Vincent Price and his Laughing Woman…

I am always fascinated to find instances of femdom and femmes fatale in the past…from the obvious examples of stories like those of Jezebel or Judith in the Bible, to the exploits of 19th century Wanda in Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, and onto other lesser known items…

I recently saw the not-very-good 1963 Vincent Price movie Diary of a Madman, based on stories by Guy de Maupassant.  Despite Price giving his usual good performance…

…the film is a kind of graceless affair; but it features lovely Nancy Kovack as the irresistible femme fatale who seduces poor upstanding Vincent (he plays a righteous judge) and I must confess I primarily watched the movie to see her (although I like Price, I’m not a huge fan).

Kovack of course is a fanboy favorite for her role as Medea in Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts. But here she is below in my lovingly snapped screencap from Diary of a Madman (I sit in front of my tv with my cellphone, lol):

Price is also an amateur sculptor in the story, and in one scene, as he models Nancy in clay, he tells her how she reminds him of a piece by the German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine (1797-1856). This of course sent me scurrying to Google. Price remembers the title as “The Laughing Woman” but in the translations I found, the German title is given as “Ein Weib” which is then translated into English either as “A Woman” or, at the site lyricstranslate.com,  “A Broad.”

A Broad

They loved each other with love so deep
She was a tramp and he was a thief
While he was plying his naughty craft
She just lay on the bed and laughed

The days went by in pleasure and joy
At night in the sheets she hugged her boy
When they dragged him off to jail at last
She just stood at the window and laughed

He wrote to her saying: ‘O come to me
I long for you, so badly, you see
I’m weeping: I’m fading fast
She shook her sweet head and laughed

At six in the morning they hung him high
At seven they buried him under the sky
But as eight o’clock went past
She drank red wine and laughed

Heartless, right?

In the original German the rhythm works better at the end, has more of a grim punch, so if you can read Deutsch, go to this page where I found the translation and check it out. Here is also another translation that works well, but likewise the final stanza just doesn’t have the same aural oomph of the German. I’m no expert in German, though I studied it in high school and college, but I do read poetry aloud a lot, and I can tell where a rhythm needs more force.

As it turns out in Diary of a Madman, Price’s laughing woman turns into both his tormentor and victim, the typical trajectory for very naughty ladies in such fictions.

For more of Heine’s femme fatalistic poetry, check out also the translation of “Ich glaub nicht an den Himmel” (“I don’t believe in Heaven”) here. The poem’s narrator believes in nothing but her eyes and…well, read it and see. The translator A.S. Kline also did the one I reproduced above, although he didn’t call it “A Broad.”

Finally, this post is dedicated to Goddess Lycia. A brief discussion I had with her the other day on Twitter about German and French and poetry finally got me off my butt to write and post after thinking about it for several weeks. 😉 Check out her site and journal at LipstickDomme too, as she is a most fascinating femme fatale herself…

 

 


I found the shot of Vincent Price here at the Doc Horror blog.

And if you’d like to read the classic novel of femdom translated from German and illustrated by the amazing British artist Sardax, his edition of Venus in Furs is readily available in a Kindle ebook here.

Margaret Lee, Secret Agent Gal!

As promised, here is more of Margaret Lee, for whom I shall invent a time machine & go back to 1966 to ask for a date.

She plays Agent Cynthia “Comfort” Fulton in SECRET AGENT SUPER DRAGON, starring super-suave Ray “The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond” Danton as Brian Cooper aka Super Dragon, master spy. Don’t ask me to explain the plot, it’s a typical evil villains want to take over the world thing. Margaret gets caught by the baddies’ chief scientists…

They are considerate enough to get her out of her dress so it doesn’t get stained when they torture her…

 

They quiz her on what she knows, and when she refuses to cooperate…

 

…they slap her. Then…

 

…they explain the electro torture they’re going to subject her to. She sees they mean business, but…

 

…she remains feisty even when they strap her down!

 

Fortunately Super Dragon arrives to save the day and Margie gets to put her clothes back on & pull the electro switch to torture the scientist who slapped her…

 

…a moment of payback she clearly enjoys! I love her stern look!!

 

But it’s Margaret Lee at her perky blonde best (here with their espionage agency boss) that I most like. I can’t understand why Superdragon doesn’t end up with her at the end of the film and chooses an outdoor restaurant hostess instead for some hanky panky!! Maybe he’s not so suave after all?

It’s a fun little film, though, that grows more amusing every time I see it. It’s available on DVD from Sinister Cinema here.

I can’t wait to find another Margaret Lee movie to make my worshipful little screencaps from! 😉

Foolish mortal! NOBODY can resist Yolanda’s cleavage!

In a burst of fiction-writing energy that’s been going on since August, right on the heels of Darva Chan, Cruelty Queen of the Piano (see my previous post), I just completed and published yet another new femdom novella:

Her look of haughty indifference above that plunging line of cleavage got my imagination throbbing!

Her look of haughty indifference above that plunging line of cleavage got my imagination throbbing!

 

Yolanda Thumm is on the prowl for a susceptible breast-man and finds one in Orwell Jarvis, an unassuming office administrator who quickly becomes her frenzied cleavage worshipper. Yolanda’s plan of seduction includes wearing her blouses open as deeply as possible, or low-cut dresses that show off her 36D bosom and make it almost impossible for Jarvis to think of anything but her alluring breasty presence. Twisting him around her little finger, she has him do all sorts of things to prove his dedication and adoration of her cleavage…and his utter willingness to be a “boob for her boobies”!

She has him take her out for expensive dinners and then to the ATM machine for cash presents. He can no more resist handing over the money she demands than he can stop himself from delirious bouts of wanking when he’s not with her. He knows that getting into a “findom” (financial domination) situation can be dangerous, but with Yolanda’s relentless teasing talk and cruel manipulations of his lust, he becomes an eager puppet who will do whatever she commands to be her cleavage slave. Wait till you see what she has him do in the middle of a midtown Manhattan steakhouse!

Like my previous story about Darva Chan, RULE BY CLEAVAGE was inspired by a luscious photo, this one by the photographer “xalanx” from the stock agency 123RF.com; you can see his portfolio here. So check out this new femdom novella in seven exciting chapters, over 13,000 words in 41 pages of erotic entertainment! It’s available at Amazon US here as well as Amazon worldwide.

Porn scribe’s diary 12/6/12: My immortal prose sidelined by Asian pulchritude…

I thought I was going to blog tonite…I pulled a few pictures to illustrate a post about writers and how they sometimes end up in a different place than when they started writing; but then I got waylaid by a site that had pictures like this…

"Can I help you, Mr. Neil?"

“Can I help you, Mr. Neil?”

In a world gone mad, the beauty of Asian women puts a smile on my face and necessitates adjustments in other parts of my anatomy as well… 😉

Check out Stylish Photos of Gorgeous Asian Women and see if you don’t agree.
