Salon Kitty (1976)
Adam is most famous for creating the iconic and sprawling lairs of the supervillains who populated the Sean Connery and Roger Moore-era James Bond films. His designs included the Crab Key complex in "Dr. No," the Fort Knox interiors on "Goldfinger," the volcano lair of "You Only Live Twice," Stromberg's supertanker and Atlantis sets in "The Spy Who Loved Me," and Drax's space station in "Moonraker". He also did the production design on "Thunderball" and "Diamonds Are Forever".
Adams' work extended well beyond the Bond franchise though, such as two films in the anti-Bond Harry Palmer film series with Michael Caine - "The Ipcress File" and "Funeral in Berlin". He was a favorite of Stanley Kubrick following his design of the famous war room for "Dr. Strangelove". He was offered "2001" but turned it down,
A collection of trailers featuring some of the best in erotic cinema from the golden age of erotica.
You’ve got to hand it to those wonderful people at Nucleus Films, for not only do they want to entertain you they wish to educate you as well. Inspired by the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey and adopting the format of their Grindhouse Trailer Classics DVD’s, Nucleus have sought high and low to bring together fifty trailers of popular classics and forgotten gems from the 1960s through to the early 1990s that, quite frankly, puts the much hyped and inevitably disappointing Fifty Shades of Grey in the shade when it comes to titillation.
Watching a collection of trailers is a bit like watching an anthology film, as if there is something you don’t particularly care for then something else will be along shortly, and
I see the backed-up hunger for the forthcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey, with all its palely transgressive, kiss-the-lash sexual provocations, and I ask myself, did the clock just stop? Have we moved one inch into the sexual future since 1975? Is this still all it takes – a virginal naif willing to submit, a power magnate keen to dominate more than just his supine boardroom and stunted workforce, and a fancy set of bedroom restraints – to whip America up into a tumescent frenzy of anticipation?
I say 1975 advisedly because that seems like the year when Hollywood topped out on what it was prepared to show sexually in the wake of the 1968 MPAA ratings reforms. Even now, even with the Nc-17 rating, Hollywood is hard-pressed to match what was sexually acceptable in mid-70s international cinema.

These films dealt with the concentration camps as a hotbed of sexual shenanigans and kinkiness. The vast majority of people who watch the Nasty Nazi films find them either execrable or hilarious – depending on what movie they are watching. Yes it is wrong to laugh at war crimes but some of these films are just so dumb, it is impossible to be offended by them.
On the other hand, there are films on the list which are revolting in their sleaze factor and willingness to exploit the Holocaust for their own perverted agendas. However, these films exist and we have to put up with them. Hence, I decided to give Nasty Nazi films a list of their own.

Was it the be-all-end-all of action films? No. But it was a retro-blast that in this past summer was desperately needed. What took so long to get our action heroes together in one movie, I don’t know,
Kitty Kellerman (played by Ingrid Thulin) runs Salon Kitty -- a brothel where the German elite come to relax. An amorphously perverse Nazi general named Wallenberg (Helmet Burger) forces Kitty to move to a new building, which is wired for spying, and swaps out her trusted stable with a bunch of SS spies. In the middle of all of this scheming is a committed Nazi concubine named Margherita (Teresa Ann Savoy).
Salon Kitty is based on a non-fiction book by Peter Norden.

Paths Of Glory (Criterion) Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 antiwar classic put him on the map as a major filmmaker. Kirk Douglas stars in a true story about a French officer in Ww I who locks horns with the military’s top brass after his men are court-martialed for failing to carry out an obvious suicide mission. A perfect film, across the board, with fine support from George Macready as one of the most despicable martinet’s ever captured on film, Ralph Meeker, and Adolphe Menjou, all oily charm as a conniving General. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Audio commentary by critic Gary Giddins; Excerpt from 1966 audio interview with Kubrick; 1979 interview with Douglas; New interviews with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and producer James B. Harris; French television documentary on real-life case which inspired the film; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby 1.0 mono.
