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.

4. Drinking and Eating PSA

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents a bizarre old PSA (public service announcement) which alerts us that eating a lot of food has no effect on how the body absorbs alcohol. Duh? You mean if I eat a loaf of sponge bread it won't sop up all that wine? Why who knew! The guy in the commercial has some trouble driving and ends up getting his Volkwagon Beetle pinched between two trucks.

5. Drunken Angel

Description: This is a classic movie - by perhaps the greatest filmmaker of all time, Akira Kurosawa. Dr. Sanada, played by Takashi Shimura (the leader in Seven Samurai), treats a petty criminal named Matsunaga (Toshiro Mifune) with tuberculosis, and tries to get him to work at treating his disease (stop drinking, smoking, get some rest, etc.) Meanwhile, another gangster gets out of prison and a feud breaks out between rival factions. A cool look at the underworld in Japan in post WWII, and the courage of a poor doctor, who is trying to cure another human, even if he is a criminal. We regret that the subtitles are difficult to read - but the story is pretty easy to follow.

6. I Drunk Too Much

Description: I Drunk Too Much comes to LikeTelevision from Jon Bare, out in sunny California. This short film and music video tells the story how Jon got a D.U.I. in California because he ... well.... had too much to drink. One is reminded of the Bobby Fuller Four - I fought the law... and the law won. Jon still has the Mazda RX 7, and animated the dancing fried chicken legs. Check out this mondo music video, rolled up in broadband internet media, and folded into a cool song. Also - check out James Dean, doing a PSA with Gig Young on Driving Safety.

A man pours himself a cup, and sees a man's reflection in the water smiling back at him. He dumps it out several times, but eventually drinks it all up. Hmmm... not a good idea, as it seems he may have quaffed the man's soul in the process.

12. Rules of the Game, The

Description: Jean Renoir's Rules of the Game is one of the greatest films ever made. As you might already know, Jean Renoir was the son of the remarkable impressionist painter, Auguste Renoir - whose paintings are so beautiful and glorious that they are actually worth the millions that they sell for today. This film is perhaps Jean Renoir's finest work, though some might prefer his other masterpiece, La Grande Illusion, also available on this site. Unlike Grande Illusion that is a heavy film about the tragic ironies of war, this film is hilarious satire about the fading French aristocracy and a wonderful portrayal of the human comedy of love, marriage, and relationships.

Johnny is their leader and hero who makes all the decisions for the group. For instance - Dave (Robert Bean) has a new girlfriend, and she is lame (like from the good side of the tracks) so Johnny tells Dave to lose the chick (Nancy, played by Georgiana Carter). Dave doesn't want to give up his girlfriend, so Johnny decides to move in. Of course all this ends in trouble with a capital T, as Johnny ends up killing a motorcycle cop and an extended stay at the jailhouse.
