January Jones as Sarah Ramirez
Eduardo Noriega as Miguel Ramirez
Ed Harris as Sheriff Jackson
Jason Isaacs as Prophet Josiah
Also appearing, Stephen Root, Amy Madigan, the canine that played Jack the dog, And others...
SWEETWATER is a western, and it takes place in a small town in New Mexico. The town is populated by mostly arrogant bigots and despicable hypocrites.
Most of the townsfolk treat a local Hispanic farmer and his Anglo wife like they were filth.
The farmer's name is Miguel, and they treat him like a foreigner, even though he's the only person in town that's a native! They also lust after Sarah, his wife.
The most vile individuals in town are, a religious leader, and his mindless followers. He calls himself the Prophet Josiah and hides behind religion to justify his hate, greed, bigamy, lust, and homicidal behavior.
Sheriff Jackson comes to Sweetwater to find two brothers, who were both murdered by Josiah and one of his cohorts.
The Sheriff quickly discovers that Josiah is a demon, not a saint.
Jack, Miguel and Sarah's dog, is killed by Josiah's henchmen. A short time later, Miguel is degradingly, and brutally murdered.
Sarah is full of rage and intelligence, and she's going to make every one of those worthless abominations pay for their heartless, hate-filled, and cowardly acts.
Things are NOT going to end well for a lot of people.
Start gathering up rags, cause there's going to be blood everywhere.....
Josiah - "You beast of the earth, you brown-skinned bastard!"
Kingfisher - "Santa Fe senoritas ain't wild enough for you?"
Sheriff - "You ever fuck a sheep? Lots of sheep farmers fuck their sheep. Isn't that how syphilis started?"
Hugh - "My guess is, she'll be whorin' again in no time, just like her mother"
Josiah - "I have washed away your sins, Sarah. You are a member of the white race. You should never have married a man with cursed blood"
Hugh - "Seven dollars to play my flute? Why, I won't pay a penny more over a dollar... even if you do rub my balls"
Sarah - "Feels good in the ass, don't it?"

I knew nothing about SWEETWATER, so it was a great surprise to discover this GEM OF A MOVIE!
I really really really love this film!
It's downright therapeutic to watch Sarah get vengeance, and I loved every fucking minute of SWEETWATER!
New film school students take note! This is the way to make a movie!
Ed Harris is as usual, unforgettable!... He looks like he's having a lot of fun with his character. I laughed my ass off, when the Sheriff beat the shit out of another guy... I'm not going to spoil it for you, just watch the movie.
Jason Isaacs is so good, it's scary. He really does become the religious fanatic Josiah.
January Jones and Eduardo Noriega really do portray a realistic couple, and they make their characters genuinely human.
It's one great performance after another.
Everyone in front of the camera hands-in a truly outstanding performance, regardless of the size of their role!
The folks behind the camera did an incredibly convincing job with the western sets, costumes, camera work, audio, and everything else.
SWEETWATER is fast-paced and the characters - both major and minor - are three-dimensional, and that's the way it should be.
As an added bonus, you also get some female nudity. Unfortunately, you also get some man-butts. Oh well, nothing in life is perfect... ha-ha-ha.

I know I've said this many times before, but I feel I should say it again, I don't like superheros.
So why did I buy a book about the history of SUPERMAN?.... Because, I like Joe Shuster's art. Especially, after I found out about his work for NIGHTS OF HORROR.
SUPERMAN: THE HIGH-FLYING HISTORY OF AMERICA'S MOST ENDURING HERO seems like a really interesting book.
I've only had time to skim through a few chapters, but I like what I've read.
Chapter 4 "SPEED OF SOUND", deals with, the radio show, the animated serial, the first live action tv show, the first actor to portray the live action version of SUPERMAN, the first actress to portray the live action version of Lois Lane, Fleischer studios, and more.
This book contains a sixteen page photo section ( color and black & white ). This part covers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Bud Collyer of the radio version of SUPERMAN, the Fleischer animated serials, the fifties tv show, the comic books, the seventies animated tv show called SUPER FRIENDS, the seventies SUPERMAN movie, the LOIS & CLARK tv series, SMALLVILLE, and more.

