Re: Joke-a-Day

I can't really read that text without saving it and blowing it up. Either I'm really old or newspapers were huge in 1906. I've found that doing a right click/open in a new tab will usually enlarge those kinds of images (at least on a Mac using Chrome). Yeah, but my eyes still can't make it out with...

What kind of question is that, anyway? :?:

:lol: That's a charming one. And I like those cool clouds just kind of hanging out up there. I didn't notice them much before, but you're right. Here's a color one of Little Nemo In Slumberland. I can't really read that text without saving it and blowing it up. Either I'm really old or newspapers w...

Has your child ever said anything mind blowing when they were very young? I always find that stuff interesting, and it gives you a little glimpse about the way they think.
That machine would be more like a DNA player.

Re: Hellzapoppin' (1941)

I don't know that I had seen any scenes from it before, so it's hard to say if any particular scenes are famous. I think it was influential as a whole, though, for its fourth-wall-breaking techniques and those gags that can be recognized from later Looney Tunes. The music and dance group shown in th...

Hellzapoppin' (1941)

Watched this the other day. A curious film. On one level it functions as a typical early-Forties musical comedy, but the framing story (which keeps intruding) is more of a self-aware comedy that subverts the Hollywood film genre in various ways. In the first few minutes it almost resembles the Monke...
