La Derobade:

I don't know jack about this movie. These captures were made from the ICMS videos (see his section below). The lighting was funky, and I played with them way too much, so the quality varies dramatically, but I did as many as possible, because this film is underrepresented in the encyclopedia.

This film was created some seven years after Last Tango, and Maria Schneider had trimmed down considerably. While she had lost all of her baby fat, she had also lost a good deal of her appeal as well.

Dear Uncle Scoops.

Congratulations on hitting the 10 year mark!  I've been an avid reader and viewer since '98 and I'm pretty sure I've read every issue since and have enjoyed the ride thoroughly.  A sincere 'thank you' to yourself, Junior and
of the other contributors who have made the Fun House one of the most entertaining stops on the web.

Accolades aside, I have a challenge for the staff, one that may require a sort of nudity idiot savant to answer it:  there's a Docker's commercial set on two trolley cars in San Francisco which features a truly fine brunette (I'd docker).  She's cute as a button and I'd love to find out her name so I could use the tried and true method of googling all I can about her.

Scoop replies: I think her name is Karolina Wydra, and she's Polish.

Movie Reviews:

Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe). White asterisk: expanded format. Blue asterisk: not mine. No asterisk: it probably sucks.


Fantasm Comes Again (1977)

This project exists because Fantasm was such a financial success, both in Australia and overseas. The producers felt they had a winning formula, investors, and an eager market, so they returned to LA to shoot another ten short sex comedies using hard and soft core porn stars. They also got brave, an upped the budget to $75K. This time they were not banned in Melbourne, but while the sequel made a profit, it was nowhere near the hit the original was. It did very well in foreign markets, however. Some of the overseas distributors had asked for hard core footage, so they spent a day in San Francisco shooting hard core inserts in case they were needed. They of course picked San Francisco because the police were not going after hard core companies there. The footage never ended up getting used, and is now missing. Like the original, this was shot an episode a day for 10 days on 16 mm stock, then blown up to 35 mm, and the connecting sequences were filmed in Australia.

Rather than repeating the device in which the psychiatrist commented on female fantasies, they switched the framing device to a retiring newspaper sex advice columnist on his last night, breaking in his replacement, played by Angela Menzies-Wills, who was chosen when the producers saw her nude pictorial in a Sunday tabloid. They wanted an Australian woman to haul to openings and promotions, and they got that, but the filmmakers also expected her to get increasingly naked as the night progressed, but she wasn't willing to undress for the movies. We do see her breasts through a partially open blouse by the end.

Here are the ten episodes and the nudity.

Silence Please

A woman and her friend discover a Japanese pillow book in the library, and are making noise enjoying it. The stern male librarian takes the woman from behind.

Liz Woolfe - Full Frontal


A budding college gymnast is seduced by her coach.

Michael Barton - Full frontal

Double Feature

Two couples go to the drive-in. Smith is tired of her boyfriend's roaming hands, and heads to the snack bar. The boyfriend has a three way with the couple in the back set. Meanwhile, Smith is pulled into a van and raped on the way back from the snack bar. Meanwhile, the Rene Bond rape sequence from Fantasm in playing at the drive in.

Rainbeaux Smith - Full frontal

Lois Owens - Breasts

Going Up?

An office delivery boy, trapped in an elevator with two women, who seduce him.

Suzy A Starr, Amanda Smith - Full frontal, but no way to know which is which

Uschi Digart - Full frontal

Dee Dee Levitt - Full frontal

The Good Old Gang at the Office

Brenda Fogerty - Breasts and Buns


Helen O'Connell - Full frontal

The Kiss of Life

Three girlfriends are at the public pool, and wondering how well endowed the life guard is. Since he is aloof and ignoring them, they decide one of them should fake drowning. All four end up having sex in the pool. John Holmes was to have played the lifeguard, but refused to go into the pool. He was afraid his assets would shrink, so they replaced him.

Family Reunion

Nancy Mann peeps on her step mother, Candy Samples, having sex with her uncle. She is caught, and it becomes a three way.

True Confession

Serena goes to confession, admitting to lusting after the church janitor. Of course it is the janitor in the confessional, not a priest, and fantasy becomes reality.

Serena - Full frontal

IMDb readers say 3.5 with only 20 votes. Both this and the original represent a time capsule of the 70s, and a rather painless way to see XXX stars in soft core roles. Note that both DVDs are the most complete, uncensored versions of these films ever shown, and have feature length commentaries. Fantasm Comes Again simply does not work quite as well as the original and is therefore a C.






Griffen Drew in an episode of Erotic Confessions

Griffen Drew again, this time in Bedtime Stories

Today we take the Time Machine to 1988 for "Not of This Earth", a remake of Roger Corman's 1957 Sci-Fi Vampire flick.  This one, all in all campy fun, was probably made for one reason only - and that was to put then-pornstar Traci Lords in a mainstream movie after it had been revealed that Traci had made dozens of porn flicks while underage.

So here's Traci playing a nurse and also looking good in a bikini and off course some topless scenes.

There was more boobage available with Belinda Grant.

'Caps and comments by Dann:


There has been a plethora of killer web-site movies in the last couple of years, most of them dreadful, but this 2005 entry stands out because it's a pretty good thriller. In addition, I'm an Armand Assante fan, and he was good as the beleaguered detective in this one.

A detective almost ready to retire, and with a terminal illness that he's trying to hide from everyone, gets saddled with a serial killer case where the killer displays the murders on a web site. Even worse, the killer seems to be tracking the cop's every move, and displays THAT on the web site as well.

The boss cops bring in a team of computer experts, but the detective scorns their efforts, insisting that good old-fashioned police work is what will solve the case. He may be right, as the experts are continually stymied.

Not a great movie, maybe, but exciting and fun to watch. I recommend it.


First of all congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the Fun House. I think I started reading your blog avant la lettre somewhere end 1996 begin 1997, I can't remember when exactly. Thank you for giving me (and others no doubt) something to look forward to every day during that long period and hopefully still for a long time to come. In all those years many celeb sites came and went, but the Fun House is still here, solid as the rock of Gibraltar, and looking better than ever. That is quite an achievement in the often fleeting internet environment. Now I'll proceed to business as usual but maybe we can all sing along "For he's a jolly good fellow" on the occasion :-)

Today I've got 6 clips (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) from a French film from 1979 in which Miou-Miou and Maria Schneider show their best full frontal bits. La Dérobade deals with the not so glamorous sides of prostitution and isn't an easy watch. As far as I know this movie isn't available on DVD anywhere. I recorded it quite some time ago but still from a crappy analog cable TV channel. Oddly enough the clips seem to have come out better than the original (much of the image noises and atmospheric disturbances are gone!). Please check for yourself.

Deafbeer wrote in to say: "I watched The Notebook hoping to catch Rachel McAdams nudity and I wasn't disappointed. This was from the Deleted Scenes and I haven't seen anyone else submit this so ... I thought others might have missed it."

Well done, sir!