Above is a newspaper ad for the animated SUPERMAN serial ( Miami Florida U.S.A. - Oct. 1948 )... This is NOT from the book
DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
It was only one fuckin' dollar, hell yeah!
There was NO way I was going to leave this on the shelf!
I'm lucky that I have two DOLLAR TREE stores that are close. So, when I don't find certain items at one location, I can usually find them at the other store.
As you may know, Joe Shuster was one of the creators of SUPERMAN.
However, most folks still aren't familiar with the work he did for an infamous underground comic called NIGHTS OF HORROR.
Most of the characters he drew for that series of books were kinky versions of Clark, Lois, Lex, Lana, and Jimmy.
This part of Mr. Shuster's career is detailed in a book called SECRET IDENTITY: THE FETISH ART OF SUPRMAN'S CO-CREATOR JOE SHUSTER.
I'm really hoping I'll find this book at a bargain price.
Above are examples of Joe Shuster's fetish art - screengrabs are from a YOUTUBE video

Screengrabs from the animated SUPERMAN serial ( chapter called ARTIC GIANT - from a TGG DIRECT DVD )
The FLEISCHER STUDIOS animated SUPERMAN serials from the forties, are outstanding examples of traditional animation at it's best. In my eyes, they're works of art.
It's been released on region one DVD many times, and by many different companies.

Newspaper ad for BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS playing as part of a double feature... from Daytona Florida U.S.A. ( Feb. 9, 1958 )
This movie has always put a smile on my face.
How can you not like a big, maniacal, and horny, extraterrestrial brain, that's hellbent on enslaving the earth?
It can also absorb itself into other life forms and control them.
Newspaper tv listings above are from 1963 ( top ), and 1979 ( bottom )
This flick was constantly being shown on local tv channels, when I was younger.
BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS was written by Ray Buffum, and directed by Nathan Juran.
It stars, John Agar as Steve, Joyce Meadows as Sally, Robert Fuller as Steve's hamburger crazed friend / co-worker, unknown canine as George the dog, and a few other familiar faces.
After all this time, I still have fun watching this movie.
Screengrabs above are from an online video
I love the scene involving Steve amorously attacking Sally in the backyard, and that kick directed at her dog, when Mr. Bow-wow tries to defend her. It's so unintentionally hilarious.
Screengrabs above are from an online video
I also love the final battle between steve and the brain.
Almost forgot to mention John Agar's evil laughter.
John Agar was - and still is - the real KING OF THE Bs!... Eat shit Bruce Campbell... Yeah, I know a lot of folks still like him, and once, I did too... until I met him...
This movie was released on VHS by RHINO. I'm not sure, but another company have have also released it the United States.
A region one DVD was released by IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT.

Above is Glen Orbik's artwork on the cover of the forthcoming ILLUSTRATED edition of Stephen King's JOYLAND
I just found out, one of my favorite artists died.
He did a lot of covers for the HARD CASE CRIME series of books. Plus comics, and many other things.
I never got to meet him, and I only contacted him via email a few times. He seemed like a genuinely kind person.
My sincerest sympathies go out to his family and friends.....

