"Coup de Foudre" (1983)

Coup de Foudre (1983), aka Entre Nous, stars Isabelle Huppert as a Jewess who is in an internment camp in occupied France in 1942. She escapes by marrying, and escapes with her husband to Italy. During the same period, Miou Miou has lost her true love to an apparent assassination at her art school. The two women meet years later at their children's school, and a friendship begins that eventually becomes intimate, and ends their marriages.

This film could have been steamy, judgmental, or trite, but managed to escape all of that. Their physical intimacy is mostly in the mind of the viewer, although they kiss once, and, after swimming, Isabelle comments that her breasts are too small (we see them in a mirror). Miou Miou enthusiastically disagrees. Acting was universally good, and most of the characters were fully explored -- the exception being Miou Miou's husband, who was supposed to be a shallow jerk anyway. The photography, settings and art direction were the quality I have come to expect from European productions. In a lengthy scene at the internment camp, we see an unknown woman who is topless and bathing in the background. As usual, if any of you know her, please let me know. The one negative on this DVD was that the subtitles were not especially plentiful. I still strongly recommend it to those who enjoy character driven drama.

    "The Last Detail" (1983)

    The Last Detail (1983) stars Jack Nicholson as Billy "Badass" Budduskey, a "skivvy waver" 3rd class, who is in transit in Norfolk, Virginia. For those who have not been around the Navy, sailors are "in transit" while they await new orders for their next assignment. While they wait, they are assigned every "shit detail" that needs doing on base. Norfolk, although it got a lot of revenue from the Navy presence, was not friendly to sailors. Signs like "sailors and dogs, keep off the grass" and "painter wanted -- sailors need not apply" were common. He is assigned to chase a prisoner (escort him) to Portsmouth Naval Prison to serve an 8 year sentence, and then receive a dishonorable discharge. Otis Young is also assigned as the second chaser. The seaman they are escorting is played flawlessly by Randy Quaid, who is an 18 year old kleptomaniac who got caught trying to grab $40.00 from the base polio fund.

    Unfortunately for Randy, it is the base commander's wife's favorite charity. Baddass plans on rushing the prisoner to Portsmouth, then splitting the travel and per diem money given for the three of them with Otis, then enjoying the two weeks allotted. As he gets to know the meek Quaid, who has never done anything, and "doesn't know how to have fun," he decides that it is up to him to teach the kid something, and show him a good time before he delivers him. The good time includes beating up three Marines in a bus station head, drinking most of the beer on the east coast, and finally getting the kid laid at a house of ill repute, where we have exposure from Carol Kane as a young lady of easy virtue.

    Over the course of the film, we see Quaid bloom, then, at the inevitable conclusion, withdraw back into himself. It was a difficult part, and he nailed it. I suppose I am somewhat biased as an ex Navy man, but this is one of my favorite films. Nicholson simply is Badass Budduskey, Otis Young was a perfect counterpoint to Nicholson, and the story was lively, human, and believable. The DVD is a little grainy, especially in the darker scenes, but is watchable.

    I watched The Last Days of Frankie the Fly, yet another Tarantinoesque movie about the grotesque underbelly of society. Dennis Hopper is a mob gofer who hopes to escape from his lowlife existence and become a filmmaker. Not available on DVD, and no longer being published on VHS, and not likely to be brought back by popular demand. Features some pretty good looks at Daryl Hannah's behind.

  • But Eva says she doesn't pose nude! Part 2
    Eva Herzigova
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
    I think Scoop hit the nail on the head yesterday when he said that Eva probably meant that she didn't do frontal nudity. As for not posing nude...well, unless Clinton's lawyers are handling Eva's definition of the word "nude", I still think these count (even #1 and #2 which are upskirts).

    Thanks to everyone who sent in evidence, especially Whyscan.

    Comments by the man they call Brainscan:

    Rie Miyazawa
    (1, 2, 3)
    She was a hot item on Japanese television and in top of the line fashion magazines about ten years ago. At the height of her popularity she agreed to pose nude for a high-class book, entitled Santa Fe; and the picture suggest she did pose in and around the central New Mexico area (Santa Fe, by the by, has the best Mexican restaurant this side of the Rio Grande, called Los Mayas). These scans are like running home to mama for me since they were the first I ever did on the first scanner I owned what seems eons ago.

