move noticed many of her films are not on digital format.

I ordered the brass bottle on dvd.

I have several of her films on my digital wish list:
Flaming Star
7 faces of dr. Lau
Ride the wild surf

how is five weeks in a balloon?

I also noted that the entire series of Jeannie is now in digital. It’s $70 but has dropped down to $30. It’s still standard def which is a shame.

I think Barbara Eden deserves her own appreciation thread too.
I've just received an email from Screen Archives in which they state that Flaming Star is still available at $8.95 but at very low quantity. So. if you're interested, don't delay even for one day! ($8.95! I paid full price when it was new!)

Nine months ago I mentioned that Lori Nelson was still with us. Not any more, I'm sorry to say. She died two days ago at 87 years of age.

I'll continue to like her and I'll watch one of her movies in the next day or so.

Two days ago I watched Black Angel on a very good Blu-ray disc and once again was impressed by June Vincent. It's high time she made a new appearance in this thread.

Last night I had another viewing of In A Lonely Place where she's in the first scene in an uncredited bit part. I find it sad that only a few years after Black Angel June Vincent was playing such tiny roles.

June Vincent is terrific in a neat 1952 Republic Rex Allen western titled COLORADO SUNDOWN. She is the personification of evil and sexy as hell.
Unfortunately, that's available on disc only on an Alpha Video DVD. Alpha Video! Too high a price even for June Vincent!

A few days ago I watched Kino-Lorber's new Blu-ray disc of Caper Of The Golden Bulls in which Yvette Mimieux is one of the two female leads.

I first came across Yvette Mimieux in The Time Machine when I was in my early teens. I was enchanted by her and was so pleased that she and her publicity stills were featured in several film magazines of the period.

She was fairly busy in the sixties and most of her films are available on disc for those who prefer physical media.

I, too, became enchanted with Ms. Mimieux as Weena in The Time Machine, Robin. A truly ethereal sort of beauty.

Have been meaning to pick up that Kino Blu of Caper of the Running Bulls at some point.

Adele Jergens was in many films, most of which are now forgotten. I first noticed her in two low quality musicals starring Rita Hayworth and later came across her again in Armoured Car Robbery.

View attachment 50252

She had quite a busy career until she decided to quit. She deserves to be remembered.
I re-watched Down To Earth two days ago and remade my acquaintance with Adele Jergens who's overdue for a reappearance in this thread.

Adele began as a model and performed in several Broadway musicals before securing a starlet's contract with 20th Century Fox. After appearing in two Betty Grable movies, she was dropped by Fox and moved to Columbia where again she either supported a much bigger star, this time Rita Hayworth, or had major roles in minor films.

Later she blossomed in crime films like Treasure Of Monte Cristo and Armoured Car Robbery and it is for these films that she is most remembered.

Of course, she is also remembered for her looks! I'm going to watch her today in Strange Lady In Town.

I watched Strange Lady In Town yesterday. it's not a good film, the MOD is not a good disc and Adele Jergens has only two scenes! She is however a strong presence in both of them.

Adele Jergens runs away with a 1956 teen crime movie titled RUNAWAY DAUGHTERS (American International) that's available on Shout Factory TV and on Amazon Prime. The movie itself is no classic but Adele and Gloria Castillo are constantly busting on each other. They make the whole picture worthwhile.
