THE DOLL SQUAD
1973, Vinegar Syndrome, 92 min, USA, Dir: Ted V. Mikels

When evil mastermind Michael Ansara threatens to unleash the bubonic plague, the government tries to stop him with a computer-selected team of female assassins led by Francine York (and including FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!’s Tura Satana). Shot in L.A., the California desert and on Catalina Island, years before anyone had ever heard of “Charlie's Angels,” this highly entertaining cult favorite boasts a wonderfully cheesy ’70s score and plenty of martial arts action and gunplay.


THE NAKED KISS
1964, Ben Barry & Association, 93 min, USA, Dir: Samuel Fuller

A prostitute (Constance Towers) attempts to turn her life around but, after establishing herself as a nurse in a small town, she discovers that her fiancé has a terrible, shattering secret. Also starring Michael Dante and Anthony Eisley. Photographed by Stanley Cortez, this unique pulp melodrama is Samuel Fuller’s most potent examination of appearance and reality with respect to the “American dream.” "In NAKED KISS, I maintained that no matter how low someone is in the depths of their profession, there’s someone lower." - Fuller
