Gigi Darlene in HOT NIGHTS ON THE CAMPUS
I can NOT find any information on Ms. Darlene's current status.
According to the audio commentary on ALTERNATIVE CINEMA'S SEXPLOITERS DVD, her real name is Leonora Rheine.
I've been told that Gigi Darlene is not her only pseudonym.
Gigi Darlene in MUSIC TO STRIP BY
I thought Leonora Rheine was INCREDIBLY CUTE.
She was the very definition of the word voluptuous!
A color short was the first film I saw her in ( don't remember the name ). That was in the late seventies, and I've loved watching her ever since.
Ms. Rheine was not your typical exploitation queen. She was extremely memorable. The camera REALLY loved her.
Gigi Darlene in HOT NIGHTS ON THE CAMPUS
I don't know if any of her films had a legit VHS release. I could only find her films on bootleg tapes.
What's more appropriate for a turkey of a holiday, than a killer turkey movie?
I've apologized to all turkeys before, and I feel obligated to do it again.
I've used the word turkey in a derogatory manner, but I really mean NO offense to turkeys. I ask for your forgiveness.
It's fun listening to a foul-mouthed killer fowl... Get it?.. foul?.. fowl?.. ha-ha?
FYI: Part TWO is called part THREE... Just enjoy it, and don't ask questions.
THANKSKILLING was released on region zero DVD ( NTSC ) by MVD VISUAL.
You can also watch it for free on HULU.

Judy Adler in CONFESSIONS OF A BAD GIRL!
I can NOT find info on Ms. Adler's current status.
When I was young, I thought Ms. Adler was amazingly adorable. She was truly unforgettable.
I loved watching her on bootleg VHS tapes during the late 70s.
Judy Adler in HOT NIGHTS ON THE CAMPUS
Ms. Adler never seemed to get the same amount of attention that Gigi Darlene, Darlene Bennett, and June Roberts received.
I do NOT know if Judy Adler is her real name.
Ms. Adler used a few pseudonyms, such as Judy Reinhardt, Judy Young, and maybe a few others.
I do NOT know how many of her films had a legit VHS release.
FALLEN ANGELS is a documentary about the adult industry ( as it existed in the early to mid eighties ).
It's honest, unintentionally funny, and much better than you might think.
QUOTE from the film ( customer that's renting the CAMP BEAVERLAKE tape ) - "It's a funny title... Ya' know, when I was a kid and went to camp, I always looked for beaver. Now that I'm an adult, I'm still looking for beaver"
Do you think these customers ever got together and had in-depth discussions about these flims?... "Did the blowjob in scene three, represent humanity's callous and destructive attitude towards mother nature?"...... hummmm.....
I wonder if some of those guys slept with their rental tapes? ( like a kid sleeps with a teddy bear ).
At one point, you'll see Traci Lords attending the premiere of NEW WAVE HOOKERS. Obviously, this happened BEFORE her secret was exposed.
There was a time, when a lot of adult movies were actually real movies - but with real sex.
So please keep in mind, that when this documentary was released, most adult "films" were NO longer real "movies".
You can NOT compare films like THE PRIVATE AFTERNOONS OF PAMELA MANN, or THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES, or even WANDA WHIPS WALL STREET, to all the lowest common denominator shot-on-video crapfests that replaced them.
The mid eighties seemed to be the beginning of the end for real adult movies. When I say "real adult movies", I'm referring to films that actually used SCRIPTS with real stories, and gasp, exterior scenes shot on location!
"parking in rear"... get it?... ha-ha-ha....
What do you suppose he's thinking about?.... ha-ha-ha-ha....
I don't know which company released FALLEN ANGELS on VHS. But, I do remember winning this tape - and a few others - in a video rental store contest. I no longer have it, or the other tapes.
As far as I know, a legit region one DVD does NOT exist. However, you can get a grey-market DVD-R from J4HI.COM... NOTE: I do NOT own a copy, so I can't tell you if it's worth buying.
Darlene Bennett in SEX PERILS OF PAULETTE ( top ), and THE ROOM MATES ( bottom )
I can NOT find any current info on the Bennett sisters.
The mid to late seventies was when I first saw them - via bootleg VHS ( it was a short film ).
Anyway, I never forgot them.
Darlene was my favorite.

They always seemed to have fun performing, and that always put a smile on my face.
I don't know if either of them used their real names.
SYNAPSE released OLGA'S GIRLS - with Darlene - on DVD.

