"Energetically Yours" Ronald Searle 1957


  1. When are you handsome bastards going to do an article on the mucky Euro flicks that used to be on BBC2 Friday nights in the late 70s? It was shocking to a square-eyed green young thing like me, but was downplayed so that C4's 'Red Triangle Zone' was made to seem edgy and groundbreaking by media consensus a few years later.

    I shall always remember the married French couple rolling about on the bed, her still in her bra, when one of them nearly knocks over a bottle on the bedside table -

    "You nearly got wine in my shoes"
    "Don't be disgusting"

    And the virginal French lads comparing their assets as part of the cherry-losing preparation - "C'est formidable!!" was the view expressed on one lucky feller's out-of-shot motivation.

    Tres Gallique. Vive la mucque.

  2. It's only a matter of time!

    'Vive la mucque' - I like that.
