"Until September"

Until September (1984) is a romantic comedy staring Caren Allen as an American who misses her connecting flight to Eastern Europe in Paris. She was helping to chaperone school kids, but getting a replacement passport, visas, and another flight will take some time, so she decides to stay in an apartment with an old school friend. The friend is away on vacation, as is most of Paris, including the wife of handsome Frenchman and neighbor Thierry Lhermitte. Allen is immediately attracted to him, and he is in need of a mistress. Thus it begins.

Allen shows breasts, buns, and even some bush in three scenes. IMDb readers have this at 5.0 of 10. I found it barely watchable, and that due to Karen Allen, whom I have always thought was cute. It is a complete cliche and very predictable start to finish, but Allen was engaging enough to keep me from hitting fast forward. C-.

    • 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.

    Hi Scoopy !
    Today it is exactly six years ago since I sent in my first contribution not knowing what would happen to it. I had been a Fun House reader since somewhere in August 1996 if I remember correctly. I've known ups and downs in all those years, but reading the Fun House always remained and still remains on top of my daily to do list. I'll end the mushy stuff here, I reminisced already enough about my first time here on previous occasions, so let's move on to the next batch of clips.

    "The Getaway" (1994)

    In "The Getaway" (1994) Kim Basinger did the nasty with her then real-life husband while showing plenty of skin. Jennifer Tilly didn't go quite so far but she too decided to take something off.


    "I Want You" (1994)

    1998 was the year Rachel Weisz, before both Mummy films, went for a full frontal performance in "I want you", a film only available on DVD in Japan as far as I know. It also aired on digital satellite TV in Germany and that's where this clip comes from. Sadly these days it looks like Rachel doesn't reveal anything anymore.


    "The Orchid's Flesh" (1975)

    Rachel would do well to take a leaf out of Charlotte Rampling's book. She is already in her late fifties and still does on-screen nudity. Charlotte is still good looking, but In this clip from 1975's "La Chair de l'Orchidée" (literally The Orchid's Flesh) you can admire her in her prime displaying her breasts and bush.


    "White Mischief" (1987)

    Let's end today's contribution with an actress who faded somewhat into oblivion but was considered hot stuff when she rose to fame in the 1980's. Greta Scacchi demonstrated her ample charms in "White Mischief" (1987), a film still not available on DVD in many countries (like the US and the UK).

    Jr's Polls
    Here are the results and comments for last week's poll...

    Best Nude Debut, the 80's

    This week's topic, Best Nude Debut, the 90's! Cast your vote for the actress who made the best nude debut in a film between 1990-1999.

    Now before everyone sends me email about Jennifer Connelly, let me clarify the requirements. The actress had to be nekkid, and in her film debut.

    For this round, I've eliminated almost all padding. Of the nominees on this list, only 3 had done anything on film prior to the movie debuts you are voting for, the rest were 100% film virgins.

    The 3 with padding are Jolie and Theron (who had small, uncredited parts in one movie each) and Elle Macpherson (who had done a bit part as "model" in a Woody Allen movie).

    Almost all of these ladies are very big stars now, so I humbly ask voters to try to focus on the nudity rather than their current fame.

    Email Scoopy Jr. with your nominees, comments or suggestions.

    New Euro-caps and comments by Jack Snow:

    First up for today, some women in bed.

    Agnes Dünneisen briefly baring her breasts in scenes from the 1979-movie "Die Nacht mit Chandler".

    On a recent 2-part-TV-movie called "Zeit der Wünsche", Lale Yavas was seen topless in the second part.

    Another originally very dark, topless-in-bed scene was done by Marianne Linden in the movie "Tal der Ahnungslosen" aka "Valley of the Innocent". Nisma Cherrat co-starred in this one and showed off her undies.

    Next up, here is German actress Chantal de Freitas showing off an excellent view while lying naked in bed in a scene from the short movie "Fahrerflucht" (2003).

    Alexanrda Schalaudek also bared a bit of bum recently in scenes from "Der Staatsanwalt".

    While getting ready for bed, Catherine Flemming delivers a nice full frontal performance as Rosemarie Nitribitt on the documentary-style series "Verbrechen, die Geschichte machten". The only downer to this scene was that it was shown on a black and white video within the episode.

    Next, a short update on the series "Verschollen", the very lame German version of "Lost". Alexandra Sydow was down to her bra on the episode "Brot und Spiele". On the episode "Vergewaltigt", Antonia Reß was topless but unfortunately underwater, so she actually revealed almost nothing.

