TV Turkeys is a compilation of old pilots and broadcasts. I was expecting sixties stuff like "My Mother the Car," but this material is much older and more obscure. It includes a western acted by children/dubbed by adults; a mattress commercial purportedly from the 1930s; a dull interview of SoCal car enthusiasts; a short episode of "Suicide Theatre" starring (I think) DeForest Kelley; a Raleigh cigarette "gameshow;" a sitcom about ditzy stewardesses called "Up On Cloud Nine," starring an actress you'll remember from "Leave It To Beaver;" and my favorite, an outrageous advertisement for the United Fund. It's padded with lame commentary by Ozzie & Harriet actor Skip Young. Mildly interesting but probably not worth paying for; I recommend you check it out for free from the library, like I did.
