2. And God Created Woman

Description: An God Created Woman features a young 22 year old actress named Brigitte Bardot, who had a smoldering passion and sexuality that virtually defined the genre of Teaser films. Bardot plays a young orphan who like to sun tan naked - so she has to marry someone, otherwise she will be shipped back to the orphanage. Ok - who really needs a plot. Also of interest - Director Roger Vadim was married to Bardot during this film, which made Bardot a huge star. Later, he went on to marry Jane Fonda, and directed the cult classic - Barberella, a comic strip adaptation of the space travelling vixen. He also has a love child, Christian Vadim, with French actress, Catherine Deneuve.

4. Bad Taste

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents a delightful horror classic from 1987 called Bad Taste, produced and directed by Peter Jackson, best known for his work on the JRR Tolkien movies, including the Lord of the Rings series and if fans get their wish, The Hobbit (though that looks bleak now). Well, long before Peter Jackson was a big cheese in film, he made this film with his school buddies over a four year period about a group of secret government agents in charge of keeping the world safe from invading aliens from distant galaxies. The budget for the film was next to nothing though it was a step up from a bunch of his previous efforts shot on 8mm film. Peter finally got a decent camera, a hand wound 16mm Bolex that was used for this movie and a little bit of money from a grant that helped him create more elaborate special effects.Bad Taste is an amazing movie - you can see the genius of Peter Jackson on display even as a young lad. He not only directed and produced this film, he even stars as young Derek, the courageous geek leader of the Alien Protection Squad who has to keep repacking his brains that have partially fallen out of his head.

5. Boy in the Plastic Bubble, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a cult classic made for tv movie called The Boy in the Plastic Bubble starring John Travolta, Robert Reed, Diane Hyland, and Glynnis O'Connor. Travolta stars as Tod Lubitch, a real kid with a huge problem with his immune system, so he has to live in the plastic bubble. While most folks remember the imfamous Jerry Seinfeld episode with the kid in the plastic bubble (a.k.a. Bubble Boy), few have seen this mildly annoying sugar coated California treat. The film is filled with star power - with Robert Reed, best known as Mike Brady from the Brady Bunch as the Dad, Ralph Bellamy as the Immunologist, and Diana Hyland as the mother. As you might already know - she was John Travolta's lover at the time (she was 41, Travolta about 23). She died on March 27, 1977 in Travolta's arms after suffering through breast cancer. Diana Hyland was also the original mom and tv show wife of Dick Van Patten on the show Eight is Enough. Diana Hyland wins an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the movie was also nominated for an Emmy in Sound Editing and Outstanding Writing in a Special.

6. Brain That Wouldn't Die, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - The Brain That Wouldn't Die, (a.k.a. the Head that Wouldn't Die) a science fiction classic from 1962 and perhaps one of the worst films ever made. Which is why it is so AWESOME! Folks, this is Ed Wood, Plan Nine from Outer space bad... a true horror movie in so many ways. A pompous windbag doctor named Bill Cortner gets in a car accident with his girlfriend. She loses her head (i.e. decapitated).. but Bill doesn't. Why - he's gonna find a sweet young girl's body and transplant it on the head of his girlfriend. Trust me - this movie is a real whopper and lots of fun.

8. Burns and Allen Show - Space Patrol Girls

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Classic TV channel proudly presents - The Burns and Allen Show - featuring George Burns and Gracie Allen.

9. Cheerios V8 TV Commercial

Son incase you still have a 40 year old box top hanging around - by all means, send it in. (then sing this refrain with Elvis - Return to Sender Address Unknown).

12. Evel Knievel

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Evel Knievel starring George Hamilton as Evel Knievel and Sue Lyon as Linda Knievel. The movie originally aired as a made for TV movie in 1971 at the height of Evel Knievel's fame. While George Hamilton is an unlikely actor to play Evel, he does a decent job. And Sue Lyon, best known for her role as Lolita, the 16 year old vamp in Stanley Kubrick's classic take on the Vladmir Nabikoff novel - does a great job as Linda Knievel, wife and soulmate of the daredevil motorcycle hero. Much of the movie is filmed in Butte, Montana where Evel Knievel was born. Best of all - the film features some terrific archive footage of Evel Knievel, even the famed jump at Caesar's Palace, December 31, 1967 - which is one of the most spectacular wipeouts in his illustrious career as a daredevil motorcycle showman.

This classic East German film - originally named Der Schweigende Stern (also named Raumschiff Venus antwortet nicht) was made in 1959 and the cinemamatic portrayal of computers and space travel is really a remarkable feat.

24. NASA Space Program (1965)

Description: LikeTelevision™ is proud to present - NASA space Program (1965). This short film tries to explain where all the money went - and from what i am hearing, whatever they spent for all this hardware was well worth it. Check out a fascinating section on weather satellites for meterology or for the D.O.D. If you love big clunky vacuum tube devices - you'll be in heaven. Pretty cool video, that gets better with time.
