TELEVISION ADS: STAR TREK


Newspaper ad for STAR TREK ( from Spokane Washington U.S.A. - Feb. 16, 1968 ).

I was NOT a big fan of STAR TREK during my youth. But, I would still watch it, and I actually liked some of the episodes. STAR TREK did some gutsy things. Such as, occasionally tackling subject matter, that most shows of the era wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

I've never understood the appeal of William Shatner. I've always felt ambivalent towards him.

However, I did like Leonard Nimoy ( 1931 – 2015 ). He did a lot of different things - writing, photography, and more.

He also had a long career.

Mr. Nimoy did A LOT of tv shows, and also appeared in theatrical films. I really liked watching his character in the 1978 version of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS.

Mr. Nimoy will be missed by many.....

QUOTES BELOW ARE FROM THE NASA WEBSTIE ( February 27, 2015 ).....

NASA WEBSITE

"NASA is mourning the passing today of actor Leonard Nimoy, most famous for his role as Star Trek's Vulcan science officer Mr. Spock. The sci-fi classic served as an inspiration for many at NASA over the years, and Nimoy joined other cast members at special NASA events, including the 1976 rollout of the shuttle Enterprise, named for the show's iconic spacecraft"

CENSORSHIP COMING TO BLOGGER.....



Below are quotes from BLOGGER's new photo and video "policies". See quotes below.....

"Adult content policy on Blogger"

"Starting March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger"

"Note: We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts"


The last quote is truly laughable! It's so open to interpretation!



What the hell has happened to BLOGGER?!... It appears they've turned into the MORAL MAJORITY!

Say hello to the PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF AMERICA! Or say hello to the Christian equivalent of Saudi Arabia!... Either way, it's a NO win situation!

BLOGSPOT was one of the few blog hosting sites, where you were TRULY FREE to EXPRESS your self without fear of CENSORSHIP!

NOTE... It is NUDITY that is being TARGETED!... The new changes will NOT affect HATE GROUPS, or PHOTOS / VIDEOS of DEAD HUMANS, or ATROCITIES, or REAL VIOLENCE, or other types of TRUE OBSCENITIES!

Hey BLOGGER, be careful what you wish for.... You may end up becoming the next MY SPACE!

Well, I've got A TON of photos to delete folks.....

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PATRICIA WYMER?



I really liked this woman, and I had a big childhood crush on her. Especially after I saw Ms. Wymer in THE YOUNG GRADUATES.

I also enjoyed this movie when I was young, and still do.

Would it be accurate, to describe THE YOUNG GRADUATES as the WONDER YEARS on acid?.... No it wouldn't, but that would be very interesting to see.



I think THE YOUNG GRADUATES should be described as the cinematic equivalent of a vintage sleazy novel, and I mean that in the best way possible!

Here's a list of some of this movie's contents...

Students that possess the intelligence of carrots and baked potatoes.

An unethical relationship between a teacher and student ( he's married and she just turned 18 ).

A cool looking Meyers Manx.

A stupid fist fight.

A skinny-dipping scene with very little skin from Ms. Wymer.

A short but wild road trip.

Pissed-off bikers.

Capitalistic hippies with drugs.

A shower scene involving Terri Johnson ( a very nice bonus ).

And last, but not least, an alcoholic drink thrown at someone's face, and the extremely over dramatic reaction that follows ( I couldn't stop laughing ).



THE YOUNG GRADUATES was released on region one DVD many tiimes, by BCI and MILL CREEK.





Another Wymer flick is called THE BABYSITTER.

I don't like this movie as much as THE YOUNG GRADUATES. But she's the star, and that means, more screen time for Ms. Wymer... Plus, she shows a lot of skin.

So what's the movie about?... Well, the title should tell you a lot.

Lets go into the cinematic-kitchen and make ourselves a snack... First, add an out-of-shape older man that has an affair with his babysitter. Then add some blackmail, Sappho-shenanigans, and even a spicy taco eating scene. All good ingredients for a great tasting cheesy-sleazy delight. Well, it makes me happy, and that's all that matters.

THE BABYSITTER has been released several times on region one DVD, by BCI, MILL CREEK, and CODE RED.



I saw her for a third time in the supernatural flick called THE WITCHMAKER.

This movie is also known as THE LEGEND OF WITCH HOLLOW.

Ms. Wymer's role is small, but you'll remember her.



Larry Vincent also makes an appearance in this film.

I don't think this movie was available on "pressed" disc, until CODE RED released it.

Unfortunately, it appears that WITCHMAKER aka LEGEND OF WITCH HOLLOW is out-of-print.

The only other release that I know of, is on DVD-R. It's from a company called SINISTER CINEMA.



Supposedly, she appeared in a made-for-tv musical special called WHERE THE GIRLS ARE. I've never met anyone who has seen it.



According to the IMDB, Ms. Wymer appeared in a tv show called MALIBU U.

