The commentary for The Last Hangman says that the nude scene was done
by a body double.
Thanks for the good info.
That surprises me, because
the character has virtually no lines, which raises the question of why he didn't just save himself a
one salary and hire an actress willing to do the nudity in the first place?
Surely he had plenty of choices, and he didn't need a great actress for
the minimal part. It's not he was filming a the entire Molly Bloom
soliloquy from Ulysses and just had to have Siobhan McKenna.
Or, cheaper still, why didn't he just allow the body double actress,
presumably working for scale, to appear
with the hood off for a couple of seconds, since that was basically all
the regular actress did anyway?

Catch the deluxe
version of Other Crap in real time, with all the bells and whistles,
Voyeur Beach (2002) is essentially the same film as Watchful Eye, which I
have already covered, but with some important differences. Watchful Eye was
made for cable, was 83 minutes long, and was only available on DVD in a full
screen transfer. Voyeur Beach sports a widescreen transfer, and is 87 minutes
long. Since this is a PAL disc, the 87 minutes is equivalent to more than 90
minutes of real running time because of the PAL speed-up. That means Voyeur
Beach includes more than seven minutes of additional footage that was not
available in the 83-minute Watchful Eye version, and all of that consists of
nudity and sex.
As a refresher, three lovely women and the male owner all live in a fancy
Malibu beach front home. The owner has the entire house wired for video, and
runs a live Internet broadcast of the women's daily lives, which, of course,
includes showers, baths, girl/girl sex, girl/boy sex, dressing and undressing,
nude swimming and hot tubbing, and so on. There is an empty room because one
resident was murdered, and that gets rented to an undercover police officer
(Renee Rea) who is investigating the murder.
- Full frontal nudity from Nissa Hall as a nude model photographed by
- Full frontal and rear from Nikki Fairchild as a house resident and lover
of the dead girl.
- Full frontal from the Penthouse Pet of the Millennium, Juliet Cariaga, as the
- Full frontal from Renee Rea, as the undercover investigator.
- Full frontal from Melissa Barmes as a roommate.
- Full frontal from former Playmate of the Year Julie Cialini as the resident party girl and sexpot.
This version feels complete, and has more than enough nudity and sex for
genre fans. The women are attractive, and the plot has a few twists, unlike
many in the genre.
Top of the line in the softcore genre.
It is available from RLDVDs.com on a region-free disk that is by far the
best version yet released.
Today the Time Machine heads back for a sex comedy. Not much of a movie
without the nudity, but oh, that nudity!

The Ballad of Cable Hogue
Part 10 of 13
Bobby Cooper (Sean Penn) is not having a good day. He's on his way to pay off some thugs when his car blows a radiator hose and traps him
in the small town of Superior, Arizona. He manages to steer the car to a mechanic (Billy Bob Thornton) before it dies. While he waits for his car to be fixed, Bobby runs into Grace (Jennifer Lopez), a beautiful young woman. This encounter will change his life forever. A series of events takes place that locks Bobby into the town, with no hope of escape except to murder someone.
My daughter and I had a big discussion about J-Lo movies on
Thanksgiving. I mentioned that I was sort of curious about El Cantante
because I love just about all Latino music, and she made some comment
like, "but it's a J-Lo movie, it has to suck." I had to remind her that
J-Lo was in some pretty good movies before she became a superstar, in
2000 or earlier: Selena, U-Turn, Out of Sight, The Cell, Blood and Wine,
and Mi Familia, to name six I like in varying degrees. Even The Money
Train, although a crappy movie, is a watchable crappy movie. Her only
really bad movie back then was Anaconda, which was dreadful indeed, but
the others were pretty decent movies, and J-Lo was gorgeous and turned
in some good performances. I can understand why she became a star.
Since she broke through, however, her leading roles have been every
bit as bad as my daughter suggested: Maid in Manhattan, Gigli, The
Wedding Planner, Monster-in-Law, Enough, Bordertown ...
First there was the Mudd's Robots Paradox, now there's the J-Lo
Irony. All the time she was not a star, she exhausted herself trying to
prove that she should be. Since she became one, she has made every
effort to prove she should not be.
I haven't seen that movie she made with Redford and Morgan Freeman,
but I have read that it was pretty good. If true, that would make it the
only good movie she has starred in since 2000. It seems to me that she
doesn't lack talent, just judgment. In reality, given her wide range of
talents, she probably would be an even bigger star if she had received
better advice along the way.

A nice quality film clip of a nice nude scene:
Anne Knecht in Vampire in
Venice. One one problem: Klaus Kinski alert!
Speaking of pretty girls and ugly-lookin'
screen legends, here's another classic combo,
Katja Bienert and Jess Franco in Lilian, la virgen pervertida
Kate Winslet's brief and unrevealing nude scene in Hamlet. In the
debate about whether to be or not to be naked, it's more on the "not to
be" side. But it's Kate, so there ya go.
Kurylenko in Hitman. These two clips have weak video and echoing
audio, obviously made from a cam. Better versions will come along
eventually. Having offered that caveat, let me add that it's a brand new
movie, it's a tiny download, it's Olga Kurylenko, and she's topless.
Ling in Shanghai Baby. Some kind of an R-rated trailer. A great
quality nude scene for us, considering that the film isn't even out yet.

In a sign that robots
are becoming more humanlike, a professor at Waseda
University in Japan unveiled a robot named Twendy-One.
It has soft hands and fingers that can gently grip
things, and it can perform such delicate maneuvers as
picking up a loaf of bread without crushing it,
helping humans stand up out of bed and making supple
movements that respond to human touch. So far, its
biggest weakness is that its battery only lasts 15
minutes, and it has a tendency to overheat during use.
* And when it does, it becomes a killing machine and
strangles everybody in sight.
* But for computer nerds, 15 minutes of supple,
human-like gripping is usually plenty of time for it
to finish the job.
A newly-discovered book called
"The Ladies Companion, or The English Midwife,"
printed in 1671, is about to be auctioned by
Sotheby's. The book includes tips for women who want
to get pregnant. For instance, take a first-born
boy's umbilical cord "which hath not touched the
ground, being well-dryed, beat it to a powder, and
drink it in wine." If that doesn't work, "Give to the
woman without her knowledge the womb of a hare to
eat." There was also a combination remedy that
involved mixing wine with a concoction made of hare's
* I think that's also the recipe for Gallo wine
* Or you could just have a lot of sex, but English
women found that too disgusting.
Ethel McEwan, 83,
of Guardbridge, Scotland, was saved from the rare
fatal disease Clostridium Diffiicile after the
hospital fed her daughter's feces to her. The disease
kills necessary digestive bacteria, and the treatment
involves liquefying feces from a close relative and
putting it into her stomach via a tube down the
throat. Doctors call it a "fecal transplant." McEwan
said people get disgusted when she tells them about
it, but it's no different than a kidney transplant.
She said, "It's not like they put it on a plate and
have you eat it."
* And even if they did, it would be better than

throats was perfected years ago by Hollywood.
