This scene doesn’t look that different from Ursula Andress’s first scene in James Bond’s Dr. No from 1962, where she appears out of the middle of nowhere on the beach in Bahamas wearing nothing but a bikini. She’s a little more conservatively dressed here, ( little, might be an overstatement ) and the plot is a little different.

But here she is with a man she doesn’t trust and perhaps doesn’t even like and is being chased by assassins who want to kill both of them. And they sort of have to work together just to survive the experience.

Fathom from 1967 with Raquel Welch and Tony Francoisa, doesn’t look much different from this scene as well. A man and woman who are after the same goal, but start off as competitors to achieve the same objective, but then discover they’re better off working with each other to achieve the same objective.

Just replace Ursula with Raquel, but what’s different: two young, hot baby face goddesses who seem childlike and immature, because they’re so adorable and yet both absolutely gorgeous and very sexy. But both are very sharp and tough and not meant to be messed with, if you know what’s good for you.

Mean Guns from 1997: if you’re not familiar with this movie, you might be on a very long waiting list of people that stretches an entire continent of people waiting to get into the club of people who’ve never heard of this movie, not sure if it even qualifies as a c-movie and other than Ice-T and Christopher Lambert, you probably wouldn’t be familiar with anyone else in the movie, unless you just have some obsession for b and c-movies and watch a tone of them, but the plot in that movie is very similar to The 10th Victim: you organize all the assassins into one place and then let them go at it and try to knock each other off with the sole survivor winning a big pot of money or whatever the award is. With the apparent goal to cut back on violence by having the killers kill each other.

To be completely honest here: (for a change, ha, ha) I’ve never actually watched The 10th Vicim and until 5 minutes ago I’ve never even heard of this movie. And perhaps at some point I’ll watch the entire movie and tell you what I think about it. But the plot and idea has been used since and perhaps before. And it looks like a very entertaining movie ( not just Ursula Andress ) and looks like it’s worth watching based on that alone and perhaps for no other reason.

About FredSchneiderUS

I’m a blogger because I like writing about things I’m interested in and knowledgeable about. Which shouldn’t sound surprising, but blogging provides that immediate outlet for me and other bloggers to weigh in on what they’re thinking about and what they’re interested in. To put down on paper or computer words and feelings that they may struggle to get out of their mouths on the spot. To be able think about things and then express them. That is what blogging and writing is about, at least when it comes to commentary. Writing as a reporter or biographer, is a bit different. Because it’s not so much about what the writer feels that is relevant unless they’re being asked about it. But what’s more important is what they know and how they know that based on their reporting. An opportunity for blogger commentators to get things off their chest that perhaps they’re not able to do simply by speaking to people. That is my favorite thing about blogging to be able to immediately get things off my chest that I’m thinking about. Blogging is the perfect form of communication for me, because I’m interested in so many different things and frankly knowledgeable about them. I write mostly about current affairs. Government and politics, public policy, history, but I’m also interested in sports especially sports history, as well as movies especially classic Hollywood and entertainers. Especially entertainers who’ve been around a long time and are from classic Hollywood. Today’s Hollywood and entertainment, not so much, but that is a subject for another piece. And when you’re a blogger and you just read something that got your attention and were really interested in from either a positive or negative standpoint, or perhaps you just saw a movie or saw some story and you’re really interested in and knowledgeable about what you just saw, you can immediately weigh in on what you just saw. I mean to be a blogger all you really need is a computer and have something to say. Being able to write helps as well. That is what blogging and writing is to me. The ability for people to write what they’re thinking and how they feel, as well as what they know. Which is the most important thing here, because even commentators need to know what they’re talking about to be successful and make a living at that. Whether they write or talk on TV or radio, or a combination of all those things. That is what I’m going to do here and if you’re someone who has multiple interests and are interested in things besides who the latest hot celebrity is and who that person is seeing and why they’re in trouble now, or what the latest new technology is, then I hope you check out this blog. Because I cover a lot of different things here and not just government and politics, but history including Hollywood history and to a certain extent what’s going on there today. And you might even see a few pieces about so -called celebrity culture, but just from a a satiric viewpoint.
