Vintage 1950s Commercials


Years after Avatar’s release, there’s one thing Steven (Ryan Gosling) just can’t get over.

Walter The Cat

Chevy Silverado commercial featuring Walter the Cat, who acts just like a dog.

And there’s a second one: Walter, the cat who acts like a dog, and his owner head out in a Chevy Silverado Trail Boss for some epic snow day adventures.

Yakuza turned pastor Tatsuya Shindo rates 10 yakuza scenes in movies and television for realism, such as “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” and “Avengers: Endgame.” Shindo joined the yakuza when he was 17 years old in 1988. He has seven convictions and has been to prison three times. He has been serving as a pastor since 2005.

Safe technician Charlie Santore, owner of Santore & Son Lock and Safe in Los Angeles, looks at ten safecracking scenes from popular TV shows and movies and rates them based on realism.

It’s a seedy neighborhood in Los Angeles, if you didn’t know.

I’ve always been fascinated with Foley art. Some objects, like paper bags, ice cubes, and pool balls, make an unexpected amount of noise. This can be a big problem on set, as any of these unwanted sounds can get in the way of dialogue. To ensure the sound team gets the best sound possible, the prop team will create silent versions of real products. Prop master Scott Reeder replaced loud pool balls with much quieter painted racquetballs for bar scenes. Meanwhile, Tim Schultz of Prop TRX uses vinyl and fabric to make quieter versions of grocery bags, sandwich bags, and cellophane. Reeder and Schultz show us how they found quiet alternatives to some of the loudest props out there.
