A 1960 commercial promoting the drinking of Coffee. The bad picture quality is because this is from a DVD-R of a Videotape of a Kinescope of a Filmed Commercial. This is a charmingly dated commercial that screams "OLD!".

Avant-garde adaptation of the Oscar Wilde play. Rumors at the time of its production that the cast was all gay doomed its success with the mainstream public.

Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts was first published in 1881 and staged in 1882, and like his earlier play A Doll's House, profoundly shocked his contemporaries. Dubbed "a dirty deed done in public" by one of its critics, the play focuses on (among other things) venereal disease, euthanasia, and incest. The original title literally means "the ones who return," and the play is about how we can deal with the awful legacy of the past. Cast: Mrs. Alving: Elizabeth Klett Oswald Alving: mb...

Librivox recording of An Englishwoman's Love-Letters by Anonymous read by Esther. It need hardly be said that the woman by whom these letter were written had no thought that they would be read by anyone but the person to whom they were addressed. But a request, conveyed under circumstances which the writer herself would have regarded as all-commanding, urges that they should now be given to the world; and, so far as is possible with a due regard to the claims of privacy, what is here printed...

LibriVox recording of First Love, by Ivan Turgenev, translated by Constance Garnett. Read by Martin Geeson. The title of the novella is almost an adequate summary in itself. The "boy-meets-girl-then-loses-her" story is universal but not, I think, banal - despite a surprise ending which notoriously turns out to be very little of a surprise. First Love is given its originality and poignancy by Turgenev's mastery of the piercing turning-point (akin to Joyce's "epiphanies") that...
