"The Last Detail"

The Last Detail (1983) stars Jack Nicholson as Billy "Badass" Budduskey, a "skivvy waver" 1st class, who is in transit in Norfolk, Virginia. For those who have not been around the Navy, sailors are "in transit" while they await new orders for their next assignment. While they wait, they are assigned every "shit detail" that needs doing on base. Norfolk, although it got a lot of revenue from the Navy presence, was not friendly to sailors. Signs like "sailors and dogs, keep off the grass" and "painter wanted -- sailors need not apply" were common. He is assigned to chase a prisoner (escort him) to Portsmouth Naval Prison to serve an 8 year sentence, and then receive a dishonorable discharge. Otis Young is also assigned as the second chaser. The seaman they are escorting is played flawlessly by Randy Quaid, who is an 18 year old kleptomaniac who got caught trying to grab $40.00 from the base polio fund.

Unfortunately for Randy, it is the base commander's wife's favorite charity. Baddass plans on rushing the prisoner to Portsmouth, then splitting the travel and per diem money given for the three of them with Otis, and enjoying the two weeks allotted. As he gets to know the meek Quaid, who has never done anything, and "doesn't know how to have fun," he decides that it is up to him to teach the kid something, and show him a good time before he delivers him. The good time includes beating up three Marines in a bus station head, drinking most of the beer on the east coast, and finally getting the kid laid at a house of ill repute, where we have exposure from Carol Kane as a young lady of easy virtue. In the widescreen version, all we get are glimpses of her breasts, but the 4/3 version shows bush as well

IMDB readers have it at 7.5 of 10. Both Nicholson and Quaid received Oscar nominations for their performances, and Nicholson won best actor BAFTA, and best actor at Cannes as well. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 100% positive. Over the course of the film, we see Quaid bloom, then, at the inevitable conclusion, withdraw back into himself. It was a difficult part, and he nailed it. I suppose I am somewhat biased as an ex Navy man, but this is one of my favorite films. Nicholson simply is Badass Budduskey, Otis Young was a perfect counterpoint to Nicholson, and the story was lively, human, and believable. The ending scene is one of the highlights. Quaid is turned over to a smartass Marine Lieutenant, who then proceeds to harass Nicholson and Young, and you can see that, with every fiber of their being, they want to kill this "Jarhead," but they meekly kiss his ass, and leave with their tails between their legs. This scene alone said volumes about my experiences in the Navy. The DVD is a little grainy, especially in the darker scenes, but is watchable.

    Note: the day that we posted the top 20 nude scenes on, we received 411,000 visitors on that site! (A couple of big sites linked to it.) That is the most we have ever had on a site in a day, even when the entire celebrity nudity site was free back in 1996.  The previous day, had the usual 25,000 visitors.



    Dear Scoop:

    Just wanted to see if any of  the experts had gotten any good caps of Rachael {"This is your mind on drugs!"} Leigh Cook in the DVD of Sally that came out on December 10th? She has a dark, topless love scene {a first for her} that I suspect your capping capos could en-lighten for us.

    Just wondering...

    Also, it's "Killing Me Softly" that the threeway X-ercises of Lavinia, Claudia and Corina couldn't qualify for your "Nude Scene of the Year" poll... My first reaction was how refreshing that these three girls--who were abused by a rigid system and essentially starved and drugged to stay "supple" and pubescent for the Sports of Nymphs--have been able to recover and grow up to be normal, full-figured foxes {well, Lavinia and Corina surely} with...the Russian judge might disagree...terrific ta-ta's!

    No steroids, no silicone, and no diuretics. Not bad!  Kudos to Tuna for one of the finest sequences in jpeg history! You might say it put the capper on his career. Thank him for giving the ol' "collage" try...


    Celebrity Sleuth

    Scoop's note: I ordered Sally just now, so I'll try it in a few days, but I don't have much hope of finding anything. Several guys have capped it, and there doesn't seem to be any runaway boobage. Here's what there is so far:

    • Rachel Leigh Cook (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


    Other crap:



    "The Bush Jernals"



    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    We headed back in the time machine finally leaving 1965 behind us, but stopped off in 1982 to visit "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" at the notorious Chicken Ranch.

    Of course we first take a look at Dolly Parton and some of her mega-cleavage. Then some bare boobs from Annie Gaybis and Terri Treas. Next is some nice see through from Victoria Wells. Then on to some caps of various unknown Chicken Ranch girls, some bare boobs and some peeks here and there.

    Most of the scenes are during the raid as the girls entertain the Texas Aggies football team. This movie just came out on DVD this week, it's my wife's favorite movie and worth a look for Dolly and Bert Reynolds fans. Actually the best part of the movie is Charles Durning's musical number for which he received an Academy Award nomination in a supporting role.

    Time to crank up the time machine and get out of here, want to get back to the present. See you next time.

    'Caps and comments by Spaz:

    "Heaven's Tears" (1994) is a non-Czechploitation WW2 romance by Lloyd Simandl starring soapstar Stepehen Nichols, Beata Pozniak and Lisha Snelgrove.

    More Lisha Snelgrove exposure....

    "Just One of the Girls" (1993) is a lame comedy about crossdressing.

    Finally today, a follow up from the Scoopy mail box. Here is a really crappy scan of Cathy Rigby posing nude (rear view) while doing a split on the balance beam that appeared in the August 1972 issue of Sports Illustrated.
