Yellow Fellow Shoot'em Ups

I love the Yella Fella cliff hanger commercials! I guess they remind me of the old movies I watched as a kid at the Strand Theater on Saturday mornings. It has a simple plot with simple solutions but somehow the quality of the yellow wood of Southern Wood is always worked in.

The hero, the big FELLA in a YELLOW cowboy outfit is Jimmy Rane, founder of Southern Wood Preserving Corporation. It appears he is playing out a childhood fantasy.

The acting is terrible and the cliffhanging is tongue-in-cheek. It is so corny it is good. Heck, I think I'm going to cry again.
