3. Bill and Coo

Description: This unique live action film features trained birds in a story situation. An entire town is scaled to bird size - complete with popsicle stick picket fences and cardboard signs.

Nominated for an Oscar - I do not think any birds died while making this film.

9. One Step Beyond - Aerialist

Description: This is another terrific episode of One Step Beyond, 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 Aerialist features Mike Connors, best known for his work as TV detective Joe Mannix, as Mario Patruzzio, the son of an Italian circus family skilled in the art of the flying trapeze. Mario has an argument with his father before the show about his wife, who is acting like a bimbo from the father's perspective. Mario, who is responsible for catching his Dad during the show... says well maybe I won't catch you tonight, pops. Guess what happens? Dad lays paralyzed in the hospital... and Mario contemplates suicide... and then in a bizarre episode of bi-location.... his dad (Gino Patruzzio played by Robert Carricart) saves his son with a daring catch ..... miles away in his hospital bed, still not able to move a muscle. Search for bi-location to view another One Step episode that examines the mysterious happening in the psychic world of the unexplained. John Newland is our delightful host.

10. One Step Beyond - Clown

Description: In this episode -The Clown, a jealous boyfriend kills his girlfriend, played by Yvette Mimieux, when he finds her hiding in Pippo the Clown's trailer at the carnival. Then - he is haunted by the menacing clown - but all in some dream world. This episode is probsably the original of all the scary clown tv and movie themes we have seen since. Really great episode - check out that clown's face! As a special treat - we provided this download as MPEG-1 files. Very nice - make a DVD or a VCD of this cool show.

11. One Step Beyond - Forests of the Night

Description: This episode of One Step Beyond features the great Alfred Ryder in the lead role, with Mark Roberts and Douglas Dick. Three guys go hunting, and play a funky fortune telling game with chopsticks. Ryder picks a weird chopstick, and they read him the message. When he hears it, he seems to be possessed - by a leopard, who eventually takes over his spirit. Later on, Ryder disappears - and they find a leopard in the American west, where no leopards live. No zoo or circus has reported one missing either! You probably remember Mark Roberts and Douglas Dick from Perry Mason, where each of them were guest stars in a few episodes. Mark Roberts was also on General Hospital.

12. One Step Beyond - Night of April 14th

Description: This is a great One Step Beyond episode about the maiden voyage of the unsinkable Titanic, and a favorite of fans of this terrific Sci-Fi Tv show. A bride to be, played by Barbara Lord, has nightmares about drowning in icy waters. Her fiance, played by Patrick Macnee then tells her they will not honeymoon in Switzerland, but will take a cruise to New York on the Titanic. Patrick Macnee is best known for his role as Steed in The Avengers with Miss Emma Peel, played by enchanting Diana Rigg. Also of note - John Newland discusses a novel written by Morgan Robertson called Futility, written in 1898, 14 years before The Titanic sank. In the book, an unsinkable ship 800 feet long (Titanic was 882 feet) hits an iceberg and sinks. Both ships could go 25 knots, both carried around 3,000 passengers, and both sunk in April. Oddly enough - the ship in Robertson's novel was called the Titan. You also get some vintage special effects, that compared to James Cameron's 1997 movie look pretty lame, but for their day, these fx were the bomb! I prefer Macnee to Leonardo DiCaprio anyway. And Barbara Lord is very attractive, but Kate Winslet seems more compelling and lovely, probably because Lord is a bit whacko in this episode. This is a great episode - we should offer it as a download in the near future.

13. Only One Night

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - Only One Night - with Ingrid Bergman, Edvin Adolphson and Aino Taube. Based on the novel by Harald Tandrup. A carnival worker joins high society and is matched with a beautiful woman. B/W - Swedish with subtitles.

14. Pajama Game

Description: The Pajama Game became the first in a string of smash hits for visionary choreographer Bob Fosse soon after it opened on Broadway in May of 1954. The play opened to rave reviews and was performed well over 1000 times. So when it came time to re-purpose it for the silver screen, Warner Bros. decided to basically lift the entire production from the stage at the St. James Theater and transport it to the sound stage in Hollywood. The female lead was changed from Janis Paige to Doris Day for box-office reasons and a couple of minor roles were switched out but, all-in-all what we see in the film is a faithful replication of the original Broadway production and a level of ensemble seldom seen on film. If you can stop being soooo sophisticated and are ready, willing and able to dispend reality for a little while, you will really enjoy this wonderful piece of period fluff.

15. Till the Clouds Roll By

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents Till the Clouds Roll By, which tells the story of one of America's greatest songwriters - Jerome Kern. 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.
