stepping into something weirdds

I have seen an awful lot of nudie cuties for this Something Weird Video Feature. Every last one of them has been full of corny humor most of which made me roll my eyes up. That said however, every last one of them has also featured one, if not multiple unforgettable bits of imagery. Dr. Sex has been one of my most popular Tumblr posts thanks to bulgy eyed guy featured in the banner above. The prints for both films on this Something Weird Video double feature were in rough shape. In its way it sort of adds to the charm. I actually rather like the rough look especially in the title sequences. So much so, I was inspired to make a GIF for each! Dr. Sex (1964).

My favourite part about Wanda The Sadistic Hypnotist was Wanda (Katharine Shubeck); that character is bat-shit crazy! And I loved Wanda’s wardrobe! For images from Wanda the Sadistic Hypnotist click here.

DESCRIPTION FROM THE SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO WEBSITE:

Mild-mannered Sylvester goes from being the victim of a car crash to the Sex-Toy-in-Residence when he’s held prisoner by a cult of lingerie-clad sex-kittens led by WANDA THE SADISTIC HYPNOTIST! Armed with a riding crop and wild eyes, Wanda amuses herself by hypnotizing a door-to-door saleswoman into thinking she’s a go-go dancer, turning a lesbian into a man-hungry nympho, and making Sylvester parade around in a leather bikini. But Wanda’s party really kicks into high gear when it’s invaded by a “mentally demented” maniac who not only “cannot control his emotions when he’s near attractive females,” but finds Wanda’s secret supply of LSD.

Wanda (The Sadistic Hypnotist) (1969) directed by Greg Corarito, starring Katharine Shubeck, Richard Compton, Janine Sweet, Patty Roberts, Lindy Birde, Mary Weatler, Lynn Harris, Sheri Jackson, Linda Stiles, Iris Dawne, Estelle Murphy, Greg Corarito, Robert Luisi, Lauri Davis and Jean Rodgers.

I was especially impressed with the supplements on this double feature. Something Weird Video really outdid themselves with this package! I enjoyed every one of those hypnotic shorts they include in the set. I even did a tumblr post for Jane on a Train and Naked Devil Doll. I would have LOVED to have been able to get cleaner pictures for Dueling Divas as it is not everyday you get to see broads fencing in their lingerie!

stepping into something weird doris wishman

Doris Wishman, or Queen Doris as I like to call her was almost fifty when she directed her first film Hideout in the Sun in 1960 and she continued to make films until her death in 2002 at the age of ninety! Ninety years old and still directing sleaze; this is why I call her Queen Doris! Over the course of her career Wishman directed and produced thirty, wrote twenty-two and acted in nine films. She took a lengthy hiatus after her only straight up horror film A Night to Dismember (1983) failed to attract an audience. She made a return to filmmaking in 2001 with Satan Was a Lady. I was surprised to learn that Queen Doris was the cousin of Max Rosenberg, one of the founders of the UK production company Amicus Productions (The Beast Must Die, The Skull, Dr. Terror’s House of Horror, Torture Garden, etc). Doris embarked on her filmmaking career solo however and borrowed some money from her sister to make the nudie cutie Hideout in the Sun. Her next nudie flick was the aptly named Nude on the Moon which was banned in New York. Despite legislation being passed that allowed nudity in films set in nudist resorts/colonies apparently if those nudist colonies were on the moon they were forbidden. Apparently it was the science-fiction theme the state had issue with. Wishman made a handful more nudie cuties before getting into meatier territory with The Sex Perils of Paulette in 1965. This was the beginning of my favourite era of Wishman filmmaking. Although I had an overwhelming urge to royally rough up the titular whiny wishy-washy Paulette, I loved the hell out of the supporting characters in the film! Four of my five favourite films on this list are from 1965 to 1968 period and I had two more short-listed; My Brother’s Wife (1966) and Too Much Too Often (1968). I particularly enjoyed My Brother’s Wife which had two of my very favourite characters to appear in any Wishman film; the wickedly wanton and narcissistic Zena played by Darlene Bennett and the slippery and sleazilicous Frankie played by Sam Stewart. Wishman focused more often on female characters but My Brother’s Wife gives equal screen time to both sexes. Too Much Too Often is one of the few films in Wishman’s resume that focuses on a male character’s story; bad-ass hustler Mike Torson played by Buck Starr messes with a lot of folks lives without pity.