    Last for today, a scene from the 1965 Eastern German movie "Das Kaninchen bin ich" ("I Am the Rabbit"). It was banned before the premiere for its political message under the socialist regime until 1989, movies with the same fate were called "Rabbit-movies" referring to the title of this one. It was finally restored in 1999, giving us the opportunity to see Angelika Waller's nude rear when she's washing herself in small tub.

    Scorpion's Skinemax
    Tawny Kitaen The "Bachelor Party" star topless and showing pubes in scenes from "Witchboard" (1986). Most of the frames seen here are from the widescreen DVD. Scorpion added the bottom row featuring VHS-to-DVD conversion 'caps to demononstrate the loss of some extra frontally nudity in the widescreen version.

    Katrin Cartlidge The UK actress baring breasts and giving up very close up bush views in scenes from "3 Steps to Heaven" (1995).

    Shari Shattuck
    (1, 2, 3)

    The Daytime soap actress and B-movie babe topless and swimming nekkid in scenes from the mega-lo-budget movie "The Spring" (1989). Scorpion transfered this movie from VHS to DVD in order to make the 'caps, and they look pretty darn good.

    Natalie Portman
    (1, 2)

    More high quality 'caps of Portman in a thong and playing a non-stripping stripper in scenes from "Closer".

    Jennifer Garner Assorted scenes of Garner in sexy undies and bikinis from various episodes of "Alias".

    Sheryl Lee
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

    Flautista 'caps of the star of "John Carpenter's Vampires" and "Backbeat" going topless in scenes from the indie film "Notes From Underground" (1995), co-starring Henry Czerny, Jon Favreau and Seth Green.

    Ali Landry
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

    Marne Patterson
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    Señor Skin 'caps from the movie "Who's Your Daddy". Don't let plot decription fool you. It sounds like a good movie, and it does feature some some great eye candy BUT...this is a stinker. Click here for Scoop's review.

    As for the nudity...Doritos babe Landry looks great in a bikini and takes a bubble bath with magic suds that manage to cover her fun parts perfectly. The beautiful, blonde Patterson is topless in a sex scene, but nothing is visible because of strategic placement of long hair (links 8 and 9). My personal favorite of the Patterson 'caps is #5.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Dial "O" - New York-based Wicked Wireless has signed a deal with porn queen Jenna Jameson to provide a different kind of cellphone ring tone. She's recording fake sounds of sexual ecstasy that are dubbed "moantones." But fans will have to wait for their cell phones to start sounding orgasmic: moantones will be available only in Latin America for now, but they will penetrate the New York market late this year.

  • Until then, put your phone on "Vibrate" and do it yourself.
  • If it goes off in a deli, everyone nearby will say, "I'll have what she's having."
  • For an extra charge, she'll scream out your name.
  • This is perfect for people who think regular cell phones just aren't distracting enough.
  • Cellular technology is so advanced, your phone can now have phone sex all by itself.

    Need Change? - Ulrike Brucher, a lingerie shop owner in Stuttgart, Germany, hit on a brilliant idea: the Thong-O-Mat. She put sexy panties into restaurant and bar ladies' room vending machines, alongside condoms and tampons. Women who unexpectedly meet Mr. Right (or Mr. Right Now) when they are wearing ugly old granny panties can switch to hotter underwear in the restroom. Each thong also comes with a breath-freshening tablet. It's been so successful, the machines have to be restocked weekly, and janitors are finding old pairs of panties in the trash cans.

  • A word of advice, ladies: all that "Mr. Right Now" cares about is that you buy the condoms.
  • You could just always carry a thong in your purse, but then the guy might think you're a slut.

    The Roman Rock - University of Miami Prof. Steven Tuck has a controversial new theory that ancient Roman gladiators didn't really fight to the death but were more like modern pro wrestlers. He studied gladiator art, compared the stances to ancient martial arts manuals, and found that most of the moves weren't deadly but were ways to conclude a fight without wounding anyone. He notes that the emperors paid top gladiators so much, it would've been a waste of money to make them kill each other. Tuck believes gladiators were actually pampered, overpaid stars with throngs of groupies who put on choreographed fighting displays.

  • Like rappers, except the rappers really do kill each other.
  • And judging from some of the more obscure gladiator art, they were fabulously gay.
  • And chariot races? Nothing but early NASCAR.

    And He'll Sue If You Claim He's Lying - Saturday, Donald Trump married model Melania Knauss in a celebrity-filled, multi-million dollar wedding at his gold-and-crystal-bedecked Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. When the Donald kissed the bride, guest Don King said, "There was a spontaneous combustion of love."

  • I think that was just from the hairspray.
  • If only he'd meant that literally.
  • There was a huge flash, but it was just all the bling-bling.
  • This was the type of wedding where the presence of Don King gave it more class.
