Just Imagine (1930) New york, 1980: airplanes have replaced cars, numbers have replaced names, pills have replaced food, government-arranged marriages have replaced love, and test tube babies have replaced ... well, you get the idea. Scientists revive a man struck by lightning in 1930; he is rechristened "Single O". He is befriended by J-21, who can't marry the girl of his dreams because he isn't "distinguished" enough -- until he is chosen for a 4-month expedition to Mars by a renegade scientist. The Mars J-21, his friend, and stowaway Single O visit is full of scantily clad women doing Busby Berkeley-style dance numbers and worshiping a fat middle-aged man.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Single O: Boys, I vouldn't know de old town! Vere is all de automobiles? RT-42: [pointing skyward] Oh, they're in the upper level. J-21: Hardly anyone drives a car now. They all use planes. Single O: Is dat so? RT-42: Yeah, I drive a Rosenblatt. J flies a Pinkus for his personal use, but all the airliners are Goldfarbs. Single O: Goldfarb! [laughs uproariously] Single O: It looks like someone got even with Henry Ford!
  • Single O: [upon meeting Looloo, then Loko] She's not the queen - *he* is!
Movie Trivia:
  • Hearing that people fly "Rosenbergs" and "Goldbaums" instead of driving cars, Single-O comments that someone got revenge on 'Henry Ford' - a jab at the famed auto maker's well-known rabid anti-Semitism (now all but forgotten).
  • First science fiction film made as a talkie, also as a musical.
  • Images from this film, showing the elaborate model of a futuristic New York skyscape, are often mistakenly identified as scenes from Metropolis (1927).
  • The name of the character "Single-O" is a joke on his out-of-place status in the future world: "single-o" is an outdated term for a circus sideshow featuring a single person or object (as distinguished from the "ten-in-one" revolving show).
  • The spaceship became Dr. Zarkov's rocket in the Flash Gordon serial. Footage of the dance number featuring and idol was used in the serial as entertainment for Ming.
