Hi, y'all. Scoopy here today. Junior has the weekend off to par-tay, and since I'm Mr Excitement as always, I'm sitting at the computer typing. Schmutzfink leads things off today, and his theme is Yanks this week.
Valerie Bertinelli in "Pancho Barnes". Very little to see, but Bertinelli's career features exiguous flesh, so this is practically gyno by her standards.
Blair Brown in "Continental Divide". Any woman who does love scenes with John Belushi without cracking up, well, she's my kinda woman. I wonder how many times they had to film it before Belushi would be serious.
Bo Derek in "Shattered Image". There's my girl. I think I have mentioned that I have met her - sat next to her on a plane trip from Miami to Lima, Peru. She is just as nice as can be, and the next moring she said hi to me by name in the hotel lobby, with all the Mobil guys present, which earned me my Peruano nickname, "El Marques de los Grifos". (The Marquis of the Nozzles - it's inside double-entendre humor from the oil bidness, because in Peruvian slang "grifos" also means gas stations.) OK, be that as it may, what I really wanted to talk about was Bo's latest crusade. She is now raising some eyebrows in Hollywood by saying that she can't get any work because she's a Republican, and the industry is completely dominated by the liberal ethos, and has no room for conservative outsiders. Well, all that may be true, but I have to say in all fairness that there are many reasons who Bo is not working. Bo, I must be your greatest admirer, but I think those other factors might be just as important as your politics. You could convert now and turn into a combination of Jerry Brown and Abbie Hoffman, and you still ain't gonna steal any roles from Jolie or Julianne Moore. Sorry to be the one to break it to you.
Angie Everhart in "Silent Screams". This rose-petal scene sure looks a lot the scene she did in "Another 8 1/2 Weeks".
Michelle Joyner in "Shadow of the Past"
Taryn Power Her father, Tyrone Power, was once considered the handsomest man in the world. She got some looks from the gene pool, but didn't inherit his career. This was pretty much her highlight reel in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger".
Mariah O'Brien in "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers". I thought mini-me was the curse of Mike Myers.'
Betsy Russell in "Delta Heat". Looking awesome in a string bikini.
Betsy Russell in "Delta Heat". She ditches the bikini to show off her buns.
Alonna Shaw in "Double Impact".

Great match-up of talent here. Hugo is a great vidcapper and collage artist, and he is especially good with the more artistic stuff with elegant lighting and muted colors. These collages of Julianne Moore from The End of the Affair were exactly right for his style, and especially the first two stand as some of the best ever in this field.

Major Gunns
She's now a rasslin' icon, but she was formerly known as Tylene Buck, nude model and fitness babe. Zellar and DesireScans are two logos used by the same guy, and he has done quite a few of the good Major.

RDO is one of our main men, and thsi time he went after the DVD version of "The Pit and the Pendulum", which is the name on the box, but the movie title says "The Inquisitor". RDO points out that it bears no resemblance to the Poe story except for one torture device.

Jennifer Young. Remember how we were talking about how boredom was considered a mental disease in the 50's. If that were really true, her dad (Gig Young) would have been the Bull Goose Loony. Although the concept defies human comprehension, he was kind of a grade B Roger Moore. Although I'm not sure "B" is the right letter here. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Stella Tennant paparazzi. I assume she's preggers.
Drew Barrymore doing a scuba scene for the unreleased but already immortal cinema classic, "Charlie's Angels". Ingmar Bergman and Speilberg wanted to direct, but they shot them down and gave it to a newcomer. I hear the rumor around town is that this may even be better than The Mod Squad. Man, you know it has to be good because the writer, Ryan Rowe, is the same guy who wrote the TV sequel to The Love Bug, and the TV remake of The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes. Next stop for this lad: Proust.
silly stuff
From an actual newspaper contest where entrants ages 4 to 15 were asked to imitate "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey." GREAT STUFF!

I believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I don't have any clean laundry because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life? --Age 15

It sure would be nice if we got a day off for the president's birthday, like they do for the queen. Of course, then we would have a lot of people voting for a candidate born on July 3 or December 26, just for the long weekends. --Age 8

I often wonder how come John Tesh isn't as popular a singer as some people think he should be. Then, I remember it's because he stinks. --Age 15

My younger brother asked me what happens after we die. I told him we get buried under a bunch of dirt and worms eat our bodies. I guess I should have told him the truth--that most of us go to hell and burn eternally-- but I didn't want to upset him. --Age 10

When I go to heaven, I want to see my grandpa again. But he better have lost the nose hair and the old-man smell. --Age 5

I once heard the voice of God. It said "Vrrrrmmmmm." Unless it was just a lawn mower. --Age 11

Often, when I am reading a good book, I stop and thank my teacher. That is, I used to, until she got an unlisted number. --Age 15

It would be terrible if the Red Cross Bloodmobile got into an accident. No, wait. That would be good because if anyone needed it, the blood would be right there. --Age 5

Once, I wept for I had no shoes. Then I came upon a man who had no feet. So I took his shoes. I mean, it's not like he really needed them, right? -Age 15

If we could just get everyone to close their eyes and visualize world peace for an hour, imagine how serene and quiet it would be for that short period before the looting started. --Age 15

"Lovers and Liars", from Tuna

This wasn't exactly the high point of Goldie Hawn's career. A "spaghetti comedy", actually called "Viaggio con Anita", filmed in Europe in the late 70's with all French and Italian actors except Goldie, and originally screened in the Italian language. Well, you know how these films work. Everyone speaks in his native language, and they dub in as many as necessary for distribution to alternate markets. For the record, Goldie's collages include no nudity at all, nothing even close.

"The Fabulous Baker Boys", from Tuna

Tuna's comments: "The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) is in my top hundred films. It is a character driven drama/comedy that is so compelling that it holds my interest even after seeing it several times. There are several reasons for this, not the least of which is Michelle Pfeiffer. It was no surprise to me that she was gorgeous. It was also no surprise that she could act. It was a huge surprise that she sings (well enough that I bought the soundtrack).

It is the story of two brothers (the younger one with talent, the older one with drive) who have been playing a two piano lounge act for 15 years. The older brother is happy with the regular paycheck, but the younger brother has dreams of using his creativity as a jazz pianist. As the popularity of standards declines (and with it, their careers), they decide to add a female vocalist to the group. After 31 applicants that couldn't carry a tune, including a great support role by Jennifer Tilly, they have given up, and in stumbles Michelle 1 1/2 hours late. She breaks a heel on the way in and her first words are "oh shit." She convinces them to give her a shot anyway, then blows them away with her voice. She joins the group, is a huge hit, and life is better for the brothers 'til Michelle and the younger brother become intimate.

Another of the reasons I love this film is that Writer/first-time director Steven Kloves cast it perfectly. He used Jeff and Beau Bridges (real life brothers) as the male leads. I am sure their real life relationship added to the screen chemistry. Both had some musical training. Songwriter Dave Grusen not only wrote the score, arranged the standard tunes and played the Jeff Bridges piano pieces, but he taped his hands so the Bridges could study hand position enough to be convincing. Seems like Grusen shows up in the credits of many of the new films I enjoy. The Fabulous Baker Boys would have swept the Oscars most years, but was up against Driving Miss Daisy and Pretty Woman for best picture/best actress/best screenplay and The Little Mermaid for music. The British managed to give best actress both to Michelle and Jessica Tandy -- one for humor, the other for drama.

Michelle kept her clothes on in this film. The 12 images are mostly legs and cleavage. I included three or four shots of a classic scene where Michelle is laying on top of a piano singing the Glory of Love, and seducing Jeff Bridges. The only exposure came from Terri Treas, who shows a nipple in a short sequence before the opening credits".
