(Sigh) It’s such a cultural spoiler. Only 12 Days into the 2024 year and we already know the Oscar winner.
This film is also called Autopsy, Tarot, Angela and The Magician.
“B” movies in those days had more names than Spanish aristocrats.
You probably remember Sue Lyon. She was the original Lolita in Kubrick’s eponymous 1962 film, which jump-started her career. Kubrick and Seven Arts had signed her to a seven-year contract when she did Lolita, and they gave her plenty of work. She was cast in several major films in the following five years, working for John Ford and John Huston, and alongside A-listers like Sinatra, Burton, Anne Bancroft and George C. Scott. She carried on a public romance with the highly popular hippie-dippie singer, Donovan. She was on the A-List, on top of the world.
When that Seven Arts contract expired, the bottom soon fell out, and she was relegated to the anthology TV shows like Love, American Style, and films as bad as this. She finally gave up the ghost in 1980, when even the most insipid shows like Fantasy Island didn’t hire her any more.
Her private life was messy. When she was 14, she had an affair with a married producer. Subsequent personal events contributed to the decline of her career. She married a black man in 1971, which seems completely irrelevant today, but that was a different time, especially in the South. Interracial marriage was still illegal in some states until 1967! After that marriage failed, she married an incarcerated murderer. She had three other husbands. She got a reputation for being squirrely, and probably for good reason, as her daughter contended that she suffered from bi-polar disorder.
Lyon admitted that she was a troubled soul. She said this in 1996: “My destruction as a person dates from Lolita, which exposed me to temptations no girl of that age should undergo. I defy any pretty girl who is rocketed to stardom at 14 in a sex nymphet role to stay on a level path thereafter.”
She died at age 73 in 2019.
As far as I know, this is her only nude performance, and it’s a really obscure one. This is the first time I’ve ever watched the film, and Sue herself is not even listed in Mr. Skin’s database.
The captures are from a DVD, but not a good one. The quality is not much (if any) better than VHS.
But, dude! It’s Lolita naked!
It’s possible that my site(s) won’t be updated for a while. We are in the middle of a severe blizzard, and we’ve been warned that we may lose power and/or internet.
If that happens, the updates will be missing for a while.
Or things may stay the same. It’s a crap shoot at this point.
Alec Baldwin is a funny and talented man, which ipso facto proves there is no correlation between talent and character.
I tried to find Baldwin’s infamous Twitter attack on Drunken Stepfather, but I could not. I did find something better. Back on June 23, 2012, the tipsy one’s forum posted two pics of Baldwin’s then-fiancee Hilaria, on a day when she was feeling very cheeky.
Hilaria and Alec were married seven days later.
“FKA Twigs is one of the stars of a new Calvin Klein ad campaign but one of the photos have now been banned in the UK by the Advertising Standards Authority.
According to them, this specific ad featuring FKA violates one of its provisions in that it could ‘present her as a stereotypical sexual object’ because the photo places ‘viewers’ focus on the model’s body rather than on the clothing being advertised.'”
You mean like almost every other clothing and perfume ad?
“Khloe Kardashian starting 2024 well by showing nipples in a sexy photo shoot with tmrw Magazine!”
For some people in the public eye, the combination of diet, make-up and surgery produces weird results, but not for Khloe. She transformed herself from a Rosie O’Donnell lookalike into a beauty (although, as demonstrated in the pic above, the lips are a little weird).
