The first time Elsie and I saw that, we were spellbound. You just don’t see acting like that nowadays. Well, actually you might do, but with us not having a television set I wouldn’t really know.
In view of the wise-guy commentary, we’re assuming that they were playing it for laughs, in which case this must be the acting equivalent of the virtuoso pianist deliberately playing out of time and out of key.
Whatever, it’s not the only example …
Now, seeing as how that first one’s No.2 and the one with the cat’s No.6, where do we find the others?
I love these old ’50s Singer commercials–probably because I remember those days, and because we didn’t have television so this is the first time I’ve seen them.
I knew you’d love them! I thought they were hilarious and had to share them with you.
I have a ’50s leaflet with drawn cartoon strip in similar vein. Will share soon via Flickr…