Screengrab of Ed Wood - from NYMPHO CYCLER... I made it from a poor quality online video.
During the past week, I've been watching Ed Wood flicks, and thinking about him.
Above is a print ad for NYMPHO CYCLER - playing as part of a double feature ( Brandenton Florida - 1976 ).
I've only seen clips from NYMPHO CYCLER. It looks like a lot of fun.
Screengrabs from FINAL CURTAIN ( from an online video )
FINAL CURTAIN is one of Ed Wood's so-called "lost" films - how lost can it be, if I found it on the internet?... ha-ha-ha.
It's supposedly a pilot for a supernatural themed anthology show.
The whole episode is done voice-over style, and it actually does feel a little creepy, and silly.
As far as I know, it's NOT currently on any region one DVD, nor has it ever been released on VHS.
Above are print ads for DROP OUT WIFE - it played at two drive-in theaters in neighboring towns ( Bangor Maine - 1973 )
DROP OUT WIFE stars, Angela Carnon as Peggy, and the cute Terri Johnson as Janet.
I like this flick. It's got some surreal moments, and I thought it was very interesting.
Screengrabs from DROP OUT WIFE ( from a S'MORE ENTERTAINMENT DVD )
Both Stephen C. Apostolof, and Ed Wood worked on it.
Above is a print ad for BEACH BUNNIES - From Sept. 10, 1977
BEACH BUNNIES bored me shitless - especially when Mariwin Roberts ( Lorrie ), and Wendy Cavanaugh ( Bonnie ), weren't on screen.
This was another Stephen C. Apostolof, and Ed Wood flick.
It was released on pressed DVD by S'MORE ENTERTAINMENT.
Above is a print ad for ORGY OF THE DEAD - playing as a co-feature ( Spokane Washington - 1967 )
I love ORGY OF THE DEAD!
Criswell!... What a hoot that guy was!
As a kid, I was mesmerized by all the sexy women in this flick.
Fawn Silver seemed to have a very short career in exploitation flicks ( unless she used another name ).
I've been told, she appeared in a men's publication called MILLIONAIRE MAGAZINE ( May 1966 ). I could not find a picture of the cover, or interior shots.
Pat Barrington had an incredibly hot body. I've seen her in at least three or four other films.
She supposedly appeared in an episode of THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. ( THE COME WITH ME TO THE CASBAH AFFAIR - credited as Camille Grant ).
Screengrabs are from an episode of THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.... What do you think?... Is it Pat Barrington?... I made the screengrabs from a low quality, and apparently badly cropped, online video... Did she wear wigs, or constantly change her hair color?
ORGY OF THE DEAD looks great, that's for certain.... The cinematographer is credited as Robert Caramico. His credits are impressive. Below, is a partial list...
JUST SHOOT ME! ( tv series )
DALLAS ( tv series - original version )
FALCON CREST ( tv series )
THE WALTONS ( tv series )
He also worked on a lot of made-for-tv and theatrical movies. Such as...
KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK
THE DOBERMAN GANG
EATEN ALIVE ( Tobe Hooper )
THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON
Question, was ORGY OF THE DEAD the first film, Stephen C. Apostolof and Ed Wood worked together on?
It was released on pressed DVD by S'MORE ENTERTAINMENT.
Above are print ads for FUGITIVE GIRLS aka 5 LOOSE WOMEN ( Victoria Texas 1975 - on top & Fredericksburg Virginia 1975 - on bottom )
Above is a print ad for PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE - playing as a co-feature ( Athens Texas - 1959 )
Above is a print ad for BRIDE OF THE MONSTER - playing as a co-feature ( Rome Geogia - 1957 )
Above screengrab from the PDF version of TASCHEN MAGAZINE ( winter 2014 issue ). The article mentions Ed Wood.

Covers for various ED WOOD DVDs... From left to right, ED WOOD'S DIRTY MOVIES ( a three movie collection that contains THE YOUNG MARRIEDS - ALTERNATIVE CINEMA ), BIG BOX OF WOOD ( contains thirteen films - S'MORE ENTERTAINMEMT ), NYMPHO CYCLER ( four film collection - ALPHA BLUE ARCHIVES ), and BRIDE OF THE MONSTER ( IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT )
There are also countless grey-market DVD-Rs of his rare, and even rarer x-rated films ( from various companies - as usual, caveat emptor ).
I'm still hoping someone will make a SERIOUS documentary about his life. I've got a lot of questions - like where the hell was the V.A., or social services, when he needed help?

