Being an American from the Midwest, my knowledge of all things Italian basically ends with Ferrari, the Vatican, and Pizza. Not that I am and idiot, just "unworldly". I've seen a lot of this country, but I've never been anywhere else accept for Canada. (Which of course is just like Wisconsin, so that doesn't count.) However, in the darkest depths of slumber, I visit those far away places I've only seen on TV, and in my dreams, Italy is filled with hot chicks like these!
Except of course for Natalia who is from Spain.

First let me start with French actress Andréa Ferréol in the 1983 movie "Le Battant" starring Alain Delon. At bottom right you can see Andréa checking out what Fun House readers already got to see in one of my previous contributions on Annie Girardot in "Traitement de choc" ( 1972 ). Maybe she wants to see if something has changed over the past 11 years ! Andréa might best be remembered outside France for her role in the legendary movie "La grande Bouffe" by Marco Ferreri ( if my memory serves me right ). Note to Scoopy : wouldn't this film make an interesting item for the members' section? Maybe Frodo has a copy.

Here is Aglaia Szyszkowitz in the 1998 film "2 Männer, 2 Frauen, 4 Probleme". There isn't much to say and to see about this flick. The two lovers end up going for a swim in front of St. Mark's Square in Venice ! And at top and middle right you can see the specific risks involved when you're a delivery man in Venice, especially when you forget to tie up your boat.

Also playing an important part in that German film is Flemish actress Hilde Van Mieghem. This actress, whose face seems marked by life, shows even more in the 1994 Dutch movie "Wildgroei". Wildgoei is Dutch for wild growth but I don't know if that refers to her southern parts.

Thanks to Andante and Scoopy as a go-between I can show you an actress who usually doesn't show anything. I'm sure Fun House readers from Holland will like these caps of Babette Van Veen who shows a nipple in the 1995 Flemish movie Brylcream Boulevard. Who still uses Brylcream anyway ? I think the last of the big Brylcream users was ex Nato secretary-general Willy Claes and look how he ended up. Because of the Agusta helicopters affair he had to resign, was convicted to a suspended jail sentence of 5 years, stripped of his civil and political rights for the same period and faces a 200 million Belgian francs fine.

Scoop's note: I remember Brylcreem - "a little dab'll do ya". I am kinda surprised to see that they named a street after it in Belgium. Ah, well, we have the corner of Hollywood and Vine, Ghent has the famous corner of Brylcreem and Wildroot, where Charlemagne used to tell his troops that they could still keep their hair in place, even after a hard battle. Just to the north of Flanders, Rotterdam has the corner of Bardahl and Burma Shave, where Erasmus, thne the greatest scholar in the world, would expound on both epistemology and cheesy commercials.

I'll end with Flemish actress Anne Somers in the popular series "Spoed". Anne is a nurse on the night shift of the emergency unit of a hospital. Here we can see her frolicking with a doctor in a spare moment. The doctor's name is Blijlevens which translates as Happy Life and he really does live up to his name in this series. While they're at it viewers also get to see the bottom of a poster for Médecins sans Frontières ( Artsen zonder Grenzen in Dutch ). But look what happens amidst their joy in the final collage! Dr. Gijsbrecht, Dr. Blijlevens's superior, enters the room and he is fuming. This difficult and severe man punishes the nurse by sending her to another wing of the hospital but takes no measures at all against the doctor because he thinks this one can't be missed ! And finally, does Anne wear panties or not in the bottom right picture? Who can tell for sure ?

Today Re-cap takes us all the way back to 1979, to visit one of the bustiest sororities ever with these caps from "H.O.T.S." Probably the only movie I can think of that dares to be so bold as to feature both daring cinematic elements...topless skydiving, and strip football!
While digging for info about the girls from "H.O.T.S." I found the usual "never worked again", or "bit parts in B-movies" answers that I expected. However, there was one bit of info that surprised me in 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon sort of way...Lindsay Bloom appeared in 3 episodes of "The Dukes of Hazard". OK, so there is nothing too exciting about that. But what is exciting is that there is a new Dukes movie on the way! "The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard In Hollywood"! I can't believe it! According to the CBS web site, it will air on Friday, May 18th at 8pm.
Here is the 4-1-1 directly from CBS....

"The stars from the action-packed hit CBS series The Dukes Of Hazzard reunite for more wild high-jinks when they roll into Tinsletown. In this movie, the Dukes, Cooter, Cletus, and Roscoe roar off to Hollywood to raise some fast cash for a much-needed Hazzard hospital. On their side: country music tapes featuring now-famous singers from past Hazzard hoe-downs and dreams of making a profitable CD. Against them: a crooked businessman and a shady music promoter."

"In the Realm of the Senses", from Tuna

I have discussed this Japanese film many times. A strange combination of high art, hard-core porn, and explicit violence. Imagine The Seventh Seal with blowjobs and dismemberment. It had difficulty getting distribution in both Europe and America, although for different reasons. Many people consider it a masterpiece,and even its detractors agree that it is unique, for good or ill. I can't remember any other case where a filmmaker tried to create a great masterpiece with explicit sex scenes. Anyway, here it is in all of its splendor. thumbnails Tatsuya Fuji (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26)


"Cool Hand Luke", from Johnny Web

"What we have here is a failure to communicate". Speaking of movies which feature eggs prominently, here's the Paul Newman Classic. Although there is no explicit nudity, the car wash scene is generally considered one of the sexiest ever filmed. Joy Harmon (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
