An IMDb Contributor's Gold Mine.
11 November 2004 | by Ddey65See all my reviews

Undoubtedly one of the best series of compilations to be arranged. Something Weird Video has loaded this series of videotapes and DVD's with footage of concession stand ads, celebrities pushing charities, holiday celebration shorts, local ads, live-staged horror performances, and occasionally movie trailers. And it's the frequent appearance of many celebrities that make it the IMDb contributor's gold mine that it truly is. People like Elizabeth Montgomery endorsing US Savings Bonds, Jack Lemmon, Jack Webb, James Coburn, and others pitching donations for the American Cancer Society. John Wayne and even the cast of MARRIED ..WITH CHILDREN seeking donations for the Will Rogers Foundation, and Jack Gilford urging kids to read. More often than not, I found myself taking notes, and sticking them in the video cases. I also found myself trying to figure out who's voices I hear. In some I easily recognized Daws Butler and Thurl Ravenscroft, but in others I couldn't figure out if I was listening to George Fenneman, Richard Deacon or Edward Platt.

At times it can be repetitive. The same ad for PIC mosquito repellent is shown on almost every single tape. That's a major problem because the space used for repeats of previous trailers keeps you wanting more. I would've loved to see some local ads for businesses surrounding the old Drive-Ins in Coram or Patchogue, New York, but even if they had them, someone else's local ads would be missing. Others look too old to be believed, like black & white photos and ads for movies made in the late-1960s and 1970's, and one ad showing a concession girl who looks like something out of the pre-war era. However, if you can look past these issues, you can still enjoy the series.

So, let's all go to the lobby... or let's not and just say we did.
