munchman: The Best Movie You’ll See This Week


It’s called NOTHING LASTS FOREVER and was written and directed, back in the Dark Ages of the ’60s, by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’s Tom Schiller. Lorne Michaels produced, and the cast includes Dan Akroyd, Imogene Coca, Anita Ellis, Eddie Fisher, Sam Jaffee, Bill Murray, Paul Rogers, and the ineffable Mort Sahl.

In spite of all the above, the film was never released and is only now – at long, long last – available on, of all places. YouTube. Or, thanks to the wonders of the interwebs, right here at TVWriter™:

Ah, those were the days!

  1. That was peculiar. Munchman, you are off by a couple of decades. The title on YouTube says 1984, which makes a lot more sense than the ’60’s. Saturday Night didn’t start until the late ’70’s.
    Interesting use of newsreel footage to fill it out. They got the look of 1930’s movies pretty well. I found it funny and odd enough to sit through the whole thing. Did anyone else spot Larry “Bud” Melman and Edith Bunker?

  2. Thanks for catching that “’60s” typo, Robin. If I’d thought that was when this was made I never would’ve watched cuz I make it a point to know absolutely nothing about anything that happened in the universe before I was born. Which, ftw, was ’85. A very good year, I might add, cuz…well, munchman, you know?
