Yeah, due to some dire circumstances that really don’t need to be gotten into here, I didn’t get to see Star Wars — yes, Star Wars, save it, New Hopers — until the ’78 re-release at the old Hastings Drive-In. (Had the comics, had the trading cards, had the t-shirt, had the action-figures, but no movie.) So, in the spirit of Johnny-Come-Lately, I’ll present the second-run ads first. This latest batch also marks my 500th post. On the old site, after four years of posting, I didn’t even come close to that amount so I must be doing something right. Hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed digging them up and posting ’em, folks. Stay tuned. Lots more to come.

Apparently, these South Sea and Far East Goona Goona flicks were a genre all by themselves. Who knew, right? Well, anyways, depending on which translation you believe, Goona Goona either refers to a potent aphrodisiac or some kind of evil spell. Hunh … On second thought, that might be considered the same thing in some circles. But not mine. And these films, about a baker’s dozen of stock and travelogue footage-fueled exploitaters mostly concerned themselves with the same nookie nookie. This mondo double feature of rehashed releases then continues with a trip to Africa, specifically a safari through the Belgian Congo, for a peek at the taboos of the local tribes — in a National Geographic sense, if you know what I mean.

If being shot by cult-fave Ray Dennis Steckler isn’t enough to bring you to something like The Erotic Adventures of Pinocchio, where our artificial stud’s you-know-what grows instead of his nose when he gets randy, well, what if I told you Dyanne Thorne played his Fairy Godmother, whose spells usually backfire leaving her to run around in the buff. That’s right: it’s the She-Wolf of the SS by way of Walt Disney. Get thee to the adult video store! And while you’re there, you might as well check out Bill Osco’s Alice in Wonderland, his follow up to the equally demented Flesh Gordon, where cute-as-a-button Kristine DeBell plays Alice as a walking erectile-dysfunction cure-all. Trust me. You don’t wanna know what Humpty Dumpty broke. Now send in the dancing nurses! And if you listen real close, that sound you just heard was Carlo Collodi’s and Lewis Carroll’s graves detonating.
