And the show is an absolute scream! Hans Conried shines as the stoic, but not unflappable host. In one show, Conried sardonically compares his hosting duties on a silent film show to "doing a show live from Forest Lawn cemetary." The best skits include "Dinky Dunston, Boy Cheerleader" (Lon Chaney's Hunchback of Notre Dame is endowed with Dudley Do-Right's voice) and a terrific re-editing of Fritz Lang's "M" (Peter Lorre tries to give up smoking. It's topical treatment of the Big Tobacco industry was decades ahead of its time.)
If you're tired of sitcom mediocrity full of brainless idiocy, phony families, hackneyed plots and stupid pratfalls, you DESERVE this series on DVD!!! There has been no series like "Fractured Flickers" before or since!
If you watch all of the shows back-to-back, then it does get a little exhausting trying to absorb all of the one-liners and use of repeat footage. Remember, this show was on once a week and that's how they hoped it would be watched!
I give the shows five stars because I appreciate the hard work that goes into creating a show like this. Kudos to Bill Scott, Paul Frees, the fabulous June Foray, Hans..call me Hansel..Read more ›
