Beer Barrel Polecats (B+W, 1946)
Curly, Larry and Moe really get themselves in trouble in this Three Stooges short. This slapstick classic makes jailbirds out of the brewmaster trio - unable to find a bottle of beer they decide to brew some themselves and mistakenly sell a bottle to an undercover detective.
Hilarious but ultimately (alas) sobering documentary on America’s favorite
pastime- getting loaded. Narrated by Robert Mitchum (a rather legendary drinker
himself), the film starts off on a merry-go-round filled with drunks, and then
explores the history, the nightlife and the perils of Boozelandia.
Sex, Booze and Those Pills You Use (color, 1982)
A particularly unusual, and gut-splitting, animation about alcohol and sexual disfunction reminds the audience that one or two drinks might turn you into casanova, but too much many might leave your lover something to be desired.
The Glug (color, 1981)
Begins with a dramatic beer-heist and drinking games but ends with young Tony's dependency on on alcohol. This quintessential classroom film hits all the right campy notes.
Lucky Beer Commercial Highlights From the 1960s (Color, 1960s)They don’t make commercials like this anymore. From kooky animated films with figures like Christopher Columbus, the Wright Brothers, Comedian Rich Little in a space suit in a lunar landscape, with a mountain goat (!), jumping out of a airplane, in front of a steamroller to cartoon cavemen with bows and arrows these spots pull out all the stops in their attempts to sell their product.
