Popular:  J-101  Eye Candy for Bars & Clubs  This was our very first DVD, and very popular.  Contains clips of surfing, a Reno rodeo, old-fashioned passenger train trip from the 1950s, jet fighters, short cartoons, film of tornadoes, drive-in movie ads, the Golden Gate Bridge, movie trailers, bi-plane stunt flights, setting explosives to open an oil well, a parachuting school for smoke jumpers, including demonstrations of how to roll to safety after a parachute fall.  Continuous play, silent, about 100 minutes. 

Popular:  J-102  Family Slide Show I - This DVD is a slide show presenting ads from magazines, medical journals, mail order catalogs, and the like from the 1880s to the 1950s.  See ridiculous toys that never made it, ads for appliances designed to straighten your nose while you sleep, home steam cabinets, cough medicine containing cocaine, beer as a magic elixir, rubber nipples to "prevent colic", ads for odd salads from the 1950s.  Cars such as the Edsel and LaSalle.  Postcard scenery, old street scenes, odd signs, funny photos, etc.  There are over 650 slides in this slideshow.  Player piano audio accompanies.  Like all our other DVDs, it's a continuous show, no menus, no fuss, no bother (on most players & computers.)

J-103  Jaw Droppers & Stunts - Acrobats, monkeys, water frolics, a chimp that bathes a cat, animal intelligence, ice skating tricks, Cuban dances, a "duck and cover" civil defense Cold War instructional film, the Calavaras County Jumping Frog competition, a rat circus, cartoons, dangerous car stunts, automobile road tests, old TV commercials, a woman getting her head shaved for a contest, the opening of the Santa's Village amusement park.  Silent film, continuous show.  (This video was formerly called Jaw Droppers 2.)  This is a good all-around video for the entire family

VERY Popular: J-104  All Burlesque - This is a compendium of almost 2 hours of burlesque entertainers and strippers from the 1940s and 50s.  We're not allowed to advertise the names of a couple of the entertainers here, though these particular videos are perfectly legal to show.  Some of the dancers are great, but most are mediocre or just plain bad.  But they all seem to be enjoying themselves.  NOT FOR CHILDREN! This kind of video plays well in a hipster environment or an old-fashioned corner bar or tavern.  

"The Burlesque DVD has made our Monday nights special." -- Ray, bartender at the Powerhouse

J-106 Vistas    >> Special Format!  Unlike the other BarTV videos, which tend to be jarring and have abrupt changes for very active establishments, the Vistas series is a soothing compendium of scenes with gentle changes.  Silent footage, no BarTV drink slides.
