Shampoo (1975) -- day two. A reader requested caps of Carrie Fisher, who played the daughter of Lee Grant and Jack Warden, and who also had sex with Warren Beatty. His reasoning? She didn't have any nudity, but she looked real sexy. I agree, and her nipples understand exactly what to do to a tennis shirt. While I was looking, I took a harder look at Julie Christie's scenes, both in the Widescreen and 4/3 versions, and found breast exposure and nip slips that I completely missed the first time through.

Notice how nicely photographed these two sets of images are. It is no accident, as the DP was László Kovács. Paul Simon provided the original score.

Hope you enjoy these additional images.

    "Holy Smoke"

    Holy Smoke (1999) was reviewed by Scoopy on July 9th of this year in his usual thorough fashion. I agree with most of what he said., it is not a very good film. The plot was full of holes, the acting was poor, the photography was dark, and the attempts at humor fell flat. I did find a very few things to like about it. It is the story of an Australian family who hires Harvey Keitel to deprogram their daughter, Kate Winslet, after she fell under the spell of an Indian Guru while on vacation.

    Having read reviews before I watched it and therefore knowing that this was a bad film, I had low expectations, which allowed me to be as alert at the end as at the beginning. At the end of the film, a sunbaked Keitel is laying on the desert sand and sees Winslet as a six-armed Hindu Goddess in the distance. Incidentally, one of the good things about the film was some computer generated artistic effects, and this was one of them. Then there is an exchange of mail. Kate is back in India, has taken her mother, and is enlightened, or seeking enlightenment. She also comments that there was something real between them. He responds that, after she left, Pam Grier forgave him, took him back, and he had twins and was working on his second book. He also hinted that he would leave it all for Winslet. Based on this rather flimsy evidence, I think the film asks us to examine why cults that we are not members of (like Winslet's Baba cult) are more wrong than cults we are members of (like Christianity). In fact, Winslet deprograms Keitel, and they are both better for it. It is my feeling that the humorous moments are there for comic relief, and do not indicate a satire. While most of the humor didn't work for me, I did like using a live sheep for a coffee table, and Keitel in drag is a hoot. Of course, I may be giving the author too much credit. I still don't understand the sequence of Kate's seduction of Keitel. She walks up to him stark naked and asks him to kiss her. He refuses. Then she pees down her leg, and he suddenly can't resist her.

    Some say the dark images were probably a result of the transfer. I don't think so. Many of the scenes are back-lit, some with available light, such as sunlight through a window. This resulted in too much contrast between the lightest light and the darkest dark, which oversaturated the image in the light areas. The only way to solve this was to darken everything. Which brings me to another thing I found to like -- they attempted a lot of innovation in the photography and had some nice set design. Some of the photography worked.

    Memorable quotes:

    Winslet to Keitel: "I didn't go to Baba to get my fuckedness fixed."
    Winslet to Keitel: "What do you like abut me? Do you like my personality or my breasts best?"

    There must be something in the Australian catering food that causes instant weight gain. If you recall, all of the women in Sirens were well above their fighting weights, and Kate was more than ample here. For those who just have to see a jumboized naked Kate in motion, go to 1:03:53 and watch for 4 minutes. For the rest, I am saving you the pain with these images. She shows full frontal both seducing Keitel, and then after the sex lying in bed.

    IMDB readers have this at 5.8 of 10. Ebert awards 2 1/2 stars. Rotten Tomatoes has it at 43% with 335 from the top critics. WHile the film as a hole had problems, there was enough of merit in it for me to make it worth the watch. C-.

    The latest from Sundance...

    "Confidence": genre film, complicated sting

    IMDb link

    NUDITY: there is some miscellaneous nudity. Dustin Hoffman plays the owner of a sex club, and some of the anonymous employees are seen topless or in bikinis from tiem to time. Ed Burns and Rachel Weisz have a sex scene, but it is shot in silhouette against a backdrop of colored light, and nothing is visible.

