TITLE: LI'L ABNER
DIRECTOR: Melvin Frank
Comedy ensues when the government decides to place an atomic test site in the town of Dogpatch, USA. Adapted from the Broadway musical based on Al Capp's popular comic strip. The film's surreal Technicolor charms age better than its satire. Watch for standout performances by Julie Newmar as Stupifyin' Jones and Stella Stevens as Appassionata Von Climax.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
This infamous red scare film was put together from television newsreel footage of the May 1960 House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) hearings in San Francisco, its attendant student protests, and the riotous police action (fire hoses used on City Hall protesters) that followed.
