1. 1936 Olympia - Part one

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.

2. Beverly Hillbillies - Hair Raising Hollyday

Description: LikeTelevision™ Fans - this episode - Hair Raising Hollyday - features The Clampetts wanting to celebrate “Possum Day“. Meanwhile Granny is practicing medicine again, and creates a highly effective hair growing treatment. (a poultice, which is a mass of cloth, bread and herbs etc., applied hot - as medicine for the body. I did not know that.) Plus the big finish - the Possum Day parade. Also stars Fred Clark as Dr. Clyburn. Highly Recommended!

3. Carnival Story

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - Carnival Story - with Anne Baxter, Steve Cochran, Abe Berber, and Lyle Bettger. Based on the story by Marcel Klauber - a travelling carnival show takes the act to Germany after a bad tour in the US. Anne Baxter stars as Willie, an aspiring German girl who learns how to high dive from the great Frank Collini.

4. God Told Me To

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents God Told Me To starring Tony Lo Bianco as Police detective Peter J. Nicholas who is trying to solve a series of random killings where the shooter claims each time that God told him to. Very weird and creepy, which is what you might expect to find in a movie with Andy Kaufman.

5. I Like Ike - Presidential Campaign ad

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a wonderful blast from the past, from 1952 - the I Like Ike presidential campaign ad for Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served two terms (1953-1961) as President of the United States. This ad is a less than slick cartoon with some terrific caricatures. Ike was the 34th President and served as Supreme Commander for US troops on D-Day, the massive beach landing on the French coast that led to the end of World War II. He also served as head of NATO forces in 1951 before being aproached by Republican officials who urged him to run for President. During the Cold War, he worked hard to achieve peace during a time when the world was struggling with the terrors of Communism which were spreading fast and threatening democracies across the globe. He prosposed that the US and the Soviets exchange military information but was rebuffed. However meetings were held and the talks helped reduce tensions. Finally - we can also thank Ike for the US interstate highway system and the impact that had on our ability to travel as well as the positive economic consequences of increased interstate commerce. Yep - Dwight D. Eisenhower not only seemed like a decent fellow, I bet he was a good man too. The tone of this political ad from 50 years ago is in sharp contrast to the ads we suffer through today - and we hope that the people who make these ads gain some insight for future presidential campaign themes.

6. I Love A Parade

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - I love a parade. This cartoon features a bunch of circus animals leading the parade into town to help announce the big carnival show. Plus - a parody of the carnival freak shows - with a guy who looks like Ghandi as the thin man from India, a whacko rubber man, a strong man and on and on. Why - it's even got the sideshow barker!

7. King Vidor's The Big Parade Is Released

Description: The LikeTelevision™ History channel proudly presents, This Day in Hollywood - September 10!

8. Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring, a cult classic that helps understand tragic realities from the Love Generation era starring Sally Field, David Carradine, Jackie Cooper, Eleanor Parker and Lane Bradbury. Dennie Miller (Sally Field) plays a sad young girl (yes... from a good home) who learns about life and the hippy peace & love myths the hard way. She returns home only to find her Mom and Dad making the same mistakes that helped encourage her to escape the suburban lifestyle still in force. Meanwhile, she laments as she watches her little sister travel down the road that leads to learning the hard way.

9. 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.
