HAPPY 61st BIRTHDAY, PAM GRIER

All hail Her Royal Foxhhood!

It's the mighty Pam Grier's birthday, so as per my annual observance of what should be a national holiday, I'll be watching one of her films tonight. I think I'll go with THE ARENA (1974), a Roger Corman women-in-prison flick disguised as a proto-Xena gladiator-chicks movie.

I fail to find even one thing wrong with this. It's sleazy, cheesy, badly-dubbed and displays acres of nubile flesh — if only Xena had even 1/100th of this film's gratuitous nudity! — and I hope that it does not fall victim to the current wave of remakes plaguing Hollywood.
