Vaudeville Deluxe

http://library.sps.edu/06archives/sesquicentennial/Exhibit1/images/71Vaudeville.jpg

Vaudeville was an American art form that flourished on stages throughout the United States and Canada, with excursions into foreign lands, in the latter part of the 19th Century and the much of the first half of the 20th.  It consisted of varied unrelated acts on a common bill.  Those acts could range from singers, dancers and comedians; to animal acts, jugglers, and sword swallowers, with many, many others in between.  “Big Time” Vaudeville could be seen in theaters that seated thousands.  It could also be seen on bills in smaller and  smaller venues down to  ” Opera Houses” and Granges in little towns dotting the country. There has a been a resurgence of interest in Vaudeville, or what is now called NeoVaudeville, by young performers who think there is more to performing than singing on American Idol.  This film program consists of films from 1925 to 1940.  The earliest is a sound test film featuring Gus Visser and his Singing Duck.  The newest is Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers from the 1941 film Hellzapoppin.  In between are rope skippers, roller skaters, contortionists, Hawaiian musicans, hillbillies, acrobats, CHAZ CHASE who eats anything,  W. C. Fields‘ juggling act, and of course, singers, dancers and comedians.  Trav S D. , performer, and author of  No Applause–Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous felt bereft that the thousands who would have benefited from it hadn’t shown up for the screening he arranged in New York City. Stephen Parr of Oddball Film called it the very best of all of my shows. Napoleon once commented that people like to be astounded.  Vaudeville Deluxe will delight and astound you!

Bad Bugs Bunny Bad Bugs Bunny The truth about American history revealed in fabulous Warner Brothers cartoons! It is all here, the racism, sexism and violence.

http://www.drunkard.com/issues/52/images/fields-juggling.jpg

Vaudeville Deluxe Napoleon commented that people want to be astounded.  Here’s your chance.  Vaudeville Deluxe is comprised of some of the most astounding and entertaining Vaudeville acts ever put on film.  All from the the golden age of Vaudeville in the Twenties and Thirties.  From the famous such as W. C. Fields to the obscure such as Bernice and Emily.  All exquisite entertainers from a time when entertainment meant more than just singing on American Idol.

Ruby Keeler The Effect of Dada & Surrealism on Hollywood Cinema in the 1930s Hollywood took Dada and Surrealism and cheerfully dumped them into American movies with no explanation or framing devices in the early 1930s. This program shows great examples of films that jumped on the Dada and Surrealism bandwagon to delight and mystify viewers reeling from the Great Depression.

http://www.brightlightsfilm.com/63/63_images/63pcs_macdonaldchevalier.jpg Jeanette MacDonald In Her Undies is comprised of two exquisite Pre-Code Hollywood musical feature films starring singing star Jeanette MacDonald.   They are Monte Carlo (1930) directed by Ernst Lubitsch and Love Me Tonight (1932) directed by Rouben Mamoulan.  They feature not just lovely Jeanette sans clothes, but also great songs by Richard Whiting (Monte Carloe) and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart  (Love Me Tonigh). Also  sparkling direction, incandescent camera work, clever writing, and the leading men Jack Buchanan and Maurice Chevalier.  The supporting players include Zasu Pitts, Myrna Loy, Charlie Ruggles, and Charles Butterworth.

Billy Holiday From First To LAst Billie Holliday: First to Last The one and only Lady Day in film appearances 1935-1957. Includes the first half hour of the feature film New Orleans made in 1947 in which he plays a maid and also sings with Louis Armstrong. The program concludes with the second half of  “The Sound of Jazz” television show from 1957 which features the greatest assemblage of jazz talent ever assembled before a camera.  It features Billie singing with Lester Young.  Both would be dead within two years.   Total running time 85 minutes.

http://recollectionbooks.com/bleed/images/BB/commie2.jpg Kill a Commie For Christ Can we learn from the past?  Can we have fun doing it?  A past where  good was good, evil was evil, Commies were bad and the United States was good? Was it that long ago? Was there a time when thoughtful people could really believe in Killing Commies for Christ? Here it all is in a roller coaster ride of US Gov films, newsreels, one Infomercial, and a musical interlude.

Oscar Winners (With some just Very Deserving Nominees) Cartoons Great Cartoons, all but one with Great Color, from 1934 to 1993.  Book this show for a rare chance to see these rare classics on film as they were all first presented.

The Dark Side Of Dr. Seuss The Dark Side of Dr. Seuss This could be called “What did you do in the war, Doc?”   For most of his long career Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss) wrote hugely popular children’s books.  Early in his career he wrote for humor magazines and made money in advertising. For a brief time in the 1940s he was in the US Army making gung ho propaganda and army training films.  Is there a correlation between attracting young readers and influencing the minds of adults?   With this program you can examine Dr. Seuss’ adult oriented work and make your own decision.

