Dwain Esper


Recommended Posts

For all fans of the exploitation king, TCM will be showing one of his masterpieces tonight.


Sadly they are not showing the short he did called "How to Take a Bath" which I've sought out for years. Though it sounds more like it should star Robert Benchley, I have a funny feeling that it might star instead an ecdysiast practitioner.


Here is the lineup with the Esper film called "Marihuna" that all film fans need to have seen at least once in their lifetime:
