Drive-In Movie Double Feature #26 (Sinister Cinema). [Category: Commercial]

Another fun collection of snack bar promos, featuring terrible-looking food and the Ubiquitous Family, who appears in almost every promo!


Highlights:


  • Dr. Pepper made several great animated beatnik jazz snack bar promos. Watch for one on this tape, featuring a pretty 60's blonde singing "Drink Dr. Pepper, Doc-Dr. Pepper, 'cause it never lets you down!" Crazy, man!
  • You can now enjoy your favorite form of movie entertainment, regardless of rain, thanks to a Drizzle Guard! This and the Bernz-O-Matic show us the one big weakness of the drive-in––bad weather––and the proprietors' pathetic attempts to deal with it.
  • After warning potential speaker thieves that a $50 reward is being offered for information leading to their arrest and conviction, we see a guy with a halo, crossed fingers behind his back, and a guilty expression turning in a broken speaker to the snack bar. Just what is that about??
  • Trailer for Pajama Party: No real-life teenagers were ever this perky. And why couldn't they let Buster Keaton, et. al. retire gracefully?

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
