Running Out of Luck (1987)
Rae Dawn Chong is hot & the story was amusing...
It's been so long ago, I only remember a few things about this movie. Casino, banana plantation, Rae Dawn Chong wearing a HUGE brimmed hat & seducing a prison/jail guard with her luscious breasts, only to have him pass out after suckling her drug-laced nipples.
I thought about this movie not too long ago, wondering if anyone else had seen it & had similar impressions. A little disappointed when I decided to search on this site & there's nary a comment. Pity! I was sick one afternoon, "Running Out of Luck" was on, and, perhaps, the title suggested how I was feeling.
Surprised by Mick Jagger's role in the film, I was actually quite impressed that he could act! Heck, I'd watch it again if only to check my memory banks about that fabulous overhead shot of Rae Dawn sashaying down the prison corridor!
The Singing Nun (1966)
Pure Hollywood Fiction
Everyone loves a good ending where all live happily ever after. Such is the case with this movie. I'm sure that Hollywood wanted to capitalize on the hit song in 1963. This movie came out in 1966 and is fine as long as you don't do any research or know anything about the real Belgian Singing Nun, Soeur Sourire, or her birth name of Jeannine Deckers/Jeanne-Paul Deckers. Debbie Reynolds plays a beautiful nun, and of course, Hollywood has to throw in a romantic love interest, Chad Everett. There is attraction between the two in the movie and hint of a school age crush. I don't believe that happened as Jeannine was a lesbian. The movie ending has the Nun leaving to become a missionary in Africa, I believe. When the REAL Nun wanted to leave the convent & live with her long-time partner,Phillips Records dropped her recording contract. Evidently, she fell on difficult financial times. Jeannine & her partner of 25 years committed suicide in 1985. Her music is still heard around the world and her song 'Dominique' is still fondly remembered and sung. 2005 is the 20th anniversary of her death.
