"Home Town Story"

Home Town Story (1951) is an otherwise forgettable story about a war hero who is elected to the state senate based on his popularity, and is voted out two years later when the voters realize a good soldier is not necessarily a good politician. He comes back with a huge chip on his shoulder to take over managing his uncles paper, and decides to use the paper to get back in office. He finds a cause in exorbitant corporate profits, and is about to chase off his fiancee of 7 years, when his little sister is trapped in a cave-in, and local industry pitches in to rescue her. This, of course, makes him realize that industry is not all bad, and that he might be doing what he should be -- running a small town paper, and getting married.

The ending was predictable early in the film, but was probably somewhat less so in 1951. What made this film interesting to me was a supporting player named Marilyn Monroe. She played the part of his secretary, and has two scenes. In the first, a reporter flirts with her, and in the second, she brings the boss her mail. Yet, she lit up the screen even in this small part, and wore the hell out of a sweater. In this, her 7th credited appearance, she was required to supply her own costumes, and wore the same sweater she wore in All About Eve and The Fireball. The film is also known as The Headline Story.

IMDB readers have it at 7.1 of 10, but with very few votes. It is certainly not much of a film by today's standards, but is a must see for Marilyn fans. C.

    Roxanna (1970) is a soft-core from San Francisco film maker Nick Phillips, who stretched the envelope in terms of allowable content for 1970, and managed to include a lot of fetish material in his films, which were targeted at a few real houses that showed this sort of film. His films are non-stop exposure, and contain a lot of girl-girl along with the fetish material. This one was recently discovered in a vault, as a 35 mm negative, restored by Seduction Cinema, and released on a double DVD along with their remake staring Misty Mondae. The film includes two lesbian encounters, some male-female, an encounter with what is supposed to be a man in drag, and a little masturbation. To get past the "redeeming social importance" criteria, Roxanna was show as being in a mental hospital, crazy with guilt over her lust, and suicidal. This was a frequent trick to get by the censors, as the film could claim to be anti-sin.

    What made this interesting is not the actress in the title role, who is not identified, or the other unidentified actress, but none other than Uschi Digart in a 20 minute scene with the title character. All three women show all three Bs, with emphasis on breasts, and a few near gyno shots. You Uschi Fans will enjoy this images. There is no dialogue, but a weak narration. We see Roxanna having sex with one person after another, with shots of her naked in the mental hospital interspersed. The film is only interesting as a curiosity, but Uschi fans will want to own this one. The transfer quality is ok, but is full of chips, which they made no effort to clean up. The genre is early soft-core porn, and this is a worthy example. C. Hopefully someone can sleuth out the identity of the two unknowns.

    Scoop is taking the day off, but will return tomorrow.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • 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 I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Graphic Response
    • Catalina Larranaga Showing all 3 B's in scenes from the Skinemax flick "Bare Witness", starring Angie Everhart and a lesser Baldwin.

    • Piper Perabo & Jessica Paré in "Lost and Delirious". Both show breasts in very nice lesbian scenes.

    Be sure to pay Graphic Response a visit at his website. www.graphic-barry.com.

    Joy (1983) is a Canada-France softcore co-production starring Claudia Udy.

    Nudity report as follows: Much full frontal nudity by Claudia including a great beach photoshoot. Unidentified French actresses nude at various orgies (one got alot of exposure, can anyone name her?). Canadian actress Nancy Cser shows some boob and bush in a dark love scene near the beginning. Video is next to impossible to find in North America.

    Something Tells Them He's Not In Kansas Anymore - The FBI is searching for a 75-year-old retiree who allegedly entered a bank in Harrisonville, Kansas, pulled a gun and got away with a $179,000 cashier's check. He used it to buy a luxury Holiday Rambler motorhome with built-in queen-size bed and hit the road with his girlfriend. Agents know his identity, but the trail has gone cold. They describe him as white, with an "I can't believe I got away with this" expression on his face.

  • And they describe his girlfriend as Anna Nicole Smith.
  • He got away after an extremely slow-speed chase.
  • They expect him to rob another bank soon, just to pay for the gas.
  • They figure he'll probably gamble away the rest of the loot on bingo.

    I'm Fed Up! U2? - A survey by the concert trade magazine Pollstar found that the number of tickets sold by the top 50 acts in the first half of 2002 was down 18 percent from the same period in 2000. Industry insiders fear that skyrocketing ticket prices may finally have turned millions of fans off of live music. The only reason revenues are steady is because a shrinking number of fans are willing to pay ever-more exorbitant prices for the best seats.

  • Eventually, Paul McCartney will be charging $10 million to play in Bill Gates' living room.
  • Fans figure, "Why pay $350 to see the Rolling Stones when I can rent 'Night of the Living Dead' from Blockbuster for two bucks?"
  • Why pay top dollar to see Britney Spears when you can put on her CD and hear the exact same performance?...Literally!

    The Golden Trailer Award - TV Guide has listed the 50 Worst TV shows of all time, and "The Jerry Springer Show" was ranked #1. It edged out "My Mother The Car," the XFL, "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour" and "Hogan's Heroes." A Springer producer said that after 12 years of never being recognized by the Emmy Awards, "we are thrilled to accept this prestigious award from TV Guide."

  • ..."On behalf of all fat sluts who dress like whores everywhere."
  • He then used the award to bash in the skull of a skinhead from Memphis.
  • Of course, the thrill is bittersweet, since he knows the Fox Network is already hard at work developing shows that are worse.
  • Someday, we'll look back on Jerry Springer as part of the "Golden Age of Television."

    Another challenge for you...ever hear of Bitty Schram? She has been in television and movies for at least ten years, including A League of Their Own, Chasers and others. Her most recent is the USA show Monk, which is surprisingly good. Just curious if you or any Fun House readers have anything on her. Thanks!


    Hey Scoop,

    Something the readers may be interested in. I saw the Jennifer O'Neill move "Committed" on the dish the other day and while you have the side view topless pic on the site, there is an upskirt worth noting. Hopefully, someone has the upskirt from the film when she is talking to the doctor. I only caught a quick glance, but I believe there was nothing on under there. Hopefully someone can provide this pic for clarification or any other ones of this great looking babe.
