Craig Simms, were you ever able to view " George Talking Straight"? If you did, could you tell me who I should contact to view it myself. I saw it many years ago, and I was captivated by this man. It was pure genius to just point the camera at him and let him go. I hope the he is doing well.

many of the early image union broadcasts are online on mediaburn.org. that's the site we have created for unique nonfiction videos from 1972-2002. you can write image union in the search box. each is documented and logged for relatively simple watching.

I am looking for an episode of Image Union from the early 2000s or thereabouts. In particular, I am looking for a black and white film by a cranky student who is petitioning an ugly fountain on campus.
I am finding it difficult to locate much of anything from Image Union episodes online

Whatever happened to Timmy and Lucile?

I am looking for a film that was shown on Image Union. It was a short film created in Hinsdale Illinois back in the 70's. It featured Beatles music and because I never go tto see it the only clues I have about it was a hand letting go of a hand with the music "Don't let me down" I just know it was filmed by a kid from Hinsdale Central High School. My told me it played on Image Union, but I did not get to see it. Would anyone have a clue as to where I could see it?

I am looking for two films that were featured on Image Union years ago, "Mon General" is one, and "Henry" is the other. Thanks, email@example.com Michael McArthur

to reply to both craig and jim, i also remember this (and was actually searching for this which is why i came across this thread) and actually had it taped, yet unfortunately i accidentally taped over it. i'm still upset about this. i must have seen it in the 90's at some point. i think i would have been too young to appreciate it in the 80's. if anyone comes across a copy or source of one, i'd also love to know. my favorite scene has to be where he recounts being pulled over and walking a line and thus starts playing 'basketball' up and down the yellow line in the middle of the road.

Going way back- early 1980s, maybe 1981- a surreal, hilarious short film with a theme around cocktail sausages. A musical number called "Window Shopping for Cocktail Sausages" and a short scene of a man in drag saying "there's nothing quite like the sound of a toothpick piercing the skin of a cocktail sausage. Cocktail sausages: My pals."
Google is giving me nothing- nothing from contacting 11 either- I'd actually be happy if anybody told me they remembered this. Almost 30 years later, I do.

In the early 1980's you showed a film called GEORGE TALKING STRAIGHT, by Jean de Segonzac and Marian Marzynski. Produce by Governors State Univerity 1980. A man confesses to the camera his story of drunk driving and his arrest. It aired on Image Union at least twice that I know of. It would be great if I could acquire a copy. Thank You.

back in the 80's, there was a film about a guy who lost his license due to a DUI. the film followed him around. i recall one scene where he was watching a bears game and screaming about walter payton. does anyone remember the film and what it was called? i always wondered what happened to the guy.

I seem to remember an animation that featured a cat and a man where they were like detectives and I think it was called "Bandits." It would have been on Image Union in the late 80's. I haven't been able to find it in any searches and wonder if anyone has heard of it?

I wish Image Union would show "Fifty Cups of Coffee" again. Think I'll go make myself a pot. I know, I know..."It'll kill ya!"

I haven't lived in Chicago since 1995 but I used to watch Image Union every Sunday night. My favorite was "Sandwich Man", a very popular film about a guy who went from dorm to dorm at Northwestern U's Evanston campus at night, selling sandwiches. I remember that it was so popular that they re-aired it, due to requests from viewers.

What do you all think about today's Image Union compared to its early years.
I haven't watched in regularly in years but I've seen some of the more modern episodes and they don't seem as interesting for some reason.
