I'm looking for sites related to American popular culture from the early 20th century: books, films, radio, magazines, music, dance, comic strips, celebrities — you name it. I'm particularly interested on the period between the wars, but open to great stuff from before (and during) World War I, as well. Little Nemo, Keystone Kops, the Lindy Hop, Enrico Caruso, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Flash Gordon, Alice blue, Teddy bears, etc. These are all the sorts of things I'm after, especially as they're represented on the web. Bonus points for sites with RSS feeds. [more inside]

I've just started watching Six Feet Under on Bravo, where it's being syndicated. I was skeptical at first, because I knew the show would have to be edited for content, but I was halfway into the first episode before I even noticed any changes (at least language-wise). My question: How do they do it so well? [more inside]
Friend of mine is looking to track down the name of a movie. The dialogue is in English, French and Japanese. Most of the story is set in post-WWII Japan. It is about a French engineer who is working there. He is developping a relationship with a Japanese woman who runs a kimono store, but his old flame flies in from France and hijinks ensue. No it's not "Hiroshima, mon amour". As always there is [more inside]
What's up with that annoying fast-motion digital effect that's been popping up in movies the past few years? I think it's supposed to make things look scary, but it really has the effect of making everything look like a bad Benny Hill comedy. Is this something that directors do to their movies on purpose, or is it a byproduct of some sort of digital processing? [more inside]

When I was about ten when I saw this movie about a family trapped in a house. Their windows and doors were bricked in and they could not get out. Whenever they turned the television on a strange logo appeared. I think I remember the mother accusing the father of having done something to cause this situation. The thing that sticks in my mind was a scene towards the end of the movie where tons of black goo comes down the chimney and out of the fireplace. [more inside]

A friend is trying to remember the name of a movie she saw on Bravo in the mid-to-late 90s. She remembers it as being either in French or Italian, with the plot as follows: "it's about this couple that gets married and they're not meant to be together or something like that,so they're never in the same room together. if the husband walked into the living room the wife was in the kitchen, if the wife was on the stairs the husband was in the basement... it was really weird. they kept disappearing." If anyone can remember it, the hivemind can!
A few months ago, there was news that Kevin Smith would release a director's commentary early, so fans of Clerks 2 could rewatch the movie in a theater with an iPod. Clerks 2 has come and gone from my local theater but I'm still wondering if this audio ever came out, because I'd love to hear it and watch the movie again (have to catch it at the $1 theater now). Anyone ever heard what became of this? I don't see any mentions of it online

I'm looking for movies featuring evil/bad psychiatrists. I'm also looking for movies that feature good (West) Texas accents. An example of the first would be Michael Caine in "Quills,"an example of the second would be Sissy Spacek in "Badlands." Bonus points for contemporary time frame and female actors, but not necessary. Comedies are fine too.

I have one of those help me figure out this vaguely remembered movie questions. I would be so happy if someone got this but since I was around ten years old or so when I saw it, I have my doubts. Here goes - I remember that there were three guys as the main characters. They were something like secret agents. (For some reason I have one of them looking like Richard Dawson from the opening credits of Hogan's Heroes. They all wore that kind of outfit). They were on a mission to some island that was run by a mysterious man and woman. There was a castle or haunted house on the island.They had to uncover some mystery on this island. The one part I remember clearly was a scene where they kept hearing a baby cry during the night and then there was a scene where they discovered some secret room on the basement of the castle/haunted house. I'm guessing the movie was made in the late sixteies early seventies. Any ideas? All help greatly appreciated. ( I have had other half remembered movies that I have been able to find using Google or IMBD, but this one has eluded me)

Examples of recurring in-jokes or motifs in film and television? Examples I can think of are the appearances of "1138" in George Lucas's movies (referring, of course, to THX-1138), and the numbers 1013 and 1121 (and, subsequently, the times 10:13 and 11:21) in The X-Files, being the birthdates of Chris Carter and his wife.
