Nancy Sinatra Is In Sugar Town - I Wish I Was There Too!

Here are a few pictures of Nancy Sinatra for you to enjoy. I'm also posting a video of Nancy singing her hit song Sugar Town. I love this song and video. I thought this song was a cool tune for here at Sugar & Spice. I hope you like it.

I want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans. I hope you will have a wonderful holiday however you celebrate it. I will be taking a break from this blog until next Monday (which is December 1st). I want to spend my holiday break with my family and friends. I hope you will have a great time. I'll see you all back here on Monday. Cheers!

P.S. I know those pictures were sent to me in the past by some friends online. I'm not sure which friends now though, so I can't offer credit. I'm sorry about that.

Which Playboy Bunny Does Hef Want? All Of Them!!!

So which one of these hot babes does Hugh Hefner want to spend the night with? I think he'll take of all them. He is one randy fella after all. ;-)


I came across this great video that I thought would be cool to post here. I hope you enjoy it. It's a video featuring a lot of classic Playboy Bunnies. Wow! These are some really gorgeous girls. Man, I would loved to have lived in this era. I would definitely have been hanging out at the Playboy Club all the time. I do wonder how many of these hot babes Hef got to know privately. He's certainly one lucky devil!

Joi Lansing - The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else

Here are two video clips featuring Joi Lansing.

The first one is a tribute video dedicated to Joi.

The second one is another Scopitone video. It's Joi performing the song The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else. That's the song used in the tribute video above.

I don't know about you fellas, but Joi could certainly have my love and whatever else she wanted. I thought it would be neat to post both of those videos at the same time. It gives you a chance to see a great tribute to Joi, while also seeing her video for this song. I love this song. She does a wonderful job with it. Joi's quite the sexpot. She's incredibly gorgeous while she's also got a sultry voice that I love. Man, I've got a big crush on this babe. Hope you enjoyed both those videos. Cheers!

Ursula Andress Is Sweet As Honey

With the release of the latest Bond adventure Quantum of Solace, I thought it was a great time to post a couple of pictures of the ultimate Bond girl. That is, of course, none other than Ursula Andress. Her role as Honey Ryder in 1962's Dr. No has became the standard for all Bond girls. She is the iconic Bond girl. Her first scene in the film has become one of the most memorable moments in cinematic history. It's been often imitated, but it's never been surpassed. Ursula oozed sexiness beyond mere words. It was like the goddess Venus herself coming to shore. Ursula went on to play in many other films of the 1960's that I've enjoyed, such as 4 For Texas, She, What's New, Pussycat? & Casino Royale. She's one of my favorite sex kittens of that era. I hope you enjoy these pictures.



P.S. My friend Jeremy has got a James Bond in the 1960's poll over at his Moon In The Gutter blog. I hope you'll check it out. You can vote there for your favorite James Bond films of the 1960's. I thought this was a really awesome poll, plus Jeremy's got one of my favorite blogs out there in the blogosphere.

The Alphabet Meme


I have been tagged by Jeremy at
Moon In The Gutter in the following Meme.
Here are the rules:

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter "A" and the word "The" do not count as the beginning of a film's title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don't know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under "R," not "S" as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with "S." Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under "R," not "I" as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the LOTR series belong under "L" and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under "C," as that's what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number's word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under "T."

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type "alphabet meme" into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

6. If you're selected, you have to then select 5 more people.

I tried to pick mostly films from the 1960's and 1970's.

A. At the Earth's Core (Kevin Connor)
B. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (Russ Meyer)
C. Contraband (Lucio Fulci)
D. Danger: Diabolik (Mario Bava)
E. Emmanuelle (Just Jaeckin)
F. Foxy Brown (Jack Hill)
G. Gator Bait (Beverly & Ferd Sebastian)
H. Hell Up in Harlem (Larry Cohen)
I. Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS (Don Edmonds)
J. Jungle Holocaust (Ruggero Deodata)
K. Kansas City Bomber (Jerrold Freedman)
L. Lady Frankenstein (Mel Welles & Aureliano Luppi)
M. Murderers' Row (Henry Levin)
N. Nightmare City (Umberto Lenzi)
O. On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Peter R. Hunt)
P. The Pom Pom Girls (Joseph Ruben)
Q. Quest for Fire (Jean-Jacques Annaud)
R. Rolls-Royce Baby (Erwin C. Dietrich)

Sean Connery & Gina Lollobrigida Relax On Set

Chillin' on the set with Sean Connery and Gina Lollobrigida. I wonder what Sean's got on his mind. :-)


This is from the set of Woman of Straw from 1964. Sean Connery plays the scheming nephew of an ailing tycoon. Gina Lollobrigida plays a sexy nurse who helps him out in his plot to take control of his uncle's fortune.

