1. 1936 Olympia - Part two

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents - The 1936 Olympics (Part two) - a landmark film of the 1936 Olympics by Leni Riefenstahl. Adolf Hitler is the host of the the Olympics - how's that for irony.

Check out the old swimming techniques.

2. 1960 Corvair TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic 1960 Chevy Corvair Infommercial - that seems to directly address Ralph Nader's objections in his book, Unsafe at Any Speed. If you do not know the history - the Chevy Corvair was a super cool car.... that got crushed because of concerns raised in Nader's book. For its day - the car was really no less safe than the rest of the lot, especially after the modifications to reduce rollovers. None of this mattered - the car was doomed commercially. Too bad - it was a really cool car.

4. Alka Seltzer TV Commercial - Pie Eating Professionals

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Alka Seltzer TV Commercial we call The Pie Eating Professionals. It begins with a classic front line of a football team that sprints to a table filled with pies in an eating contest. When the contest is over, the team retreats to the locker room, and instead of a Jacuzzi - and Ben Gay, there's a medicine cabinet with some Alka Seltzer. One of the old timers helps a worn out rookie get some relief from acid indigestion. Coke Commercials Ahhhh. Alka Seltzer cures the upset stomach. And yes - if the commercial feels familiar - it is an obvious tribute to the Mean Joe Green Coke commercial. And in case you were wondering, the other fellow in the commercial is indeed Joe DeRita, a.k.a. Curly Joe - the final third stooge to replace Curly Howard of the Three Stooges. This tv commercial is a true classic, i remember like yesterday! For more info on stomach ailments - go to the source at Alka-Seltzer.com

6. Are You Popular - Random's Cut

Description: LikeTelevision™ presents - another bizarre entry in a class of films we call - Funky Shorts. And oh my - this one surely is. Frank Random, LikeTelevision's creative caveman, put this one together, combining snippets of a 1948 US Government Health Film called - Are You Popular - and another decades old gem called - Co-Ed Secrets. Are You Popular is a How to film of dating do's and don'ts for teens - and Co-Ed Secrets is a creepy 1950's Frat House film. While there's no nudity, it is still quite disturbing, at least to this uptight midwesterner. So move over Sergei Eisenstein ... and check out the wonders of montage, Frank Random style. Caution - this might be disturbing to some viewers. Best for adults with a well-baked sense of irony.

7. At Your Service

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Made To Order, a cult classic film made in the 1940s - where this guy goes to a drive-in restaurant and some waitress starts dancing on the hood of his car. Some other gals join in the crazy sock hop dance and you wonder why he is so jazzed about letting these gals dance on his car. And oh my - is he looking up her skirt - this is very strange content and we wondered who it was created for. We thought maybe it was for returning GIs or maybe a bizarre screen test for Hollywood, who knows.

8. Australian Girls give CPR

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents another bizarre short video clip. This one features a group of lovely Australian lifeguards in 1960s skimpy bathing suits performing mass CPR on an eager group of young men (ooops - I thought they were Swedish... but they are Australian). For whatever reason - this looks like some kind of funky kissing contest. The best moment however is when one of the Australian lifeguards blows her breath in, then looks aside and listens for breathing. The angle of the shot makes it appear that she is staring at young man's speedo. HA!

9. 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.

10. Betty Boop - A Language all my Own

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Betty Boop cartoon called A Language All My Own. You see, Betty is so popular, she's known all over the world. So, she hops in a plane and flies off to Japan - to sing a boop boop be doop song - in Japanese. I am not kidding, Betty Boop gets in a kimono and does a Japanese rendition of a song and dance routine. This one's a hoot.

11. 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.

12. Blood of a Poet - Jean Cocteau

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Jean Cocteau's first film, Blood of a Poet, a bizarre avant garde classic featuring disturbing images of the artistic process. When the film initially debuted, a poster in the lobby offered a $25 reward to anyone if they could figure out the meaning of the film. As yet, this prize remains unclaimed. The question I have - is what happened to the money ($25)... or as the old saying goes, to find out what's really happening - follow the money.

13. Blue Women Art

Description: LikeTelevision is prud to present - another funky short. The weird little gem is called Blue Women Art. Long before Intel hired The Blue Man Group - heck, long before Intel even made their first integrated circuit - there was a bizarre Czech painter named Yves Klein. Klein was known for painting expressionist paintings - where naked women all slathered in blue paint, used other naked women also covered in blue paint, as living paint brushes. Meanwhile - a live symphony would play either some music - or ooooooo, how arty - a single monotone. ohmmmmm. Sounds like quite an evening, huh? Check out this short clip which shows one such event. Yes - it was Yves Klein who wrote the monotone symphony in 1949. It concisted of one note. Genius - well maybe not. I went to a site (yvesklein.de) that featured an mp3 of 1 minute of the opus solo notus - and it was really annoying.

