"Les Folies d'Élodie"

Les Folies d'Élodie (1981) is an early French soft core that is nearly mild enough to be a titty flick. It has been released under the names "The Naughty Blue Knickers" and "Secrets of the Satin Blues." It is based on a French novel, which has been used for US hard core films as well. The story is supposedly narrated by a pair of blue panties acquired by Elodie (Marcha Grant), and they find their way from her to her daughter Corinne (Charlotte Walior), and her maid Rose (Caroline Aguilar). Along the way, these women and more have sex with each other, and with token men. THe two most important plot threads involve Elodie's boy friend trying to get her to try anal sex, and Corinne's relationship with Elodie's godson.

The three major actresses show pretty much everything in multiple scenes, and several unknowns also expose body parts. 8 IMDb readers have this at 2.4 of 10. The transfer quality was abysmal, in fact, the trailer for the film on the same DVD was far better. The English dubbing was also very poor. This, combined with a weak story and a lot of dark scenes made for a very long watch. 80's sex flicks are my thing, but this one was painful to watch. E+

    Other crap:

    • NY Post says: Adrien Brody's success is going down poorly with Roman Polanski. The man Roman plucked from obscurity to star in his movie about the Holocaust did not thank this director during his lengthy impassioned acceptance speech. Polanski declares: "Never ever will I work with him again."
    • what can you say - the Kama Sutra online
    • Halle Berry has reportedly turned down the use of a body double for a 19 woman nude scene in her next film, Gothika. You go, girl.
    • remember the two guys who found God reincarnated as a talking carp? WWN has the first interview. No, not with the guys, with a talking carp. The fish likes to be called "Paul". The Funhouse wonders, "Is there a Mrs. Paul?" Does Mrs Paul have any little fish sticks?
    • looking for obscure music? Rhino Handmade is your company. They still press (GASP!) vinyl records. How about Tiny Tim Live at the Royal Albert Hall or The Complete Recordings of Jack Webb (his two albums re-released as a CD with 25 tracks )
    • The Iraqis favorite actor - Steven Seagal. Why am I not surprised?
    • gallery of hoax websites. One of my favorites - Kresky - a TV show a lot like Miami Vice, except starring people even more imaginary than Philip Michael Thomas. Very elaborate hoax, with episode summaries, etc.
    • Best.InformationMinister.Ever. When Saeed al-Sahhaf told reporters yesterday, from a hotel rooftop, that there were no American troops in Baghdad, the same reporters could actually see, over his shoulder, four Bradleys parked at a nearby presidential palace. Yesterday, he accused the allied troops of tossing exploding pencils to Iraqi children. I hope this guy doesn't get killed, because he is the next big comedy star of Branson, Missouri.
      • Also mentioned in the article: although Saddam can afford Louis XIV furniture, he never buys movies at retail. The allied soldiers were able to find only pirated copies of  "Hanoi Hilton," "The Assassination of Trotsky," and "Les Misérables".  That Saddam is a huge Liam Neeson fan.
      • Top 10 Statements by Saeed al-Sahhaf
      1. There are no American soldiers on our soil. In fact, as we speak, our tanks are parked at the White House, and we have forced the infidels to validate our parking tickets
      2. Smoking Iraqi Cigarettes is not at all harmful for your health, and I personally smoke thousands of Saddam Lights per day.
      3. This will be the year for the L.A. Clippers.
      4. Jason Priestly is not too old to be playing a high school kid in Baghdad 90210
      5. There are no chemical weapons. We only keep those suits around for filming outer space movies, like that fine Solaris, which was written by Saddam, may he rule 1000 years, and write as many masterpieces.
      6. That military camp with the commercial airliner fuselage is not for training terrorists. We filmed View from the Top there, which was written and directed by Saddam, and starred the very fine Gwyneth Paltrow, who found Saddam much more glorious than Brad Pitt.
      7. Elvis is not dead. In fact, he has moved to Iraq because of our superior way of life, and he packs them in every night at Saddam's Palace and The Sands. "Hunka, hunka burnin' love" was written about our glorious leader, Saddam, may he rule for 1000 years, and please as many women.
      8. The American soldiers are all homosexual Jewish pedophiles who intend to rape our sons, then circumcise them. They won't dare attack our grown men because they are afraid of our superior might and large penises.
      9. The cowardly American pilots have only bombed three children's hospitals, an institution for retarded people, our baby food manufacturing facilities, and our shelters for adorable newborn kitties and puppies!
      10. Pete Rose never bet on baseball




    • I see that Tuna capped Melvin & Howard today.  Apparently, the production company seems to have cropped off a significant part of the bottom part of the frame in the DVD.  In the VHS version of this film, you can see Mary Steenburgen's pubic hair.

    You are correct. I mentioned the problem in the review at I wrote: "Mary Steenburgen's nude scene is one of my favorites, although it's in funky strip-club lighting. She quits her job as a stripper by tearing off her costume completely, and walking out of the club stark naked. Unfortunately, Steenburgen's full-frontal nudity, which was visible in the full-screen VHS version of the film, could not be seen in the widescreen DVD, which shows breasts and buns only."


    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 RDO:

    Here are a whole bunch of caps from the 1982 movie "Summer lovers". I confess to having stiched some of them together from several frames, but either way, the end result is the same...not a great movie, but plenty of great nudity!

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    A Cancer On Society - In a class action lawsuit filed by Illinois smokers, Philip Morris was ordered to pay $10.1 billion in damages, and $1.8 billion in legal fees to the plaintiff attorneys. If it's not overturned on appeal, the smokers will get $11,000 to $50,000 each, and their law firm will average $13,100 per hour for everyone on their staff who did anything, including non-lawyers. That's an Illinois state record, and it's prompted critics to ask whether lawyers can ever be awarded too much money.

  • Lawyers responded, "No," and demanded a gag order on critics.
  • So the lawyers get billions, and the smokers get cigarette money.
  • Thank goodness we're taking the money away from greedy, unscrupulous tobacco companies and giving it to lawyers!
  • If Abe Lincoln were an Illinois lawyer today, he wouldn't run for president...Too much of a pay cut.

    Blame A Vast Writing Conspiracy - According to Matt Drudge, publisher Simon & Schuster is "dismayed" that Hillary Clinton's memoir isn't finished. They gave her an $8 million book deal, one of the biggest in history, and it's supposed to be at the printer next month. But advance sales are lagging, and she hasn't even submitted a manuscript yet, or even decided on a title.

  • Call it "Afterthought."
  • How about "How To Make $8 Million With No Effort Whatsoever"?
  • She needs to beat her ghostwriter harder.
  • $8 million for nothing? Lawyers CAN be awarded too much money!
  • Think that's bad? Bill's memoir is still just a bunch of notes on cocktail napkins.
