CGI in movies of the 90s

Every beginning is hard. So also the beginnings of computer-generated special effects in the cinema. Diane Bullock has times cinema-TRAILER made the 90 and knocked on their previous CGI qualities. The result is a beautiful SuperCut with some terrible examples. Funny to watch, all that, so in retrospect and the next least 20 likely to continue so years…

As in New York pinball machines were banned in order to win the war

In the 1940s, New York City read all pinball machines in the context of the mafia and gambling ban. Later the confiscated Flipper were melted down and the metal of the weapons industry provided a War to win. Only in the year 1976 the flippers in New York City was legalized again.

In 1940, pinball machines were banned in New York City. Like most contraband, this simply pushed pinball underground. After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, the “Salvage for Victory” campaign called on Americans to turn in scrap Metal to bolster the war effort. As a result, then New York City mayor Fiorello LaGuardia went on a hunt for pinball machines. By February 1942, More than 3,000 machines has been confiscated, turning roughly 2,500 of them into one ton of metal for the war. Unfortunately for pinball enthusiasts, the ban in New York lasted for decades, outliving LaGuardia, who died in 1947.

Considerable thesis of Pascal Floerks at the Film Academy Baden-Wuerttemberg, which u.a. the FirstSteps Nachwuchspreis won for film schools. The short film is about the memories of a grandfather, who has served the Nazi era and the whole thing from the perspective Bear. The First Steps jury wrote:

Corpses entha aren without razor

To Leichenenthaarung there 1912in New York a pioneering development: The post-mortem Rasierpulver. I am doing always so with my corpses, gehts powder on it and from, without Acid and without „offensive Odor“. Indeed, there is still a bit Background Info to Leichenenthaarungsanzeige, apparently there was at that time a lot of companies for corpses depilation without razor:

The magazine is Casket & Sunnyside for January 1912, and there are ample references to it in Charles Addams [Addams Family] and Jessica Mitford. The worry for the consideration of the cost of a shave (15 cents) for a dead person seems quite an inescapable weirdness and luxury. The weirdness of the name of the company nearly obscures it common nature–it isn’t exactly the Acme Corpse Company, but it is close to it, and it addresses just one small bit of minuatiae of deadness in the vast sea of Dead, Inc.

The sellers of the razorless post-mortem shave equipment didn’t receive a patent for their process–nor did anyone else, for that matter, at least so far as I can determine.
