  1. I don't have the answer to this mystery, but I would like to offer hope that your memories of it aren't mass hypnosis: I read a sci-fi/horror story in 1968 that really captured my imagination. I searched for it on and off over the years, and last year found mention of it in a chat room. Other people have been looking for it too! It's similar to Ray Bradbury's Fever Dream -- in fact, it may well have been inspired by it, but it's definitely NOT Fever Dream. Anyway, through a series of odd twists and turns, I now have a scan of the story from the magazine in which it was published. My point
  2. I once saw a short film (5-10 minutes?) about a young woman who brings her boyfriend home to meet her parents for the first time, and we can hear all their thoughts in voiceover in between their actual spoken words. It was, as you may have already guessed, a comedy. Can't tell you much more, except I saw it perhaps in the '80s on TV -- maybe PBS? Pretty sure it was in color. I'd say it was likely made in the '70s or early '80s. It seemed to be low-budget -- I don't think there were any well-known actors in it.
  3. The idea behind the commercial was that Mom doesn't want regular coffee since she's already jittery enough because her kids' rock band is rehearsing in the house! So she'd rather have decaf. There were a few guys playing instruments and a girl singing Heavy heavy You are very heavy Baby baby Oh please Must've been from the late '60s-early '70s. Anyone remember that? Know where I can see it again? I looked on Youtube but couldn't find it. Thanks!
  4. Photo #7 is Jetta Fondue. Sorry, I couldn't resist being facetious. Carry on.
  5. I saw just one scene of an old sitcom on TV a few years ago (it was at least three years ago). I don't remember what show the clip was on. The sitcom was in black and white, never saw it before, didn't recognize the actors. The scene went like this: There's a married couple (perhaps in their thirties) who have let their Uncle Jack (I'll call him Jack because I don't remember the character's name) live in an upstairs room of their house, apparently for some time, perhaps a few years. One day Uncle Jack moves out. After he's gone, the wife says to her husband, "I'm sorry to see him go. I real
  6. I know that the music attached to this post is the theme of a '50s sci-fi movie, but I don't remember which one. Does anyone here know what movie this is from? It was used as the theme song to the Creature Features show in New York in the '60s. Creature Features music.mp3
  7. Anyone remember a sci-fi film with a guy wearing a dark suit and sunglasses, and then he takes off the sunglasses and his eyes are all white -- no pupils, no irises? That's about all I remember of it. I think he was outdoors when he did this. Seem to remember he was heavyset. Sorry I don't have more clues! I saw it on one of those "creature features" or "thriller" shows when I was a kid. Thanks in advance.
  8. Around 1973 I there was a show on PBS called the International Animation Festival. It was hosted by Jean Marsh, and featured animated films from around the globe. There was a short film that I believe was a promo film for the U.S. Post Office. IIRC, it had shots of various things that didn't necessarily relate to the Post Office -- I seem to remember that one shot was of molten metal being poured into a mold. There may have been another shot taken aboard a ship at sea -- things like that. I think the shots may have been hand-colored. On the soundtrack was an instrumental calypso/lati

  10. I found it! Seven Golden Men, it's called in English. That's definitely the movie. Thank you very much, guys!
  11. Could be King Solomon's Mines, shutoo. I see there are several film adaptations. I'd have to check them out. Thanks, guys!
  12. There was a movie that had, I think, American or English explorers meeting a primitive culture -- maybe it was in Africa or somewhere -- and they were about to be killed by the natives, but the explorers knew that a solar eclipse was starting, and they told the natives that they controlled it! Something like that. Anyone know what movie this is?
