4 Comments

Yvette Vickers, Playboy Playmate des Monats Juli 1959 (ihre Doppelseite wurde fotografiert von niemand anderes als Russ Meyer) und Cineasten vor allem als die Dame bekannt, die in „Attack of the 50ft Woman“ eine Kleinstadt plattmachte, wurde vergangene Woche von einer Nachbarin tot in ihrem Haus aufgefunden. Die Leiche war bereits mumifiziert, es wird angenommen, dass sie bereits seit vor einem Jahr starb. Traurige Geschichte. Bye bye, Yvette.

Yvette Vickers, an early Playboy playmate whose credits as a B-movie actress included such cult films as “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” and “Attack of the Giant Leeches,” was found dead last week at her Benedict Canyon home. Her body appears to have gone undiscovered for months, police said.

Vickers, 82, had not been seen for a long time. A neighbor discovered her body in an upstairs room of her Westwanda Drive home on April 27. Its mummified state suggests she could have been dead for close to a year, police said.

The official cause of death will by determined by the Los Angeles county coroner’s office, but police said they saw no sign of foul play.

    “Die Leiche war bereits mumifiziert, es wird angenommen, dass sie bereits seit vor einem Jahr starb” sollte vielleicht noch kurz überarbeitet werden.

    Ansonsten: R.I.P. 50 ft. Woman. Traurige Sache, vor allem wenn auf diese Weise geschieht.

    Allein und von niemanden vermisst abtreten. Trauriger gehts nimmer.

    Wem kann man denn da sein Mitleid ausdrücken? Verwandte oder Bekannte haben wohl kein Interesse an ihr gehabt.

    Aber mal off topic: “50 Feet” sind so ca. 15 Meter also drei US-Car-Fahrzeuglängen.
    Wie groß ist die Frau auf dem Plakat? 10-12 Fahrzeuglängen?

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
