"The Wild Wild World of Jayne Mansfield"
The Wild Wild World of Jayne Mansfield (1968) is sort of a Mondo film, which follows Jayne through Rome and Paris, then back to LA, where we see her topless scenes from Promises, Promises. Along the way, she sees the normal tourist sights, and assorted sex and nudity in parks, night clubs, and even on a nudist island. She returns to LA to find that the whole city seems to be topless.
Then, the true exercise in poor taste, and the real reason for releasing this travelogue. They break in to announce her fatal car crash, then show sons of her widower and two kids at their mansion. The narration, supposedly by Jayne herself, is well before feminism came to the fore, and the emphasis on political correctness. She advises women to use all of their assets, including large breasts, bashes gays, etc. All in all, about the only reason to see this is as a piece of history. C-.

Do or Die (1991)
Do or Die is a typical Andy Sidaris "bullets and babes" movie
which makes essentially no sense at all. Tuna just did this a
couple of days ago (see the July 22nd edition or the Tuna archive
for his complete coverage), so I did something different this
time. I only snapped off a few caps, and included both nude and
non-nude pictures in my
Movie House page, along with a lengthy write-up. I think you
will find it all fairly amusing. Or not.

Lee Biography. Harper Lee is the Brady Anderson of
novelists. Her enigmatic success is one of the greatest of
literary mysteries. She wrote what is arguably the most beloved
book of the 20th century, and has published nothing else except
four mundane magazine articles. (Nobody really seems to know if
she has written other unpublished works.) Some argue that her
friend Truman Capote actually ghostwrote To Kill a Mockingbird,
while others scoff at the suggestion. I wonder if we will ever
know how her only significant published writing turned out to be
a literary masterpiece. I'm guessing that the answer will remain
as elusive as the secret to Brady's 50 home run season.

The Affair (1996):
Hey Scoop, Raelyn Saalman was mentioned in the Funhouse
recently. Here is a review for The Affair, where she was the star.
This movie is available new, possibly on DVD. It is part of the
Eros Collection, which I think is from Playboy. The version reviewed
is unrated, "Suggested for Mature Audiences due to sexual content,
violence and language". Stars Kim Blair, Jenna Bodnar, Nancy B.
Goode, Kim Lombardi, Raelyn Saalman, Kathleen Scott
Scoop's note: I couldn't find it on DVD.
There are some pretty good Scanman non-DVD caps in the Encyclopedia,
which he made from European TV. If you know where to get it on DVD,
let me or Tuna know about it.
A young woman named Jennifer is propositioned by an older woman
to have sex with her husband for money. Jennifer has trouble with
decision as it is morally wrong to her but she really needs the
money to help her fiancee out of debt so they can get married. There
may be more to the situation than meets the eye.
Jennifer (the impossibly cute Raelyn Saalman) and her husband are in
financial difficulties. She is tempted by a woman who will pay her
a large sum of money, to have an affair with the woman's husband,
while she watches. Jenna Bodnar as the woman shows everything
changing after Jennifer arrives. Kathleen Scott is her very
attractive blonde friend, who also shows everything in good light.
There are curves ahead in the plot department, as ulterior motives
lurk behind everything. Not a great story but at least it has one.
Not sure who all the actresses are. There was topless nudity from
one as she exposed her breasts along with a new tattoo. There were
breasts and maybe buns from a partygoer having sex in a bathroom.
Nice well-lit Full-frontal exposure from Jenna Bodnar, Raelyn
Saalman and Kathleen Scott. The Saalman scenes are excellent. Once
scene has her standing still while being undressed by the husband,
as the wife watches, until she is totally nude in front of the
couple. Nice natural body, very cute face. Worth the price of
I bought this movie when I saw it was Unrated and had Raelyn, who
I had seen in other movies, which were either not Unrated versions,
or her exposure was otherwise limited. Raelyn usually plays a
sister or brother's girlfriend (Friend of the Family) or the wife of
a cheating husband (Animal Instincts/Animal Attraction????) -
supporting roles only. I wanted to see her as the star, with more
exposure. Some of these Eros titles, especially the R-Rated
versions, are so tame it's not funny, but that's not the case here.
This movie delivered on all counts.

