Bambi Meets Godzilla (1969)
One and one-half minutes of pleasure
I will not put any spoilers on. I believe there haven't been too many comments about this film. Anyway, when I saw this film in 1970 at a film festival with a large crowd, nobody knew what to expect. The opening credits started rolling in front of Bambi having an idyllic morning snack to the exact music you would think would be playing during such an idyllic happening. The credits were repetitious, but it soon became clear that they were going to be repetitious so as to be funny, and yes, there was a nice punchline to the credits. Well, when the credits ended, it wasn't long before the cartoon ended. The entire theatre burst into enormous laughter which lasted for several minutes along with loud and long clapping.
Anyone who thinks they actually wasted 90 seconds of their life watching this gem must have a warped sense of reality, or at least, time. Regardless of a low budget, "amateurish" artwork, and no "story", this is one of the most entertaining films ever made. The wit and creativity involved shame most big-budget Hollywood films which take 2 1/4 hours and don't usually supply as much entertainment as this does in 1 1/2 minutes. It's much better than any jokes I've heard since seeing it. It's also much better than MOST things you can do in 90 seconds.
