(I didn't create any of this material. It's up
here in my section so I can discuss it a bit.)
Somewhere in the period between her success as a model and her success as an
actress, Diane Kruger was an aspiring actress who worked in some crappy grade-B
films alongside performers like "Christope Lambert" (Lahm-BARE), as the star of
Highlander is known in his crappy foreign-language films. (Christophe is his
real birth name. By the way, how the hell was that guy married to Diane Lane?)
Anyway, although Kruger (nee: Heidkruger) is German, she speaks perfect
French and English, thus allowing her to make crappy movies in many languages
until somebody noticed her. Here are two of the crappiest. These were both
released in late 2002, and may have been her first two movies, but I can't say
for sure because another of her films was also released in the fourth quarter of
2002, and I'm not sure which ones she made first.
Here she is in The Piano
Player (aka The Target; samples below.) This is the film to see if you've
always wondered what her asshole looks like, as pictured in the second pic. Come
to think of it, there is also an asshole in the third pic. He's standing on the right.
here she is in Whatever You Say (aka Mon Idole; samples below)
This is a pretty big deal. There are plenty of DVDs of this film. I think I
have two or three different ones sitting around my office, but every single one
that I have seen is missing the scene in which Linda Blair is raped by Dean
Wormer. Like the Kelly McGillis scene from Cat Chaser, this
scene has simply disappeared from DVDs.
I'm not surprised that it has been cut. It's pretty nasty stuff.
Nobody plays an evil authority figure better than Dean Wormer. Hey, he's Dean
Fucking Wormer, fer chrissakes. Here he plays the warden of a women's
prison who uses the innocent new inmate as a punching bag, then knocks
her out cold before he fucks her. Of course, we don't really care about any of
that. The key point is that he rips Linda Blair's bra off while he's roughing
her up, and this film represents her first topless film appearance. While we
still don't have this scene in good quality, we do now have a VHS rip, and
here it is.
