1. Amos and Andy - Check and Double Check

Description: It is with some hesitation... that LikeTelevision™ presents this Amos and Andy classic film - Check and Double Check. There are some high points in the film that make it more interesting from a historical perspective. It was made in 1930 and is Amos and Andy's first talkie. There's even a part that features Duke Ellington and His Cotten Club Orchestra. Oddly enough, Animator extraordinaire Seymour Kneitel (of Popeye and Casper fame).... made a cartoon with a catchy title - Chick and Double Chick. Hmmm that sounds like an interesting cartoon!

2. Ballet Mecanique

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents Fernand Leger's remarkable 1924 short film Ballet Mechanique. Fernand Leger was one of the greatest French Cubist painters (do a google image search of his name) and a contemporary of Pablo Picasso. In the early days of film as an artform, Leger created this masterpiece - which is landmark film in the development of montage, a cinematic tool that juxtiposes two or more images to infer related ideas or events. The best known example is Sergei Eisenstein's scene from Battleship Potemkin - the Odessa Steps segment with the baby carriage rolling down the steps and the mother's eyeglasses - made a year after this film.

3. Beverly Hillbillies - Jed Buys Stock

Jed tells Mr. Drysdale he wants to buy some stock - and uses the telly-phone to place his order with the operator. Mr Drysdale recommends IBM - Jed would rather buy cows, chickens, goats and other livestock. Meanwhile - Mrs. Drysdale thinks she is going insane and can't wait to tell the doctors back in Boston.

4. Blood Feast

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - Blood Feast - with William Kerwin, Connie Mason, and Mal Arnold - as an insane Egyptian Caterer named Fuad Ramses. Mr. Ramses wants to recreate an ancient Egyptian Feast with young girls body parts. This film is remarkable for the year it was made - 1963 - and the bloody gore, captured in living color. Also - the acting performances are so terrible - they become memorable.

6. Don't Look in the Basement

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents The Forgotten, also know as - Don't Look in the Basement. I don't want to include any spoilers for this movie - because it is much more fun to let the craziness unravel before your eyes. So.. in general - things get really crazy in a rural insane asylum when the patients start to fight amongst themselves and find all kinds of clever ways to do each other in.

7. Dubious Lampoonery - Fake News

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 fourth clip in this 7 pack is called Fake News. It opens with the news anchor going to his reporter in the field. The most ironic comedy sketch is the news story - where Mr. Dorset (David Speilberg) And Mrs Dorset (Pamela Guest) win their long legal battle, allowing them to abort their child Timmy, up to their fifth year of life. This one is very funny and highly disturbing. The ending is insane. Ouch!

8. Jon Bare - Crying Time

Description: Crying Time - a short film / music video from Jon Bare. The world of tomorrow, which looks like a gigantic big box burito hamburger drive-thru Jack in the Satanic box. An insane 3-D vision from our buddy from California - Jon Bare. Yes, he's got too much time on his hands.

9. Last Man on Earth, The

Description: The Last Man on Earth was origianlly released in Italy as L'Ultimo uomo della Terra, and later redubbed in English as The Last Man on Earth. Starring Vincent Price, this is a terrific movie from 1964 based on Richard Matheson's classic Sc-Fi novel, I am Legend. A deadly virus (actually a bacillus, a rod shaped bacterium - like Bacillus anthracis, a.k.a. Anthrax) destroys most of the human population, turning people into horrible vampire zombie creatures who feed off of human blood. Vincent Price is a scientist trying to stay alive. He searches for a cure, destroys the monsters, and finds himself as the last real man on Earth. This film clearly inspired George Romero who directed the classic - Night of the Living Dead. In addition, Matheson's I am Legend was also the inspiration for Omega Man, with Charleton Heston. There is also a rumor of a remake of this classic, but the original will be hard to beat. We loved this film, and bet you will too!

10. Master Plan of Dr. Fu Manchu, The

Description: The LikeTelevision™ classic tv channel proudly presents The Adventures of Dr. Fu Manchu - our next installment is an episode titled The Master Plan of Dr. Fu Manchu. The evil Doctor Fu Manchu is planning give Adolf Hitler a new face via plastic surgery so he can resume his diabolical plot to create a master race. First, unsuspecting plastic surgeon gets kidnapped - and then horror or horrors, he is forced to operate on the top Nazi whacko of all time, Adolf Hitler. This episode is more humorous than scary, you'll love those German accents. Glen Gordon plays the diabolical Dr. Fu Manchu - a non Asian actor who does his level best to be Chinese. He delivers his lines in classic fashion, carefully choosing his phrases with very slow delivery as if he were some ancient Chinese Kung Fu master. Do your best to keep from laughing out loud - but you will fail, because it really is just too funny.

11. Monster Maker

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - The Monster Maker - with J. Carrol Naish as the fiendish Dr. Igor Markoff - an insane Doctor who gives the father of the women he desires an injection with the acromegaly virus. The “mickey“ leaves the father looking like a deformed monster. (We do recommend this as a viable dating technique).

Paul Stewart, a soldier who was missing in action, presumed dead - but now his poor wife will be meeting up with him. Oh, poor Janet. The plane is delayed, and she is feeling troubled - when she witnesses Dr Richard Cross murdering his wife with the candelstick.

15. Smiles of a Summer Night

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel is proud to present Smiles of a Summer Night, a tale of love, comedy, betrayal, religion, and carnal desires. Released in 1955 and directed by the Swedish master Ingmar Bergman, Sommarnattens leende is right up there in the list of top Bergman films. It reminded me very much of Jean Renoir's 1939 satiric look at love, Rules of the Game. My goodness, the folks back then sure did carry on. The scene at the end with seminarian son yearning for closure on his tortured love with his dad's wife - gets an answer from heaven. Well, not really - you will have to see it. A great movie - 10.

16. Wheels on Meals w/ Jackie Chan

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Wheels on Meals, a terrific early film from Jackie Chan and Samo Hung Kam-Bo. The film originally released as Kwai Tsan Ttseh was made in 1984 and stars Jackie Chan and Biao Yuen as street vendors who come to the rescue of a beautiful woman named Sylvia, played by Lola Fomer. As with most Jackie Chan movies, there's lots of great martial arts, comedy and bascially good clean fun.