too much too often

I was a little apprehensive about diving into Wishman’s post sixties resume after checking out Deadly Weapons (1974) featuring Chesty Morgan. The plot for Deadly Weapons (if you are familiar with Chesty Morgan you can figure out what the film’s “deadly weapons” are) sounded pretty damn fun but it just was not very much fun at all. As it turns out there was no need to worry about Wishman post 60s output at all! I enjoyed several of Queen Doris’s films from the 70s and one even made my list! It was an incredibly difficult decision to leave The Immoral Three (1975) off of this list! I enjoyed the hell out of that movie! It’s sleazy, funny, wacky, violent, sexy and tremendous fun! Let Me Die a Woman (1977) is Wishman’s documentary about sex change patients. The documentary included a few tidbits that had me squirming a little but it was actually quite interesting. The completely cat-shit crazy The Amazing transplant is without a doubt, Wishman’s dumbest plot but I have to admit, it provided tons of unintentional laughs and it was great to see Uta Erickson, Larry Hunter and Bernard Marcel from Love Toy reunited! Also making an appearance in The Amazing Transplant is Wishman mainstay Sam Stewart and three of Michael Findlay’s regulars Linda Boyce, Janet Banzet and Suzzan Landau. I had been working from a very simplistic laptop for the last several months which was a huge pain in the ass. I finally got myself set up with a beautiful new home computer and sweet big-ass monitor just a few short days ago! I mention this because I have had some friends and co-workers helping me out with some computer related stuff as of late. A guy I work with offered several times to download this movie and that, as he is constantly downloading movies himself. Well, I finally took him up on the offer. Thinking Doris Wishman’s Come with Me My Love was going to be along the same lines as Love Toy and Immoral Three I had a co-worker burn it onto a DVD for me. When he handed it to me, he said, “You know this is a porn film right?” I chuckled (knowing absolutely nothing whatsoever about the film) and said; “I’m sure there’s lots of nudity and sex but I doubt its graphic. I’ve seen several of Doris Wishman’s films and they are not porn.” I really should have read up on this film. This was porn. Real hairy hard-core, hairy faces in hairy asses, cocks in hairy vaginas seventies porn. It has a vaguely horror oriented plot with a dead husband back for revenge, but it is mostly a hairy fuck flick. Really hairy in case you haven’t caught that already. The only good thing I can say about the film was it was sorta neat when the dead husband walked out of the tacky seventies wallpaper. Oh! And the film also features Annie Sprinkle, who is kinda cute. The final film I feel I should mention is A Night To Dismember. It actually is not a Something Weird Video film, but since I knew I would be covering Doris Wishman during this feature it was one of the first films I watched. I found it on YouTube on New Years Eve and decided to re-watch it. Perhaps it is because I’ve seen a lot more of Doris Wishman’s work at this point but I definitely felt warmer towards the film on a second viewing. Flawed? Oh you bet! But it sure as hell has its memorable moments and its opening scene is pretty damn awesome!

