Marilyn Joi in Hammer (1972)


Misty Rowe in Goodbye, Norma Jean (1976)

Scoop's notes:

This was a Monroesploitation film directed by the notorious schlockmeister Larry Buchanan. It's rated a paltry 2.5 at IMDb, but that's nowhere near the bottom of Buchanan's filmography. It has to compete with such cinema classics as

  • Zontar, Thing From Venus

  • In The Year 2889

  • The Eye Creatures

  • Curse of the Swamp Creature

  • Mars Needs Women

Many of you may remember Misty Rowe from Hee Haw, on which she was a regular for many years. I never watched more than 30 seconds of Hee Haw at a time, so I don't recall seeing Misty there, but I remember her fondly as Maid Marian in the short-lived TV series "When Things Were Rotten," a comical version of Robin Hood, as filtered through the distorted lens of Mel Brooks.

After that I recall seeing her from time to time on Love Boat, Love American Style, Fantasy Island, and other shows of that ilk. This is the first time I've seen her in Goodbye, Norma Jean

Film Clips

Debra Harrison-Lowe in House of the Rising Sun (2011) in 720p. See below.

Laura Chiatti in Manuale d'amore 3 (2011), this time in 1080p. See below.

And the incomparable Monica Bellucci in Manuale d'amore 3 in 1080p. See below.

Ludivine Sagnier stark naked (and Diane Kruger in a wet bra) in Pieds Nus Sur Les Limaces (2010), aka "Lily Sometimes." We have to have lots of samples for this one! See below.

Amy Esacove in Amanda (2009). See below.

Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez in Blue Crush (2002).

It's sexy bathing suit time, but the only nudity is a very brief look at the top half of Bosworth's butt, and that is at the very end of the clip. See below.

You might be interested in how those excellent surfing sequences in Blue Crush were created. Wikipedia says:

"All the surfing takes place in the ocean; no green screens or tanks were used.

While the actresses did learn to surf, some of the more difficult surfing scenes were not only dangerous, but impossible for them to perform. Some of the world's top female surfers, including ones featured in the original magazine article, surfed the larger waves for the film. The actresses' faces were later digitally superimposed on the surfers. Michelle Rodriguez did all her own jet ski stunts, including towing Kate Bosworth's stunt double out to the biggest waves.

Actor/Pro Surf Instructor John Philbin was Bosworth's trainer for the film. Philbin starred in the film North Shore many years prior which was shot on the island of Oahu at the world famous North Shore.

Former surfing world champion Tom Carroll appears early in the film as a surfer with a cut eye (seen in today's clip). According to producer Brian Grazer, this is a real injury —Carroll had wiped out on the reef just seconds earlier— and it made Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez nervous about going in the water."

Pilar Lopez de Ayala, Carolina Bona, and Manuela Arcuri in Juana la Loca (2001). See below.

Daniele Gaubert in Camille 2000, a Radley Metzger classic softcore from 1969, seen for the first time in 1080p. Radley was a highbrow pornographer who studied the films of Welles and others, and read the works of high-toned European intellectuals like Pirandello and Samuel Beckett. His films are usually marked by excellent composition and top-notch production values. They can be considered on the borderline between arthouse and grindhouse. Indeed, they probably demonstrate that those two houses are not really so far apart. See below.
