Rule 5 Sunday: Sean Young

— compiled by Wombat-socho We’re now in November of 2019, which is when the movie Blade Runner is supposed to take place, and there’s been a lot of discussion online about the resemblances between Los Angeles in the movie and Los Angeles in real life. Our concern, however, is with the ladies of that movie, […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Ingrid Pitt

— compiled by Wombat-socho Halloween draws near, the time when everybody pulls out the horror films that have been gathering dust in the DVD rack all year. Seems appropriate to look back at one of the last great British film studios, Hammer Films, best known for some eye-popping movies about Dracula and other monsters, frequently […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Roll Tide!

— compiled by Wombat-socho Quick and dirty since I have to pack up and drive to Carson City tonight so the State Bureau of Disability Adjudication can’t lose my paperwork again. Give it up for the 2019 Alabama Dance Team. 90 Miles From Tyranny: Hot Pick of The Late Night, The 90 Miles Mystery Box […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Revolution Calling

A star of beach movies in the 1960, Chris became famous to Vietnam Vets as hostess of the Armed […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Summertime Girls

— compiled by Wombat-socho I guess most of the country’s moved on to autumn, what with Labor Day being almost a month in the past, football season underway, and friends in states next to Canada already being vexed with snow, but here in Sin City it’s still warm enough to hit the beaches, and where […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Cecile Haussernot

Rule 5 Sunday: Paulina Porizkova

— compiled by Wombat-socho Well, RIP Ric Ocasek of the Cars, who died this weekend at the age of 75. Turned out a lot of fine music with the Cars, produced a lot more, and most pertinently from our point of view, was married to supermodel Paulina Porizkova for 28 years. Here’s Paulina in a […]
