I'm counting the hours! I only wish I could watch/record them all! I'll have to pick and choose what to record and I have no idea what film would be better. (some of the titles might sway me! :D)

Hibi, I've seen two before, both crime flix, and both are excellent, in a low-budget psychotronic sort of way, which I dig. GUNS, GIRLS AND GANGSTERS (natch!!), and THE GIRL IN BLACK STOCKINGS--both are awesome really and highly recommended! I've heard really good things about UNTAMED YOUTH and THE BEAT GENERATION as well!

Guns, Girls, and Gangsters is fairly decent, with plenty of Mamie. However, I couldn't see her going for Gerald Mohr. Then again, she is running from hubby Lee Van Cleef, so there is no accounting for taste. But this flick is worth a look.

 

The Girl in Black Stockings is just weird. There is not enough of Mamie to suit me, and some scenes are just plain creepy - like Lex Barker carrying a paralyzed Ron Randell around. Barker sans loincloth is about as good an actor as Barker avec loincloth - either way, he stinks. John Dehner plays an idiot sheriff who has no knowledge of crime scene investigations. Stuart Whitman shows up at the end., almost out of nowhere. And then there is Richard Cutting as a doctor - I wonder what his nickname was growing up?

 

The others I have not seen, but most I've heard of. Of course, Sex Kittens Go To College sounds perfectly awful - therefore, I have to see it.

That was not to be believed either.

"Treatment, Ricky, treatment!"

 

Mohr looks like he was born with a smirk on his face.

Okay. So far the opening credits in "Untamed Youth" show a featured player named "Keith Richards", and then 15 minutes into this baby, an incarcerated Mamie warbles the song "Like a Rolling Stone"(no, not the Zimmerman version)

 

Coincidence? You be the judge.

 

Btw, LOVED the old BSA Super Rocket the kid named "Bob Steele"(no, not the old cowboy star) rides up on at the 20 minute mark.

>when the girls are starting to fight, the one says "get ready for an Italian haircut!"... then proceeds to yank on her hair!

(...well, I don't think Miss Lollobrigida had anything to worry about from THESE girls!)