The show aired on ABC.

I can NOT find any record of MALIBU U having ever been released on VHS, or region one DVD... In fact, I can't even find it on grey-market DVD-R.

Fortunately, I found a few online videos.


Screengrabs of Patricia Wymer in MALIBU U... Can anyone confirm that this is indeed Ms. Wymer?... I made these screengrabs from a poor quality YOUTUBE video.

She only seems to have a handful of credits listed on the IMDB... There must be more.

I can't find very much information about her.

Did she write, or produce?

Did she model for men's magazines?... I think I may have seen her in a couple of old publications, but I'm NOT certain.

Did she perform a strip act, or do XXX work?

Is she still alive?.....

MOVIE ADS: ALL AMERICAN GIRL



ALL AMERICAN GIRL is a rare flick. It's also a sleazy fun film, and there's nothing wrong with that!



It's been at least two years since I last saw it ( I can't find my DVD-R ). I hope it gets released on region one "pressed" disc. But, I don't think that will happen anytime soon.

ALL AMERICAN GIRL was written and directed by Mark Haggard.



It stars Peggy Church, and others.

I think Ms. Church handed-in a good performance. I also thought she was cute and sexy.



So what happened to her?

Was Peggy Church her real name?

I know it was on VHS, but I can't remember if it was a bootleg tape.

As I write this, the movie is no longer in print - at least not in the United States ( don't know about other places ).

It used to be available via SOMETHING WEIRD ( on DVD-R ). Just for the record, I no longer purchase or support SOMETHING WEIRD products... and that's all I'm going to say about that subject.....

ROBOTS GONE WILD: GOG



This is the story of two fun-loving robots and a computer that just wanna have fun. Almost forgot to mention, these mechanical misfits also like to kill...



Love these robots. GOG is not one of my favorite robot flicks. However, I still think it's worth watching.



Written by Ivan Tors ( 1916 – 1983 ), Tom Taggart, and Richard G. Taylor.

Directed by Herbert L. Strock ( 1918 - 2005 ).

The human stars are, Richard Egan ( 1921 – 1987 ), Constance Dowling ( 1920 - 1969 ), and others.



I don't think GOG ever had a legit VHS release ( at least not here in the U.S.A. ).

As far as I know, GOG has never been released on a "pressed" region one disc.

An official DVD-R has been released by MGM. I do NOT own one, so I can't give you any details.

FIEND WITHOUT A FACE



FIEND WITHOUT A FACE scared the crap out of me when I was very young. And yet, I would watch this flick every time it aired!

The creatures are fifty percent brain, fifty percent slug, and one hundred percent disgusting!



The movie was written by, Amelia Reynolds Long ( 1904 – 1978 ), and Herbert J. Leder ( 1922 – 1983 ).

It was directed by Arthur Crabtree ( 1900 – 1975 ).

Two of the stars are, Marshall Thompson ( 1925 – 1992 ), and the cute Kim Parker.



I love the stop-motion used in this film, and I also love the brain killing scenes. It sounds like farts, when they spill their guts.



The only cheesecake we get, is from the lead actress Kim Parker, who comes out of the shower with a towel on... hey, it's better than nothing! I have not been able to find out much about her.



I'm almost positive this movie was released several times on legit VHS. Unfortunately, I can not remember the names of the companies responsible.

The only region one DVD that I know of, is the overpriced disc put out by CRITERION.

FYI: I watched it online - via YOUTUBE.

ROBOTS GONE WILD: TARGET EARTH



TARGET EARTH is a somewhat rare movie, and I'm fond of it.

Some of my favorite cinematic robots appear in this flick.

The following people appear in this film, Richard Denning, Kathleen Crowley, Virginia Grey, Richard Reeves and others.

Paul W. Fairman, Wyott Ordung, James H. Nicholson, and William Raynor all get writing credit.

It was directed by Sherman A. Rose ( 1915 - 1986 ).



I don't think there are any model kits of these robots ( I've searched without success ).

As for other memorabilia, approximately ten years ago I found a low priced poster. I did NOT buy it. Why?... Because it was filthy and rotten. It also had a horrible odor!



I've wanted to add TARGET EARTH to my movie library for a very long time.

I know it was sold on VHS, because I owned it on tape. However, I do NOT remember who released it.

A region zero DVD was put out by VCI ENTERTAINMENT. I think it's OUT-OF-PRINT, and I am NOT going to pay a lot of money for a fucking DVD. Nor, will I shell-out for a grey-market DVD-R. The only cheap used copy I found, had a CRACK - starting at the center hole... You know as well as I do, that crack is only going to get bigger ( like a small crack on your car's windshield ).



I don't think any other company has released TARGET EARTH on region one, or region zero, NTSC DVD.

Anyway, I found it online and have watched it three or four times. It was a bit blurry, but at least I got to watch it again. It was also free, which is the ONLY price I'm willing to pay to watch a movie online!
