1950s

A pretty useless video I put together, consisting of excerpts from 1950s daytime commercials with the sound removed, in order to demonstrate that such ads can be used in video projects. However, this video itself cannot be used for such video due to heavy compression. The footage is drawn from my section "Classic TV Commercials uploaded by Emperor". I hope this isn't the worst thing ever uploaded. The footage is presented "straight".

A real curiosity in the Buster Keaton canon: “The Misadventures of Buster Keaton” was a theatrical film cobbled together from episodes of “Life with Buster Keaton,” a very-early ‘50s US TV program.

The survivor reveals the horrible truth: there is no way to get out of the caves. Or is there a way? You can find more information regarding this film on its IMDb page.

Swamp Women, produced in 1955, was the first film ever directed by Roger Corman. The film follows undercover police officer Lee Hampton after she infiltrates a prison, befriends three female convicts, and helps them all escape. In reality, this planned escape is part of a larger plot to find a diamond stash hidden deep within the swamps of Louisiana. This is a fairly poor quality copy of the movie, with film splicing of a different print evident from 1:00:30 to 1:00:59 This film is in the public domain.
