    Bolded films I've seen, may have seen a few others.

    Just picked up the Never Let Go DVD last week. Interesting to see Peter Sellers playing a vicious thug!

    Saw Towering Inferno and King Kong at the cinema. Sheena gets three stars for Tanya Roberts riding and bouncing about on a zebra, climbing trees, skinny dipping, leaping out of helicopters, swinging thru the jungle, taking her clothes off and just looking spectacularly gorgeous.[​IMG]

    Sheena and Inferno for me.


    Funny Sheena story. A co-worker and his wife went to see it in the theater. In an early scene, Sheena is riding a zebra. The guy's wife pointed out that it wasn't even a zebra, but a horse with stripes painted on it. His response... "Who's looking at the zebra?"

    King Kong (1976) - 3/10

    Another one I haven't seen for a long, long time. Score based on very hazy impressions.