Jody Miller - The Race Is On

Here's another Scopitone video. This one is Jody Miller singing The Race Is On. I hope you enjoy it.

I don't know about you, but I'd love to find out where this race is at. I never knew that there were races where hot girls danced around in skimpy outfits. I love it!

Fly The Friendly & Sexy Skies!

This was sent to me courtesy of my friend Michael.


Talk about flying the friendly skies. It's a sexy one too with these gorgeous stewardesses. I really fantasize about those good 'ole days. If it was still like this, I would book a flight right now. I'd love to be up in the air with these hot chicks looking after my every need. It would definitely make flying a lot easier having all this eye candy around to take care of me. Maybe one of those babes would wanna spend the weekend away with me. A fella can dream, can't he? :-)

Cad: A Handbook For Heels

I highly recommend Cad: A Handbook For Heels to all red-blooded males out there. It represents so well the type of lifestyle that many of us desire to live. This book hearkens back to that cool and swingin' era we all dig so much. It actually is set up like a 50's magazine for men. It features articles on everything from booze to cigars to hot chicks. There are quite a few pictures of sexy pin-up girls. This is definitely a book that any cool cat who likes to get a little randy will enjoy.

My Favorite Playboy Covers: Patti McGuire

Patti McGuire is one of my favorite hot babes ever to appear in Playboy. She is gorgeous and has an incredible body. I love these two magazine covers. I actually have both of them in my collection. I hope you like them.



P.S. I was invited to be a contributor at the blog Celluloid Slammer. I was very thrilled and honored to be asked. I've just put my up first post on this blog. It's one of my favorite scenes from the Matt Helm spy flick The Silencers (click on the movie title to be carried to my post). It's when Dean Martin first meets Stella Stevens. That's an introduction he'll never forgot. I plan to probably post a video clip once or twice a week there. I hope you'll come back here and there to see what else I might have posted on this blog. I definitely hope you'll check out my first post there. Please feel free to leave me some comments on my first blog post. Thanks. I appreciate it. Cheers!

Donna Theodore Sings About Her Femininity

Here's another one of those wonderful Scopitone clips. This is Donna Theodore singing Femininity. She's lamenting how randy fellas don't take her seriously. They just want her for her hot bod.

Note: This video cuts off after starting up and then starts again. I just wanted you to know when you watched it.

I hope you enjoyed that clip. I sure did. These Scopitone videos really knew how to show off some hot babes. If I was one of these dudes, I would be trying to make some time with her as well. I certainly love that femininity. ;-)

It's Election Day! Vote Jayne Mansfield For President!

Today is November 4th. It's Election Day here in the United States. If you haven't voted, get out there and vote! Forget about Obama and McCain. Don't waste your time on the Libertarian or Green Parties. Cast your vote today for Jayne Mansfield. She's the one who can bring real change to Washington. Send Jayne to the White House. This country, and world for that matter, will never been the same again. Plus she definitely would be a much sexier Commander-in-Chief. :-)

Raquel Welch Is Fathom-tastic!


The success of the Bond films, starting with 1962's Dr. No, caused a craze for spy movies. Studios across the globe wanted to cash in with their own imitators. Many of these films were not always serious fare, but played up for laughs. While many of these movies featured male spies, including Dean Martin as Matt Helm and James Coburn as Derek Flint, there were spy capers starring female leads. Actresses got a chance to play more than just another notch in the bedpost of a male secret agent. Two such examples are Raquel Welchc Fathom Harvill and Monica Vitti as Modesty Blaise (which I'm sure to cover at a later date).


Fathom was released in 1967. It was directed by Leslie H. Martinson (he had directed the Batman feature film the previous year. The script was by Lorenzo Semple Jr. (he wrote the screenplay for the Batman film, plus he was also a writer and script consultant on the Batman series). Raquel Welch was cast as dental hygienist and skydiver Fathom Harvill. Raquel's credits at this point included Fantastic Voyage and One Million Years B.C., both which were released in 1966.


