Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - The 1936 Olympics (Part one) - a landmark film of the 1936 Olympics by Leni Riefenstahl. Adolf Hitler is the host of the the Olympics - how's that for irony. In spite of all the disturbing footage of people doing that Hitler “hi“ sign, Joseph Goebbels, and Musselini - the film is a great archive from the athletic competition. Check out the old high jump techniques.

3. Black Brigade, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - The Black Brigade starring Richard Pryor, Billy Dee Wiliams, Stephen Boyd, Robert Hooks, Moses Gunn, and Roosevelt Grier. A white southern Captain looking to get a promotion leads a group of black soldiers behind the German lines to try and save a bridge from getting blown up. Stephen Boyd, best known for his role as Messala in Ben-Hur (the bad guy who had the big spikes on his chariot) plays Captain Beau Carter. Comedian Richard Pryor plays a frightened soldier for most of the movie in an annoying red beret and former NFL football great Rosie Grier (L.A. Rams) plays the funny big cuddly GI. (Rosie trivia - he was very skilled at Macrame and helped catch Bobby Kennedy's assassin Sirhan Sirhan on June 6, 1968 along with olympian Rafer Johnson). Billy Dee Williams is the street wise kid from Harlem and Moses Gunn plays the cool headed doctor.

4. Classic TV Commercials - Coke

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents this classic coke commercial featuring an Olympic theme. Part of the Real Thing era, coca cola bottlers all over the world salute the olympians, present and future. Features kids playing soccer, a spear is thrown by a Masai warrior - which is juxtaposed with an athelete throwing a javelin and a cool shot of coke bottles from around the world. I think this ad is from 1972.
