Crashing the Movies (recorded off of Turner Classic Movies). [Category: Hollywood]

Newsreel clips are shown of all the weird and wacky stunts 30s people performed to get the newsreel cameras focused on them.

This, and most of the other stunts, leaves you with questions about the sanity of somebody who would think up such a thing. The narration, which could have been lame, is genuinely funny.

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