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.

COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING
While many film scholars may point to Gene Hackman's break-out role in 1967's BONNIE AND CLYDE as the cinematic vehicle that molded him into the kind of thespian that INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO host James Lipton salivates over, CONELRAD has discovered another role that no doubt made him the performer he is today: "Regional Field Officer" in 1966's COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING, a government civil defense film. Yes, the future Popeye Doyle once appeared in an atomic safety film.