    Rosina Revelle
    (1, 2, 3)
    Every month or so someone brings into the shop some old pinup mags with B & W photos; have the chance to scan a few before they make their way out of the shop and have noticed one woman shows up repeatedly from the time before I was born. Her name is Rosina Revelle, with an angelic face but... how to put this delicately?... monster hooters. Knowing some of your readers, I thought they might enjoy large breasts stuffed with something woman- rather than man-made.

    Monday's Funhouse reminded me of the celebrity babes who now pose for lingerie ads because they are famous (Laetitia) and those who posed before they were famous. I dug out a bunch of scans that include the second group.

    Leeann Tweeden
    (1, 2, 3, 4)
    Leeann is an Amy Weber clone, with an interesting style of hiding some of the goodies some of the time.

    Brooke Burke Done Brooke Burke's lingerie pics recently; these are the last.. from Frederick's of Hollywood. So if F of H can be considered a very poor man's Victoria's Secret does that mean Brooke is a very poor man's Laetitia?

    Alexandra Kabi
    (1, 2)
    All Alexandra is known for, other than a public romance with someone well-known (Don Johnson, perhaps?) is posing in lingerie. We should all use our best assets to their fullest, my mommy always told me.

    Finally, a comment prompted by Schmutzfink's caps of Theresa Russell. Saw her as a mere child in Black Widow and thought it curious that she would be so poorly exposed in a couple of quick, dark and artsy nude scenes 'cuz brotha let me tell you the babe cannot act. Range? Depth of character? Subtle emotive response? Naaaaah. But a face to die for and, it would stand to reason, a bod to go with it. But after seeing just about every frame of every nude scene Ms. Russell has done in what, a dozen and a half movies, I gotta say there is no there, there. Not a terrible bod, just not a good one. So what's my point? HOW does she continue to work in 'ollywood? With babes falling through doors who act no worse than she does and who have serious booties, why does she show up in everything requiring a nekkid female-type person? Maybe she walks around town with a tennis ball and a garden hose.

    But Jr, why post 'caps from 70's Disco Porn? Well....
  • 1. Because Scorpion deserves points for finding all of this rare stuff.
  • 2. These people were groundbreakers. Without them, there would be no busty teens in bikinis on FOX...there would be no Skinemax!
  • 3. Some of the younger Fun House readers have never seen real breasts in adult films.
  • 4. Or my favorite reason...shortage of modern celebrity nudity. The last few months of new releases have been pretty lame when it comes to showing the goodies.

    As for the source of all of these 'caps...like most Disco porn, they are named "Deep Inside" somebody..."The Awakening of" somebody..."The Devil in" somebody, etc.

    Michelle Hunziker Cleavage 'caps of the Eurobabe on a German talk show.

    Ann Gisel Glass
    (1, 2)
    Vidcaps from the German movie "Leise Schatten". #1 is topless, #2 is bottomless.
    Lisa Rogers A little something for the Brits...vidcaps from "Lock, Stock and Four Stolen Hooves". Here is Lisa playing a stripper. Lots of thong views, plus some topless stuff too.

    Natalie Roles
    (1, 2)
    Another UK actress...'caps showing pretty much everything except frontal nudity from "Take A Girl Like You".
    Kimberly Kelley Vidcaps from the super stinker "Hard Bounty". Kimberly looks good, but her nudity was very limited...Darn producers actually tried to tell a story instead of just showing the nekkid chicks!
    Rochelle Swanson Also going topless in "Hard Bounty".
    Patsy Kensit A pre-augmented Patsy showing the goods in the ultra lame straight-to snooze fest, "Bitter Harvest". But Jr, can it really be that bad? Let me answer that with a four words... Stephen Baldwin, leading man.
    Jennifer Rubin Also from "Bitter Harvest".
    and ...
    Donna D'Errico
    (1, 2, 3, 4)
    Hot semi-see-thrus from a Spanish magazine.

    Missy Raider
    (1, 2)
    A couple of topless scans of the model from Arena magazine. I kinda like #1.

    Halle Berry
    (1, 2)
    From Akira...Halle in scenes from "X-men". #1 has some pokies, #2 is Halle in her fully mutated form.

    Susan Holmes
    (1, 2)
    Thanks to PicCap for these full frontals. No clue who she is and for me it might be tough to ID her since she looks like at least a dozen strippers that I know.
