"Night Call Nurses"

Night Call Nurses (1972) day two -- Our nurses in this third Corman nurse film, for the first time, don't live together, and don't live in a beach town. Mittie Lawrence is the woman of color, falls for an ex con, and helps him break a black prisoner activist out of the hospital, after the assistant warden shoots him and tells the world it was a suicide attempt. Patty Byrne plays the brunette nurse. She is seeing a doctor, and is also in a therapy group with him, run by a very manipulative therapist, who plays mind games with her. The blonde nurse is played by Alana Stewart, who falls for a patient, who is a shit kicker/long haul trucker, who freaked out from too much speed.

Unknown 2, the group therapy Unknown 2, shows breasts, as do Byrne and Lawrence. Stewart shows breasts and buns. By now, we have a clearly established formula. There will be three nurses, a woman of color, a blonde and a brunette. Two of them will have good other sex relationships, and the third will get screwed. This time, we have a generous dose of humor, such as the older psych patient who is always flashing, and the head nurse isn't nearly as much of a bitch.

IMDB readers have this at 2.9 of 10. The transfer is 4/3, but is not that bad, and the film is technically acceptable, unlike Private Duty Nurses. The plot is a little hard to follow in spots, mainly due to a rather odd technique. There is voice over dialogue from two characters during a montage of their evening together, which ends with the scene where they are actually having the conversation. I found it disorienting. Also, the group therapy sub-plot just suddenly started, with no lead-in, warning.or explanation. Acting ranges from very good (the young trucker) to ok. As far as I am concerned, this is a solid entry in the nurse genre. C.

    "The Young Nurses"

    The Young Nurses (1973) is the fourth of the Corman naughty nurse films, and will be the last one I do, as I did Candy Strip Nurses a few months ago when it was released. We again have three nurses, are back at the LA beaches (in this case, Venice and Marina Del Rey) and the head nurse is a bitch again. Angela Gibbs, as the nurse of color, does outcall from the hospital, and gets involved in investigating a drug that is being sold illegally, and killed one of her patients. Her investigation includes an ex boyfriend, who took her to Baja, and bought her a pinata to bring back full of cocaine.

    The brunette nurse is played by Ashley Porter, who is a doctor wannabe, and frequently exceeds her authority, ordering treatments that require a doctor. She also volunteers at a women's self help free clinic, where they can't understand why they are broke. It never occurs to them that free clinics don't make money.

    The blonde nurse is played by Jean Manson. As the film starts, she is sunbathing topless on a hoby cat, and the guy in the next boat over hits on her. She stands up to put her top back on, providing such a good view that he is hit in the head by the boom and nocked into the water while staring. She dives in and saves him. By the time they get out of the ambulance at the hospital, he has a bleeding hole in his back, but the head injury is mysteriously gone. They, of course, fall in love, despite his overbearing father.

    Gibbs shows a breast in a blurry down-blouse scene. Porter shows breasts, buns and brief full-frontal. Manson shows everything, including a lengthy full frontal, frolicking in the surf. Sally Kirkland shows breasts through a bra, and Terrill Maguire shows buns at the clinic, KImberly Hyde shows breasts as a candy stripper who screws a rock star, and several unknowns show breasts and bush seen by Gibbs in a drug induced haze. Thus, we have a nipple count of 14 this time. Both Hyde and Kirkland also appear in Candy Stripe Nurses.

    Marina Del Rey is now an exclusive high rent community, but, at the time this film was being made, was just being developed. There were still beach cottages lining the beach access, and the beach was not well used. I personally fished in the surf there, and nude sunbathing was not uncommon. The film claims to have been digitally remastered. There are not many scratched or flakes, but the entire film has color shifter to a hideous green, and they did no color correction. Also, there are lots of focus problems, especially in boat scenes on the water.

    IMDB readers have it at 4.3 of 10, but with only 5 votes, the score doesn't mean much. This is a faithful entry in the genre with plenty of nudity, and, for the most part, reasonably well filmed. The plot was pretty tired, and the few attempts at humor fell rather flat. With a better transfer, this would be a C, but, in its green version, it is a D+.

    Leaving Las Vegas (1995)

    Nic Cage won an Oscar for his portrayal of a failed movie studio exec who decides to drink himself to death in Las Vegas. Elisabeth Shue was the other main character, a prostitute who establishes a relationship with Cage. Their doomed love story formed the basis for this exercise in noir Vegas-style.

    I know it doesn't sound very good on paper. Don't be fooled by that. It is richly drawn, with a perfectly realized Vegas backdrop.

    Mike Figgis was the auteur, having directed, and also having written the screenplay and the music. This film was a success both artistically and financially. Critics liked it, it won Oscars, and it made a lot of money. I am writing this eight years later, and Mike Figgis is still trying to prove that it was not a fluke of some kind. Here are the IMDB ratings for Leaving Las Vegas and his subsequent films.

    1. (7.49) - Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
    2. (6.48) - Timecode (2000)
    3. (5.89) - Miss Julie (1999)
    4. (5.80) - One Night Stand (1997)
    5. (5.07) - Loss of Sexual Innocence, The (1999)
    6. (4.90) - Hotel (2001)



    "Scoop- Emy Coligado plays Piama Tananahaakna (Frances' wife) in Malcolm in the Middle, and IMDb lists one of her credits as Oriental Blossoms in Asian Pride Porn. Does anyone out there have any caps of her from this movie?"

    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.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Only Celebrities And Cockroaches Will Survive - A company called Secure Cars Worldwide can barely keep up with orders for armored cars and limos. Ford, GM and BMW are also introducing cars that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, but are bulletproof, grenade-proof, and in case of gas attack, hermetically-sealed. They're selling to CEOs and Hollywood stars afraid of terrorism and rappers afraid of drive-by shootings.

  • Hold on! They're terrorist-proof, not rapper-proof!
  • Hollywood stars are so demanding...They want these cars to be convertibles.
  • Now, Hollywood stars can take terrorist-proof limos to the rallies where they tell us there's no need to fight terrorists.
  • I'd rather face a gas attack than be in a hermetically-sealed car with Russell Crowe.

    This Marriage Needs A Tune-Up - A study by Vanderbilt University and the University of Colorado found that people who are really into cars use the same part of their brains to recognize car models that they use to recognize faces. What's more, when asked to recognize both simultaneously, they recognized the cars faster than the people. This means that a real motor nut can identify, say, a BMW Z8 quicker than he can his own wife.

  • That's because he spends a lot more time thinking about BMW Z8s.
  • Ironically, she married him because he had a BMW Z8.
  • This took two universities? Jay Leno's wife could've told you that.

    Fairy Tail - New York magazine reports that "Joe Millionaire" runner-up Sarah Kozar, who proudly noted that there was no nudity in her fetish films, agreed to appear topless in Playboy for $500,000. She turned down $1 million to pose completely nude

  • She didn't want to have bare feet this time.
  • See! She TOLD us she wouldn't sell her body for money!
  • Now Evan gets the best of both worlds: he's dating the good girl, but he gets to see the bad girl's breasts.