A night to Dismember

There are a few distinct details about Wishman’s films that take some getting accustom to. The big one is the dubbing. No one speaks in a Wishman film; voices are added afterwards or the story is narrated. Wishman reuses locations and never bothers to change the decor or anything else in the room. You will find the same drapes, couch, pictures etc from film to film. Not only is the carpet and the drapes the same but sometimes Ms. Wishman recycles a snippet from a previous movie and adds it into another as filler. Queen Doris is also fond of her irrelevant inanimate objects; which her camera lingers on longingly and often. I was shocked to see an actual location shoot was used in The Immoral Three. One of the main characters travels to Las Vegas and stays in the worst room in the city. It could have been footage the actress took on an actual vacation to Vegas that Wishman spliced into the film but it is still a location. Queen Doris also loves her cutaways! According to wikipedia “A cutaway shot is the interruption of a continuously filmed action by inserting a view of something else. It is usually, although not always, followed by a cut back to the first shot, when the cutaway avoids a jump cut. The cutaway shot does not necessarily contribute any dramatic content of its own, but is used to help the editor assemble a longer sequence. For this reason, editors choose cutaway shots related to the main action, such as another action or object in the same location. For example, if the main shot is of a man walking down an alley, possible cutaways may include a shot of a cat on a nearby dumpster or a shot of a person watching from a window overhead.” We have all seen cutaway shots in films, but Ms. Wishman uses them more often than most. Ever since Richard Brandt pointed it out to me I can’t help but notice now. Damn you Brandt. Like many directors Ms. Wishman uses many of the same actresses and actors. This just makes sense to me. You like the actress or actor’s work and they understand what you want from them it makes for the perfect union. And Ms. Wishman and her mainstays are a delightful union indeed; Darlene Bennett, Dawn Bennett, Sam Stewart, Buck Starr, Bob Oran, Michael Alaimo, Sharon Kent, Uta Erickson, Bernard Marcel and Larry Hunter. Before October 2013 I had seen just one Doris Wishman film; Bad Girls Go To Hell. I have now seen twenty-three of Doris Wishman’s thirty directorial efforts. I am addicted to Queen Doris like crack and I can say without a doubt her films have not only been one of my favourite Something Weird Video discoveries but one of my favourite film discoveries period. A female director is a rare bird and a female exploitation director is rarer still; all hail Queen Doris! Roll out the red carpet! My Favourite Five Doris Wishman films…

INDECENT DESIRES (1968)

Starring: Sharon Kent, Trom Little, Michael Alaimo, Jackie Richards, Buck Starr

An awkward loner named Zeb finds a ring and a doll in a garbage can and takes them home as found treasures. We than meet Ann an office clerk who meets her co-worker Babs each morning so they can walk together to the office. On this particular morning Zeb passes by the two ladies and envisions Ann as a giant version of the doll he found in the garbage. This is the beginning of strange and supernatural shenanigans! Somehow this vision causes a voodoo-esque connection between Ann and the doll and anything that Zeb does to the doll happens to Ann. Initially Zeb spends his time feeling the doll up. As he caresses dolly’s breasts Ann feels the sensation as well. Zeb begins stalking Ann and discovers she has a fiance. The odd young man’s feelings of sexuality eventually turn to bitterness. Indecent Desires’s story is bordering on a horror premise and is the most unusual of all Wishman’s sixties output. The reasoning behind the occurences in the film are never explained, but it by no means diminishes the enjoyment factor. I love the imagery in this film. The doll is a major focus and Ann played by the beautiful Sharon Kent actually looks like a real live doll! Ann is adorable and sexy and spends most of her screen time in underwear, lingerie or naked, involuntarily feeling herself up. Ms. Kent does a fantastic job as Ann. Kent gives a convincing performance of a woman who is not in control of her own movements and is slowly losing her mind. Pretty much silent the entire film but a huge highlight is Michael Alaimo who plays Zeb. We learn little if anything about Zeb’s life but from his actions he is clearly not in his right mind. He spends all his time alone, picks through the garbage and is a stalker. When Zeb first finds the doll he takes it home and sets up a table to place her on so he can admire her. He then grooms her and poses her which is a pretty peculiar thing for a fella to do isn’t it? What would compel a man to pick a doll out of the garbage and take it home in the first place? Indecent desires perhaps? Perhaps Zeb was already aware of his awesome powers of voodoo? Also along for the ride is Ann’s chum Babs who seems to be put in for more sex appeal. She makes out with her reflection and has a sassy sex scene with her new boyfriend. Babs was a lot of frisky fun! I think Indecent Desires is Ms. Wishman’s most creative and esthetically pleasing film. Indecent Desires has a fabulously fun plot, top-notch performances and is my personal favourite from Queen Doris!

