Quick Question

Continuing on yesterday's post of impossible to find movies....is anyone familiar with HBO Short Takes? They were 5-15 minute short films shown between features during the 70's & 80's. I've been trying to locate the name of one for years, but have had no luck. If anyone remembers these, e-mail me and maybe you can be the lucky one to help me find this missing piece of my childhood.

No specific luck, but I did a quick search and came up with the following:

This conversation thread talks about some of the episodes and has a few links in the comments.:


I also checked Youtube and they appear to have a few of the videos on line: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5_4hcykztc

Wow, that's a lot of memories flooding back at once. Recorded Live seriously freaked me out when I was younger, I had totally forgotten that one until I watched it again.

John, I hope you live near me, for sometime we have to get together and have a long pop culture conversation.

But did you find the one you were looking for?

I used less of my pop culture knowledge and more Google-fu to find them.

Yes, a little extra searching from your jump off point led me to "Coffee Break", the short I was looking for. Bought it from Amazon on a VHS tape called "Escapes", hosted by Vincent Price. Should be kicky.
