Action Family (1986) with Chris Elliott

Presented below is Chris Elliott's made for Cinemax 1986 special, Action Family. His annoying, un-self aware character is channeled into private detective Chris in this mash up of Kojack meets The Partridge Family. Look for Seth Green as his son plus cameos from Bob Elliott and David Letterman.

Grateful Dead - 1969 - Playboy After Dark

Here's a little video time capsule from 1969 as the Grateful Dead make an appearance on Playboy After Dark and perform "Mountains of the Moon" and "St. Stephen" for Hugh Hefner and pals. The long standing rumor is that Hef had a security guard keep an eye on his drink so as not to be slipped any acid.

The Hellbenders (1967)

Director Sergio Corbucci's The Hellbenders (1967)
is a favorite Euro-Western of mine. 
Joesph Cotten stars as ex-Confederate Colonel Jonas, a ruthless and still fanatical man. The plot revolves around a stolen shipment of U.S. Government banknotes stashed in a coffin that everyone from the United States Cavalry to a group of bandidos is actively pursuing.
