Wherever Damien saw that "amateur movie", it wasn't in Times Square.

At the time I worked in an office on 7th Ave and 53rd St. and was very familiar with the area. I would have remembered such a title. The only thing that comes close is "Two Nuns and a Pack Mule", which was the name of the one and only album from a Chicago noise rock band called Rapeman, which seems to imply the same thing. It was released in 1988.

1977 was right smack dab in the middle of the Golden Age of Porn, when porn films were routinely shown and advertised in the New York Times and other newspapers. You can still see the ads in the Times Machine if you have a NY Times on-line subscription. If you don't want to pay for a subscription, you can sign up for a trial for 4 weeks or whatever they're offering, and cancel, or you can check every day until you find a sample paper from the era. Samples change every day, but lately they've had a lot from the Watergate era for obvious reasons. Today's sample issue, though, is from 1898.

In college, Mason and I wrote a Guide To Times Square Porno Shops for the school newspaper (this was 1977). In the course of our research, I actually did see an amateur movie called "Two Nuns And A Donkey" -- which was exactly what you got.


I just saw this post again and I would like to highlight it. This may be my favorite thing Damien wrote in his many years on this board!

Tom Jones only needs to be seen to learn what people "Objectively" overreacted to in 1963.


Whatever. It's an important movie and interesting for many reasons.

There's little enough traffic on this forum that I thought you'd be glad for the clicks. I've been meaning to hit the Shouldabeens threads, however.

And as for 'I don't care for the films', that's not a sentiment unshared by people here for certain years. I don't think anyone can objectively say that a Lilies of the Field, The V.I.P.s and Tom Jones triple-feature looks like a particularly amusing activity

Honestly, your posts seem more suited to the Oscar Shouldabeens threads than these. These threads are meant for discussing and dissecting the races as they occurred. Not as they should have been in your own personal competition.

I enjoy your posts but you seem to be missing the point. I mean, most folks don't even post here until they've seen all the nominees and can give a thorough explanation as to why they're backing one performance over the other four.



Yes, and also... "none of the films interest me in the slightest"... I mean, even if one doesn't care at all about the Oscars, at least Tom Jones SHOULD be of interest to anyone who's seriously into movies, into film history.

Forgot to include my Top 5 for this year:
1. Lilia Skala in Lilies of the Field
2. Dame Edith Evans in Tom Jones
3. Joan Greenwood in Tom Jones
4. Anouk Aimee in 8 1/2
5. Jane Withers in Captain Newman, M.D.

Haven't seen Tom Jones, so null vote. There's a different movie that should've gobbled up no less than three of the slots in this category.

Anouk Aimee,
Eddra Gale,
Suzanne Pleshette, The Birds
Sandra Milo,
Patricia Neal, Hud
