HAPPY HALLOWEEN WITH “THE KILLER SHREWS”
From the world’s largest collection of coming attractions at the Academy Film Archive, find out what happens when low budget Dallas, Texas filmmakers create a ‘50s monster movie – using the family dogs as the stars, complete with furry costumes. A prime example of the classic American drive-in experience, this rare announcement trailer for THE KILLER SHREWS (1959) reveals what happens when “the world’s most vicious animal” goes on a man-eating rampage.
The Packard Humanities Institute Collection is the largest known acquisition of theatrical trailers on film. Deposited by David Packard in 2009, this historically significant collection contains over 70,000 moving images and has transformed the Academy Film Archive into the world’s foremost repository of motion picture trailers.

Strawberry Stripes: Blend together (oh high) ten strawberries (roughly two cups, uncut), one cup of water, & six drops of stevia together.
Cream Stripe: Whisk together one can of coconut milk (room temperature or cold; it doesn’t matter) & 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract.
-Pour strawberry mixture in each mold up to about 1/3 of the mold. This should leave about half of the strawberry mixture for later. Freeze for about 45 minutes to an hour.
-Take out of the freezer & work quickly to add the coconut stripe. I recommend spooning the mixture in to the mold to help keep the stripes in tact. Remain calm: if the stripes get messed up, the popsicles still taste delicious. ;) Freeze for another half an hour or so until cold & stiff (they should not be frozen all of the way through).
-You will have leftover coconut cream, but it can’t be helped (see below for ideas of what to do with it…).
-Carefully pour in the final layer of strawberry. Again, use a spoon for accuracy if you’d like.
-Insert popsicle sticks & freeze through completely (I recommend overnight, but you can probably cheat & take them out earlier than that.)