NOTE - On Oct. 20, 2015, I made one correction to the text, modified two photos, added one quote, and added two new photos.
"Then, on cue, she delivered her trademark series of orgasmic whimpers. This was what the suits were waiting for - and they filled the room with the unmistakably pungent odor that was the essence of every sleaze palace on forty-second street"
The above quote is from chapter 5 - page 64 - of BEAVER STREET.
This is a non-fiction book about Robert Rosen's time working for several adult publications from 1983 to 1999.
I've always been fascinated by insider stories, and Mr. Rosen's accounts are definitely fascinating, and fun.
One of my favorite things about this book, is the way Mr. Rosen writes. He's so descriptive and detailed in his accounts. During certain chapters, it felt as if I was actually there, watching everything happen.
It's too bad schools didn't have history books written as honestly, or as entertainingly as BEAVER STREET - everyone would have learned a lot more, and without being forced to.
I read BEAVER STREET for three nights in a row, until I finished, and I loved every minute of it.
After I finished reading the book, I realized I had far too many pages of notes ( and I couldn't read at least half of it ). There was no way, I was going to be able to express all of my feelings without writing something as big as a novella.
I had a difficult time deciding what to mention.
I've TRIED to condense my thoughts, but I think I may have failed.....
Above are SWANK magazine covers from the 1960's and 1970's... NOTE - the photos are NOT from the book
When Mr. Rosen was in college, he worked at a newspaper called OBSERVATION POST.
That same publication sent him to watch a movie called ANIMAL LOVER. It's about a woman that has sex with several beasts, and his job was to review it.
Screengrabs are from a trailer for FASCINATION ( from DISTRIBPIX / VIDEO-X-PIX )... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
"Having studied an issue of High Society over the week-end, I understood that the job was going to require a strong stomach, not to mention a few minor adjustments in my moral code"
The above quote is from chapter 4 - page 21 - of BEAVER STREET.
When he was still working for the OBSERVATION POST, the shit-hit-the-fan, after a certain piece of art was published. Later, photos based on that art created an even bigger shit-storm.
Below is a MICRO-SIZED list of SOME of the publications Mr. Rosen edited ( using the name Bobby paradise )...
D-CUP, HIGH SOCIETY, SHAVED, SWANK, STAG, STACKED, PLUMP & PINK, FOR ADULTS ONLY, BLACK LUST, LESBIAN LUST, BLONDES IN HEAT, X-RATED CINEMA, and HUNDREDS of others!
FYI - Most of these magazines sell for a lot of money these days.
Above are HIGH SOCIETY magazine covers... From left to right, Savannah, Ginger Lynn & Amber Lynn, and Ashlyn Gere... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
Mr. Rosen lands a job at HIGH SOCIETY... I found all the stories about staff meetings, both humorous and even a little scary.
During one staff meeting, someone suggests putting a phone number on a centerfold - which gives birth to phone sex.
As most of us already know, phone sex was hugely successful... $70,000 per week sounds great, doesn't it?
His boss, Carl Ruderman, sounds like the very definition of overbearing.
Reading about his co-workder, Joseph Angelini, gave me the creeps. He sounds like the kind of person that makes you feel, as if you just walked into a big pile of cow shit, know what I mean?
Another co-worker, Maria Bellamari, seemed to be his only friend at that job.
There seemed to be a lot of paranoia about archrival HUSTLER magazine, which resulted in some very odd behavior.
There's also some really interesting info about Gloria Leonard and her time at this publication.
I almost forgot to mention the asshole incident - it's directly connected to Larry Flynt, and I could not stop laughing.
Unfortunately - or fortunately - Mr. Rosen is cut loose from HIGH SOCIETY.
Above are SWANK magazine covers... From left to right, scream queen Michelle Bauer aka Pia Snow, Taija Rae, and Seka... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
Now, Mr. Rosen gets hooked up with SWANK... And he finally gets "full medical benefits" and some other good things... He didn't get any of that with HIGH SOCIETY ( cheap bastards ).
We get to meet Susan Netter, the editor of STAG ( part of SWANK ). I had a lot of sympathy for her. She seemed to be very smart and extremely unappreciated.
Above are magazine covers for STAG with Kandi Barbour, STAG'S ADULT EROTICA with Buffy & Keisha, and STAG'S X-RATED VIDEO with Cindy Sterling... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
Ms. Netter appeared to be in a no-win situation. She really was damned if she did, and damned if she didn't!... I hope she's doing well.
In my opinion, Mr. Rosen's new boss, Chip Goodman, treated Ms. Netter like crap on the bottom of a shoe. During the course of reading this book, I really came to loathe Chip Goodman. He should have changed his last name to BADman.
He also grabs a female co-worker's breasts. Her name is Pam Katz, and reading about it really pissed me off. Think about his shameless sense of entitlement!
Screengrabs are from a trailer for DEEP INSIDE ANNIE SPRINKLE ( from DISTRIBPIX / VIDEO-X-PIX )... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
Mr. Rosen talks about editing Annie Sprinkle's column, and also mentions a film called ORIENTAL TECHNIQUES IN PAIN AND PLEASURE. Why do I remember this? Because he describes how Annie shoves fifteen billiard balls up a man's ass, and then proceeds to shove her arm up the same derriere!... OUCH!
