HUGHES PLANE CRASH (1946) B&W Sound144 viewsAlthough not nearly long enough (it is just a Universal news reel, after all) we can clearly see the damage to the houses as well as the plane. The depictions in "The Aviator" were no exaggeration; Hughes' plane really tore the rooftops off the houses! The fact that he survived this crash is yet another testament to Mr. Hughes tenacity and will to live life no matter what the cost. 07/11/1946
1948_oldsmobile_commercial_(320x240)_reel_4.wmv
OLDSMOBILE COMMERCIAL (FUTURAMIC CARS) (1948) B&W SOUND129 viewsTheater advertisements for the first all-new automobile to be placed on the market after World War II, the Oldsmobile Futuramic. Just check out these futuristic cars, Sorry no I-pod support on these models.
sunbeam_bread_8_(320x240).wmv
SUNBEAM BREAD COMMERCIAL REEL 8 (1950'S) B&W SOUND197 viewsAnother in a series of slightly creepy Sunbeam bread commercials. This one has a boy dressed up a cowboy. When the boy find they are out of Sunbeam bread, the narrator urges the boy to run to the store (complete with shopping cart!) and stock up. Where are this boys' parents? This is the 1950s, after all. Anyway, after the boy buys the bread, the narrator goes on about the nutritional value of the bland white bread and urges us to eat it "five times a day".
reg_kehoe_marimba_queens.wmv
REG KEHOE AND THE MARIMBA QUEENS162 viewsThere's something about this clip that is almost surreal--The grainy black and white images, the sameness of most of the performers (all quite thin and "brunette" as they said back then, with the exception of the marimba player at Reg's right hand) and most of all the music. The Marimba Queens and Reg Kehoe would be so surprised to see themselves on the Internet. They recorded about 20 musical pieces, a couple of comedy skits and a radio broadcast interview in the 40's. That kool kat playing the bass was none other than the one and only Frank DeNunzio Sr. of Hersey,Pa.He played his stand bass.

INDIAN LOVE BURLESQUE972 viewsAn older Stripper (who is indian because she wears a feather on her head) does some kind of rain/war dance and then takes off her bikini to reveal some very strange pasties on her breasts.

HOLLYWOOD BOOGIE162 viewsThelma White and Her All-Girl Orchestra, Leader of the early 1940'S all female band does more singing and dancing than conducting. She is a combo of Martha Raye and Betty Hutton. Flashy Boogie Woogie number.
gertie_the_dinosaur.wmv
GERTIE THE DINOSAUR (1914) B&W SILENT283 viewsThis is an odd little film featuring Winsor McCay--the creator of Gertie the Dinosaur and Little Nemo. And, just as in his first Little Nemo film, much of this film features Winsor McCay with his friends (all animators and lovers of animation) and only in the second half do you get to see Gertie. Ostensively, the film is about a bet Winsor made with his friends that he can make a dinosaur come to life--and he does in the form of a short cartoon featuring the lovable character "Gertie". While Gertie is very crude and simple compared to later color cartoons, there is still a lot of charm in the character and the film is a wonderful time capsule. Of great importance to Cinephiles and lovers of early animation.

CHERRY KNIGHT2517 viewsThis lady was one of the most successful models
and dancers of the 1940s and 1950s, with a national following. Her pictures are STILL being posted today on news groups and fan sites. The film is a fair example of her enduring appeal.
She is far from physically perfect, but it is her
earthy human quality that makes her timeless.