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER MAN (1966)

Starring: Agustin Mayor, Barbara Kemp, Sam Stewart, Mary O’Hara, Bob Oran, Darlene Bennett, John B. Brandt, Dawn Bennett, Darlene Cotton, Gigi Darlene, Alan Feinstein, Tracy Lee, Joni Roberts, June Roberts, Louis Silverman, Marlene Starr

Ann’s new hubby Steve is suddenly taken ill and Ann is forced to come up with money to pay the bills. Ann calls on the help of her former roommate Tess to set her up with the escort service she works for which inevitably has dire consequences. Another Day, Another Man is more dialog driven than a lot of Wishman’s films from this period and the visuals are especially memorable. The film features the song used in Something Weird Video’s promo reel played before all of their films; the appropriately chosen The Hellraisers by Syd Dale. It is a great opening tune for this delightfully seedy little film. The hair in this one is as large as it gets! The tower on Ann’s (Barbara Kemp) head is beyond belief! How does one even get hair to stand that tall?! It is seriously fabulous! Barbara Kemp is a fascination to watch; I think she may have been on Valium as she seems to have but one emotion.

Here she is shocked…

Barbara Kemp shocked

Here she is chatting with a friend…

Barbara Kemp not shocked

Shocked and chatting with a friend look remarkably similar. Oh Barb, you made me smile often. Ann is a good woman though, and bad things often happen to good women in Ms. Wishman’s films. Of course, Ann could have gotten a job in an office or a store but who was going to hire her with that hair? Of course Ann was aware of the potential considerable income prostitution could offer and there were a lot of medical bills to pay. Ann’s friend Tess is a great character. A bold woman who does what needs to be done and takes no shit. Lately however business has not been so good and she is beginning to feel less confident. Mary O’Hara is perfect as the hustling and headstrong Tess. Sam Stewart puts in another memorable Wishman performance with his pimp character Bert and his flashback scene is one of the film’s best moments. Funny, sexy, tragic and sleazy; Another Day, Another Man was the second Wishman film I seen and it was the one that really started my Wishman fever.

another day another man

LOVE TOY (1973)

Starring: Bernard Marcel, Pat Happel, Uta Erickson, Larry Hunter

In Love Toy a man named Marcus loses everything in a card game to a creep named Alex who agrees to let him off the hook if he will allow him to spend a night with his teenage daughter Chris. Marcus hesitantly agrees but has second thoughts at which time Alex and his wife Mary tie Marcus up while Alex has his way with his daughter. Poor Chris will never be the same after this night of depravity and sexual merriment. Alex, played with sleazy perfection by Bernard Marcel is a messed up cat who has the young Chris pretend she is his pet, his daughter, his wife, his mother and his mistress. Mary, Alex’s quiet as a mouse wife is played with a beautiful, subtle insanity by the talented and lovely Uta Erickson; she is as screwy as hubby with her mother issues and tendencies towards violence. The unfortunate Chris played by the impossibly young-looking Pat Happel must have been disturbed six ways after playing this role; but she does it so very well. Her emotions from disgust to horror to shock and ecstasy are precisely relayed. Bad dad Marcus is played by Larry Hunter with a quiet but disturbing conviction. The performances are great! The entire film takes place in two rooms that are filled to capacity with seedy and sordid goings-on. Love Toy is a film that lives up to it exploitative promises! A truly delicious salacious piece of seventies cinema! To read my full review click here.

A TASTE OF FLESH (1967)

Starring: Michael Alaimo, Darlene Bennett, Layla Peters, Buck Starr, Peggy Steffans

