Bella Cortez as a lusciously evil ancient queen!

In my considered opinion, what we need in modern cinema are more evil temptresses as in the epics of long ago…ladies like Bella Cortez as “Queen Akiba” in 1963’s Taur the Mighty

The Cuban-born actress plays a very bad girl in this movie!

 

…sexy tyrants who can tempt heroes like Taur (Joe Robinson), which Bella did in this mix of sci-fi and sword-and-sandals…

The queen takes time out from villainy to snare, she hopes, the beefcake she craves!

 

…and inadvertently give sidekicks like Taur’s pal Ubaratutu (Harry Baird) some peeks at their sexy legs and feet!

Little do Taur and the queen know that sidekick Ubaratutu is hiding under the bed! Any room down there for me? 😉

 

I love these ancient history flicks from the 1960s. I guess my fondness for them is analogous to the fondness the generations of the 70s and 80s have toward the original Star Wars movies, films which I enjoyed as an adult but never felt particularly entranced by as I did by these gladiator movies in my adolescence, flicks brimming with gorgeous femmes fatale (and “nice girls” too, one of which Bella Cortez played in a similar sci-fi sword-and-sandals film called The Giant of Metropolis).

Back in the 90s when I was writing a lot of feature length porn films, I always wanted to write an X-rated movie taking place in ancient Rome or Greece, but alas, it never came to pass! Needless to say, I find these 60s films very erotic today.

I made these screencaps from the Sinister Cinema DVD of Taur the Mighty, available here!

“You will watch more sword-and-sandal movies…slave!

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! 😉

Celebrity beauty 1914 and 2014

Ensconced in my apartment not far from the Times Square madness of New Year’s Eve, ready to eat a salami-on-rye, drink my Milwaukee’s Best, and watch my Sinister Cinema DVD of The Invisible Man vs. The Human Fly, I offer this brief glimpse of how things have changed…

With the advent of 2014, we’ll be hearing a lot about 1914, when the First World War started, bringing with it the beginnings of the society we know today. With that in mind, let’s look at a picture of a female celebrity who was at the top of her game in 1914, the British actress Gladys Cooper…regarded as eminently “drool-worthy” in her day–and I fully understand why.

As the poet Wallace Stevens wrote, “Beauty is momentary in the mind, the fitful tracing of a portal; but in the flesh, it is immortal.” I agree.

One of the great beauties of her era.

And now let us consider a pic of a female celebrity of 2014, Coco

As the creator & former editor (1988-2005) of CHEEKS magazine, I approve.

Hmm, has it only been a century since 1914? Seems to me Coco’s butt represents 50,000 years of evolution!

Happy 2014, my fellow fanciers of the Eternal Feminine in all its myriad forms!
