"My Brother's Wife"

My Brother's Wife (1966) is a Doris Wishman effort that is not a typical subject for her, but definitely shows her style. Better known for nudist films, roughies and large busted detectives, this is more of a cautionary tale about a cad who leads his brother's wife astray. His older brother welcomes him with open arms after not seeing him for two years, but his wife Mary is even more welcoming, as she is starved for attention from her husband. Not one to miss any opportunity, he seduces her and talks her into cleaning out their bank account, ostensibly to marry her himself, but actually so he can run off wit his old girlfriend.

As usual, Doris shot no live sound, preferring to add a music track and dub all the voices. We also see her unusual camera angles, and many closeups of inanimate objects. I suspect these closeups are to make the dubbing easier to match but they are one f her trademarks. The nudity is provided by June Roberts, who shows breasts, and buns through a filmy negligee.

IMDb readers have this at 2.4 of 10, but based on only 8 votes. Fans of Doris will want to see it, but it is a very predictable story with poor dubbing, rough editing, and not much in the way of character development. Like Doris herself, the story was straightforward with no subtlety or nuances. This is a very low C- as a Doris Wishman film, for her fans only.

    Alfie (2004):

    This is Jude Law's remake of the film which made Michael Caine a star. The film opens Friday, November 5th in the States. (It has already opened in the UK). Co-star Sienna Miller, seen here, is now Jude's real life girlfriend.

    • Sienna Miller (1, 2, 3, 4)



    Dawn of the Dead (2004):

    The last twelve months have been the year of the zombie. 28 Days Later, Dawn of the Dead, and Shaun of the Dead are all entertaining flicks. What are the odds that I, never having liked any zombie movie in my life except that funny one where Linnea danced naked on the tombstone, would like three zombie movies in one year? I would have bet against it.

    I didn't make any collages for this one, because I'm just not sure who this is. It is a completely gratuitous naked woman, seen in the closing credits but never anywhere else in the film. She had absolutely nothing to do with the plot of the film, and I can't even figure out how she got on that boat with Polley and the Vinger. Since Luigia Zucaro is credited as "naked woman", and since I didn't see any other naked women in the movie, I assume that this is Luigia, but that's still just a guess.

    • Luigia Zucaro (maybe) (1, 2, 3)



    The Red Violin (1998):

    Two short film clips of Greta Scacchi from this aesthetic film with an extremely clever script that interweaves many time periods.  This is an art film, I suppose, and neither Tuna nor I could be considered a great fan of art films, yet we both thought this one was aces!! I wrote, " If you're ever going to like an arty movie, here's the one."

    Words from Scoop.

    .avi's from Shiloh.

    .wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.

    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 picture. When 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 altogether.


    Stripped to Kill

    There are about a zillion of these Grade B stripper movies with similar titles. This one is better than most. It is unusual in three ways (1) No Maria Ford!! (2) It has a fairly interesting plot with some clever twists (3) It has mainstream actress Key Lenz as an undercover cop posing as a stripper.

    Lenz started her movie career on the top - as Bill Holden's co-star in a film directed by Dirty Harry. That's up there in the Hollywood food chain. Unfortunately, she never did become as big a star as some people thought she might.

    She was also one of the beautiful people in Hollywood. She was married for many years to teen idol and Partridge dude David Cassidy, and I suppose they were kind of the Bennifer of their own time.

    Shiloh will have some of the other strippers from this film in upcoming days, but here's the key one, the estimable Ms Lenz her own self.




    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    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.

    A reader says:

    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.

    Scoop says:

    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.


    Words, pictures, and vids from ICMS

    Here are two clips from the early Martin Scorsese film "Mean Streets" (1973). Amy Robinson, the actress turned producer, shows her protruding nipples plus about everything else.

    You'll notice that these Italian New Yorkers are very fluent in German, which really adds to the credibility of course ;-)

    No review either this time, I share exactly the same thoughts as you and Tuna in your reviews in the Movies section.


    Hot off the presses!
    Thanks to LC for these excellent previews of two movies not yet released.

    First up...Coming to theaters November 5th!

    • Sienna Miller topless and showing thong views in scenes from the upcoming Jude Law movie, "Alfie".

    Coming to DVD November 2nd!

    • Canadian actress Asia Vieira showing breasts, bum and a far off rear/gyno view in scenes from "A Home at the End of the World". This was the movie that had some buzz a while back because of a Colin Farrell frontal nude scene. The scene was cut because supposedly the size of his manhood was "too distracting for test audiences".

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    So a while back, there was this story about a Miss Norway contestant who was booted out of the pageant because she'd done a bunch of porn movies in the US. Gal claimed it was her identical sister, named Patty or Cathy, something like that. I figured BFD. She's from Norway. How good looking could she be? Blonde and pasty... I figured.

    Well, my good bud, The Gimp, got ahold of a couple of disks of the woman who would have been Miss Norway. And I couldn't be more wrong. Gal's name is Aylar Dianati Lie but she "acts" under the name of Persian Princess Diana. Dark-haired beauty with eyes to die for and a rack to kill for.

    Gimp says he's going to cap the main action. What he pointed me toward was a behind-the-scenes bonus segment where Aylar runs around topless before the real nasty stuff happens. Damn, it's a mighty fine piece of movie-making. So I capped it and put togehter eight collages.

    First one shows a view from the gynocam but all the rest are marvo-hooters only. Not that I'm complaining... and I figure you won't be either.

    • Aylar Dianati Lie aka 'Persian Princess Diana' (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

    Next up...some 'caps of three women in different movies, all of which have been done previously by some of the best guys in the business. But I could not resist.

