"On August 17, 2006 the famous Trix rabbit finally got the children's cereal he so craved, and was able to eat it without anyone stopping him. Within minutes, he went into toxic shock and died. Unbeknownst to him, many ingredients in the cereal were poisonous to rabbits."
Did you ever think there would be a day when Chicago would ban a type of meat. "Chicago, hog-butcher for the world, stormy, husky, brawling city of the big shoulders?"
I would expect this of certain sissy, PC cities which I could name, but Chi Town? "Here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities. Show me another city with lifted head singing, so proud to be alive and coarse."
Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format.
Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.
Putney Swope (1969)
Putney Swope (1969) was inspired by an incident that took place when Robert
Downey Sr. was making off-beat commercials for an ad agency. A black man who
did the same job noticed that Downey made much more money. The boss explained
that if he gave the black man a raise, Downey would want one too, and they
would be right back where they started. Starting with that, and the idea of
reversing the racial roles, he wrote the screenplay for Putney Swope.
The head of an ad agency dies at a board meeting, and with him still dead
on the table, they hold an election for a new chairman. All but two people
vote for the agency's token black man, Putney Swope, who becomes the head of
the agency. Cut to a boardroom full of radical black board members. Swope
heads the company with outrageous ideas, and amasses a fortune. He is also
courted by the president and the first lady, a couple of midgets. They are
advised by an obvious Kissinger character.
Arnold Johnson was perfect for the role of Putney Swope, but there was a
problem. He couldn't remember his lines. Then the cameraman noticed that his
beard covered his mouth, and suggested that it would be easy to dub the lines
in post production, so that's what they did, with Downey Sr. doing the
dubbing! Downey had a great deal of trouble selling the concept, but finally
found financing and distribution, and it did reasonably well. I found it
terribly dated, not that biting as social satire, and only occasionally
humorous. The film is in black and white, but all of the faux commercials are
It's a C- on our scale, and is interesting only as a cultural artifact.
IMDb readers say 6.5.
Scoop's notes: That brings back some memories. I
have only seen Putney Swope once, during its original run, in a Greenwich
Village arthouse theater! It was quite the counter-culture rage back in the
headiest anti-establishment days of the late 60s, and a "must see" for
pseudo-intellectual university types in New York City. Hmm, I wonder what
happened to the girl that went with me that night.
Anyway, I was disappointed. My reaction to the film was exactly the same as
Tuna's is today, except for the "terribly dated" part. That Downey Senior was
one messed-up dude. I thought the satire was clumsy, the comic timing was off,
the production value was nil, and there was nothing very funny in it except for
a couple of moments in the faux commercials.
The cult status it once enjoyed seems unaccountable today. It's basically an
underground film, not much slicker than a home movie, one of those "ya hadda be
dere" films. It was celebrated by the counter culture because it was both weird and
angry and thus caught the zeitgeist by being doubly anti-establishment: it rejected
establishment cultural values in a form that rejected establishment filmmaking

all film clips in DivX format
Blues Brothers 2000
No nudity in Blues Brothers 2000 (1998), just lots of strippers in thongs and
very little else.
The only identifiable woman is Shann Johnson.
Natural Born Killers
The nudity in Natural Born Killers (1994) comes from a bit of nipple exposure
by Juliette Lewis.
and Lorraine Farris are down to their underwear.
The Two Jakes
No nudity in The Two Jakes but Jack Nicholson gets a good grasp of
Madeleine Stowe's beautiful bottom
(zipped .avi film clip).
Meg Tilly also looks lovely.
Grace of My Heart
There is brief topless nudity by an unknown hippy in Grace of My Heart
Illeana Douglas is another actress that I have
always liked but the best we see is her half dressed.
Bless This House
Sally Geeson would be well known by fans of
British comedy and was the eye candy in the TV comedy series Bless This House.
Here, we see her in a bikini in the movie version of the TV show.
Murder, She Wrote
No nudity in a Murder, She Wrote episode called Christopher Bundy -
Died on Sunday (1986) but Katherine Moffat fills
out a bikini nicely.
Sunday in the Country
Some brief breast exposed by Susan Petrie in the
above-average movie Sunday in the Country (1974) aka Vengeance is Mine.
Trial by Jury
No nudity in Trial By Jury (1994). Joanne Whalley-Kilmer
shows us lots of cleavage and an upskirt
and Kathleen Quinlan finds it necessary to strip
down before she kills somebody.
The Masters of Horror series provides us with plenty of nudity. In this
episode, Haeshel's Tale (2006), we see lots of Leela
Savasta (zipped .avi film clip),
with just a hint of bush,
and Elizabeth McQuade
(zipped .avi film clip), in her
one IMDb credit, as a cadaver that briefly comes back to life.
Masters of Horror : Imprint
Continuing the Masters of Horror series, we have a Japanese
contribution called Imprint (2005). Miho Ninagawa
(zipped .avi film clip) shows some
small breasts, which is interesting as she is shown giving birth to a baby and
her breasts show no sign of having milk.
The rest of the nudity comes from Michie(zipped .avi film clip), who
is shown being tortured, which makes for a gruesome show.

out every time she leaves the house?