Hannah a woman Bobi befriended while travelling through Europe shows up in the U.S. out of the blue. Hannah calls Bobi to tell her she is unable to find a room in town and naturally Bobi invites Hannah to stay with herself and roommate Carol. Bobi has a massive crush on Hannah and wastes no time hitting on her much to Hannah’s dismay. Suddenly two men knock on the door claiming to be plumbers and push their way into the apartment. The two men have an agenda and they have been following Hannah since she disboarded the plane. Hannah it turns out is not who she claims and is part of a plan that was hatched months previous when Bobi was visiting Europe. The cat is let out of the bag 25 minutes into the film, but this is a 70ish minute film so I figured telling you about Hannah was a bit too spoily. Hannah is adorable and I loved her cute little Eastern European accent. I learned from David that Peggy Steffans was married to director Joe Sarno; another favourite director I’ve discovered during this Something Weird Video feature! You can count on one review at very least for a Mr. Joseph W. Sarno film before the end of the month. Lovely Darlene Bennett has a feature role as Carol, a sassy, sexy and frightfully easy young woman who makes plans to go away with one of the kidnappers/criminals after a three-minute conversation! Too funny. Frankie, the criminal Carol gets down with is way too slick for his own good. Frankie doesn’t know when to shut up. He is a terrible criminal and is a little too fond of the dames. Buck Starr is well-suited for the role of Frankie; the guy just kinda has a gigalo vibe. The excellent Layla Peters plays Bobi. Bobi’s lesbian dream sequence is definitely one of the films most awesome highlights. It is sexy, romantic, sweet and trippy. Bobi and Hannah have great chemistry; unfortunately for Bobi the awake Hannah has no inkling towards the ladies. Layla Peters as Bobi is a likable albeit frustrated gal. Last but certainly not least is Michael Alaimo who plays no-nonsense Nick. How Nick came to find himself partnered up with a flake like Frankie is a mystery. There is no way an organized bad-ass like Nick would hook up with a dumb-ass like Frankie but this is Doris Wishman’s world and anything goes. Nick plays hardball and he is the one that does most of the roughing up of the ladies in the film; and he does it convincingly too. Alaimo is one of several highlights in A Taste of Flesh. Another nifty looking film full of Wishman regulars with some wonderful creative shots, and a solid premise; perhaps Wishman’s most solid? It is definitely one of my favourite Wishman finales that is a definite. A Taste of Flesh is more of a crime thing than sexploitation and almost borders on a roughie but it is pure Doris Wishman any way you cut it.

BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL (1965)

Starring: Gigi Darlene, Charles E. Mazin, Sam Stewart, Gertrude Cross, Alan Feinstein, Barnard L. Sackett, Darlene Bennett, Marlene Starr, Harold Key

Bad Girls go to Hell was the only Doris Wishman film I had seen prior to this year. I barely remembered it beyond recalling that I liked it. I rented the double feature Bad Girls Go to Hell and Another Day, Another Man from my DVD rental oulet Zip and it was what set off the Doris domino effect. I liked Bad Girls go to Hell but I didn’t love it; I much preferred Another Day, Another Man. After watching twenty-three Wishman films I decided I should go back and re-watch Bad Girls go to Hell. I am so glad I did. As I said, I enjoyed it, but on a re-watch I found so much more to love! Of all Wishman’s films this is as close to a roughie as they get. This unfortunate gal really gets fucked with; literally! It is a ridiculously efficient film clocking in just a smidge over an hour; it is actually a little too short for my liking. The saucy and ridiculously cute Meg played by Gigi Darlene reprimands her husband for working on a Saturday and leaving her all alone. He promises to take her dancing that night to make up for it. Her day however takes an immediate turn for the worst when their building’s janitor attempts to rape her and she kills him in self-defense. She flees after the death of the janitor and continues to meet and part from a veritable parade of folks with intentions of doing her wrong. Poor Meg! Ms. Wishman does put her ladies through some heavy nasty shit! The parade of perverts and malcontents are pretty entertaining and I enjoyed looking back on this one especially for Sam Stewart and Darlene and Dawn’s appearances! Meg meets Sam’s character Ed in the park and he seems like such a nice man. That being said going home with a strange man you meet in the park (especially one in New York) is probably ill-advised. They play house for a while and everything seems to be going honky-dory until she finds a hidden bottle of liquor that is. Me thinketh Ed was on the wagon. After a good beating she moves on to the next situation. That next situation involves the aforementioned Bennett sister’s who play Ellen and Della. Dawn plays Della; a lesbian looking for a roommate and she is freaking hilarious! Everyone is top-notch in this and there is plenty of neat shots, crazy characters, sex and violence and Doris charm to warrant repeat viewings! And the ending? Best Doris Wishman ending EVER.

MY TALE IS HOT (1964) – The Dungeon Review!

