  1. I love Groucho's dancing! There's a move I've seen him do more than once (Chico did it too in one of the movies), where he sort of "patted himself down" -- see attached stills from You Bet Your Life, or even better, watch it here: https://youtu.be/U1xiUmzmuRg?t=1079 I was wondering if this is a "real" dance move, or if it was his own invention. For that matter, what about the rest of the dance? Is it all his invention, or was it an actual dance? Thanks in advance!
  2. I've directed some short films and videos, but never understood exactly what a director did (! -- I don't have any formal training) until I had this revelation a few years ago: the director's job is to make sure that everything in the movie is understandable to a viewer coming to it who has no knowledge of what it's about. I've seen a number of movies that had plot points that didn't make sense, or a character's motivation didn't make sense, or something that needed to be seen wasn't visible in the picture, or an actor voiced his lines unintelligibly -- things like that. To me it seems that
  3. I figured it was something like that. I searched "oomph girls" to see if there was a (very) similar photo. There wasn't one, but the ones you put up here are in the ballpark! Thanks.
  4. In the movie "DuBarry Was a Lady, " when Virginia O'Brien does her Salome number, she twice mentions "oomph girls," and when she does, she strikes a particular pose (see screenshot). I'm wondering what the significance of that pose is. Thanks.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. Photo #7 is Jetta Fondue. Sorry, I couldn't resist being facetious. Carry on.
  9. 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
  10. 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
