RIP VAN WYK (1960, aka RIP VAN WINKLE) Jamie Uys, Wynona Cheyney, Willem Loots, Johan Malherbe.  This movie has little to do with the Rip Van Winkle story.  It’s actually a time travel movie. Set in 1859, Uys meets a mysterious man who feeds him a potion causing him to hurtle 100 years into the future.  He awakens, un-aged, in 1959—a strange, unfamiliar, modern world.  The film gives a very interesting perspective about how someone from the past would react to all things modern—automobiles, radios, TVs, clothing, etc.  It’s quite well done and very poignant.  Watch for the scene when Uys, who is sitting on a bench, has a gorgeous babe in a tight skirt stand next to him, her butt in his face.  Another great scene has him going to the site of his home, only to find a factory where his house used to be.  He spends much of the movie trying to convince everyone he's from the past.  The scene in a psychiatrist’s office is another fine moment. Great fun in its own way with an endearing ending.  From 16mm.
