Is live streaming in 2020 the new movie night? The new concert? The new drinks with friends?
My longtime friend Robert Daniels (I believe we met 35 years ago this year) has begun live streaming public domain movies on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm. His live stream on March 25 featured two films, including A Case of Spring Fever (1940).
Now it might be the isolation, or lack of anything better going on, but I thought A Case of Spring Fever was hilarious! A man is fed up fixing his broken couch, and wishes he never had to see another spring again. His wish is granted by “Coily”, an animated spring who makes all the rest of the springs in the world vanish! The man can’t use a telephone or drive his car without all the springs that go into it. Each time the man encounters a device that requires springs, Coily appears to taunt him!
“Noooo springs!” ridicules Coily. “Heh heh heh!”
Eventually the man takes it all back and wishes for the world’s springs to be restored. Then, with his golf buddies, he just won’t shut up about springs! On and on he goes, about everything that relies on springs.
Maybe I am easily entertained, but I thought Coily and his friend were absolutely hilarious! Tune in to Rob’s live stream on Wednesday nights, 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, for more public domain hilarity with commentary!
