"The Student Nurses"

The Student Nurses (1970), according to a recent Roger Corman quote, came about because he wanted to make a film with strong female characters. On the other hand, the exploitation giants were consummate "spin doctors" long before the term was even invented, and saying that films about nurses gave lots of opportunities to show tits would not be very PC. This was a little more than a titty flick, and did touch on LSD use, love-ins, abortion and racial inequality, which were certainly hot issues in 1970. At any rate, the film was so successful that he made 4 more nurse films in four years.

Four nursing students in their fourth year share an apartment, but have little else in common. Karen Carlson wants to be in a clean area of medicine, that is, one with no blood, death, etc, and dumps her Ob/Gyn boyfriend for performing an abortion in her apartment. She ends up taking a job as a secretary for a shrink. Elaine Giftos, of the four, has the most patient empathy, and befriends a terminally ill young man. Barbara Lee is a hippy chick, searching for her "thing." She has an affair with a charismatic acid dealer and health food freak who talks her into dropping acid, then dumps her, leaving her pregnant. Brioni Farrell becomes involved with a Chicano radical, discovering her own Latina heritage, and decides to take medicine to the barrios.

Karen Carlson shows breasts and buns in two sex scenes. Elaine Giftos barely shows breasts in a very dark scene, when she undresses and gets into the young patient's bed. Barbara Lee has sex on the beach in bright sunlight, and shows breasts and buns, and just a wisp of public hair in a lengthy, well lit scene. Brioni Farrell shows no skin at all. All four women have continued to work in the business, more in TV than film. Technically, the film is acceptable quality, with some nice shots. While there were no brilliant performances, there were also no hideous ones. The DVD is a pretty good widescreen transfer. IMDB has it at 3.0, but with only 15 votes. It probably belongs somewhere in the fives. The constant 60's slang, which would normally be nostalgic for me, was irritating in this case. This is a C-.

    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 Brainscan:

    Paparazzi edits of some serious babes today.

    Alicia Witt, mega-cutie actress who had better give up some serious goodies before we all forget who she is. Two views, a plunging neckline and a semi-demi-hemi-see-thru.

    • Alicia Witt (1, 2)

    French singer Alizée, looking better than a woman has a right to... or as good as every woman should. Yep, that's a better way of looking at it. She's at the beach, but still has her top on. WTF?! I thought it was a law in France that babes had to give up their tops at the frigging beach.

    Amy Brenneman at a premiere, in a blue dress, looking plenty okay.

    Italian tv babes Barbara Chiappini and Beatriz Luzzi running 'round topless at the beach. Take note Alizée! This is how it's done.

    Actress, cutie and current flavor of the month since her NYPD Blue performance, Charlotte Ross looking royally beautiful in a dress cut down to there.

    Courteney Cox in an episode from Friends, showing some nice cleavage in a black satin nightgown. She's never looked better, IMHO.

    • Courteney Cox (1, 2, 3)

    From first class to third, we have Courtney Love in a see-thru garment of some sort. Not my cup o' tea, that girl.

    Back to first class. Two more Italian tv babes. Emanuela is topless at the beach whereas Elenoire is in a see-thru garment whilst prancing about on the tube.

    Tennis uber-babe Jelena Dokic. Sent in a dorsal view of her a while back, showing that she has the finest caboose in captivity. Know we get a pokie-filled view of her marvy ventral surface. She is built to please.

    Sticking with ath-a-letes, we got former wrestling sensation Joanie Laurer, aka Chyna. Her robo-wonders are peaking out the bottom of a top eight sizes too small for her.

    U. K. telly babe Kate Baines, letting one of her wonder hooters out for air.

    Kirsten Dunst at the Spiderman premiere, wearing the barely clothed fashion of the time.

    Kylie Minogue, famous for having the world's most delightful bum, showing pokies on the other side of things.

    Marta Chavarri, Euro-socialite, with an up-skirt view worthy of some time and interest.

    Natalie Portman, at the beach. So, okay, she's wearing her top this time but it ain't much of a top.

    Rose McGowan, faux-redhead, looking real nice in a tight t-shirt.

    Serena Williams, showing off the kind of cleavage you could get lost in.

    Shae Lynn Bourne, champion pairs skater, keeping up the on-ice performance even when her costume slipped.

    Shakira. More importantly, Shakira's bum. In skin-tight pants. And I do mean skin-tight.

    Actress Susan Ward in an almost but not quite see-thru dress.

    A bunch of former Hefmates in non-bunnymag pics:

    Former Babewatch honey, Traci Bingham, in something that just barely qualifies as clothes.

    Ulrika Jonnson topless at the beach.

    Victoria Abril at a long-ago premiere in a very transparent top.

    The U.K.'s answer to the Hilton sisters, Victoria Hervey. I like women built like her: interesting and oh so easy to see when the dress falls open.

  • Victoria Hervey

    Last up, my favorite, Vivica Fox, wearing a dress with a plunging neckline.

  • Vivica Fox

    Romane Bohringer
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Very nice breast exposure in all four, plus a bit of bum in #1 and some pubes in #3. Vidcaps from "Total Eclipse" (1995).

    Sigourney Weaver

    An awsome find by Señor Skin! Breasts, bum and bush in scenes from the controversial movie "Irréversible" (2002). The movie has taken a lot of heat for its graphic depictions of murder and rape (including a 9 minute rape scene). It has been floating around the film festival circuit since last May and opens in limited release in theaters today.

    Shannon Elizabeth
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Bikini, thong and original breasts views in scenes from the pre-Pie movie "Dish Dogs".

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    This Means You, Janet Reno! - The producers of the "Girls Gone Wild" videos are planning a live pay-per-view show next week from an undisclosed spring break location, but it had better not be Panama City Beach, Florida. Mayor Lee Sullivan, an ex-police chief, is warning that any co-eds who bare their breasts in public will be taken to jail, and so will anyone who "unchains the girls and asks them to go wild."

  • So the next video will be about topless chicks in prison.
  • Can they build a bigger jail by next week?
  • But trying to convince drunken women to take off their clothes is what spring break is all about!

    He Has Less Money Than WorldCom - Indicted WorldCom CFO Scott Sullivan is reportedly trying to interest Michael Jackson in buying the 19,000-square-foot, $22.5 million white elephant of an estate he was building in Florida. If completed, it will have a private lake, movie theater, fur vault and wine cellar. So far, Jackson has shown no interest.

  • Tell him he could turn the wine cellar into a chocolate milk cellar.
  • Michael can't live in a dump like that! It doesn't even have a Ferris wheel!
  • Michael was interested, until he found out it wasn't literally a white elephant.