    World Premiere at Sundance

    Ed Burns plays the leader of a crew of grifters who mistakenly rip off some money from a powerful and eccentric mobster. Rather than returning the money, Burns proposes to create a new custom sting for the boss (Dustin Hoffman), thus allowing the freaky criminal to gain some revenge on an old associate.

    The mechanics of the sting are interesting, but it's not especially difficult to see the details which are supposed to be hidden from the audience. The secrets are altogether too obvious to people who regularly watch movies of this type. The most innovative element of the sting is that Burns and his men have to devise the sting like a chess game, with several options that hinge on the behavior of the "marks".

    The stylish sting seems to be properly conceived, but the mechanics of the sting are really the entire movie. The character development is minimal, so that by the end of the movie, the characters still remain strangers to the audience. There is some babble about the thrill of the con, but apart from that the characters' motivations and backgrounds are fundamentally unknown. They are people whose lives begin and end in the time frame of the film. They aren't people, but movie characters.

    Dustin Hoffman seems to have gotten off on the sheer quirkiness of his role, and his audacious, mannered turn, filled with plenty of Hoffman's usual detailed character embellishments, provides some of the film's more interesting moments, but the filmmakers didn't really need an actor of his genius to play a "mark", and there was no reason for the character to be an aging, over-the-top mobster of questionable sexuality. (In fact, they rewrote the character when Hoffman came on board.)

    It's a solid genre script which is given additional credibility by the presence of Hoffman, filmdom's greatest character actor, but I don't see much potential box office appeal to crossover audiences.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • 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.

    A few words from the Sleuth
    Dear Scoop:

    As often happens, I find it's easier to come up with the nudes than the "surrounding shots" that make an article possible. A case is point is arguably the "hottest commercial of the year" (though I favor "The Retirement Village People" :-); namely, the Miller Lite "Catfight" that's been running throughout the playoffs (thankfully, longer than the Eagles :-).

    Anyway, I've been able to acquire MANY NUDES of brunette brawler Kitana Baker {different and more revealing than those in the Fun House} but, to make it work, we need a sexy collage of the commercial: i.e., arguing at the table, turning it over, flying into the fountain, and rolling around with panties showing. I would really appreciate if one of your expert 'cappers could capture all the action...THAT will make inclusion of Kitana in an upcoming issue possible!

    And if any FH members have, or can locate, any revealing shots of the blonde combattant: TONYA BALLINGER ... that would be a nice complement.

    Speaking of compliments {ugh!}, I greatly appreciate how responsive--and effective--your members have been whenever we've requested help in the past!

    Best to all, Sleuth

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    Well after yesterday's look at the lovely Angie Dickinson in 1974's "Big Bad Mama", we slid the old time machine back to 1972 and gathered some more goodies from "The Adult Version of Jekyll & Hide".

    This time we see first Jane Tsentas as "Miss Hide" as the doctor drinks some potion, and transforms himself into this gorgeous woman who has one impressive rack.

    • Jane Tsentas, topless and full frontal (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    The next scenes feature a "Babe in Bondage", Linda York who is spied upon thru her window by the doctor who has now transformed himself into "Jekyll". He climbs in her window ties her up and has his way with her and when he's done kills her with one nasty blow to the head. The best part of all this, there all naked.

    • Linda York, all 3 B's (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    'Caps and comments by Spaz:

    "Matchmaker Dirty Dating" is an R-rated dating show bordering on soft-porn shown on the Life network in Canada.

    "Sirens" is a dirty cop drama not to be confused with the Hugh Grant comedy. One-timer Shannon Barrett shows her boobs as a red-headed hooker.

    "Frostfire" (1994) is a mystery that takes place in the Arctic. One-timer Jolanta Pyra shows her boobs and butt in igloo.

    "The Shower" (1992) is some sort of romance. Very muddled script as indicated by the actors and actresses sharing a "co-creator" writing credit.

