"Cat Ballou" (1965)

In case there are some of you who have not seen Cat Ballou, it is a western spoof starring Jane Fonda in the title role as a young woman who received her teachers credentials at a finishing school and returns home. As the film opens, Cat is to be hanged for murder, and we are introduced to the story by two strolling minstrels played by Nat "King" Cole and Stubby Kaye. They appear throughout the film, as if they are relating the story. Most of the film is a flashback. Cat is put on the train home by her teacher, and entrusted to a preacher. The preacher turns out to be drunk, and is on the train to help his nephew escape custody. Cat ends up helping them. When she returns home, she finds the ranch in disarray, and her father being railroaded off of his land by a development company.

Enter Lee Marvin who plays both villain Tim Strawn and hero Kid Shelleen in an Oscar winning performance. Shelleen is a hero of dime novels, but has become a drunk as the role of the gunfighter has begun to fade in the West. When Strawn threatens her father's life, Cat hires Sheleen for $50.00, which he promptly drinks before reporting for work. Her father is in fact killed, and Cat forms a gang with an Indian who worked for her father, The uncle and nephew from the train, and Kid Sheleen and plots revenge. The "color shot" in the upper right of these images, where Marvin and his horse are both drunk and passed out against a brick building is one of the better known humorous scenes in film. Fonda kept her clothes on, but spent a lot of the film running around in frontier undies, and showed a lot of cleavage. Marvin also won Best actor from BAFTA, National Board of Review, Golden Globes, and the Berlin International Film Festival. The film was nominated for 4 other Oscars including editing, adapting from another media, music and best song.

The DVD is great. The images are crisp, the color is excellent, and there are plenty of extras.

"Rated X" (2000)

I won't review this, because this site did an absolutely superb review of the film and the real people behind it. The review says everything I would have said, and much more that I agree with, and says it all quite eloquently.

The movie is a biopic of San Francisco's notorious Mitchell Brothers, the porno producer/directors ultimately responsible for "Behind the Green Door", one of whom ended up shooting the other to death! Emilio Estevez directed and co-starred with his real life brother, Charlie Sheen, although it isn't clear if Charlie was aware he was in a movie, or if they just filmed him going about his usual daily routine.

"Bare Deception" (1999)

This film is an "Erotic Thriller". Tane McClure, the Grade C Shannon Tweed, stars as the host of a radio show that does matchmaking on the air. Ratings are poor and don't improve until a killer starts stalking all the women who go out on radio dates. Then the ratings set world records. We are shown that the show's producer is actually going out on all the dates - but is he the murderer, or is it several of the other red herrings that they throw at us?

A few miscellaneous observations: This is the best I've ever seen Tane McClure look, and she really did a presentable acting job in the lead. I thought she was excellent, and her body is also good, assuming you don't object to the breast augmentations. Unfortunately, many of the supporting actors were not up to the same standard. Angela Grant was especially funny as the first victim. If you rent the film, don't FF through her call to the radio station. It's very entertaining! Although the show appears on "440 on your A.M. dial" - a tough place to find - people are listening while they drive to work, and their car radios are shown tuned in to 1030. The police are especially gullible in this one. As they are about to release the show's producer for lack of evidence, somebody gives them photographs of him leaving the apartments of the women, and they arrest him. Huh? Well, that kinda proves he slept with them, but he already admitted being there and sleeping with them, so why was that new evidence? But even more important, the police weren't even a little suspicious that the same photographer shot him coming out of two completely different women's apartments in different parts of town on different nights. I'm no Sherlock Holmes, but I'd think the photographer is a more likely suspect than the guy being photographed. After all, the photographer had to have been at both apartments at the time of the murders, and was trying to pin the blame on a different guy. Du-u-uh! Of course, the police don't think the appearance of this evidence is at all unusual, and close the case. The funniest thing about this Grade C film is that the characters address fellow characters by the wrong first names at least twice that I heard. And, of course, since I watch with the remote, trying to pin down all the names of the actresses, I played both scenes back again and confirmed the errors. The name confusion isn't that odd, I suppose. I guess they film a turkey like this in a few days, and they don't do a lot of re-takes when everyone is on the clock. This particular one was filmed on video tape, and never transferred. Pretty lavish budget, eh? James Cameron spends more than this film's budget when he's ordering Starbucks for the key grips.

    McDonnell Douglas customer satisfaction survey

    This was allegedly posted very briefly on the McDonnell Douglas Website by an employee there who obviously has a sense of humour.
