More on Tickle Me~ via the always awsome WiKi: onnie Beale (Elvis), an out-of-work rodeo star with a heart of gold, is trying to make ends meet until the season starts up again. He comes to the town of Zuni Wells (a fictional town somewhere in the American West) because a friend says Lonnie can get a job on a ranch, but his friend is nowhere to be found.
Having no other option, Lonnie begins singing in a local club, but he gets fired after a fight with one of the customers. Vera Radford (Adams) sees his performance and offers a job at a ranch she runs called the Circle-Z to take care of the horses. The Circle-Z is not what Lonnie expected, though; it is a guest ranch where actresses and models go to lose weight and to get in shape, a fitness salon, referred to as "Yogurt Gulch."

The film opens with a wordless prologue obscured by darkness. The eponymous killer, posing as a hitchhiker, goes on a murderous spree. His body count climbs but is hidden offscreen, suggested by a woman’s purse falling from a car or an ominous shadow cutting across car door. Neither the killer (renamed Emmett Myers and played with psychotic quiet by William Talman) nor the extent of his crimes are revealed until he’s picked up on a pitch-black highway by two unwary fisherman, Gilbert Bowen (Frank Lovejoy) and Roy Collins (noir veteran Edmond O’Brien). From this simple premise - three men, one gun, and a car on the border to Mexico - Lupino spins a story of survival and sadism.

"Kill, then love! When you have known that, you have known ecstasy!"
The personal philosophy of Russian Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks) as he prepares to hunt down human prey Bob Rainsford (Joel McCrea) on a remote island in the motion picture The Most Dangerous Game (1932).
After a shipwreck, the Count and his assistant rescue a number of survivors and invite them to the comfort of his mansion on Baranka Island. Soon, the survivors dwindle in number and the remaining surviviors discover the Count is a mad and using his guests as reluctant participants in an usual big game hunt. “I have invented a new sensation.”
Giving his human prey a head start, the Count cries, “First the hunt...then the revels” as he follows closely behind with snarling dogs and bow and arrow.
Unfortunately, for the Count, his prey becomes the hunter. As the Count admits defeat (“Yes...yes I insist you have beaten me.”) Rainsford stabs him to death.
"This world's divided into two kinds of people: the hunter and the hunted. Luckily I'm the hunter. Nothing can change that." - Bob Rainsford
In other great movie quotes! In the film Flesh for Frankenstein (1974) Udo Kier as Baron Frankenstein says, “To know death, Otto, you must first fuck life in the gall bladder!”
To this day one of my very favorite soundtracks. I remember buying the album in the University District with my then boyfriend Andrew Wood, of Mother Love Bone. He loved Miles Davis. We then saw that it was a movie that was just coming out and went to see it down the street.
I'm always surprised when I meet someone who's never seen it. With a huge cast starring Gabriel Byrne, Julian Sands, Isabella Roselinni, Martin Sheen, Ellen Barkin, and Jodie Foster, and even a fun cameo with Grace Jones, it was one of the most interestingly cast movies and one of the sexiest I've even seen.
Ellen Barkin was also married to Gabriel Byrne at the time, I believe they had 5 children together. via Wiki~ The screenplay was written by Patricia Louisianna Knop, based on a novel by Patrice Chaplin. The film was shot on location inSpain, released by Lorimar Motion Pictures, and debuted in New York City on November 11, 1987. The film's themes are sex and death. Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis performed on the score for the film, Music from Siesta, which was written and arranged by frequent Davis collaborator Marcus Miller. Film critic Janet Maslin called it an "excitingly bad, artily experimental film".
Speaking of siestas, why don't Americans practice the art of napping like they do in Spain?
As I was making aplaylistfor Xanaland's upcoming party that we have monthly for our local musicians and friends, I realized I had actually come up with a great song list that must be shared. It was super fun to make and tells me a lot about myself, as I have special memories that go with many of the songs. I originally had 130, but narrowed it down to the 100 best. I chose music in the beginning that would be sort of the Halloween cooking music, if you will, and then got more into the traditional Halloween classics like The Munsters theme song, and found some great vintage goodies like the ones used in spooky Betty Boop cartoons; then it goes into the best songs from dark movie soundtracks, like the song by Tito Y Tarantula: After Dark,which is featured in Robert Rodriguez/Tarantino's "From Dusk Till Dawn ."