Could you save the world with a wad of chewing gum, a dust bunny, and a used tampon?!.... Well, MacGyver could!
That guy was really handy with just about anything!
This show was McCheesy and that's why I liked it. Plus, Richard Dean Anderson seemed to be having fun with his role.
I never watched the entire series, but I did enjoy the episodes I saw.
As you probably know, MacGyver was played by Richard Dean Anderson.
One of my favorite episodes was called MacGYVER's WOMEN.
"HOW OLD?!.. I thought she was 31!.. Honest!" - The preceding quote was NOT from the show... I'm just being a smart-ass...
"Hey MacGyver!, weren't you going to ride me like a pony?" - The preceding quote was NOT from the show...
To avoid dealing with his three female houseguests, MacGyver goes to his bedroom and watches an old western. Minutes later, he falls asleep and becomes part of the movie he was watching. His female guests are also part of his dream... he-he-he. Get your mind out of the gutter, it ain't that kind of dream.
Anyway, the three female characters are played by, Traci Lords, Kim Zimmer, and Brigitta Stenberg.
I think there were two or three made-for-tv MacGYVER flicks, but I'm not sure.
I don't think the series - or movies - were released on VHS domestically.
Individual series sets - and movies - were released on region one DVD by PARAMOUNT.
The COMPLETE SERIES was also released on region one DVD by PARAMOUNT... It ain't cheap!...

This is a really RARE film.
BLOOD NASTY is a supernatural-horror-comedy.
A nice guy crook, named Roy Flowers, is double-crossed and murdered.
Roy comes back from the dead, after he's possessed by another deceased crook named Luis "Blade" Orlando... and sexy-bloody-wackiness ensues.
Linnea Quigley plays Blade's psychic-stripper girlfriend.
I don't think it ever had a legit VHS release in the United States. That's probably why I owned a bootleg tape for years ( I no longer have it ).
I've been told that BLOOD NASTY was released on VHS in Germany, and a few other countries.
As I write this, BLOOD NASTY has still NOT been released on region one DVD... So get it any way you can!
It's been years since I've seen it... Thank goodness for YOUTUBE!
After Ron Harris released AEROBICISE, it seemed like everbody jumped on the exercise video bandwagon.
I think Traci Lords appeared in two direct to VHS "exercise" films ( wink, wink ). One is called WARM UP WITH TRACI LORDS, and the other one is entitled ADVANCED JAZZTHETICS.
I've been told the content is the same on both tapes. One version is supposedly longer than the other. However, I can NOT verify any of this information.
WORDS OF WISDOM AKA QUOTES from WARM UP WITH TRACI LORDS.....
"When we get to the HARD stuff, you will notice that it's fast paced"
"Keep your tummy firm and tight, if it hurts you gotta fight!"
"Roll your hips round and round, a perfect circle should be found... turn, turn, feel it burn"
"Don't jerk it hard, keep it smooth"
"Twist it now, the other way, you'll feel better all the day"
"Stretch it!... YEAH!"
"Flex your arms, MUSCLES grow"
"Do it softly, till you're sore"
"Pull!... Stretch it!"
"Pull it!.. pull it!.. pull it!"
"Feel the tightness in your rear, MUSCLES will soon appear"
"Press your pelvis to the air, keep your can nice and square"
"Wipe it off, if you're wet"
"Legs apart, up you'll sit, thrust it twice"
"PULL IT!, DO IT!, HARDER!, GOOD!"
Did those quotes enlighten you?
This SEXexercise video... sorry, I meant exercise video, is yet another example of folks trying to cash-in, on the sweat-is-sexy craze.
WARM UP WITH TRACI LORDS is unintentionally HILARIOUS and even a little SLEAZY... I highly recommend it!
I've always had a lot of mixed feelings about Traci, but I love watching her action flicks.
Both, WARM UP WITH TRACI LORDS, and ADVANCED JAZZTHETICS were released on VHS ( I can not remember by which companies ).
Both of these "work-out" programs MAY have been released twice on region one DVD ( by BCI ).
The first DVD is called JAZZTHETICS.
The second DVD is called 10 BEST WORKOUTS.
Once again, I can NOT confirm that these films are actually on these discs.
I love short stories, and short films. I don't think either gets the respect or amount of attention they deserve.
All the short stories in this collection were written by a young Lawrence Block.
I've only been able to read a few stories so far, but I like them a lot.
I'm very happy to add ONE NIGHT STANDS AND LOST WEEKENDS to my collection of "block-books".

A few weeks ago, I saw a cardboard display at one of my local WALMARTS. It contained 8, 12, and 20 movie packs. They were all priced at FIVE DOLLARS each.
Just for the record, I'm NOT cheap, I'm just broke... there's a BIG difference.
However, even if I was "well-off", I'd still have a difficult time trying to justify the purchase of a single movie DVD for more than five dollars - it just seems like a waste of money. There are SOME exceptions, but not many.
During the past few years, I've eliminated almost all of my single movie discs ( I still find "lost" discs in closets and storage bins ).
Anyway, below is a list of MILL CREEK sets I've recently purchased.....
DEADLY SECRETS - 8 movies
DEADLY DESIRES - 8 movies
TABOO TALES - 12 movies
TOP OF THE CLASS - 12 movies
FREAK SHOW CINEMA - 12 movies
OLD WEST OUTLAWS - 20 movies
FUEL INJECTED FILMS - 20 movies
UNDER ENEMY FIRE - 20 movies
In the past, WALMART had 50 movie packs on sale for ten dollars each.
Plus, I occasionally find movies in the bargain bin by companies WALMART usually doesn't carry, such as IFC. You never know what you're going to find in their bargain bins.
I'll be writing posts for each of these sets when I have time.
