For the good stuff. This is am amazing look back in time. It is fun to see future stars in early jobs- Mike Farrell shilling for Schlitz beer was a surprise. Commercials from your youth ,like Frankenberry pack a lot of nostalgia and even older commercials like a tap dancing box of lucky strike cigarettes is a look into an older age. I finally understand the Chevrolet logo and will remember for a long time that the 1959 models will be available October 16! It also makes you think. There are products that have completely disappeared, anyone for a Hamm beer? But obviously for people around when those came out they remember them. What do the clothes and the approach of the commercials say about the times?
So much for the good. The bad is the quality of the ads. Some are quite good. Some are understandably faded with time but many from the early 70's are nearly unwatchable with blurred edges and barriers. Why? There is no explanation but many of these become very frustrating when your think "were they this bad when I was 8 years old?"
The second problem with this DVD is the complete and utter lack of organization and chapters. The commercials just start and run and that's it. Sometimes similar items are together, like several car commercials in a row, but other wise there is no rhyme or reason to how they are set up and while some progressive through time or products might be educational, these just thread together. Secondly there are no chapters just a single 6 hour track.Read more ›