The Birth of Betty Boop The Birth of Betty Boop Betty Boop was a huge star in the early thirties with a whole line of tie-in products and a nationally syndicated comic strip. By 1939, her popularity had waned and the production of her cartoons was stopped. In the 1960’s she was rediscovered by a new generation and became more popular than ever.  This program features her first cartoon appearances and shows her cinematic evolution from dog to woman.

The Age of Oil: Gasoline in the Twentieth Century

Films made by the Petroleum Industry, films made by Hollywood, and one film made by a Marxist.  It all combines to take a ride through a force in our existance that is much bigger than we can easily understand. http://www.etftrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/21oil-span-600.jpg Hillbillies In Hollywood Hillbillies in HollywoodAlternate title: “The Incredibly Strange Country, Western, and Rockabilly Film Show”. Over three hours of great music from 1927 to 1964, from the justly famous (Bob Wills, Jimmie Rogers, Spike Jones)to the unjustly forgotten (Hank Fort, Smoky Rogers, the Korn Kobblers), and many, many others.

Strange and Vicious War Cartoons Cartoons from a time when war was defined clearly as good versus evil and a victory came.  Can we learn anything from those days?  Now we seem to have what Orwell warned us against, eternal war.

The Open Road The Open Road What is the myth and reality of America’s long love affair with the automobile?  This program contains both and it’s only a ninety minute ride at 36 feet per second. The myth includes carefree vacations, the joy of hitch hiking, long haul trucker warriors of the road, carefree bikers on their hogs, leaving the driving to Greyhound, and more.  The reality includes being busted for drunk driving, becoming one of the fifty thousand  a year who die in a horrible wreck, ending up a quadriplegic after a ride on a Harley, and road rage turning a mild mannered milquetoast into a vengeful maniac.

Good Intentions:   Scare Films American Teenagers Laughed At

Six classic educational films 1950-1974 showing the worries of the adults in American society and their mis-guided attempts to try and make teenagers see things their way. The timeless topics of teen angst, drinking, driving, drugs and delinquency.  A lot of fun for those who survived and can look back.

 

Vintage lingerie magazine ad

Ooh La La A History of Lingerie

A historic and fun look at women in their undies!  A nice variety of changing styles of what was usually not seen in daylight underneath modest dresses.  Very rare films from 1910 to 1954 with appropriate naughty music.

 


Tex Avery Jazz, Sex, and War Cartoons After my first tour of Europe in 1995 with Bad Bugs Bunny, I was asked to come back in 1996 with more animation programs. Jack Stevenson suggested I do a “Sex, Jazz and War” cartoon show. I was mystified how these topics would go together, but trusted Jack that there would be bookings for such a program. He was right

Hobo, You Can’t Ride That TrainA look into a fascinating subject few are personally privy to.  Mr. Nyback rode freight trains across the United States while in college and has long been interested in freight train riding and the people that do it.  These rare films are a primer into a very little understood subject. The Blaxploitation Cartoon SpecialExtremely rare cartoons from 1916 to 1943 offer an unvarnished look at how black people were portrayed during what is called “the golden age of animation”.  They include work by some of the most famous cartoonists of all time. All of them are now suppressed.

 

Creepy  characters with candles on their heads  are chanting WANNA BE A MEMBER at Bimbo in Bimbos initiation cartoon  from Fleisher Brothers Studios

Subversive Animation A fast-paced roundup of wildly subversive animated shorts from cartoon history, many censored, banned and rare. Featured shorts include: screw the two party system with “Betty Boop for President”, drug happy dwarves in “The Sunshine Makers”, off the police with Woody Woodpecker in “The Screw Driver”, fighting prohibition with “Mickey’s Whoopee Party” and pro-commie, anarchist shorts, revolts against royalty and more.

 

F@!k Mickey Mouse Compare To Disney™ (aka F@!k Mickey Mouse) Is it true? Is there a segment of the population that believes Walt Disney invented animation? This programs examines how the other Hollywood animation studios reacted to the Disney juggernaut in the 1930’s and 1940’s.   I focus on three tactics by his competition:  Rip him off, beat him to the punch, or make vicious fun of him.

