I love all things 1940s/50s/early1960s: Music, clothing, vehicles, lifestyle etc. I have an interest in UFOs, Sci-fi and paranormal etc.
If you are expecting modern movies with lots of CGI, over-the-top or impossible special effects then this is probably not the channel for you! - The movies on my channel are best enjoyed by those who have the privileged ability to immerse themselves into the time period when the movies were made. So relax, grab a beer (or coffee!) and get IMMERSING! -
PS. I put many hours into searching,downloading/uploading, trimming, adjusting, these videos, at my own expense, so if you appreciate my work then please consider tipping me the price of a cup of coffee. Every little helps me to find more videos to upload. Thank you.
