"Graduation Day"

Graduation Day (1981) is being released under the Troma label. They are evidently acquiring some 70's and 80's exploitation to augment their offerings. It is strictly a by the numbers teen slasher story. A young track star falls down dead after she wins a big race. Her sister returns on leave from the Navy to attend what would have been her graduation, and accept her honors on her behalf. Many blame the coach for the death, as he pushes all of his athletes very hard. One by one, all the members of the track team are slaughtered. We are supposed to suspect the sister, and then the coach.

Linnea Quigley shows breasts in a scene where she tries to seduce a music teacher to get a passing grade. Sometime stunt woman Denise Cheshire plays a gymnast/track star, end shows breasts in a locker room, and then is shaving her legs wearing panties and a sweater. Erica Hope briefly shows her breasts in a dark scene running from the killer. IMDB readers have this at 2.9 of 10. Critics are equally harsh. One says that having Linnea Quigley and Vanna White in the same cast should have been enough to keep people away. The 4/3 transfer is decent quality, and there is an interview with Linnea on the DVD. This film is a D, but might be of interest to fans of the stars.

    "Can You Keep It Up for a Week?"

    Can You Keep It Up for a Week? (1976) is a classic British sex romp. Annette (Jill Damas), is very happy with sex with her boyfriend Gil (Jeremy Bulloch), but his habit of getting sacked in the first day or two from every job he tries convinces her he is not marriage material. After he begs, she agrees that if he can get a job the next day, and keep it for a week, she will marry him. If not, the wedding is off, and he has to streak Buckingham Palace. After a disastrous interview, he stops in at the domestic service agency where she works, and is hired on the spot. For the rest of the film, he ends up in one sexual situation after another.

    IMDB readers say 4.7 of 10, which is not surprising. This film has way too much exposure for people who don't like nudity, but no explicit sex for the soft-core crowd. That leaves it with a very small audience, namely people like me who enjoy the genre, which is all in fun, has lots of naked women, and never even comes close to taking itself seriously. It was recently released by Jezebel, the US arm of Redemption, after a long period where noting was being released, evidently due to some legal problems. I am glad to see them moving again, as they specialize in slasher, and in sex farces. To me, the genre doesn't get any better, and this DVD would be a good bet if you are curious about the genre. Keep in mind that all of these are dated, so part of the appeal is nostalgia. C.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    For what it's worth, the newsgroup alt.fan.kerri-kendall currently has 400 new pictures of Amber Smith.

    Okay, back to Exposed: TV's Lifeguard Babes.  Today's offering is the most  active and widely photographed of the 8 babes on this DVD.  She is Cory Lane, also known as Teresa Langley.  Caps of her as Teresa from Night Shade and from Dream Master, and as Cory from Maui Heat are in the back issues (but then, so are caps of everyone worth looking at).  Here she does the interview thing, in which she says that "if you're pretty and smart you'll make a lot of money in Hollwood."  Uh huh.  Well, Cory has branched out a bit.  Ten minutes on the web indicates she is doing a lot of bondage work and has appeared in a couple of adult videos, although I do not know if'n she's done the nasty on screen.  Pretty.  Smart.  Making lots of money. The caps come from a tres long strip-off-the-bikini scene.  First three and the eighth collages are topless only; the others have full frontal and bum views.  Cory has robo-hooters but they are not the obnoxious, implants-straining-to-be-set-free kind.

    That Cory has gone from the titillating to the explicit can be seen in the last couple of collages from recent scans.  Now you have seen everything her personal doc has seen.

    • Cory Lane (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
    • Scoop's note: I lost the last two scans Brainscan is talking about - of Lane as Theresa Langley. I'm sure he'll send them in again.

    'Caps and comments by Spaz:

    Gosia Dobrowolska "Careful" (1994) is another arthouse flick by Canadian cult director Guy Maddin about a surreal 1920s alpine village fraught with repressed desires and incest. It's shot in tinted colors reminiscent of early two-strip Technicolor. Gosia Dobrowolska: very fuzzy full frontal taking bath as the oedipal mother.


    Katya Gardner Katya Gardner in Careful: side nude while skinny dipping, partial breast exposure

    Sarah Neville Sarah Neville in Careful: side of breast only (this is not the same UK actress of the same name).

