Doc Sleaze: ‘I’m Not Racist, But…’ (6/30/20)

50:39 – Another trawl through pop culture obscurities, in which we uncover the depressing reality behind seventies British sex comedies, celebrate those unsung heroes of TV and film – the supporting players and character actors, watch London destroyed by a man in a lizard suit, explore the commodification of freedom, before looking at those non-racist racists we all know. All this and more, including:

Adventures of a Taxi Driver (1976) excerpt ¦ Adventures in Smut ¦ Adventures of a Plumber’s Mate (1978) excerpt ¦ More Adventures in Smut ¦ Adventures of a Taxi Driver opening and closing theme ¦ Eugene Deckers ¦ Random Movie Trailer – Gorgo (1961) ¦ Forgotten Film: Mister Freedom (1968) ¦ Adventures of a Private Eye (1977) excerpt (featuring Christopher Neil and Diana Dors) ¦ Sex Ban? ¦ The Spook Who Sat By the Door (1973) trailer ¦ ‘I’m Not Racist, But…’

Schlock Express: Space Oddities (5/21/20)

35:17 – Schlock Express is back with a no-frills lockdown episode. From plastic bikinis and clunky robots to space heroes with drawn on moustaches, we take a look into the wild world of Italian Star Wars knock offs.

Kicking off with The Humanoid and its cast of James Bond veterans, we move on to possibly the high point of this sub-genre with the magnificently surreal Starcrash before plumbing the depths with Alfonso Brescia’s poverty stricken space opera, Star Odyssey.
