  2. Short film collection

    I just wanted to let you know about Fran Blanche (https://www.youtube.com/c/FranBlanche). She produces high quality transfers of her reel-to-reel short film collection which you can see on her YouTube channel. If you're on the lookout for more shorts, she might be a good source for material.

  3. Drawing With Gorbit

    This is some weird European short where a guy who kinda resembles Albert Einstein goes on a search for his magical pencil so that he can draw such fascinating things such as a two-headed tiger, a fish with human legs, and a penguin with a human butt.
    Did I mention that he can fly and that he seeks help from a witch to help him find his pencil and as payment he will give her more children's souls to each (the witch tells him not to forget the dipping sauce...ESPECIALLY honey mustard dipping sauce)

    The video is online at Youtube. …

  4. Million Dollar Nickel (1952)

    From MGM, a great short about how a nickel pays for a stamp so an immigrant can send letters back home. Features little cameos from Ricardo Montalban and Leslie Caron speaking in their native tongues.

  5. Big Mouth Goes to the Dentist

    https://youtu.be/r_suh13HeiI
    A 1979 short film by Cornet! This popped up earlier and I had to see if they have done it yet, and they have yet to! It is perfect for them!

  6. A Body to Die For: The Aaron Henry Story

    A half hour episode from the 90's HBO 'Lifestories' series, enjoyed (and adored) by countless students in health class.

    Sit back and relax as Ben Affleck takes you through the journey of star football player to roid-raging meat man.

  7. Dinosaurs: The Terrible Lizards

    I suggest Dinosaurs: The Terrible Lizards. It's an educational stop motion animated short first filmed in the seventies and then revised in the eighties, so there's two versions to choose from.. It was produced by Wah Chang whose work has already been featured in Jack the Giant Killer and Dinosaurus! The animation ranges from decent to bad and even the revised edition contains information that was known to be incorrect decades before the seventies.

  8. Captain America (15 part serial)

    Let me set the Stage. It’s the mid 1940’s, WWII is raging, and there’s this publication group called Timely Comics. It’s still decades away before they adopt a more “Marvel-ous” name, but for now they have this new character they call Captain America who they think will make waves. Timely wants to make a serial for Cap, Republic has made tons of serials, what could go wrong?

    Hilariously, Republic threw out literally everything about Captain America for the serial. Sure he mostly has his costume, but this is not Steve Rogers the super soldier fighting the Nazis with the help…

  11. The Attitude Factor (1981)

    A school bus safety film about the attitudes of bus drivers focuses most of its story on a driver named Barbara Blackstone. It begins with Barbara, a lady with a positive attitude, winning an award for "best all-around driver"; by the end, she is worn down by the mother of a special needs child who constantly complains she's late. Barbara's meltdown to misery is a spectacle to behold and great material for riffing. The short is on YouTube.

  12. Traveling vacations short

    This short from the 50s is about a man who ruins a ladies painting at the beach, then stalks her , accidentally destroys her fathers car and tows them in their travel trailer all over the country. The girl hates him the entire time. It’s done in that “ain’t it neat” 50s style. And it is ripe for destruction.

  13. The Daylight Zone (1986)

    Christian propaganda film filled with obvious anachronisms. Of course, painful dialogue ensues.

  15. Caught Mapping.

    1940s movie about Cartography by Chevrolet. A "Jam Handy" production. I kid you not. That's the last slide.

    8 and one half minutes of too-fast animation, terrible road conditions, watching people drive around in 1940s Batman's car all to make maps that only have a passing connection to reality.

    Also, you can find it in its entirety here: https://www.planetizen.com/node/57278

  16. 1999 house of tomorrow

    This short presented by the philco ford corporation gives a decidedly dark vision of a futuristic house in the year 1999ad where the computer is in charge of the entire household. It features mandatory exercise and body scans, and the home teaching program telling 8 yr old billy he flunked. It features a young Wink Martindale and is pure nightmare fuel.

  19. Speedy Cutover service

    The cheesy 70s music, the suspense from a heist movie...what is it? A bond film? No its the speedy cutover team, switching from old technology to new. Watch the action as the specially sharpened cutters slice through cables at breakneck pace. Watch the supervisor wipe sweat from his brow in suspence. Will they cut all the cables correctly? Will any emergency calls not be able to go through? Find out!

  20. Liebe 2002

    It's a mockumentary from East Germany, the communistic part of it about how they imagined love to work in the year 2002.

    It's incredibly cheesy tongue in cheek.

    It has a weird futuristic visions with ballet dancers from the future, robots and computers contrasted by the 1970s and the olden days.

    It's been produced by DEFA and a copy can be found on their Youtube channel:
