"Passion in Hot Hollows"

Passion in Hot Hollows (1969) is a Joe Sarno roughie made in upstate New York, and is a Sarno classic, in that he uses moody lighting, has no music during the sex scenes, and focuses on female orgasms. Cherie Winters and her husband return to her hick home town, and stay at her sister (Uta Erikson)'s hotel. Cherie is rich, easily bored, and does not get along with her sister. The waitress there, Linda Boyce, is married to an unemployed mill worker, who is busy seducing Monique Drevon.

Winters wants to get even with her sister, and add a little thrill to her own boring life, but getting him to have sex with her sister. Boyce tells her hubby to get a job or get out, then promptly does the nasty with his best friend, and then Winters' husband. Meanwhile. Boyce's husband decides to force Drevon to turn tricks for him. In the exciting climax, Winters and her hubby do a threesome with Drevon, and force her to mount a huge cylinder of some sort.

All four women show breasts. The video quality is less than ideal in this B & W film, but a feature length commentary that includes Joe and Peggy Sarno and David Friedman. They chat more about the exploitation business than about this particular film, but, as a fan of this era and genre, i enjoyed it very much. As to the film, it is a cut above the usual roughie, in that it has a plot, a script, real acting, and good photography. It is, in fact, a much better film than would have been required to satisfy the producers and the grindhouse audiences of the day. The genre is roughie, and this is a C+.

    The Damned (1969)

    Here are six clips of Swedish actress Ingrid Thulin, who died nearly a year ago, in "La Caduta degli Dei" (1969; aka. The Damned), one of those monumental dramas by Luchino Visconti. In this movie we see how a rich German family is divided over how to handle the rising Nazism, along with their own not very orthodox morals. In clips 5 and 6, mother and son don't exactly have a normal relationship, if you know what I mean.

    'Caps and review by C2K:

    Writing the script for this film would have been a relatively easy task. The movie can be based on Tim Henman, who every year excites the crowd he might become the first British champion since Fred Perry in 1936 only to fall in the Quarter or Semi-Finals. To add excitement look no further than the 2001 Wimbledon. Ranked 127 and receiving a wild card to the tournament, three times losing finalist Goran Ivanisevic won Wimbledon in the craziest circumstances. There were the “Two Gorans” in every game, the “emergency Goran” who bailed him out against Henman, his post match press conferences that were the most entertaining on the tennis circuit.

    Peter Colt (Paul Bettany) was the great hope of British tennis, ranked number 11 in the world and a US Open semi-finalist. Now ranked 117 in the world he is given a wild card to what will be his last Wimbledon and coming to accept a future away from the circuit as a pro at a posh tennis club. At the tournament he meets and falls in love with Lizzie Bradbury (Kirsten Dunst) a brash young American in the John McEnroe mould and currently the hottest property in tennis. Falling in love helps Peter’s game but has an adverse effect on Lizzie, making her father determined to stop the off court love match. As he progresses through the draw Peter has to battle on and off the court.

    This is a good sports film because of the unprecedented access to film at Wimbledon during the 2003 Championship and the CGI enhanced tennis scenes choreographed by former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash. Cash also coached the actors and Bettany’s strokes and movement are up to standard although Dunst fails to look convincing even as a club player and her serve would never clear the net. The supporting cast enhance the film with Nikolaj Coster Waldau as Colt’s practice partner and best friend on tour bringing the buddy element to the film and Sam Neill as Lizzie’s father playing the role of loving but dominating father without going to the excesses of Capriatti, Dokic and Pierce. Jon Favreau as Colt’s long lost agent steals every scene he’s in. There are cameos by John McEnroe and Chris Evert as commentators and former French Open Doubles champion Murphy Jensen as Colt’s opponent. However the director missed out what would have been the biggest coup of all when he decided against casting a young blonde Russian tennis player for looking too similar to Dunst as the very same young blonde Russian Maria Sharapova went on to win Wimbledon 2004 a couple of months before the film was released. The romance element works because Dunst is sweet, charming and looks extremely pretty and Bettany comes across as the type of guy you want to succeed rather than a Henman whose failure is ever amusing.

    • Kirsten Dunst teasing us as usual. In #1 she has a "nude behind barely transparent shower door" scene. In #4 she shows partial breast views while putting on a top. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Crimson Ghost
    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.

    First up from the Ghost today...part one of his mega-coverage of the Skinemax movie "Exposed" (2003). These 'caps feature adult star Jezebelle Bond having plenty of pseudo sex.

    Next up, a few assorted video clips. Zipped .wmvs as usual

    • Amanda Ryan, baring all 3 B's in the 1997 UK movie "Metroland", starring Christian Bale.

    • Carol Bagdasarian, the daughter of Ross Bagdasarian (the voice of Alvin and the Chipmunks). Here she is taking her shirt off and briefly showing a side breast view as she crawls into bed with Walker Texas Ranger in a scene from "The Octagon" (1980).

