on second thought... party at my house with this gem... there is something about 70's TV movies... they are lessons for filmmakers in how to keep your audience's attention for 70 minutes...

They have alot of cool stuff including movie intermission and drive in commercials, some pretty cool stuff.

These old movie commercials kept me on the edge of my seat in a way that the ones today just can't. Maybe it's from sensory overload/overstimulation, but the stuff today just doesn't stack up...I vaguely remember being 4 yrs. old and seeing the commercial for "Women in Chains." Scared me silly...

And of course, there was James Brolin's later cinematic masterpiece "The Car." Riveting stuff...:-)

What time is the party? I have that Ida Lupino movie on VHS. I have TWO Ida Lupino womens prison films.

I know about MH2, in fact my friend who works for Sony gave me an advance disc check copy. They look great and it's as funny as I remember. Now all I need is for one of my neighbors to watch so I can watch it through their windows to recreate my childhood MH2 experience.

Wow, The 70s were racier than I thought; I don't think I've ever been fresh enough to "take in Chinatown".... !
