Couch Potato Time

If you're a fan of Charlie Chaplin, Our Gang, Abbot & Costello and the Three Stooges, check out the Comedy Films on the Internet Archive's Moving Images Archive of Feature Films. Other genres include Noir and Horror. You can sort films by date, date added to the collection, average rating and download count (popularity?). The camp value of classics such as Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space make this online resource worth a look.

Aside from feature films/movies, the Internet Archive's Image Archive includes cartoon classics (the Film Chest Vintage Cartoons collection, for example, provides access shorts of Felix the Cat, Woody Woodpecker and Betty Boop); documentaries and educational films; and classic TV commercials (remember Shasta?).
