    Working on organizing the collection of '30s, '40s, and '50s short films I have on my computer, and thought I'd share a few shots from them with the lounge - shots that show off clothing, styles, and the general environment. I think these shorts are a good way of seeing the average day-to-day styles and such, because of their lower budgets not allowing for all the big costuming work and such.

    These shots come from "Hired!," a 1940 short produced by the Jam Handy Company for Chevrolet, as a training tool for dealers.

    Next up: "The Trip," a sadly all-too-brief color (!) Chevrolet commercial from 1939. Not as clear as some of the others, but the color is really nifty:

    As I was looking at the pictures from "Hired," all I could think of was "I wonder if he got one of the guy with the hanky on his head?" Yep!

    Great screen caps!
     
  5. Very nice caps. Thanks!

    Thanks! Here are a couple more.

    First up, "Trader Thorne," from the early/mid '50s, a Ford dealer training short starring none other than Hugh Beaumont (!).

    And a few from the infamous "A Case of Spring Fever," a 1940 short where a small demon named "Coily" torments a man who wishes there were no springs (seriously). How about that plaid belted-back jacket?

    I love those clothes pics!

    There are some fine looking fedoras there, especially the one in "The Trip."

    Great golf-wear too.

    OK, Atomic, come clean! You're an MST3K fan, aren't you?

    lol

    LOL, well, yes. Yes, I am.

    NO SPRINGS!
     
  12. Doh!

    Doh! One Too Many

    Too bad Hugh Beaumont never wore fedoras on "Leave It to Beaver" -- he looks good in 'em!
     
  13. Oh, YOU noticed it, too? *lol*

    He MUST be!
     
  14. You know, I think I'm gonna like it around here...
