Don Rickles in Beach Blanket Bingo (1965)
Don Rickles performs his stand up comedy routine in the 1965 movie Beach Blanket Bingo where he insults Annette, Frankie and the others. Linda Evans, Paul Lynde, and Buster Keaton is also in this scene. Earl Wilson, who appears in this movie, was a famous Newspaper columnist.
And how often do you get three comedy greats (Buster Keaton, Don Rickles, and Paul Lynde) appearing together?

Animated Sprite Drive In Intermission Commercial
This is an advertisement for Sprite soda. This intermission commercial played in Drive In movie theaters. I do not know the year it was made, nor the years it was shown on Drive In screens. (I sure would like to know). But it is indeed a delightful little commercial.

I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith, in the capacity of the American people, because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and good jobs for the jobless. This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal. This was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation, and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment, this was the time when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves.
This is humility? This is knowledge of his limitations?