More Canadian movies....
"Skullduggery" (1982) aka "Warlock" aka "Blood Puzzle"
Exceptionally bad horror and a bust in the nudity department despite a promising female cast. Even the underwear shots suck.
"Killer Party" (1986)
Grace-B horror by Canadian schlockmeister William Fruet.
- Joanna Johnson: soap star in very thin negligee taking off panties.
- Hot tub girls: one-timers Celine Grimmer and Sherry Cook show boobs and butt.
Another horror by William Fruet.
"Flying" (1986) aka "Dream to Believe" aka "Teenage Dream"
From the director Paul Lynch of Bullies who featured Olivia D'Abo in a wet t-shirt.
Another horror by Paul Lynch. Is as unappetizing as its name.
"Act of War" (1998)
Dreadful Simandl movie re-released on DVD still with no nudity. The question is why this and not another czechploitation classic such as
Chained Heat II. You can tell Chris Hyde didn't write it because there are no lesbian threesome scenes.
"The Top of His Head" (1989)
Arthouse film were the director/writer also tacked his name on the cinematographer and editor credits. Most movies only have one of each.
"The Outer Limits" season seven (2001-2002)
More PG-rated nudity from the syndicated series.
"Alienated" premiere season (2003-?)
More PG-rated nudity from the new tv series. Last week in episode "Something has to be Something" the husband sets up videocams in every bedroom of the house only to catch himself making whoopie to the wife.
Last but not least:
- Gina Wilkinson: showing large hooters and flashing some fur in an episode of "Bliss". This episode also marked the English debut of Quebec singer Mitsou who showed absolutely nothing.

A few odds n' ends today....
First up, Nina Axelrod plays the sweet young thing who lost her memory after old Western star Rory Calhoun (in perhaps his most memorable role as Farmer Vincent, in 1980's MOTEL HELL) set a trap for her and her companion, catching human vittles to enhance his meat products. While her acting chops probably did not significantly enhance this campy black comedy/horror flick, the actress did go on to appear in several other movies... but lately has concentrated on work behind the scenes, as a casting director.
Next up, Jenny McShane barely plays a scientist in SHARK ATTACK 3: MEGALODON, the film where a prehistoric shark threatens "Mexicans" from what appears to be the one-time land of the Yugo, and her character no less fishily falls for one of the cinema's greatest romantic lines. The actress lets the goodies show for brief moments. She also appeared in the one that started it all, SHARK ATTACK... in a less-than-leading-lady role.
Rosi Chernogorova co-stars in Megalodon as Sherry, the latest conquest of the resident beach stud. They frolic in the water until frightened off by a present-day cousin of the Megalodon. While the Slavic sensation's continued success with the Silver Screen in upcoming years may be doubtful, Rosi came across as pretty sexy in what may turn out to be her sole sprockety appearance.
Moving on to the legendary, ultra-busty Uschi Digard who displays her magnificent mammaries (and maximus gluteus) as a Nazi military secretary in THE CUT-THROATS (1969). The general urges her to get it on with a soldier once declaration of the war's end comes in. The buxom beauty, uncredited in the film, performs a sexy strip tease, before directing the soldier to man-handle her... perhaps turned on by the soldier's unusually long hair, a style well before its time in 1945. This poor man's version of THE DIRTY DOZEN was directed by John Hayes, known for
sexploitationers like FANDANGO.
And finally today....Cindy Wilks is Candy, an unfortunate prostitute coerced into a sex act by her cruel pimp (Tony DiBenedetto) in THE EXTERMINATOR (1980); the john heats things up for her in a sizzlingly mean way. Our hero is a Vietnam vet who does a turn as TAXI DRIVER's Travis Bickle, attempting to save the lady from her wayward lifestyle. Coincidentally, both the john and the pimp could be found together at a later date, to receive their comeuppance. The film marks Cindy's only stab at celluloid, save for a possible other role as a church-goer some twenty years later. (Hallelujah, and amen! She finally found salvation.)

"Final Destination 2"
At last, a sequel that is as good or better that the original...Final Destination 2 is a good horror/thriller on it's own merits.
This time a premonition allows a young woman to save people from a terrible traffic accident, but like the original plot, the survivors all start dying. It's a fight to outsmart death, and is pretty enjoyable watching, if you don't mind bloody.
Ali Larter reprises her role from the first movie, but all the other characters are new. The three wreck scenes have outstanding action photography, and are very exciting to watch.