A woman named Georgina Kelly, and her daughter, are mentioned repeatedly. She was Mr. Rosen's friend / occasional co-worker / girlfriend. She made quite an impression on me. I thought she was smart, ambitious, creative, and a bit confusing.
Screengrabs are from a trailer for MARASCHINO CHERRY ( from DISTRIBPIX / VIDEO-X-PIX )... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
"He thinks somebody's giving away phone-sex secrets to Hustler. He thinks Hustler's spying on us, and that there's an informer in the office"
The above quote is from chapter 4 - page 28 - of BEAVER STREET.
One of my favorite stories, involves Ms. Kelly doing a photo shoot during a sex show. It's being performed in front of an audience, at SHOW WORLD in New York. She tells a famous adult performer the following, "You can get your ugly twat out of here if you don't like the way I do things" ( quote is from chapter five - page 64 ). I don't know why that made me laugh, but it did.
I hope Ms. Kelly and her daughter are doing well.
Maria Bellanari, one of his former co-workers from HIGH SOCIETY shows up at SWANK and is hired by Mr. Rosen. We learn she has an unusual interest in Charles Manson, and John Hinckley. Even though I felt bad for her, I also got an uncomfortable vibe from her.
Above are some book covers for, the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN OMNIBUS ( VOLUME 1 ), THE GODFATHER, A SWELL LOOKING BABE, GORKY PARK, and DEAD STREET.... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
One of my favorite parts of the book, deals with SWANK's history, and it's ties to MARVEL comics, men's adventure magazines, LION BOOKS, SCREEN STARS magazine, Mario Puzo, and more!
Above is a book cover for MEN'S ADVENTURE MAGAZINES, SCREEN STARS magazine cover, and a poster for the movie SPLASH... NOTE - the photos are not from the book
We also get a closer look at Chip Goodman and how his mind worked.
In my opinion, shrinks and universities from all over the country, would have loved to spent time studying Mr. Rosen's former bosses, and many of his co-workers.
HIGH SOCIETY and SWANK sounded like breeding grounds for ulcers, nervous breakdowns, and homicidal thoughts.
Above is a newspaper clipping about the Traci Lords scandal ( from 1986 )... NOTE - the photo is not from the book
QUOTE from Ginger Lynn - "Traci's just a cunt... She's just a two-faced, backstabbing, dead-eyed bitch. I hope her tits rot and fall off. I really can not stand her. She's evil, nasty person"... ( quotes are from her interview with the RIALTO REPORT - Nov. 2, 2014 - at the 43 min. mark ).
After reading Mr. Rosen's thoughts on the Traci Lords scandal, it really changed the way I look at her.
It also reminded me of a lot of things I had forgotten.
I now have a far easier time understanding why Ginger Lynn and countless others feel so much animosity towards Traci, and where all the anger is coming from.
Traci should have spent time in prison, no if's, and's, or but's about it!
Why wasn't the state of California, or the federal government held responsible for issuing her an OFFICIAL I.D., and OFFICIAL PASSPORT?!
This mess would never have happened if they had NOT stamped her lie with an OFFICIAL SEAL OF APPROVAL!
The government also knew she was underage, A YEAR BEFORE the news was ever made public, and yet, they did NOTHING!
What does that make them?!
Did any state, or federal employees, go to jail?!... Oh, I forgot, they're ABOVE THE LAW!
They need to be reminded who they're working for! They also need to be reminded, if they are above the law, then so is everybody else!
Remember the movie called CATCH ME IF YOU CAN?... It was based on the life of Frank W. Abagnale, and his book.
QUOTE is from ABAGNALE.COM - "Between the ages of 16 and 21, he successfully posed as an airline pilot, an attorney, a college professor and a pediatrician, in addition to cashing $2.5 million in fraudulent checks in every state and 26 foreign countries"
Mr. Abagnale started his shenanigans when he was 16 YEARS OLD! He was also ultimately held accountable for his actions, Traci Lords was NOT!
In my opinion, if Traci had been a boy, I sincerely doubt the government, or the media, would have given a rat's ass - even if he had turned up dead!
In our society, being female automatically equals victim and male equals evil-spawn-from-hell.
There are still too many DOUBLE STANDARDS. New laws need to be created and old laws need to be updated - the way they're being updated to deal with all the female sexual predators. Those abominations have gotten away with victimizing far too many people, for far too long!
And yes, Mr. Rosen also talks about Meese and other scumbags.
This is supposed to be about the book, not my rants... So, enough of that.
Above is a print ad for SCREW magazine - with picture of Al Goldstein... NOTE - the photo is not from the book
There's more!... We also learn about a grisly murder, S&M, Canadian censorship, the meese commission report, Nixon, Buck Henry, and find out the value of female pubic hair... I'm still NOT done...
SCREW magazine and Al Goldstein are also part of this book.
Mr. Rosen drove a cab at one point, and we also find out about an ugly incident involving John Lennon's former personal assistant.
There seems to be a lot of people in publishing with the last name of Goodman... ha-ha-ha.
I almost forgot to mention that Mr. Rosen becomes the target of a squirting boob. I thought it was bizarre, totally gross, and very funny.
Other things covered in BEAVER STREET are, the tragedy of forgotten adult performer Trinity Loren - and how it relates to Traci Lords, the VHS revolution, the internet revolution, SWANK's sale to a printer, and Mr. Rosen's last day at that publication.
Did I leave anything out?... Yes, I did, I left out a lot!
