MOVIE ADS: STELLA STEVENS
When I was a kid, I saw Stella Stevens in an old issue of PLAYBOY, and I was hooked!
PLAYBOY was always full of pretentious bullshit, but at least back then, the women were REAL and genuinely beautiful.
That rag is nothing now. In fact, I think they stopped publishing twelve issues per year.
THE NUTTY PROFESSOR was my first cinematic encounter with Stella Stevens. She looks so adorable in this film.
I can't say that I remember much about the movie. I liked Don Knotts a million times more than Jerry Lewis, so that probably influenced my opinion.
Anyway, THE NUTTY PROFESSOR was released on region one DVD by PARAMOUNT.
Don't forget, Ms. Stevens also appears in THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. I had a lot of fun watching that flick. She portrays an ex-hooker that's married to a cop ( played by Ernest Borgnine ).
It's been a long time since I've seen THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE, so I don't remember much, except for Ms. Steven's cute posterior. She co-stars with Jason Robards.
Ms. Stevens looked great as a cowgirl. Hell, she looked great playing almost anything!
This movie was released as a solo disc by WARNER BROS.
It was also released as part of a four movie pack called SAM PECKINPAH'S THE LEGENDARY WESTERN COLLECTION ( also by WARNER BROS ).
I loved the MATT HELM series of films. THE SILENCERS was my favorite, because of Ms. Stevens.
I never liked James Bond, so I was really happy when MATT HELM appeared. I also liked the FLINT flicks.
THE SILENCERS was released as a solo disc by SONY ( and to be released again via IMAGE ENT ).
You can also find THE SILENCERS in a MATT HELM four movie pack. It's called THE MATT HELM LOUNGE ( by SONY ).
LAS VEGAS LADY is about a cool caper in a hot town. Stella Stevens looks really hot in this movie, and I'm not saying that because of the weather.
Las Vegas has changed a lot since I was young. Most casinos used to turn a blind eye to underaged gamblers like myself - unless you won over a certain amount. But, that's a subject for a different blog.
LAS VEGAS LADY was released on region one DVD by RHINO ( as a solo disc ).
Then it was released on region one DVD by BCI ( in a double feature called WELCOME TO THE GRINDHOUSE - paired with POLICEWOMEN ).
It was also released on region one DVD by MILL CREEK ( as part of a 12 film set called BIG SCREEN BOMBSHELLS ).
