I'll never forget Barbarella. I was 12 or 13 years old, and visiting my favorite uncle, an optometrist who joined up and was a Major in the Air Force, at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. Barbarella sounded like an intersting SF movie so he took me out to see it on the base (this was before the rating syustem was installed). Jane Fonda was the first naked lady I ever saw onscreen. My Uncle Fran was a bit embarrassed that he took me after it turned out to be so sexual, but pretty much shrugged it away with a chuckle.

And to add to the list:

Dr. Zhivago

Then there's 'One Million Years BC'. Though I honestly have no real desire to watch it again, so I guess it's not legit in this context.

Somebody mentioned Rae Dawn Chong who spent most of 'Quest for Fire' with no clothes on. That should ring bells with someone!

Maahey

Was it 'Rush Hour'?

Wow and others

I'm a sucker for 'rom-coms'. So:

Made in America (lusting after Whoopi Goldberg, would you believe it?)

Clueless (lusting after Jane Austen?)

Addams Family Values (lusting after Joan Cusack. And Christina Ricci is ineffably inscrutable)

Mermaids (Cher, Winona, Christina and Bob Hoskins. What more could you ask for?)

Die Hard (the first was the best)

Under Siege (So what if it's a Die Hard rip-off. You've got, or rather, you have, Steven Seagal, Tommy Lee Jones and Erika Eleniak!)

So these are a few of my favourite films (at least, I'll watch them any time).

I stayed up 'til four in the morning watching The Price Of Beauty. Oh, it was marvellous, it was about a bunny girl who wanted to be the best bunny girl in the world, and as long as she worked hard and Did Her Best she could succeed at anything. There was a morally suspect best friend who dallied with men but was saved in the end by a pretty frock and a good talking to. Bunny girl became bunny mother and went off in a blaze of glory to New York, oh, and she got her man, the humble barman, and escaped the clutches of the feckless playboy. Fabulous stuff. I love it, nearly as good as those made for tv american biopics you get on channel five where there's always a cute child in mortal danger, will s/he survive? Of course they will! God Bless America.

Serious question, this time: my first thought was that this is a model for Playboy, but your description of the movie makes me doubt this is right. Could you elaborate, please?

Other movies I like: The Wizard of Oz; Pollyanna; and The World of Henry Orient.

The Price of Beauty, AKA The Tale of Two Bunnies.

Apparently it *is about Playboy Bunnies.
