GIMPIX

Plastered Women in Movies and on Television

Featured Clips
Anyone know the title of this or have a better copy?
From Marcus Welby. I think there may some footage missing of her in a white business type outfit. I deleted the gown scenes since the cast was not visible.
If Youtube disable the clip you can download it here but I would rather use their bandwidth! Opposite (right) click & save to file is also preferred.
Beverly Hillbillies I believe?
If Youtube disable this clip you can download it here but I would rather use their bandwidth! Opposite (right) click & save to file is also preferred.
I suspect there is some footage missing here. Also, hopefully I can find a better quality version in my achives.

Great instructional video on how to make a plaster slwc with an attractive female model into the bargain. Narrative is Canadian French which is a bit hard to understand for Canadians like me who learned to speak French in France!
If Youtube disable this clip you can download it here but I would rather use their bandwidth! Opposite (right) click & save to file is also preferred.
Some nice footage from an old 1970's cast care video. No idea of source.

Classic SLWC from the mid Seventies. We now know that this is Susan Hampshire from an episode of the UK Thriller series, titled "kill two birds" (bird=UK slang for 'chick'). The look of the classic plaster walking cast with her orange 'A' line skirt is très sexy!
Here is the best footage from the film Bjurra referenced below. What an awesome slwc and what a high walking heel on it! If Youtube disable the clip you can download it here but I would rather use their bandwidth! Opposite (right) click & save to file is also preferred.




Old posts and outdated TV list - I hope to organize these into a searchable database at a future date.

NRQ-film: 'Bjurra' (ed.note: Program is titled 'NRQ', a play on the TV station's name NRK)

NRK1 (ed.note: state-owned TV station) is showing the film 'Bjurra' from 1970, about children who create their own county in the little fishing village of Bjuraa i Lofoten. (ed.note: Lofoten = island group off the west coast of northern Norway, above the artic circle.)

One summer day 13 children from a boarding school come to Bjurra, together with custodian Pedersen (played by Henki Kolstad) and his wife (played by Inger Marie Andersen). Then one day an accident happens: Ms. Pedersen, who prepares the meals and cleans, breaks her foot and has to stay at the hospital. The children are told the must travel home again. The children take over the food preparation and cleaning on the island. Everything goes well until a stranger arrives to buy up the Island speculate in tourism...