Reviews: New York Daily News


The Mormon Church Explains It All For You The first film made by the Mormon Church that I had ever saw knocked me over. It was called “For Time or Eternity”. It was so skillfully made and had such wacky ideas. It was a film like no other I had seen. Reviews:New York Native

Quick Commercial Defining the 1970’s Through Classic Commercials From the ridiculous to the sublime.  Thank God you won’t be suckered into buying a lot of these products, since many of them are no longer on the market. For the others, this is warning to enjoy the ads, but don’t buy the product — especially Rely Tampons which were pulled after killing many women with toxic shock syndrome.

Lindy Hop and Jumpin' Jazz and Jitterbug  
The Lindy Hop dance came out of Harlem in the late Twenties
and people have been enjoying it ever since. These films
from 1938-1954 show it at its best combining great dancing
with great jazz.

If as Norman Douglas wrote, “You can tell the ideals of a nation by its advertisements,” what are we?  It is easier and more entertaining to judge in hindsight.  How about by looking at the 80’s? Over 100 classic commercials in a fast moving show covering dozens of topics. A safely voyeuristic look into the near past that can help us understand how we got to where we are today.  Don’t worry though, many of these products no longer exist so you won’t be compelled to go right out and buy buy buy to support our consumer driven economy.

The Mormon Church Explains It All To You, a Dennis Nyback Film Show, has been a hit in most of the major cities in the United States.  It will be shown once this year in Portland.  That screening will be at the Faux Museum.  The program features three complete short films, and once excerpt, made by The Mormon Church in Salt Lake City between 1964 and 1974.  All were produced by Wetzel O. Whitaker.  The films defy classification.  When the program played at the Olympia Film Festival they wrote:  “The French say that American filmmakers have never really embraced the auteur theory – but obviously they have never seen the films of Wetzel O. Whitaker! So allow us to share with you the magic of this unsung genius of Mormon educational filmmaking! Outrageous camp meets brutal realism in these three short films that confront the moral issues facing teens in a world teeming with hideous fashion, bad haircuts and campus conflict.”   I personally think that doesn’t tell the half of their jaw dropping amazing greatness.  These films were not meant for teens.  They were meant to be seen by young adults who were in need of the sort of guidance only motion pictures could provide.  This program will be screened in 16mm, not digitally.

The films included are “You Make the Difference” (1974), the story of  young churchgoers tempted by X-rated movies (excerpt); and the complete films; “Man’s Search for Happiness” (1964), screened at the Mormon Pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair;  “How Do I Love Thee?” (1965), about a couple of college roommates, good girl Jan and bad girl Penny, who each have to deal with the urge to go “all the way”; and “For Time or Eternity?” (1969), in which a young women on her pre-mortal planet somewhere in the Universe is given a chance to see what her life on earth might include.

What:  The Mormon Church Explains It All to You
Where:  The Faux Museum  139 NW 2nd Avenue  (2nd and Davis)
When:  Saturday October 13 at 8:00pm
How Much:  $8

Wetzel O. Whitaker  Diractor and/or of all the films in the program.
Latter-day Saint. Born 30 September 1908, Heber City, Utah. Died 1 November 1985, Murray, Utah. Birthname: Wetzel Orson Whitaker. Also known as: Judge Whitaker; “Judge” Whitaker; Wetzel O. Whitaker; Wetzel Whitaker; Wetzel Orson “Judge” Whitaker; Wetzel “Judge” Whitaker; Wetzel Judge Whitaker. Although his name is largely unknown today, Wetzel O. Whitaker was one of the most influential figures in the history of Latter-day Saint filmmaker. He was the producer and director of many of the earliest films produced by the Church and subsequently shown on film and video to generations of young Latter-day Saints in seminary, Sunday School and other forums. Producer and/or director of such classics as: Up in Smoke! (1959); Windows of Heaven (1963); Measure of a Man (1962); Worth Waiting For (1962); Never a Bride (1969); Johnny Lingo (1969); How Do I Love Thee? (1970); For Time Or Eternity (1970); The Lost Manuscript (1974); Cipher In The Snow (1973). Interestingly enough, many of these films were strictly values-oriented, and made no mention of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which produced them. Two of Whitaker’s films (“Johnny Lingo” and “Cipher in the Snow”) are available on video as part of the “BYU Classics” series, and on DVD as part of the “LDS Film Classics” series.

Whitaker and Scott Whitaker, during the period that the Whitakers ran the BYU motion picture department. Story consultant for the classic BYU-made Church video “The Mailbox” (1977). She wrote for the TV series “Death Valley Days”, “Wagon Train”, and “The Wonderful World of Disney.” She later started writing under the name of Claire Whitaker working on well-known productions such as “The Waltons” (she was story editor), “Falcon Crest”, “Promised Land”, “Baywatch”, “Eight is Enough” and “Touched by an Angel,” among others.
