleek aerodynamic style innovation that heralded the age of those cool fins on the tails of cars made in the 1950. I am a huge fan of the mondo fins - hope you like the series of 4 commercials for The Forward Look.

11. Coke TV Commercial - Sports

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Coke TV Commercial that features a ton of major Sports heros from the era, and how they love to enjoy a Coke after a heated contest. Yes - obviously before the days of Sports drinks like Gatorade and other special drinks that claimed to return body fluids after sweating. Well... back in the day - I assure you, a nice cold coca cola really hit the spot after a sweaty game of flag football. You can have your electrolytes - just give me an ice cold coke in the classic glass bottle.

15. Dubious Lampoonery - Sniper Sportsman

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents Doobious Lampoonery, some short video parodies from a 1977 film called American Raspberry. The list of stars in this film is seemingly endless. Check out IMDB for a full listing. The series - Doobious Lampoonery contains adult situations, course language and some brief nudity. As such, it is recommended for adults only. The third clip in this 7 pack is called Sniper. Warren Oates is the celebrity guest on a show called Celebrity Sportsman. Warren and the show host (Robert Ridgely) climb a tower and shoot their limit on the students below. Yikes! Warren Oates is especially proud of the beefy football letterman he bagged - must be a 280 pounder he boasts. Given all that has happened since this was created, the comedy is kind of creepy too.

18. Grande Illusion, La

Description: Jean Renoir's La Grande Illusion, a.k.a. Grand Illusion is a wonderful film about 2 French Officers during WWI who are captured and sent to a prison camp. Erich von Stroheim, best known for his role as Max Von Meyerling in Billy Wilder's Sunset Blvd, stars as a German Ace Captain von Rauffenstein (who shot down the 2 Frenchmen) and then gets reassigned to become commandant (he's not like Werner Von Klemperer, a.k.a. Colonel Klink) of a prison camp after sustaining serious injury by getting shot down. There's additional tension and class conflict between the French Captain De Boeldieu (Pierre Fresnay), who is an aristocrat and Lieutenant Marechal (Jean Gabin) who is a mechanic. The film also portrays an underlying anti-semitism, with the character Lieutenant Rosenthal (Marcel Dalio), who is slowing down an escape attempt when he strains his ankle. This is a really great film, voted in the top 250 of all time at IMDB.com.

Description: The LikeTelevision™ History channel proudly presents, This Day in History - August 12!

22. Jackie Robinson Story

Description: The Jackie Robinson Story was made in 1950 and stars Jackie Robinson as himself. The story is an interesting commentary on race relations and the trials experienced by the Robinson family during this troubled period. By today's standards, the movie has several sections that are insulting and gratuitous - especially since this was a “feel good“ movie. Some of the historic footage of Ebbets Field and baseball are classic re-creations, made in the same period.

23. James Dean PSA for Driving Safety

Description: James Dean in an ironic PSA (public service announcement) for driving safety with Gig Young. A disinterested Dean tells young kids to drive safely and that the life you might save, could be his. (Dean was killed in a terrible car wreck in his Porsche 550 Spyder, which was a convertible Sports car. He had already received a ticket for speeding that same day!) I believe this was made for the California Highway Patrol - probably as part of a plea bargain to get out of another speeding ticket. Dean was killed by a fellow named Turnipseed - see the James Dean Story, a documentary on LikeTelevision, for more on the story.

27. Last Time I Saw Paris

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - Last Time I Saw Paris, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Van Johnson, Donna Reed, and Walter Pidgeon. A fun movie that appears to be based on the life of American novelist, F. Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote a bunch of terrific short stories (Diamond as Big as the Ritz is a personal favorite) but is best known for writing The Great Gatsby. The film is a loose adaptation of his time spent in Paris as a shallow rich guy searching for some meaning in his life. (I think it was Gertrude Stein, or Ernest Hemingway maybe... who coined the term - The Lost Generation, which spoke of these idle rich American artists who wasted their talents getting drunk and carousing in Paris).

28. Lou Gehrig Story

His list of classics is nearly endless - including Smoke Gets in your eyes, Old Man River, The Way You Look Tonight, A Fine Romance and Look for the Silver Lining. Plus 1000 others. 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.
