Trapped by television

Postby DrZarkov » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:49 pm

Today I found at archive.org an interesting "science fiction" movie from 1936: "Trapped by Television".
From the original description:
"Not to be confused with "Murder By Television" starring Bela Lugosi. This film is about a young inventor trying to get his television system financed. A gang of crooks are out to stop him. This film is considered science fiction by many because the concept of television was still on the drawing boards in the 30's, but it's also a comedy. Stars Lyle Talbot, Mary Astor, Nat Pendleton, and Joyce Compton. Whether you would consider this scifi or not, you should find it entertaining anyway."

And here the link to download the movie (legally, the copyright ran out by age of the movie):

We enjoyed watching this movie last night. You had to close down disbelief a little but even so it's a great yarn.