Posted in movies, Something Weird Video, USA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2013 by goregirl

stepping into something weirdmtih

Peter Perry Jr. (aka Peter Perry, A.J. Gaylord, Seymour Tokus, Seymour Tuchus, Arthur P. Stootsberry) directed thirteen films of which I have seen three thus far; The Joys of Jezebel, Kiss Me Quick and today’s subject review My Tale is Hot. At this point I have watched fourteen Nudie Cuties from various directors for this feature; I decided I should do a review for at least one of them. I have mentioned in previous posts, the Nudie Cutie’s main objective is to show a lot of naked or partially naked broads. They are always light on story and usually loaded with cheesy humor. Many of the early Nudie Cutie flicks were set in nudist camps/resorts/colonies. Apparently in the early part of the sixties you could show nudity if you set your film in a nudist resort; there were exceptions to that rule. Doris Wishman claimed in an interview that she was not allowed to show nudity in her film Nude on the Moon (1961), which was about a nudist colony on the moon. Despite being set in a nudist colony it had a science fiction theme and therefore could not contain nudity?! Censorship loosened up considerably as the decade wore on. There was no doubt in my mind which Nudie Cutie I would be reviewing. My Tale is Hot has been my favourite by far thanks to the fact that it actually made me laugh regularly and the sets and costumes were absolutely out of this world! Also I am a total sucker for a man in a devil costume!

My Tale is Hot1

My Tale is Hot aka Always on Monday (1964).

Filmed in LIVING SKIN-A-SCOPE!

my tale is hot4

Lucifer is reading his favourite magazine The Ladies Book Companion while his wife Saturna prepares dinner. He reads the following text…

“Ben-Hur Ova the wealthy Arab leader in the United States on a business mission has been chosen by the editors of Ladies Book Companion as their man of the year. Ben, a model husband has been happily married for over twenty years. A successful tycoon in his forties, Ben always finds time for his home life as witnessed by the fact he has sixty-three grandchildren. But most important, Ben has won this award because in the unanimous decision of the selection board he is undoubtedly the world’s most faithful husband. No earthly temptation could possibly sway Ben-Hur Ova from his loving home. His beautiful…”

He stops here because the next page has been torn out. Saturna used it for kindling to get the fire under Hitler re-started.

my tale is hot5

Business has not been good for Lucifer and he needs a new sinner badly. He can not resist the challenge of tempting Ben-Hur Ova to come over to the dark side. Saturna’s taunts only spur him on.

“You haven’t had a faithful husband down here since Henry the Eighth.” -Saturna

“You know Henry the Eighth got a bad rap. Any man smart enough to cut off his wife’s head should be sainted.” -Lucifer

my tale is hot8

my tale is hot9

Lucifer pops up in Ben-Hur Ova’s backyard as Ben’s wife Miasis-Ova is doing some gardening. Just before Lucifer makes his appearance it gets extremely hot and Ben-Hur Ova’s wife strips down to her panties. Alarmed by the appearance of Lucifer in her backyard she runs to tell Ben.

my tale is hot10

Ben-Hur Ova and Lucifer meet. Lucifer hands him his hot to the touch business card made of asbestos:

Lucifer U. Devil
Collector of souls
Garbage disposal specialist
Furnace engineer
Evil Spirit
Magician
Short Order Cook
Undertaker
Caretaker
Takerunder

my tale is hot19

Lucifer begins his parade of temptation by materializing a swimming pool complete with a bathing beauty. “This is the pear-shaped model.” Another pair of women follow and Ben-Hur Ova refuses to make a deal with the devil. “How about putting my backyard back into a flower garden!”

my_tale_is_hot20

Lucifer refuses to give up tempting Ben and introduces him to “Sinner-Vision” starring no other than the new French maid Ben-Hur Ova just hired.

“Where you going?” -Lucifer
“For a walk; and don’t follow me, I want to be alone.” -Ben-Hur Ova

my tale is hot11

my tale is hot12

Of course Lucifer has no intention of giving up on Ben-Hur Ova and the parade of women continues.

my tale is hot13

my tale is hot21

Lucifer and Ben-Hur Ova stop for a devil dog with some girly relish. Girly relish allows you to see through walls and get a glimpse of naked dames like this gal.

my tale is hot14

my tale is hot22

The girly relish upsets Ben-Hur Ova’s stomach and Lucifer gives him some Sexlax. The Sexlax causes Ben to blow a hole clear through the wall and get a gander at this bird. Just look at those feathers!

my tale is hot15

Ben-Hur Ova is parched from the Sexlax and Lucifer takes him to get a drink. Of course Lucifer continues his fruitless attempts to woo Ben with his sinfully lovely ladies.

