Didn't you enjoy the vivacious and perkily sexy Tad Tadlock in yesterday's DESIGN FOR DREAMING? How could anyone resist a sequel?

Let's watch A TOUCH OF MAGIC.

Robb--I do suspect, if not LSD, then too many three-martini lunches at work here...

IIRC, 1961 was about the time color TV really started getting to be a common household item. It had been available for a few years before but cost prohibitive. Anyhow, just about anything in color was acceptable as the wow factor hadn't worn off yet.

Expat--a very astute explanation for the popularity of these features--color was indeed marvelous back then, whatever the content.

Robb--good point.

I wish my SF stories were half as colorfully insane as these videos.

Pablo--perhaps we're making too much of the drug riffs, retrospectively adding from our post-60's perspective.

Larriann--of course, some of the 1930s Busby Berkeley numbers look like acid trips too!

Big Gary--Maybe they were even theatrical releases, prior to the main feature...?

Mark--glad you dug it! I concur....
