The Girl on the Broomstick (1972)



Quote
Saxana has the enthusiasm, but lacks the right talent to become a witch. So she's kept in for 300 years - nothing unusual for a sorceress' school. Being bored, she skims through the magicians' lexicon and finds a formula which brings her into the world of the humans for 48 hours. There she meets the friendly Peter who takes her with him to school... and the adventures begin.

the entire movie:

it was such a fucking gem

she transports from witch school to human school, and this is what happens to teachers









i slapped my thigh and yelled "oh my god." everyone in this movie is utterly human a total fucking rascal

so, these boys



they're running from the law



and what's happened is they've stolen the lexicon of magic, which the witch brought from magicworld, and so the boys transform themselves in order to hide from the cops pulling them over



i laughed so hard. so hard. then they keep going but the cops are suspicious. so the cops pull them over again and lookie here



the popes or whatever are angry! i was dying. the witch was following along



the boys turn themselves into some old men in a truck, so they can stop and get some food. they're trying to figure out the lexicon and they accidentally summon an ass on the table



then the cops arrive, then the witch arrives, she gets the lexicon back with her sneaky stretch arm, and she turns the boys into teddy bears



i felt so good i wanted to call my mother and tell her i love her and everything is going to be alright

spoiler: dogs dancing like humans 1930

Quote
THE EARLY SOUND ERA OF film was like the Wild West when it came to making movies. It was into this experimental milieu that a series of short films that used all-dog casts was produced between 1929 and 1931.

Professionally trained canines were the stars of the “all-barkie” Dogville Comedies. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer produced the nine shorts as parodies of Hollywood’s hits. The films were shot with silent film and dubbed over with human speech, utilizing the voices of the creators Jules White and Zion Myers, as well as their colleague Pete Smith. According to Jan-Christopher Horak, the director of UCLA’s film and television archive, it is likely that other contracted MGM actors and actresses also lent their voices to the films, although none of that work was credited.

To a modern viewer, it can be hard to tell who the audience of these films were. It might seem like a canine cast is best suited for children, but the plots were often mature, featuring adultery, murder, and even cannibalism.

These things were amazing. I remember seeing them as interstitials between movies on AMC back in the day, but when I tried to find info about them later it was almost like they never existed. I finally found someone online who was selling home-burned DVDs of all the shorts for like 30 bucks, so I bought it and started playing it for my wife (girlfriend at the time), who watched two minutes of it and spent the rest of the time looking at me like I was insane. 30 dollars well spent.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

They show these at the Drafthouse pre-show sometimes. Isn't there one that's a murder mystery?
