Classy and yet camp - and they don't make movies like that anymore - oh, but the "try"!

This is just the sort of sex, love, mystery, adventure I love. Gotta get hold of this film. Foot fetishist Elmer Batters would have died a little death here. Thank you for the perfect post.


That woman know hows to age beautifully, help or no help. Noone like her and that movie is great.

I just love your mind. I learn so much from you. I've become a Nick Cave fan because of you. Ms. Loren is a goddess.
