I didn't even know Charles Nelson Reilly did commercials. 😂😳

Clean and creamy? Sounds gross and greasy to me! I had to find out for myself who this is. It's Jaclyn Smith from Charlie's Angels.

Weird!!! I never knew there was a car like this.

Charles Nelson Reilly was a natural for commercials like this. :) That laugh between lines is so characteristic.

I'd never heard of that Volkswagen, either. I thought they all had the engine in the rear. So where was it?? Underneath, I suppose. I'd hate to have been a mechanic trying to access that. :shock:

I read in passing, maybe a YouTube comment, that it was in a compartment in the smaller trunk. It's pretty fascinating.

A kind of weird one. This makes me uncomfortable only because of the way the girl is acting. I don't think she's thrilled that she's having to do this commercial.

Yes, that is a strange one. :lol: The girl doesn't look too enthusiastic, that's for sure. Why does her acting (or lack thereof :D ) make you feel uncomfortable?

PS I had forgotten about Death Valley Days. I used to watch reruns of that sometimes. That show was kind of odd, too, because Ronald Reagan mostly only introduced the story. It was kind of an anthology series.

Her lack of enthusiasm makes me think she's not being treated well at all. She looks very sad.

I didn't know anything about it, except from the name it had to be a Western. I don't think it played on TVLand when I was growing up. Back then, I didn't have 24 hour access to the Internet, so TVLand was my only source of old shows. Nowadays those types of channels really like to rerun Gunsmoke and Bonanza.

Edit: YouTube has only been around since 2005, hard to believe. TVLand would have been it for me, anyway, since I know of no other site where you could watch old shows for free. (or was there?)

No, don't know of any others. Thank goodness for YouTube! As for TV, Nick at Nite used to be a good one for old shows at one time.