    Michelle Beaudoin Michelle Beaudoin does the impossible, she stars as a damsel-in-distress in the Simandl stinker "Escape Velocity" (1998) and manages to keep her clothes on. Cleavage and upskirt only.

    Janne Mortil: "Tokyo Cowboy" (1994) is a PG-rated lesbian movie starring Janne Mortil and Christianne Hirt as the lesbian couple. No nudity and no love scenes.  Janne Mortil: bare back and some butt cleavage getting rubbed down, later minor pokies in t-shirt.

    Christianne Hirt Christianne Hirt in Tokyo Cowboy: minor pokies in sweatshirt

    Joyce Jimenez "Scorpio Nights 2" (1999) is a Filipino movie about a professor having an affair with a sexually adventurous student. Stars Joyce Jimenez from the US slasher "Harold Robbins' Body Parts".  Joyce Jimenez: full frontal, partial upclose bush shot.

    Scorpio Nights 2 exrtras Unknowns in Porky's-type shower scene. Notice they're all wearing shorts.

    News stories in white. Pat's comments in yellow.

    PERFUME KNOCKOFFS MADE FROM GOAT URINE. Police in Santiago, Chile, arrested a man who allegedly set up a secret lab to create bootleg perfumes sold by street vendors. He faked expensive perfumes such as Paloma Picasso and Chanel #5. A lab analysis of his copycat perfumes found that they were made from vodka and goat urine.

    * The Real Ones Use Imported Vodka -

    * He called his perfume "Chanel #1."

    * That sounds more like the formula for Cher's perfume.

    * That explains why women who wore it only attracted drunken old goats.

    NEW BRAWNY PAPER TOWEL GUY TO BE "SENSITIVE".  The Brawny paper towel company is looking for a new "Brawny man" to replace the lumberjack on their label. They say the new Brawny man must still be tough and sexy, but also "sensitive," like a man who doesn't mind helping with the housework. They've narrowed the search down to five finalists, including four firefighters, one of whom delivered a baby in a speeding vehicle. One contestant's girlfriend said she entered his name because he picks up feminine hygiene products for her, and "what's more tough?"

    * From Brawny To Fawny -

    * He should be the model for "Redi-Whip."

    * If she were tough, she'd use Brawy paper towels instead.

    * The old Brawny man NEVER picked up feminine hygiene products... He's gay.

    * Firefighters DO help with the housework...At the FIREHOUSE!

    * The old Brawny man is a lumberjack, and he's not okay.

    SEX BOOSTER WORKS ON WOMEN.  Researchers at Palatin Technologies of New Jersey report that the first human trials of a new drug to boost female sexual arousal were successful. PT-141 directly targets the brain's arousal center. 16 women given PT-141 became aroused watching an erotic video, while 16 women given placebos felt no interest. This is consistent with tests on rats in which females got so excited, they started mounting males. But researchers said PT-141 couldn't be used as a seduction drug because it only works as a nasal spray and it's hard to "surreptitiously stick it up a girl's nose."

    * She'll Tell You Where To Stick It

    * Rats!

    * You just have to approach her during allergy season.

    * There's already a drug women snort up their noses and it makes them want to have sex with rats...It's called cocaine.

    * Uh, that wasn't an erotic video that aroused them...It was the movie "Willard."

    LENO BOOTS PENIS PUPPETEERS. Matt Drudge reports that NBC executives are upset at Jay Leno for booking the stars of the stage show "Puppetry of the Penis" on Wednesday. The show insists it will be done "in good taste." But one stunned NBC executive said "genital origami" is "not in the spirit of 'The Tonight Show'" and urged Leno to "take the high road" and cancel it. He said he "can't imagine what these guys will do on the air."

    * An excerpt from "The Vagina Monologues"?

    * They'll demonstrate their craft on a platter of kielbasa sausages.

    * Jay just wanted to do SOMETHING that Steve Allen hadn't done first.

    * Too bad Letterman didn't book them the night Bill Clinton was on.

    Madonna told CNN's Larry King that money and sex don't matter, just your soul, and she's become so spiritual that she felt weird doing movie love scenes directed by her husband

    * She would've felt much more comfortable if he'd joined in

    * This, after millions of dollars and millions of sex partners.
