SYNOPSIS: No doubt that some older film fans may remember catching these films as kids during the late 60's at a Saturday afternoon matinee. Or maybe later in the early 70's as grade school filler pouring from a 16mm film projector.

The Wishing Machine: Czech / French import about two boys, Tom and Charlie, who encounter the title machine and have a series of adventures. After taking in all the amazing sights at the World's Fair the duo tell their classmates of a "wish machine" they saw and soon the whole class is joining in the fun. Eventually our two stars decide they want to take a spaceship to the moon. But first they must complete a task as per the sexy voice in the rocket they dub "The Space Lady". After more adventures the boy's imagination has them as captives in a filthy Czech prison headed for execution! Needless to say their overactive imaginations land them home safely having learned a few lessons.

Kingdom of the Clouds: Classic "Kiddie Matinee"-type fare. An epic journey by a hero, fairy tale setting, mystical creatures and fantastic landscapes all courtesy of late 60's Romania! A hopeful young man searches for the key to eternal life. Along the way he runs into Father Time, a sexy fairy, an evil bird creature and he battles the Green Witch in the "Land of Decay". There's also a giant spider web, the Queen of Birds and the magic "Golden Apple of Truth" and....you get the idea. They packed this one full of fairy tale goodness.
