"Full Moon in Paris (1984)
Full Moon In Paris (1984) is a very bad translation of a very good French
film title, "Les nuits de la pleine lune," or "The night of the Full Moon."
I understand that the film was shot in Paris, and that they kept the full
moon part, but the original title actually referred to the film, and made
sense. Let me explain. Pascale Ogier is a recent industrial arts graduate,
working as an intern in a design firm in Paris, and living with her boy
friend in suburbia. While redecorating her Paris apartment, supposedly to
sub-let it, she decides that she wants to keep the apartment and spend some
nights in the city. Her boyfriend is a stick-in-the-mud, and is pushing for
marriage. She is still party age, and wants to experience more of life.
Her best friend in Paris is a married man who would love to seduce her, and
tries in vain throughout the film. After three months of this double life,
she brings home a young musician to her apartment. She wakes up next to
him, and feels trapped in her own apartment. She gets up, flashes the three
Bs for the camera, and leaves to go to the other home. While waiting for
the first train, she stops in a cafe and ends up confessing to a stranger.
He explains that some people are affected by a full moon, and that tonight
is "The Night of the Full Moon," which explains why she was wilder than
normal and couldn't sleep. He is also affected by the full moon. Note that
the term lunacy derives from a similar theory. When Ogier gets back to her
apartment in the burbs, she is in for some surprises. But then, if the
ending wasn't somewhat tragic, it wouldn't be a French romantic comedy,
Besides Bush_Buns_Boobs, Ogier's costumes reveal more as the film goes on,
producing some lovely pokies and see-throughs. Maltin loves this Eric
Rohmer film, citing snappy dialogue and a charming performance from Ogier.
Indeed, she won best actress at the Venice film festival. IMDB readers have
it higher than I would expect for a French art film with subtitles at
6.8/10. The DVD is reasonable quality, but the actual exposure is very
dark. The first time I saw this, I was captivated by Ogier. This time,
Maltin's "snappy dialogue" really got in the way of my enjoyment. The film
is way too talky. That being said, it is well made and well acted. I will
give it a C+.
Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy (1972) is now available on DVD, in one of a
confusing myriad of boxed sets. They seem to be releasing all of Hitchcocks
films, each boxed set with one DVD of the Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV
show. Unfortunately, should you want all of the TV show DVDs, you will
duplicate several of the films buying all of the sets, and the TV show DVDs
are not sold separately. Frenzy is a thriller about a "necktie murderer,"
who rapes then strangles women in London. A former RAF officer turned
barman, Richard Blaney, becomes the prime suspect when his ex is murdered.
There is not as much suspense or tension as is typical of Hitchcocks work,
as we know early on who the guilty party is, and there is far more humor
than usual, but the rape/strangulation scenes are graphic enough.
I was able to cap breasts from Barbara Leigh-Hunt, the murdered ex-wife,
when I did the VHS version, but was unable to get anything useful of Anna
Massey, who played the girlfriend. Thanks to DVD, we now have dark but
clear full-frontal of her. There is also incidental unknown exposure from a
body seen floating at the start of the film, and a last "ripped whore" near
the end. This was Hitchcocks next to last film, and proved that he still
had it. Maltin is nearly orgasmic over this film at 3 1/2 stars. IMDB
readers are equally enthusiastic at 7.3/10. I give it a solid B.

I looked at Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love. Colorful and beautiful film, good sex and nudity, exotic locales, with a gratuitous plot. Either David Lean's worst nightmare, or a masterpiece of softcore titillation. I prefer to think the second, but the director (a woman) meant to create a meaningful movie. Varma #5 is the explicit one I refer to in the commentary.|

I captured the images and created these two collages of Aussie swimming gold medalist Susie O'Neill in a bathing suit that showed off a lot more than she intended. Thanks to Celebrity Sleuth for the tip. There are two identical collages, one with the night vision filter, and one without

"I did the 1992 Australian film Romper Stomper. According to the DVD, it was the number two film in the Australian box office that year, and established Russell Crowe as a major star down under. It's about a skinhead gang which is ultimately destroyed by its own virulent hatred, not to mention poor hair care. You're going to think you're seeing double, because each collage has two versions of the same frame. All of the nudity was filtered blue, so I did one large capture with the original tint from the film, and one smaller version without the filter. I think you can add this to the list of movies where the stars really got it on. McKenzie appears to be doing the nasty, but not in her sex scene with Crowe. She did another sex scene with Daniel Pollock. Check out the top right frame in collage #7. In the film it was presented with a particularly dark blue flter, so my light adjustments left an overcontrasted picture, but one which nonetheless seems to reveal Mr Happy in an especially fun place, and tilted at an especially welcoming angle. Perhaps it's an illusion, but it seems to me that she is riding on the log flume ride in the water park d'amour."

Hey, Junior. Coming to you from a remote site. Colorado. In the Rockies. Snow everywhere. Hope these bits make it through.|
A mixture of babes, who share in common one thing: mega-hooters. Have been scanning a few old pinup mags and some body building thingies. The pinups come with natural forms of gigantomammaries, the fitness babes with unnatural ones. What we call robohooters in these here parts.
The pinup babes include Arlene Bell, Clyda Mason, Diane Poppos and Nilli Willis (who split in half and became a short-lived lip-syncing duet); the fitness babes are April Hunter and Marla Duncan. I am told that Marla posed for the mag Leg Show a while back; am looking for a copy to scan for the interested folk out there in Scoopy land.
(P.S. Before leaving suddenly to take advantage of the weather, I burned myself a CD of the all stuff I've sent to you, Junior. Have mis-placed a couple of things so the count is not perfectly accurate, but get this: almost 200 Mbytes and just short of 1400 separate files. And that, when you look at the Funhouse and Encyclopedia as a whole, is just a drop in the bucket. So many babes, so little time.)

||Wow! I'm a happy camper. I didn't know Joely was going to do more nudity. A clear breast in #1, and buns in #2, and did I mention it's Joely? So her face is not too hard to look at either. From the new GQ-UK, good stuff scanned by Skease
||all of them in bodypaint, from Jedilein. The one of Gehlen is especially cool.
