RIP William Goldman

Ohh no, not him as well. Love this man. He wrote so many scripts and I advise you to go on to youtube and watch his interviews, such a knowledgeable man about the movie industry.

Thanks William Goldman for my all time favourite movie, The princess bride.

Goldman won two Academy Awards for writing All the President’s Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, both classics in their genres and among the most critically acclaimed films of all time. He also had a hand in The Stepford Wives, Misery, Chaplin and many, many more.

Asia Argento 

“Directing is the most rewarding because it holds everything – music, photography, acting, fashion. You get to dream one dream with the people you work with.” – Asia Argento

Daughter of the amazing director Dario Argento,  I first saw her in the movie The phantom of the Opera,  great flick. Awesome woman both actor wise and directing.. 

And PS, did I mention she doesn’t give a fuck 😆

Susan Denberg 

Susan Denberg (born Dietlinde Zechner on 2 August in Bad Polzin, Germany) is a German-Austrian model and actress. 

She made an Playboy appearence in August 1966 and was outstanding in hammer horror movie “Frankenstein Created Woman” not to metion an episode in Star Trek.


My main reason to love Mondays is Written in blood alternative poster blog.

My favourite today is:

More of Crushing on sexy Sixties British actress Margaret Lee

Was wondering what to post until I saw Irv O. Neil’s post  Crushing on sexy Sixties British actress Margaret Lee… .. See excerpt below:

I have the late-middle-age equivalent of a schoolboy crush on pretty and perky British actress Margaret Lee. Sometimes she’s blonde, or sometimes she’s a redhead, as you see in the pic below. She starred in many a 1960s Eurospy and sword & sandal movie. I collect and watch her old films when I can find them, such as SAMSON AND THE SEA BEASTS which I found at Sinister Cinema here. I initially found out about her in a book called Film Fatales: Women in Espionage Films and Television 1962-1973, by Tim Lisanti and Louis Paul, available on Amazon here.

Here are a couple of pix from the Samson movie which I snapped of Margaret from my tv screen. She was just tossed to the floor by a villain, but you can see the feisty gleam of defiance in her eyes.

I don’t know if that was her real voice or some other actress’s dubbing, but in some films she sounds a little like Audrey Hepburn. Which is extra-sexy coming out of Margaret’s voluptuous body.

So without further ado, enjoy her:

Louise Brooks 

For more of this stunning movie starlet, click here..

Mary Louise Brooks (November 14, 1906 – August 8, 1985), generally known by her stage name Louise Brooks, was an American dancer, model, showgirl and silent film actress, noted for popularizing the bobbed haircut. Brooks is best known for her three feature roles including two G. W. Pabst films: in Pandora’s Box (1929), Diary of a Lost Girl(1929), and Prix de Beauté(Miss Europe) (1930). She starred in 17 silent films and, late in life, authored a memoir, Lulu in Hollywood.


I love Mondays because that means alternative poster over at Written in blood. My favourite is the Hellraiser poster, am such a fan of this movie.. 

Blindspot 2017 – it’s Hammer time

I see quite a lot of the movie bloggers are having this blindspot thing going about movies they should have seen but never had time so I started thinking about movies where I had a blindspot and just missed out on. It’s quite a lot… but.. *flashbulb*

I realised I had loads of Hammer horror I’ve missed out on so my Blindspot 2017 these are my  9 picks, skipped 3 months that I will review and I’m so looking forward to seeing them. Oki I will be cheating with Vampire lovers but it was ages ago and needs to be rewatched.

Ingrid Pitt, here I come (hey pervos, not in that way).

Christiane Schmidtmer posing

I was not aware of this blond bombshell but she is truly gorgeous.


CHRISTIANE SCHMIDTMER was born at Heiligabend 1939 – as Christel Schmidtmer – in Mannheim. Her father Jakob Schmidtmer disappeared in the Second World War in Russia. From the war-tormented Mannheim moved her mother Gertrude her renewed marriage the family settled down in Heidelberg. In 1959 she began a two-year apprentice training in Munich. Amongst others, she starred in Marc Camoletti’s play “Boeing Boeing”. She became internationally known for the first time with the refugee drama “Delays in Marienborn”. The film also appeared in the US in the US and attracted both Hollywood and Max Factor Cosmetics to the young German actress. At the New York World’s Fair in 1964 she was presented as an exclusive cover model of the cosmetics company. She played in the Oscar-winning film “The Fool’s Ship” on the side of big world stars and returned to the role of the sexy Lufthansa stewardess in the film version of “Boeing Boeing” with Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Hollywood critics described it as the “most exciting German import since Marlene Dietrich” and it advanced to the stereotypical, German “Fräuleinwunder” in the USA. In 1966 she came to playmate honors in the US edition of the Playboy – the pictures were very erotic, but not as free as those of other models. Her Hollywood career had already passed her zenith, but she remained in the film business until the early 1980s, increasingly in smaller roles of big Hollywood productions, as a guest star in various US series, and also as a cult movie queen in some B-movie productions. After publishing her autobiography in 1981, Christiane Schmidtmer retired almost completely into private life. She lived alternately in Los Angeles and Heidelberg. She died there on March 13, 2003, at the age of only 63 years.

Summer Spiro


Haven’t seen the show but might do now.

The delectable Summer Spiro sizzles as the femme fatale Jessica in “If Looks To Kill” as her dark past threatens policewoman Faith (Stefanie Estes) who is troubled by Summer’s liaison with her ex boyfriend.

– Shades of Marilyn Monroe and L.A. Confidential’s Kim Basinger is evident in Summer’s portrayal of the icy blonde with a lust for killing and who herself evokes an entrancing appetence in those around her.

The mist

I love horror movies but might have made a mistake yesterday. I watched The Mist and woke up this morning to.. yeah guess what.. mist… oki normal morning sometimes but the entire day? Oh fuck that, I’m not stepping out. So happy I got a day off.. 😆

My view at 2 o’clock

And btw if you haven’t seen the movie, watch it or read the book. Both great in their own way.

Photographer explores the public and private personas of your favorite actors

This is actually so cool shots of the people we see onscreen and how they view themselves offscreen.

Bored by the set-up of traditional film festival photo booths, Andrew H. Walker, a staff photographer at Shutterstock, took an unusual approach to celebrity portraiture for this year’s Toronto Film Festival.

Back in September, Walker asked entertainers in attendance to pose for a series that explores the internal and external voices of celebrities.

“I was really curious with actors because they have, not only this personal inside voice, but they have a public persona that they put out there, and they also have their private self,” Walker tells Mashable. “There’s this whole other layer of themselves as people. I found that really, really intriguing.”

The series features 51 performers — including several Golden Globe nominees — sharing two sides of themselves for the camera. 

“Having done this before, I know that celebrities are very guarded about their image, and so I was really nervous about how to start this and what the response was going to be,” Walker says. “I have to say, 95 percent were so willing and interested in doing something.”
