Gotham (1988) is a made for TV film that looks like a noire detective yarn, but is really a ghost story. Colin Bruce was married to heiress Virginia Madsen, who died in a boating accident. Her final request was to be buried in nothing but her jewels. He complied, then dug up the jewels. She came back to haunt him, so he hired private dick Tommy Lee Jones to get rid of her. Jones and Madsen become an item.
Virginia Madsen shows everything, and Denise Stephenson, as Jones girlfriend, shows a breast. IMDb readers have this at 5.9 of 10. I enjoyed the atmosphere and look of the film, and Madsen was drop dead gorgeous, but the story didn't really engage me. This is a C.

NOTE: because of a unique combination of
circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial
bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip
format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a
you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in
the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not
play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory
work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this
new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want
to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips
Showgirls, Part 3
What can ya say? The perennial Funhouse favorite.
High camp, naked chicks and ... um ... more naked chicks. Not to
mention some naked chicks.

Berkley becomes the star of the Vegas show, takes
over the Gina Gershon role on stage (.avi zipped) (.wmv zipped)
Medium long download.
Berkley pulls off the ol' painted nipple trick. This
is a classic scene: the set design is in particularly bad taste,
even by Vegas standards. The costumes and hair styles are
deliciously over-the-top, and the dialogue is awe-inspiring,
undoubtedly lifted heavily from T.S. Eliot's Murder in the
Cathedral. (.avi zipped) (.wmv zipped). Medium long download.

Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.

You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.
NOTE: We currently have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Instead of viewing them online, save the zip files to your hard drive in the directory of your choice, un-zip and play from there.
Today from the Ghost...a couple more video clips of Ione Skye topless. This batch is from the 1995 indie, "Four Rooms".

'Caps and comments by Spaz:
Dreadful women-in-prison movie starring only a half naked
Halle Berry. Despite a communal shower scene it
was total write-off. The nudity was
shown by very ugly women who were probably inmates recruited from
the husband-killer block.
I only got the movie to identify Laura Mitchell and Amy Sloan
credited as inmates but it seems their footage was left on the
cutting room floor. Probably a lesbian sex scene the MPAA objected to.
But the good news is I was able to identify two other Canadian actresses.
- Kathleen Mackey: partial breasts in wet nightgown.
- Andrea Sheldon: breasts, spread eagled on bed in panties getting raped.
Then behind wall copping a feel of Halle Berry's boob.
"Good Fences" (2003)
Whoopie Goldberg comedy about a black family moving
into an upper class suburb.
Hunger: Wetware DVD collection
Episode: "The Many Faces of Helene Bournouw"
- Jayne Heitmeyer: sets a new record by using
four credited stand-ins in one episode leaving her with
only five seconds of screen time. At least
one is a bodydub showing boob and butt in sex scene.
- motorcycle mama: very fat, obviously not one of the stand-ins.
Episode: "The Other Woman"
Episode: "Triangle of Steel"
Episode: "The Falling Man"

Regarding the request for Holly Dignard in "The Outer Limits". Unfortunately, that particular episode never aired uncut here in Canada.
'Caps and comments by Oz:
No real visible nudity in Burnt Offerings. Karen Black goes for a midnight swim but it is too dark to see anything.
Leslie Bevis is an alien in Alien Nation and it is gratifying to know that they too go for the silicone-enhanced look. Some nice pokies but the nudity is from the rear.
- Leslie Bevis
I sent some of these caps from The Monster a while ago but I've managed to improve the quality. Topless views of Joan Collins and even more is revealed by strippers Susie Lightning and Lopez. Amazingly, Caroline Munro goes a little shy with her breast covered by a patch.
"Hands of the Ripper"
Another English horror film is Hands of the Ripper. There is the briefest sighting of Angharad Rees' nipple when she takes a bath.
"Baby Juice Express"
Continuing the English theme, we have plenty of cleavage in Baby Juice Express by Samantha Janus and Cleo Roccos.
More cleavage by Chrystale Wilson in Lockdown.
"The Big Chill"
Glenn Close's breast in The Big Chill has appeared before but there are also some nice pokies by Mary Kay Place and Meg Tilly shows some nice dexterity.
Over to Europe for the thriller Hit! and Gwen Welles goes topless.
"Troma Edge TV"
Tiffany Shepis is a Troma regular and we have some nice pokies by her in an episode of Troma Edge TV,