14. Borrowers, The

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel proudly presents - The Borrowers starring Eddie Albert, Tammy Brimes, Dame Judith Anderson, and Karen Pearson. Based on Mary Norton's award winning children's story classic - it tells the tale of the diminutive (like itsy bitsy) Clock Family, who are about 2 inches tall and live beneath the floorboards of an old English country estate. They "borrow" stuff from the big humans who live above them and do everything they can to remain undetected. Things get a little crazy when Aunt Sophy's young nephew moves in. As the little Clock's learn - there's few things more dangerous than a curious little boy.

15. Boy in the Plastic Bubble, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a cult classic made for tv movie called The Boy in the Plastic Bubble starring John Travolta, Robert Reed, Diane Hyland, and Glynnis O'Connor. Travolta stars as Tod Lubitch, a real kid with a huge problem with his immune system, so he has to live in the plastic bubble. While most folks remember the imfamous Jerry Seinfeld episode with the kid in the plastic bubble (a.k.a. Bubble Boy), few have seen this mildly annoying sugar coated California treat. The film is filled with star power - with Robert Reed, best known as Mike Brady from the Brady Bunch as the Dad, Ralph Bellamy as the Immunologist, and Diana Hyland as the mother. As you might already know - she was John Travolta's lover at the time (she was 41, Travolta about 23). She died on March 27, 1977 in Travolta's arms after suffering through breast cancer. Diana Hyland was also the original mom and tv show wife of Dick Van Patten on the show Eight is Enough. Diana Hyland wins an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the movie was also nominated for an Emmy in Sound Editing and Outstanding Writing in a Special.

16. Brain That Wouldn't Die, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - The Brain That Wouldn't Die, (a.k.a. the Head that Wouldn't Die) a science fiction classic from 1962 and perhaps one of the worst films ever made. Which is why it is so AWESOME! Folks, this is Ed Wood, Plan Nine from Outer Space bad... a true horror movie in so many ways. A pompous windbag doctor named Bill Cortner gets in a car accident with his girlfriend. She loses her head (i.e. decapitated).. but Bill doesn't. Why - he's gonna find a sweet young girl's body and transplant it on the head of his girlfriend. Trust me - this movie is a real whopper and lots of fun.

19. Cheerios V8 TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Cheerios TV Commercial with a tie-in with V-8 juice. Say what? Cheerios and V-8, what marketing genius came up with this idea?

Son incase you still have a 40 year old box top hanging around - by all means, send it in. (then sing this refrain with Elvis - Return to Sender Address Unknown).

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents this classic coke commercial featuring the tune - Things Go Better with Coke. We think the group singing is a called the LimeLighters, although they sound a lot like The Mighty Wind.

McCann-Erickson is the advertising agency responsible for this gem.

I think this ad is from 1972.

26. Classic TV Commercials - Coke

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents this classic coke commercial featuring some school kids as they take a tour of Washington, D.C. - The Washington Monument, the constitution - w/ We the People preamble highlighted, and a special emphasis on the Lincoln Memorial - probably because it just a few years ago that the Civil Rights Era began. I think this was created in the mid to early 1970s, which is part of The Real Thing era. You also get a pretty corny song.

Yes - obviously before the days of sports drinks like Gatorade and other special drinks that claimed to return body fluids after sweating.

You can have your electrolytes - just give me an ice cold coke in the classic glass bottle.

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents a delightful Dario Argento horror classic from 1985 called Phenomena, or Creepers - which was the name of the USA release.

But oh my, not all is well at the school - there's a psychopathic killer on the loose. weirder still, Jennifer Connelly has a knack for telepathically communicating with insects. She does a great job of protecting herself by using this gift and getting the insects to get the bad guy instead of her. The story is filled with countless twists and turns - and I bet you won't know who the killer is till part 6, and boy what a surprise that is! Filled with lots of bloody FX and folks, this one is creepy, scary and just plain - out there. Imagine Buffalo Bill meets Mommie Dearest Meets Chuckie. Say no more.

42. Daffy Duck - Ducktators

Description: In this bizarre cartoon, Hitler, Musselini, and Tojo are all lampooned in this wartime era animation. (I think the US gov't funded part of it, if not all of it). WARNING: Racial stereotyping abounds in this weird duck tale from the days of yore. We present it as a piece of history.

44. Despotism or Democracy?

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Despotism. Here's a question for you - Despotism or Democracy? Which society do you live in? The film was originally created by Encyclopedia Britanica shortly after World War II (1945). We edited the original and trimmed down the total length to make it more enjoyable, and of course, more ironic - given the current world situation, with some oppressive regimes all over the place - and the potential for concern regarding the Patriot Act in the USA. As such - while the original content is quite dated - the metrics used to measure the freedom in a society, remain very valid. Check it out - i think you'll enjoy it.

45. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents the earliest film adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's literary classic, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This 1920 silent film stars the legendary John Barrymore (Drew Barrymore's grandfather) in the duel role of Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Simply put - his performance is amazing. Martha Mansfield stars as the innocent Millicent Carew, the lovely daughter of Sir George Carew, played by Brandon Hurst. You can also watch Hurst in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

46. 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?

The second clip in this 7 pack is called Kinky Fried Man and features Kinky Friedman as Ol Ben Lucas, the cowboy racounteur. The ditty goes like this - Ol Ben Lucas, had a lot of mucus coming right out of his nose. And now many years later - sweet Kinky Friedman is running for Governor of Texas. Only in America. Followed by the Frontier Gynecologist - a very silly comedy short. Given the passage of time - the comedy is even more weird than when it first aired.

Given the passage of time - this comedy walks the line between funny and chilling.

The sixth clip in this 7 pack is called Woman's Products. Lisa Allen (Joanna Cassady), a spokesperson for Clampex Pontoons describes the miraculous maze of womenhood. A very weird fake ad. Followed by a spoof on the Sears DieHard battery, that powers an electric execution. Morning Mist - in two natural fragrances. The Sperm Bank piece is a quite disturbing since science has come a long way and the premise of of deposit as comedy is just creepy.

50. Evel Knievel

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Evel Knievel starring George Hamilton as Evel Knievel and Sue Lyon as Linda Knievel. The movie originally aired as a made for TV movie in 1971 at the height of Evel Knievel's fame. While George Hamilton is an unlikely actor to play Evel, he does a decent job. And Sue Lyon, best known for her role as Lolita, the 16 year old vamp in Stanley Kubrick's classic take on the Vladmir Nabikoff novel - does a great job as Linda Knievel, wife and soulmate of the daredevil motorcycle hero. Much of the movie is filmed in Butte, Montana where Evel Knievel was born. Best of all - the film features some terrific archive footage of Evel Knievel, even the famed jump at Caesar's Palace, December 31, 1967 - which is one of the most spectacular wipeouts in his illustrious career as a daredevil motorcycle showman.

51. Fat Girls just wanna have fun

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - this weird clip about a tribe in the South Pacific archipelago where fat girls are viewed as really sexy. Weighing in at 275 pounds plus, some of these girls are really voluptuous. They eat tapioca roots while inside little cages to assist in making them plump. And they are all slated for the head man in the village - who happens to weigh just over 90 lbs. Lots of cool and colorful tribal wear - and a few topless shots of the girls. Nothing taudry - more in a National Geographic kind of nudity.

52. First Spaceship To Venus

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents this Science fiction classic - First Spaceship to Venus. This classic East German film - originally named Der Schweigende Stern (also named Raumschiff Venus antwortet nicht) was made in 1959 and the cinemamatic portrayal of computers and space travel is really a remarkable feat. The spaceship looks like a sleek Space Shuttle - looking more like a cool airplane than a rocketship. The computers are also very cool - and a must see for all geeks and techies.

53. Folgers TV Commercial w/ Mrs. Olson

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Folgers Coffee TV Commercial with the marital counselor extraordinaire - Mrs. Olson. Yes - Folgers is Mountain Grown, the richest kind of coffee - but there's no mention of Juan Valdez, who came later. There's trouble brewing between a wife and her butthead husband at the weber grill because darn it, she just can't make a decent cup of coffee. Call in the lawyers... oh no, a better idea - let's call in Mrs. Olson. This commercial is a classic!

54. Ford TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic long form Ford infommercial for 1960. And oh yes, what a year it was. Check out the rides coming out as new. Back when you could adjust your carb, no fuel injection... it was fun tto work on a car. Good times... good times.

We watch the Capuchin Friars dressed in red robes, and little children polishing the heads of dead brothers. Meanwhile, a plump lady says her Rosary. The whole place is just teaming with skulls and cross bones. When in Rome - do as the Romans do.... hmmm, I not so sure this is always good advice.

56. Frozen Frolics

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Frozen Frolics. This old cartoon has some terrific animation chops as a bunch of mice travel to the North Pole (though they do not meet Santa, just a polar bear who wants to eat them). I am not sure if this cartoon is related to Frisky Frolics, but you can check that one out for yourself.

57. 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.

