After watching Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, I'm suddenly dying to watch old, cheesy, crazy-ass sci-fi movies. Can you recommend the good ones to me? [more inside]

I have a four year old (turning five in March) step son who loves dinosaurs, cars, and super heroes. So basically, he's a normal four year old. Any movie suggestions for me/him that aren't Pixar? I'm thinking stuff like The Shaggy D.A. but maybe kids don't like that stuff any more?? Help! [more inside]

I am looking for recommendations for an old film -- old enough to be in the public domain -- in which characters are making a film, so that there are shots of cameras, and of the movie filming. Ideally there'd be some kissing going on, getting filmed. I'm going to use the footage in a music video, so the audio/audio quality isn't important. In case it's not clear, I don't have a specific film in mind, but am just looking for footage from any film that fits the bill. And ideally the film would have been released widely enough that my library's extensive DVD collection would include it. Thanks in advance for any help.

So I've been watching a bunch of older movies on VHS like Wait Until Dark (1963) and Sword in the Stone (1967). At the end when everything's black, right before it turns to the black and white noise, there's a sound of a phone dialing very quickly, or something similar. Anybody else ever noticed it? Out of curiosity, any ideas on what that is, how it happens, why it's there, or anything at all about it?