Fathom is participating in a skydiving tour throughout Spain. The opening sequence of the film features a sexy Raquel packing up her parachute. The camera lovingly moves over her body. This should give you a good idea of what this film is going to be focused on. When she's finishing jumping out of a plane, she takes a ride from a young British chap. He ends up driving her to meet a Colonel Campbell (Ronald Fraser) at an old trailer out at the beach. She discovers that her driver is Lieutenant Timothy Webb (Richard Briers) of the Royal Air Force. They inform her that they work for a covert spy agency called H.A.D.E.S. (Headquarters Allied Defenses Espionage and Security). They want to recruit her to perform one simple task for them. They are trying to locate the Fire Dragon, which is a fail safe device that can detonate a hydrogen bomb by electronic signal. It seems that a hydrogen bomb was lost in the Mediterranean. They were able to find the bomb, but not the triggering device. Campbell asks her to parachute down into the villa of Peter Merriweather (Anthony Franciosa) and Jo-May Soon, Mongolian KGB (Greta Chi), both are enemy agents working for the Chinese and are after the Fire Dragon. H.A.D.E.S. is having trouble with a listening device at the villa so they can snoop on what the two Red Chinese agents are up to. They just need her to turn the bug on. It sounds easy enough.


She agrees to help them just this one time. What she thinks will turn out to be an easy and quick task turns out to be more than she bargained for. Her landing at the villa goes off without a hitch. When she enters the house, however, she stumbles upon the body of a murdered man. That's when Peter Merriweather and Jo-May Soon walk in to discover Fathom holding the murder weapon. He snaps incriminating photos of Fathom. There's some witty banter here between Fathom and Merriweather. Half the time he's grilling her and half the time he's flirting with her. He blackmails her into helping him dispose of the body.


Merriweather tells Fathom that she's been lied to. He did not defect to the East during the Korean War. The war defector is actually Col. Campbell, who is not actually the head of H.A.D.E.S. The Fire Dragon is actually a priceless treasure from the Ming Dynasty. Col. Campbell is a thief. Merriweather is the detective hired to get back the statue. Fathom isn't sure who to believe. There are so many twists and turns that it's not always easy to figure out who to trust and what people's real motives are concerning the Fire Dragon. The only person you know from the outset is a villain is the Russian Sergi Serapkin (played fabulously by Clive Revill, who was also great in Modesty Blaise), who has the disability of never being warm enough. When Fathom first encounters Serapkin, she believes that he might have the Fire Dragon or know where to get it from. He actually thinks that she's a prostitute come to service him. There's quite an interesting scene on his yacht.


I don't want to go into too much more detail about the plot of the film. Suffice it to say, Fathom is pulled in all different directions. She's never quite sure who to trust or what their true intentions are. There are several action packed scenes in which Fathom finds herself in trouble, including a boat chase, having to elude a spear gun attack underwater, being run around a stadium by a bull, danger up in a plane, etc. The movie is light on gadgets, except for some exploding earrings. The movie's main focus much on the time is on the incredibly sexy body of Raquel Welch. The camera tends to zoom in often on her body. The highlight of the movie is Fathom walking around the streets of a Spanish town in a lime green bikini. All eyes are on her as she struts through town. You can't hardly blame them. She is a knockout.


Raquel Welch could never be accused of being a great actress. She does the best she can here with her talents. Honestly you know she's playing Fathom because of her gorgeous looks and body. She wasn't exactly hired for her acting abilities. She avails herself quite nicely here. The other two best actors in this film have got to be Tony Franciosa (who for some reason is top billed in this movie) and Clive Revill. They both play their respective roles perfectly. I never quite understood why Franciosa never became a bigger star. There is a lot of chemistry in this film between him and Raquel. They make a good looking couple. Their scenes together always brought a smile to my face. There's a running gag throughout this film about Fathom's name. She's got a different line every time for why she was given such a moniker.


Fathom has a really jazzy cocktail lounge soundtrack. I had it in my head for days after. It also takes advantage of the beautiful scenery in Spain. It's a stunning locale to have set this film in. The cinematography really captures the beauty and atmosphere quite nicely. The movie has all this, as well as sex appeal, laughs, action, etc. It doesn't try to be something it's not. It's not pretending to be high art. It knows that it's a kitschy spy romp. Fathom embraces and relishes in that. It's not great cinema, but it is pure escapist fun. Give Raquel Welch in her role as Fathom Harvill a shot. I'm sure you won't be sorry.


Here's that opening sequence I mentioned earlier. Wow!
