Merry Christmas From 1939 And Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog

Last year, creator of cool radio shows and film scholar Aaron Neathery posted a great Eddie Cantor tune, The Only Thing I Want For Christmas, on The Third Banana blog last year. I like it a lot and, being way too damn lazy to write a blog, cribbed Eddie's 1939 Yuletide offering for today's Merry Christmas blog entry.

More Cheesy Christmas Commercials

Courtesy of RetroJunk.com, here are some truly cheesy Christmas commercials for reprehensible and diabetes-inducing products. I feel guilty enough to flee to the gym with turbo-jets on my ass after just one viewing of these ads!

Cheesy Christmas Commercials

Until I find a 1976 TV commercial in which reggae icon Peter Tosh says "friends, here's a wonderful Christmas gift for anyone who smokes herb" (giving new meaning to the phrase "it's TOASTED"), this Christmas chestnut from Your Hit Parade will have to do!

Psychotronic Paul's Favorite Technicolor Musical Sequence Ever

I saw this, believe it or not, for the first time last night at San Francisco's fabulous Castro Theatre, as part of their excellent Samuel Goldwyn retrospective.

Also thought I had seen every bizarre musical production number ever committed to film in 1928-1934. Well, think again!



The final 20 minutes of Kid Millions had me sitting with gaping-mouthed astonishment, marveling at the sheer quantity and variety of WTF moments!
