72. Outlaw, The

Description: Howard Hughes' production of The Outlaw is an interesting piece of film history for many reasons. While it was finished in 1940, it was dropped by 20th Century Fox due to critics' pans and the censors balking at Jane Russell's bulging cleavage. It seems Hughes Aircraft engineers even designed a special cantilevered bra to enhance Russell's attributes, long before her role in the Playtex cross your heart, lift and seperate bra commercials. (the gun control lobby today would be throwing fits, as Russell was packing a pair of 38s). In addition, famed director Howard Hawks was fired during production by Hughes, as there was some animosity between Russell and Hawks, and at the time, Russell was Howard Hughes' girlfriend.

Description: She Demons is a classic 50's sci-fi movie, a B movie, where B is for BAD. A nazi colonel is performing horrible experiments on beautiful women, trying to help his wife get her face back, after she was disfigured in a lab accident years ago. A hurricane brings some new guests to the island, who learn the truth about the evil scientist and his experimentson women. This movie reaches for new lows in poor writing, acting, and production - which of course is why it is so cool. While not as bad as some Ed Wood masterpieces - it does approach this level of lameness. See if you don't agree. Best viewed by those with time on their hands.
