Bad Girls of Film Noir: Volume 1--"In the 40's and 50's the juiciest roles for actresses in Hollywood were often in B-pictures that explored the dark side of life: starring roles as cool, calculating gals who could stick a knife in a man's back and make him like it.

Watch out for these gals, they're dangerous--which makes them oh, so fun to watch." Those four films are Night Editor, One Girl's Confession, Women's Prison and Over-Exposed.

Under his greedy reign, the Congo suffered unimaginable horrors. The epic is filled with fascinating adventurers, European, American and Congolese: a story brought to life with a treasure trove of archival materials - letters, secret reports and photographs. Filmed in the Congo, Belgium and the UK, in the USA and Canada, and researched over four years, it is a production of international significance and vital relevance to today.

Rex Steele Nazi Smasher—The animated adventures of Rex Steele, who does just as his titles says. Satan's Wife—"Four beautiful young women surrender to the fiendishly charm of Lucifer himself. But their nights of unholy pleasure have a price: they can't have sex with other men, for the Lord of Darkness is a very jealous lover indeed. The otherworldly fruits of these bestial couplings go by the names of Almarisa and Daria. While the former starts to loathe herself as soon as she realizes who her father really is, the latter perversely learns how to enjoy her devilish skills to wreak havoc in the human world. To put an end to her hellish endeavours, a very unlikely exorcist is enlisted." Sex Advice—"How do Catholics enjoy sex when the always glowing threat of sin is bestowed upon them by God's rightful sword? Well, for starters you could seek out the advice of your local priest and try to work out issues that are obviously at odds like pleasure and guilt. A forgotten but very accurate portrait of mid-seventies Italy, the film captures some of the most sensitive problems that had to be faced by Catholic women like prenuptial intercourse, open weddings and homosexuality." Shoot First and Pray You Live—"Nowhere in the vast spread of the desert has there ever been a greater legend told than the bloody feud between Red Pierre and the phantom gunfighter, Bob McGurk. Red Pierre has traveled through the mountains from a Mexican monastery to avenge his dying father, who was fatally wounded by the infamous outlaw Bob McGurk. But before Pierre can have a showdown with this invincible gunman, a gang of bandits captures him. Instead of fighting them, he decides to join forces and rides on with the wild marauders. The final face-off with McGurk has been a long time coming, and Red Pierre will stop at nothing to see that justice is served." I just like the idea of a western featuring Jim Gaffigan. Trapeze (1956)—"Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis and Gina Lollobrigida star as a triangle of lovers in this powerful drama set against the magnificent background of a European circus. Filmed on location in Paris, Trapeze has been acclaimed as one of the most spectacular and authentic circus movies ever made."
