One of my favorite things to do on occasion is watch historic documentaries. Not documentaries about history so much as ones that were filmed years and years ago. (Like, say, those old science films you used to watch in school… or some of us did.)
Imagine my delight when I discovered Pete Smith. A filmmaker, Smith’s heyday was between 1931-1955 when he made a bunch of short films for MGM. These were originally intended as fillers between movies but became so popular that moviegoers would soon come to see bad films just to get a look at what Pete was doing.
So check out a few of these movies. Goofy but fun, nonetheless.