    First up is Kathleen Kinmont in Rush Week. This starts off as an el primo tease routine (collages 1 and 2) with real goodies showing up only after the camera pulls back and Kathleen's shirt magically falls open (collage 3), then back to tease (collage 4), leading finally to a close-up peak at two of the natural wonders of the world (collage 5). Ya also get a good look at her nice rumpus in 2 and 4.

    • Kathleen Kinmont (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Kelly leBrock in Weird Science. Montaged the slow pan from toe to head that introduces Kelly to the audience. Nothing you wouldn't take home to mom, if you could trust your dad.

    And Michelle Bauer in her uber-cutest role, as geeky girl turned goddess in Nightmare Sisters. There's a topless posing scene in collages 1 and 2 and a bathtub scene with Linnea Quigley and Brinke Stevens in 3 and 4 (Linnea and Brinke are appropriately undressed in collage 3). Would have grabbed way more frames and put them together... of all three gals... but the transfer to DVD was done on from a commercial videotape played several dozen times before it was left to bake in the sun for a week and a half. It sucked more than anything has ever sucked before. Too bad, because all 3 women look extraordinary and the movie is okay.

    • Michelle Bauer (1, 2, 3, 4)

    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.

    • Cec Verrell, topless in a scene from "Runaway". The 1984 sci-fi movie starring Tom Selleck, Kirstie Alley and Gene Simmons of KISS in his first movie role. Written and directed by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), the movie is dated now, but not horribly so if you consider the concepts rather than actual "tech". Regardless, it's still a good watch.

    • Corinna Harney topless in scenes from the Jim Wynorski flick "Vampirella" (1996). Awesome hair on the dude in the pirate shirt in this clip!

    • It's a dark scene, but here is Julianne Moore topless while gettin' it on, then showing rear nudity as she jumps out of bed after the lovin'. Scenes from the Madonna movie "Body of Evidence" (1993).

    Anne Cathrin Buhtz
    Edita Uzaite
    Laura Venckeviciute

    All three are topless in separate scenes from the German-Czech TV-movie "Ratten 2 - Sie kommen wieder!" (2004)

    Katja Weitzenböck Rear nudity and partial breast views in scenes from the first episode of the series "Die Albertis".

    Erika Marozsán
    Gerti Drassl

    Scenes from the Austrian-Hungarian movie "Mein Vater, meine Frau und meine Geliebte". Marozsán shows some downshirt cleavage and partial side nudity in a love scene. Drassl shows breasts, bum and just a hint of bush.

    Sofía Vergara
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    The Columbian babe looking fantastic at the beach wearing a bikini (check out the thong view in #4).

    Noelle Evans
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

    Señor Skin 'caps of Evans topless in scenes from the low budget sci-fi flick "Frankenfish" (2004). Some folks may have seen this recently on the Sci-Fi channel (without these goodies of course). If Evans looks familar, it's because she has been in a couple of A-list movies. She played the escort service girl in the De Niro "15 Minutes" (2001), and she also played the character "Crack Whore" in the Roger Avary movie "The Rules of Attraction" (2002).

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Saturday Night Taped - Teen pop singer Ashlee Simpson had a Milli Vanilli moment on "Saturday Night Live," at the start of her second song. Someone hit the wrong button, and a lip-synch vocal track from her first song started playing. Flustered, she danced a jig, then ran off stage. The band vamped for a minute, then the show went to commercial. At the end, Ashlee came on and blamed her band, saying they played "the wrong song." Simpson recently told Lucky Magazine that she was "offended" by lip-synching and would never do it, declaring, "I'm going out to let my real talent show, not to just stand there and dance around."

  • This proves she can't even stand there and dance around all that well.
  • Her real talent happens to BE lip-synching.
  • She tap-dances, lies, blames others and mouths other people's words...If her showbiz career is over, she can go into politics.
  • Now we know why Jessica Simpson is considered "the smart sister."

    Death Don't Hurt - Patrick Swayze is upset about the Iraq war. He said, "I know a great deal about the Middle East because I've been raising Arabian horses for over 20 years. I've researched the culture for most of my life." He says he wants to quietly go hang out with Iraqi soldiers to offer emotional support to make up for America's insensitive treatment of them, "but the hard part is probably now, if I go, I'll die."

  • Terrorists know America would be hopelessly demoralized if we lost the star of "Roadhouse."
  • In the Middle East, dirty dancing is a capital offense.
  • On the bright side, beheading him would NOT lower his I.Q.
  • He's learned about the Middle East from his horses, the way Wilbur learned from Mr. Ed.

    She Needs Our Support - Catherine Zeta-Jones is suing the Spice House, which bills itself as Reno, Nevada's "friendliest topless cabaret," for putting her photos next to semi-nude women on their website. She says it could "dilute the value of her celebrity endorsement."

  • And she was just about to sign a big contract to endorse Lucky's Bazoom Room in Cleveland.
  • She should be grateful: that's where Michael Douglas first saw her.

    Hum Bug - Friday at the Los Angeles airport, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger introduced a custom, environmentally-friendly, hydrogen-powered Hummer he convinced GM to build to promote his push for hydrogen cars. But there are still drawbacks: it can go only 50 miles before refueling, and there are only 50 fuel stations in the state. So Arnold went home in a gas-powered SUV that gets 15 mpg.

  • That's still 15 times better than his gas-powered Hummer.
  • Arnold's gas-powered Hummer can only go 50 miles before refueling, too.
  • The last hydrogen-filled vehicle that was that big was the Hindenburg.
  • Arnold is the perfect spokesman for a big muscle car that's powered by hot gas.
