"Women in Cages"

Women in Cages (1971) was produced by Roger Corman, and used much of the same cast as The Big Doll House. This is one of the films that caused Hill to switch The Big Bird Cage to a spoof, and change most of the cast. It is interesting to me that none of the three books I have about Corman even mention this one. IMDB readers say 3.2 of 10, which is about what this one deserves. For a plot and nudity review, revisit Scoopy's review. You might remember, this is the one where Pam Greer is the evil warden, the main star doesn't get naked, nobody shows bush, and only extras show buns. On the strength of Greer's performance, and the medieval torture devices, I will give this D+. Come on guys, you can't do a good WIP film without bush and buns.

    "Easy"

    Easy (1978) is a hard core from the classic era directed by Anthony Spinelli ( It's Called Murder, Baby / Talk Dirty to Me / Vista Valley P.T.A. / and 92 other adult films) and starring Jesie St James (Vista Valley P.T.A. / Talk Dirty to Me / Insatiable). St. James is a high school teacher as the film opens. When a student seduces her in the classroom easily, then sends a friend to her home, she wisely realizes that teaching is not going to be a permanent career. She has numerous other sexual adventures, each time showing that she is "Easy." At a dinner party with her fiancee, she ends up in the bedroom with another guest. The other women, (Desiree Cousteau and Laurien Dominique end up in other rooms with someone other than their spouse.

    Georgina Spelvin appears as a jealous wife who rapes St. James, in the only girl/girl action. This is a hardcore, so we see everything from all of the women. There are a few hard core images near the end of each set, with gyno shots, penetration, etc. For those who want to avoid them, skip Cousteau 6, 7 and St. James 39, 40.

    IMDB readers have this at 6.9 of 10, which is very high for a porno. I give this the maximum of C+. The DVD is the best transfer I have seen yet of classic era porn, which permitted much larger than normal images for the genre.

    MOVIES:

    Exit to Eden finally made it to DVD, as Tuna noted last week. It was issued on a 4:3 DVD with no meaningful features, and is a poor movie, but it does have copious nudity, of which I touched only the highlights.

     

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

    Today's flick...."Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight" (1995).

    This was the first "Tales from the Crypt" movie, and unfortunately, not even remotely close to being as much fun as "Bordello of Blood". In the opening sequence not related to the rest of the movie, John Larroquette has a fun little cameo that should have turned into the same silliness that Dennis Miller enjoyed in "Bordello". But sadly they opted for the "we just want to cash in on the franchise, it doesn't matter if the movie is any good" route and produced something that would get a picture of the Crypt Keeper and the letters HBO on the cover of Fangoria magazine.

    The "plot":
    Well apparently before the big guy said "let there be light" a whole bunch of demons lived on Earth and had 7 keys that, when all together and aligned properly, could harness all of the power of the universe. Pardon me if I invoke some Capt. Kirk logic, but if God created everything, including the universe, why would he have created these keys if they possessed the power to destroy him? But enough of that...

    Billy Zane is the bad guy (and main demon) and he's after the good guy, William Sadler (best known for his role as "Death" in "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey"), who has the last key not in Demon hands. Sadler ends up at a small hotel with Lowell from Wings, the horribly unfunny guy who did the voice of Roger Rabbit, Jada Pinkett Smith, and the best equipped Dentist in the ARMY, John Schuck. Needless to say, the stars all line up or some crap, and the demons come out and start killing everybody.

    I give Zane credit for being a fun evil guy, but it wasn't enough to save this movie. By the way, check out the vidcap I made of him in full Hunter S. Thompson look-a-like mode.


    The Nudity:
    In "Tales" fashion, there's a good amount of nice and gratuitous boobs. A great example of someone applying Scoopian unity #24....

    "If you are filming a movie that will get you an r rating for violence and language, load up on breasts. Think of it this way....If you're already stuck with the r-rating, the tits are free!"



    • Brenda Bakke, plays a hooker in the small hotel. She looked great, but her breast exposure was extremely brief as she does the deed with Lowell from "Wings".

    • Chasey Lain, the famous porn star went topless and actually had a few lines in the party babe fantasy scene. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    • Assorted Party Babes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    • Peggy Trentini, a familiar chest, errrr face from other B-movies appears topless in the opening non-related-to-the-movie scene.

    • The Evil Billy Zane, or is it Johnny Depp in "Fear and Loathing"?

    Outrage as lycee pupils pose naked
    By Kim Willsher in Paris

    TEENAGE pupils at one of France's most prestigious schools have provoked national uproar by posing nude for the cover of their student magazine.

    The headmaster of the elite Henri IV lycee in Paris - a 200-year-old institution renowned for grooming many leading French figures - has now banned the publication following a barrage of complaints and even a threat of legal action from one shocked parent.

    In a move that has sorely tested France's liberal attitude towards sex and nudity, five Henri IV pupils lined up for the camera with only a strip of opaque tape to protect their modesty.

    An editorial written by the models - three boys and two girls - in the 28-page magazine explained that they had deliberately set out to shock their readers. "We chose this cover precisely because of its ability to make people feel uneasy," they said.

    Their magazine Ravaillac is a new publication produced by the school's pupils and is named after Henri IV's assassin, Franois Ravaillac, who was executed in 1610. It contains articles about pornography, prostitution, Aids, abortion and homosexuality.

    It is the risque cover, however, that has stirred up a storm at the school, where the former president Georges Pompidou once taught and whose alumni include the philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone Weil and the current defence minister Alain Richard.

    Patrice Corre, the headmaster, said that following complaints from parents, teachers and pupils he was forced to suspend distribution within the school's precincts.

    "I'm sure I'll be accused of being a prude, but so be it," he said. "If I had not done something, people would have asked if there was still a pilot in the plane."

    He said he had acted to "protect youngsters" at the school, whose pupils are aged between 11 and 18.

    The five models, who are preparing to take their Baccalaureat exams this summer, had said that copies of the magazine would be sold only to those over 18. They now fear disciplinary action. They say they have been subjected to "pressure and threats" from the school authorities - an allegation denied by Mr Corre, who says he has no intention of expelling them.

    The five have sought legal advice from the national association of school magazines, which defends such publications. The organisation has backed their editorial judgment.

    "If this magazine is a problem, it's a problem with the attitude of the adults, not the young," said Alain Weber, the association's lawyer. "If there is legal action it will be a dream to defend."

    Thomas Roge, a spokesman for France's education ministry, said the matter should be settled by "dialogue and negotiation".

    The row has led to accusations of Anglo-Saxon-style prudishness in a country better known for its enlightened attitude towards nudity and sex. One Henri IV pupil stated: "The magazine cover is hardly pornographic. It's just five students making a point."

    Ravaillac's 17-year-old editor, who gives his name only as Jonathan, admitted that the row had done wonders for the new magazine's circulation.

    Despite the headmaster's ban, the second issue with the nudes on its cover has sold 600 copies at ? (61p) each - double the number of the pupil's first issue.
