Here is a large zip file with five avis of Kerry Fox in Intimacy. The film is most famous for the scene in which Kerry, a familiar mainstream actress in the UK,  sipped the love-Slurpee on camera in real time. We were not impressed with the movie, but admitted it was pretty hot porn for a couple of boring British actors.!

Dipping our bucket once more into the Well of Obscurity, we came up with Candice Bergen in a  Wertmueller movie with a typically concise name, The End of the World in Our Usual Bed in a Night Full of Rain. It's Candice Bergen's only topless scene, and it's not available on DVD. Director Lina Wertmueller is often mentioned in discussions of the greatest female director of all time, and she was the first woman ever to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar. Her movies are now coming out on DVD, so even though this one is not on the schedule, we can reasonably hope it will not be far off.  This is a zipped .avi from a VHS tape. Sample collage below:

I've never seen Rolling Kansas, but this silly clip (zipped .avi) with a topless Mia Zottoli has sorta piqued my interest. It was written and directed by the guy who played Lowell on Wings! IMDb says: "An independent film about a road trip to find a magical forest of marijuana."


Time to pay the Pfeiffer:

I have not thought this through, but off the top of my head, I'd wager that the biggest disappointment of the DVD era has to be the loss of Kelly McGillis's open leg shot in Cat Chaser. Running a close second is the loss of this great shot of Michelle Pfeiffer's gorgeous tushy in Into the Night. Unlike Cat Chaser, Into the Night has not been censored. It just so happens that Michelle's booty just gets cut off in the theatrical widescreen framing, and the DVD has no full screen version. Our loss. Here are some blown-up VHS frames to show you what we missed:

Movie Reviews:

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.


Hussy (1980)

Hussy, a British film, is listed at IMDb as a drama, but I would say it's more of an offbeat romantic comedy. The couple consists of a nightclub hooker (Helen Mirren), and a widow-turned-limo-driver (John Shea). At any rate, Shea meets her at the club, and is immediately smitten. He manages to woo her, but has trouble looking the other way at her "job." He does get along fine with her young son, of whom she does not have custody. When her ex is released from either jail or a mental hospital for the criminally insane, life gets more interesting. Shea gets involved in a drug buy to raise cash so the two of them can take the kid, leave the country, and live happily ever after. Naturally, it isn't quite that simple.

The performances were, as you would expect, fine, especially from Dame Helen Mirren, but I could never really relate to the characters in this film. Mirren supposedly lost custody of her son because of her job, but had to turn tricks to pay her lawyer for the custody hearing. Shea had lost his wife, and gone downhill. I suppose it was supposed to be touching that they both found redemption in each other's arms, but I just never could invest any emotional energy in their plights.

With her recent nude appearances, it is nice to see Mirren at a younger age. Oddly, there are no online reviews available for this film. You would think that a film featuring a two-time Oscar nominee completely naked at age 35 would attract at least somebody.


IMDb readers, all 40 of them, have this at 4.5.


Helen Mirren does full frontal and rear nudity in a dark bedroom scene, and full frontal in a well-lit bath.

Scoop's thoughts. Maybe the full-frame VHS version had a little better take on the bath scene. Here's the zipped film clip, and here's a collage (I re-cropped the frames to resemble widescreen framing:








"Here are the corrected collages of Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing. Apologies for the muck-up - it's a confusion that I've had for a while."






From my mailbox: "Scoop: I noticed that you only had two pictures of Marguerite MacIntyre. Here are several caps I made of Marguerite MacIntyre when she was a guest star on "The Shield" cable TV show. The last time I submitted any caps was at least 7 years ago."

Good stuff - see ya in 2013!

Scoop's note re: the above ... I don't know much about Marguerite MacIntyre. She showed a little flesh as one of the victims in Red Dragon.

Lindsay Lohan really knows how to dress up for a party!

From the second picture, it looks like Lucy Lawless decided that a bit too much was on display in the first picture from the American Comedy Awards

Kiss Monopoly money goodbye: Parker Brothers has struck a deal with Visa to create a new cashless version of the board game.  Players will get mock debit cards and stick them into an electronic banking machine to keep track of their money.  A spokesman said the game reflects changing times, with a recent poll showing that 70 percent of people use cash less than they did a decade ago.

People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals is calling on the Illinois attorney general to open a criminal investigation after the draining of Leclaire Lake to reduce erosion resulted in the death of 20 carp.  Park officials said they sent a charge into the water to stun the fish and relocated all the ones they could find, but missed 20 carp, which are bottom feeders that aren't even supposed to be in that lake. PETA claims the carp deaths violate the state animal cruelty law which says nobody may "beat, cruelly treat, torment, starve, overwork or otherwise abuse any animal."  The attorney general was out and unavailable for comment.

*  He'd put up a sign that read, "Gone Fishin'."
