Before he broke on through (to the other side), Jim Morrison--yes, of The Doors--starred in this promotional film produced by Florida State University, circa 1964.

Oh my god. That is hilarious. Jim Morrison as college dork.

Next we're going to see him in film shorts from the 50s with him as a little kid learning what the world would be like without zinc.

Dude. When I worked at the FSU movie channel, we *so* had that in our archives.

If only we had realized the goldmine of kitschy goodness we were sitting on. Ah well.

What's with the film "Falluja" that came up after the Morrison/FSU film? Cool music, lots of explosions. Like, showing how KEWL it was to join the army and kill people, or something like that.

I liked the Jim Morrison film. I was just a tad too young to be aware of him during his career.
