Thanksgiving in 1951 might not be as different for many today as it was back then.
Bill Johnson’s family can’t afford a turkey this year. Dick, Tommy, Susan and Baby Janet are devastated.
But there is still much to be thankful for, especially in the shadow of what the world was like only a few short years before during World War II. At that time, it was a world of refugees, barbaric oppression, where starvation was rampant and life was cheap.
This is a humorous gag trailer for a horror movie night that a local US theater ran in the 1950's, Bug-O-Rama ...
"Your skin will crawl, your flesh will creep, after you've seen our Bug-O-Rama. It's the show to recommend to your enemies. The unbearable terror may drive them MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD. A licensed exterminator will be on duty at all performances. But just in case, bring your own bug powder. Watch out! The bugs are coming."
"The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise" is a popular ballad with lyrics by Gene Lockhart and music (Toronto 1918) by the concert pianist Ernest Seitz, who had conceived the refrain when he was 12. Embarrassed about writing popular music, Seitz used the pseudonym "Raymond Roberts" when the song was first published by Chappell in 1919.
