“Made on an ultra-low budget of $200, Dingoman Productions proudly presents their first feature film, The Legend of Action Man, a comedy about a mediocre, self-proclaimed superhero Action Man (James McEnelly) who is warned that if he causes any more trouble around town he’ll be put under house arrest. In comes Mark (Trey Dixon), a fresh-faced news intern looking for a big story to get his work on TV, and Action Man seems like an interesting subject. That is, until a murder is reported and the new duo suspects John Magnum (Chris Newhouse), a suspicious millionaire who just moved in down the block. Can Action Man save the city of Sugar Land from his first real villain, or is he in over his head?”
Felix the Cat: The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, 1936
A film by Burt Gillett & Tom Palmer
“Felix is handing out relief, thanks to a goose that lays golden eggs. The evil Captain Kidd sees the goose and breaks into Felix’s house to get it. He brings the goose to his pirate ship. Felix arrives too late to catch the ship. Goldie won’t lay for the pirates. Felix sees a cannon and turns himself into a human cannonball to catch the ship. With help from Goldie and another cannon, he subdues the crew, wrapping them in the sail and depositing them in the hold. He and Kidd have a sword fight, but their swords melt together. Kidd chases Felix up the mast, then foolishly cuts off his own support. He falls into the hold. They sail for home, where Felix fires off cannon loads of gold coins.” (IMDB)