    • Deborah Kara Unger bares all 3 B's in this unfortunately dark blue scene from "Highlander III: The Sorcerer" (1994).

    • "Blade: Trinity" star Jessica Biel wearing only a bra and boxer shorts while gettin' drunk in a scene from the Roger Avary movie "The Rules of Attraction" (2002). Click here for the review. If for no other reason, it's worth checking out because Scoop included a picture of the 'Evil Dawson'.

    • Sally Hawkins, topless in a scene from the UK movie "All or Nothing" (2002).

    • Francesca Rettondini. Here is the Italian actress going topless and baring her bum in scenes from the 2002 ghost/horror/thriller, "Ghost Ship". (1, 2)

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    "Door in the Floor"
    While silly young actresses like Natalie Portman are making a big deal about (not) showing their boobs, along comes two established and respected actresses, Kim Basinger and Mimi Rogers, who had no problem getting naked for this 2004 drama (although granted Basinger's nudity was done in a very long camera shot so you couldn't see much). No so with Rogers, who has a many-seconds-long full frontal scene.

    Based on the John Irving novel A Widow for One Year, the movie tells the story of successful 1950's children book author Ted Cole and his wife (although it's set in modern times rather than the 50's).

    After they lose their teenaged sons in a car accident, wife Marion lapses into deep depression and causes tremendous strain to their marriage. Ted hires a young man to work as his summer assistant, and he winds up becoming Marion's lover. Although Ted becomes aware of the relationship, their own work relationship remains.

    Excellently acted with a well-done screen play and interesting characters, the movie had only one minor flaw. It's flat-out boring. Perhaps I've just overdosed on too many action movies.

    Johnny Moronic
    Mary Louise Parker
    (1, 2, 3)

    Full frontal and full dorsal nudity in scenes from the made for HBO mini-series, "Angels in America". Parker's performance earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.

    Nicole Kidman
    (1, 2)

    Jacinda Barrett
    (1, 2, 3)

    Scenes from the 2003 movie "The Human Stain", starring Kidman, Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris. Kidman gave up some partial nudity, while Barrett was very clearly topless and also did a far off frontal nude scene.

    Audrey Tautou Another great find by LC! Here is the star of "Amélie" baring a beautiful bum in scenes from "Un long dimanche de fiançailles" aka "A Very Long Engagement". Directed and co-written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (who also did the same for "Amélie"). The movie just opened here in the States in a very limited release this past Friday.

    Anna Friel
    (1, 2)

    Marvin 'caps of the UK actress in a scene from "The War Bride" (2001). Both images feature Friel in a bathing scene. In #1 we see a brief breast view while she's in the tub. In #2 we see far off frontal nudity as she gets out of the bath.

    Patricia Arquette
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Señor Skin 'caps of Arquette baring a breast in a deleted scene from "True Romance" (1993). Look for Arquette on the small screen next month in her new series "Medium" on NBC.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Maybe It's The Prozac - Paris Hilton told Rolling Stone that she's too lazy to have sex. She said, "I'm not a sexual person, really. I don't really care about sex. If I'm in a relationship, we don't even do anything, really. We just watch TV. I'm too lazy. I'd rather kiss."

  • She'd rather kiss her Chihuahua.
  • Or talk on her cell phone...which she can do WHILE having sex.
  • If Paris is in the mood for sex, she can just watch herself do it on TV.

    Christmas Island - Hawaiians are suffering from Christmas tree sticker shock. The trees have to be flown in from Oregon. Last year, retailers ordered too many and had a surplus. This year, they ordered fewer and ended up with a shortage. Upset crowds at one tree lot were told that the trees would cost up to $200 each. One man gave up waiting in line and ordered a tree from Colorado by cell phone. It cost him $80 plus $145 for shipping.

  • It'll arrive in two to three weeks.
  • The trees are $200 each, and those are the ones left over from last year.
  • So Hawaiians have to pay extra for Christmas trees? Those poor saps! Boy, I'd sure hate to be THERE!
  • Worse, if you're in Honolulu and dreaming of a white Christmas, it's really gonna cost you.

    Teaches Kids A Trade - Ivan Solomon of Vancouver and his partner, a reformed pot grower known only as "Rabbit," have invented "The Grow-Op Game," an "educational board game" in which the players become marijuana growers. In the Monopoly-style game, players go around the board renting properties, buying grow-lights and planting and harvesting crops while trying to avoid the "Growbuster" who lands on your property, rips out the plants and sends you directly to jail. They deny that it glamorizes drugs, saying it highlights the negatives. You can land on spaces where your hydropods flood or your neighbors rat on you.

  • But somehow, it all seems hilariously funny.
  • The game pieces are a tiny metal Twinkie, Ding-Dong, slice of pizza and bag of Funyons.
  • Like Monopoly, you get rich by growing it on Baltic Avenue and selling it on Park Place.
  • The only way to "Get Out Of Jail Free" is to play it in the Netherlands.