    • Kate Lynch: partial butt making love in shower. She played Bill Murray's girlfriend in Meatballs.
    • Janet-Laine Green: partial butt making love in shower.

    "Summer's Children" (1979) is another mystery.

    • Patricia Collins shows some breast exposure. She is best known as John "Dean Wormer" Vernon's wife in the Wojeck tv series.

    "Fireballs" (1988) is a blatant ripoff of the comedy Firehouse.

    • Lara Daans is the brunette topless as a bikini contestant.

    "Red the Half Breed" (1970). More actresses identified from this French-Canadian flick.

    "Skin Deep" (1994) is a lesbian/transgender thriller not to be confused with the John Ritter comedy. It has an actor playing a woman who acts like a guy.

    Boozecan (1994) is about some guy opening up an illegal afterhours club. Only notable by walk-on part by director David Cronenberg and other actors whom the director Nicholas Campbell called favors from.

    "Meatballs III" (1987) Caroline Rhea almost falling out of her bikini top as "beach girl #4".

    Caroline Cellier Topless and tan in scenes from "L'Année des méduses" (1984).

    Ilona Staller Baring a single exposed breast on a German talk show.

    Valérie Kaprisky

    Bernadette Penotti Vidcaps by PAL of Bernadette playing the demanding role of "Molested Dancer" in topless scenes from "Kiss of Death" (1995).

    This movie has a cast of Hollywood heavyweights just before many of them hit it big. But despite the acting chops of David Caruso, Samuel L. Jackson, Nicolas Cage, Helen Hunt, Kathryn Erbe, Stanley Tucci, Michael Rapaport and Ving Rhames, the movie is only ok at best, made nothing at the box office and is not even available on DVD.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    "Rambo IV: Tired Blood"
    Britain's Sun tabloid reports that Sylvester Stallone will star in a "Rambo IV" that will hit theaters next year and have Rambo fighting Osama bin Laden. An insider said the script originally had Rambo killing bin Laden singlehandedly, but that was deemed too ridiculous. So now, Rambo will just be the brains behind bin Laden's downfall.

  • He's the one who came up with the idea of blowing him to bits.
  • Rambo is the brains? Talk about ridiculous!
  • His newest weapon: a rocket launcher mounted on his walker.
  • He's a bit late: Osama's already deader than Stallone's career...In fact, these days, Osama actually appears on camera less frequently than Stallone does!

    Her Nickname: "Have-Unotha" - In Bangkok, Thailand, Arunotha Sriaran beat out 14 other women to win the coveted title of "Miss Drunk." She drank 10 pints of Thai wine, then walked a zigzag course between two rows of bottles. Organizers wanted to promote drinking local wine instead of foreign whiskey, and contestants had to wear helmets in case they fell. But Miss Sriaran said she wasn't even drunk, just a little dizzy, and after she washed her face and had one cup of coffee, she was fine.

  • And this is why men buy women whiskey instead of Thai wine.
  • Still, it's easy to fall when you're wearing a bathing suit with high heels.
  • The first runner-up claims that since the winner wasn't drunk, she can't be "Miss Drunk."
  • The Miss Drunk Pageant was hosted by Diana Ross.

    Their Movements? What, Bowel Movements? - More than 300 people in Limoges, France, demonstrated in support of a farmer who was ordered to pay $32,000 damages to a new neighbor who moved from the city, and who was offended by the movements, mooing and smell of his cows. The farmer's lawyer said, "If everyone has to muzzle their cows, it's going to change the face of the French countryside. As for the smell, what is he supposed to do? Put diapers on them?"

  • Yes! And Chanel #5, too!
  • The neighbor moved from Paris to get away from that smell!
  • No, mainly, he's supposed to pay $32,000.
  • Sounds like Martha Stewart's moved to the French countryside.
  • Anna Nicole Smith's neighbors had the same complaints.