my tale is hot candy barr

Candy Barr’s Burlesque act interrupts Ben-Hur Ova’s favourite show; The Wonderful World of Disney. The Wonderful World of Disney is Ben-Hur Ova’s favourite show which he always watches on Monday; hence My Tale is Hot’s alternative title Always on Monday. To check out the rest of the images in this set click here.

my tale is hot16

There is a very good reason that Ben-Hur Ova was not tempted by Lucifer’s parade of Nudie Cuties.

my tale is hot17

my tale is hot18

Lucifer fails at his attempt to win Ben over to the dark side. He decides to pack a bag and invite himself to stay with Ben-Hur Ova. Saturna catches wind of this and goes to Ben’s to collect Lucifer much to his chagrin.

There are loads more Nudie Cuties to be found in My Tale is Hot! This is just a small sampling of the chicks, dames, babes and broads that offer up an eyeful! As you can see from the images I included the Something Weird Video print of My Tale is Hot is considerably less than perfect. There were multiple green lines that appeared regularly through the film and at no point is the picture sharp but it was watchable enough; it is never so blurry as to have you questioning what an image is. The colors are surprisingly vibrant considering the picture quality and the visuals are too spectacular not to admire. Every single set in the film is hand-painted. I am a huge fan of homemade set pieces and My Tale is Hot is packed full of them! The humor is definitely cheesy and there are more silly one-liners than you can shake a stick at. What can I say? A lot of it did make me chuckle. If it was not for the copious amount of nudity this film would by very PG. But of course there is copious nudity! There is an excessive amount of nudity that would have the prude in your house running from the room screaming. My Tale is Hot came as a double feature with a second Perry flick The Joys of Jezebel. I did not enjoy Joys nearly as much but it is definitely a visually pleasing film with its highlights. The package overall with the fabulous Something Weird special features which included a ton of Devil-inspired trailers (The Devil’s Garden, The Naked Witch, Olga’s Dance Hall Girls, The Soul Lover, Touch of Satan, and Up in Smoke), Strip Short boudoir Belle featuring Candy Barr, A wacky animated short called Satan in Church, A full length feature called Go Down Death (1944) and a gallery of David F. Friedman Exploitation Art. Overall a package I am very pleased I added to my collection! I actually have a few more Peter Perry Jr. films in my queue as my DVD rental outlet Zip had a number of them available. Some were added intentionally like The Notorious Daughter of Fanny Hill which I rented because it featured Stacey Walker who gave one of my favourite performances during this Something Weird Video feature in A Smell of Honey A Swallow of Brine. I also added Perry’s Mondo Mod; a rare Something Weird Video documentary. The third feature in my queue Revenge of the Virgins was quite by accident as it comes as a double feature with Ramrodder. Peter Perry Jr.’s My Tale is Hot is one of the most entertaining of the Nudie Cutie films and comes highly recommended.

Dungeon Rating: 4/5

Joseph P. Mawra’s Nudie Cutie The Peek Snatchers (1965) is a bunch of stripper/burlesque/Dance acts strung together by a couple of jewel thieves who find a machine that allows them to see any place anywhere in the world. The duo naturally choose to sneak a peek at the world’s forbidden bars and boudoirs hence its title The Peek Snatchers. The humor is very corny, and I spent more time rolling my eyes up to the ceiling than laughing at these two men; but the fact is, I did laugh. There were also some really quality acts (and a few unforgettable ones) in-between the two goofy guys that made The Peek Snatchers quite watchable. When all was said and done I thought The Peek Snatchers was pretty entertaining and one of the better Nudie Cuties.

You never actually see a picture on this contraption!

The first place they peek at is Mexico.

“Mexico is famous for bullfights.”
“Bullfights?”
“Sure, there’s lots of bulls there.”
“Lots of bulls.”
“You know my grandfather use to sell those bulls. Sell them all over the world.”
“All over the world? He was the biggest bull shipper in Mexico!”

This couple’s dance act was pretty damn cool until it came to the removal of the woman’s pants! He REALLY struggled getting those suckers off!

The Peek Snatchers’s most infamous snippet; the erotic snake lady. This woman has three impressively large snakes that she dances with, caresses and deep throats.
