Cultish comedy

"Weird Al" Yankovic’s Oklahoma-sized motion picture debut, UHF, celebrates 25 years this month.


Louis Fowler

The summer of 1989 was one of the biggest blockbuster summers of all time, with hit movie after hit movie released, including Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. In the middle of this cluttered schedule, a little low-budget comedy starring song-parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic titled UHF was quietly released and then quickly disappeared into the cinematic flotsam.

Wish Lists


Gazette staff
What do local notables want this holiday season? Well, Oklahoma Gazette asked ’em. And they told us. Imagine that!  We passed along these lists to Mr. Claus to do with as he sees fit. But for now, we’re reading the list — some of it twice, because it’s that good. We talked to everyone from adult film stars to leading conservative politicians to get insight — and a laugh — from our leading locals. Happy holidays! — Jennifer Chancellor

Summer Cinema Clinics

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The saying goes, “Those who can’t do, teach.” But Gray Frederickson, Academy Award-winning producer (The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now) and artist in residence at Oklahoma City Community College, excels at both. Frederickson and the Oklahoma Film Institute will host a series of three-day clinics in which you can learn the ins and outs of everything from script writing to cinematography. The clinics begin with motion picture production 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday-Saturday at the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the OCCC campus, 7777 S. May Ave. Tuition for each clinic is $300. Call 682-7847 or visit

Thursday–Saturday, ongoing