58. Good for the Goose

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Good for the Goose, a short video clip of some women from Strausberg who are using a grinder to force feed some geese. Why you ask - well to make better Pate de Fois Gras of course. For those who are, shall we tres gauche - pate de fois gras is Goose liver pate, which sounds pretty gross, but is actually quite delicious. Anyway - I am sure the folks from P.E.T.A. (people for the ethical treatment of animals) are outraged by my lack of outrage, but i love pate de fois gras.... and escargot too. I think the snails are treated more ethically than say, live Maine lobsters - but I digress.

Here's more suggestions - Ouija Board episode from One Step Beyond, Beverly Hillbilies Trick or Treat, or take in some Casper the Friendly Ghost.,

60. Heinz Pickles TV Commercial

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a classic Heinz Pickle TV Commercial. Many years before the memorable Heinz slow ketchup commercials, they offered these ads for their pickles. This one features a lady who goes whacko when she gets a soggy pickle at a fine restaurant. While it would be easy to put in some kind of snappy presidential campaign comments between John Kerry (married to Teresa Heinz Kerry) vs. George Bush - i will leave that to others. Just enjoy the commercial and watch the old lady lose it in the restaurant. She should have just shove it and let it go. hahaha. Sorry, couldn't resist.

61. Horror Hotel - City of the Dead

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel is proud to present Horror Hotel, starring Christopher Lee, a legend in the horror genre.

Well guess what - Venetia Stevenson is Don Everly's ex-wife, like Phil & Don, Bye, Bye Love and Wake Up Little Susie. But wait - Don and Venetia's daughter married Axel Rose of Guns 'n Roses, so that makes her Axel's ex mother-in-law. (they got divorced). But I digress - Horror Hotel is a really creepy movie that is also funny at times because the acting is - shall we say - stiff.

As expected, Anthony Perkins plays the torrmented Allan, who just got released from the psycho ward and is going home even though the doctors are not sure he is fully well. It seems there was a tragic accident involving Allan's dad who dies in a fire that scars his sister Katherine (Julie Harris) and leaves Allan blinded.

This is one of my personal favorites, since we get Frank Random on vocals, an amazing performance and this weirdo named Pacho El Dropper drops in to fix the buffering. Frank Random just nails Shot in the Saddle.

73. Male Order

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Male Order, a cult classic film made in the 1940s - where this guy named Ted from Osh Kosh, Wisconsin orders a bunch of different women via mail order that arrive in cardboard boxes.

This little gem shows an old Japanese gym of shorts - where the corporate boys from Tokyo go to blow off some steam and shake things up. You will see all kinds of whacky vibrating and shaking machines that only a real mover and shaker might enjoy.

The fellow on the pedal bike is a riot too.

85. Oldsmobile Classic TV Commercial

This tv commercial is also a cartoon, animated by the greats at Fleischer Brothers studio, the same fellows who brought us Popeye, Betty Boop and Superman in the early days. The commercial is a long form presentation - probably initially released in theaters to play before the main feature. Parts of it are quite cheeky - especially for the day. There's a peeping tom character, and this line - you can go as far as you like with me, in my merry oldsmobile. Somehow i am not sure how one would measure mileage - ha!

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.

In this story, Dominic Denovio starts acting very weird and gets sick from dehydration. It turns out his identical twin brother fell in a deserted mine shaft and got hurt.

131. Outlaw, The

Description: Howard Hughes' production of The Outlaw is an interesting piece of film history for many reasons. While it was finished in 1940, it was dropped by 20th Century Fox due to critics' pans and the censors balking at Jane Russell's bulging cleavage. It seems Hughes Aircraft engineers even designed a special cantilevered bra to enhance Russell's attributes, long before her role in the Playtex cross your heart, lift and seperate bra commercials. (the gun control lobby today would be throwing fits, as Russell was packing a pair of 38s). In addition, famed director Howard Hawks was fired during production by Hughes, as there was some animosity between Russell and Hawks, and at the time, Russell was Howard Hughes' girlfriend.

This is the first film version of the Gaston Leroux novel, so please don't expect anyone will break into song. This is not the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical version released in 2004.

The guy in the film is pretty effeminate and one wonders what kind of homoerotic producer financed this short film - this is very strange content and we wondered who it was created for. We thought maybe it was for returning GIs or maybe a bizarre screen test for Hollywood, who knows.

Hey, have you heard the crazy new way.
To send a message today

Basically, this animation is REALLY weird - and features some real world scenes at a dentist's office with some kids.. who tells them the story of Winky the Watchman, who is in charge of making sure the pillars are taken care of. (The pillars are a set of teeth). Also has some unintended racial stereotyping foolishness - which just makes it even more creepy... as the Good 'uns are white folks... and the Bad 'uns are black... who seem to speak in the ridiculous Steppin Fetchit manner, often prevelent in entertainment made in this period. If you like Dental humor - make sure you search for Dentist, and find a bunch more gems. If you liked this one... you'll love Dr. Barre - the hockey team dentist.
