The Dame Edna Experience - The Complete Series 1
Manufacturer: BBC Warner Brand: Warner Manufacturing
She's no ordinary star, she's a megastar! Larger than life and brimming with wit and hilarity, she's Dame Edna Everage! And she's inviting you to explore all her nooks and crannies in The Dame Edna Experience. Available for the first time ever, this series of six variety/chat shows (or, as Dame Edna calls them, "monologues interrupted by total strangers") is guaranteed to keep you in stitches. Celebrity guests (foils for Dame Edna's rapier wit) include Sean Connery, Charlton Heston, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Jane Seymour, Larry Hagman, Rudolf Nureyev and Joan Rivers! DVD Features:Featurette:The BAFTA-winning program An Audience with Dame Edna Everage Ester: Dame Edna Everage, a 30 minute talk show from the U.K. in which Dame Edna 'bares all' so to speak. Interviews:Two interviews with Dame Edna creator Barry Humphries, one of which is conducted by Dame Edna herself! Music Clips:Dame Edna performs her theme song "Niceness" Other:Exclusive Dame Edna introduction PLUS the Madge button! Dame Edna Everage--an Australian housewife turned megastar in her own mind--is possibly the most entertaining person alive. Of couse, she's not actually a real person; she's the alter-ego of comic genius Barry Humphries, the cocoon from which Edna bursts out like a radiant butterfly. Her 1980s talk show, The Dame Edna Experience, proves an ideal format to wallow in her splendor. Though the hairstyles and fashion choices of her guests may have dated--Jane Seymour looks like a meringue pastry topped with shaved cinnamon--Edna's dazzling egomania and Humphries's wicked, sure-footed wit are amazingly fresh. Whether she's wheedling sex tips out of Zsa Zsa Gabor, flirting with Charlton Heston, trading fashion tips with Jerry Hall, singing a duet with Cliff Richard, practically yawning in Sean Connery's face, or simply reveling in her own marvelousness, Dame Edna will charm your pants off. On top of the talk show, there's a short interview that Dame Edna does with Barry Humphries himself (spooky!) and a TV special in which Dame Edna takes completely unrehearsed questions from an audience of British celebrities. Her effortlessly funny improvised responses will leave you agog. --Bret Fetzer
The Dame Edna Experience - The Christmas Specials
Manufacturer: Independent Television (ITV) Brand: Warner Manufacturing
Two hilarious programs from the outrageous megastar, Dame Edna Everage! First it's The Dame Edna Christmas Experience featuring celebrity guests Roger Moore, Lulu and Australian Cultural Attache Sir Les Patterson! And if that isn't enough, viewers are also invited to Mount Edna for A Night on Mount Edna, a hilarious visit to Dame Edna's Swiss chalet, featuring Gina Lollobrigida, Charlton Heston, Julio Iglesias and a chat with Mel Gibson in Dame Edna's sauna! Plus Dame Edna's Christmas Message to the Commonwealth! Christmas will never be the same! What more could one want under one's Christmas tree than Dame Edna Everage? The glorious alter-ego of Australian comic Barry Humphries sparkles in two Christmas specials, Dame Edna's Christmas Experience from 1987 and A Night on Mount Edna from 1990. Watching Dame Edna discuss skiing and valium with Gina Lollobridgida or interviewing Mel Gibson in her personal sauna--it's a cornucopia of daffy narcissism and off-the-wall double entendres. Charlton Heston appears as Dame Edna's houseboy, running to and from the kitchen, finally spilling cheese fondue in Julio Iglesias's lap. This is, as ever, the most giddy and surreal talk show of all time. But for sheer comic genius, it's one of the special features that really pays off: One More Audience with Dame Edna Everage is just Edna herself, alone on stage, breezily spinning out crazed and hilarious responses to audience questions. --Bret Fetzer

Midnight Blue Vol. 2 - Porn Stars of the 70's
Manufacturer: Blue Underground
It's called "The Golden Age of Porn," and late-night cable's MIDNIGHT BLUE was there for every sticky, succulent moment! In these full-length segments from the late '70s, the legendary ladies of adult cinema reveal all like never before:Marilyn Chambers: The Ivory Snow Girl turned erotic superstar shares her thoughts on sex and showbiz, then delivers an uncensored interracial surprise.Georgina Spelvin: "The only real actress in porn" recreates her most controversial scene from THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES before a 42nd Street grindhouse audience.Annie Sprinkle: The uninhibited starlet demonstrates the pleasures - and dangers - of female masturbation with everyday household objects.Veri Knotty: This infamous cult actress performs "the most shocking act in adult films" live on stage at New York's notorious Melody Burlesque.Seka: Porn's Platinum Goddess discusses the art of loving women, the joy of facials and the challenges of working with John Holmes....plus XXX legends Jennifer Welles, Helen Madigan, and Bambi (DEBBIE DOES DALLAS) Woods, studs Marc (Mr. 10 1/2") Stevens and Jamie Gillis, director Carter Stevens, and original commercials for NYC's long-gone swingers clubs, adult theaters, "leisure spas" and more! Blue Underground fires off another retro rocket from the dinosaur days of cable TV with a second round of Midnight Blue, a compilation of interviews and shenanigans from the eponymous (and infamous) '80s-era cable access show. Hosted by Screw publisher Al Goldstein, Midnight Blue invited mainstream and adult celebrities alike to discuss their lives and lusts with uncensored abandon. The focus on this disc is XXX stars from the '70s and '80s, including Marilyn Chambers, Georgina Spelvin, and Annie Sprinkle, each of whom discuss their sex lives on and off the set in unsparing detail, with Goldstein offering a mix of slobbery compliments and frank questions. Viewers are also treated to footage of stars like Seka and Veri Knotty performing their stage acts (Ms. Knotty's routine is not for the faint-hearted), and Georgina Spelvin recreates her snake dance from The Devil in Miss Jones. Though the interviews and on-location footage (which includes visits to a film set and a trip to the notorious Plato's Retreat in New York) is for the most part smutty, Goldstein does offer the performers a forum to speak frankly about their chosen professions, and even sound off on various grievances. For classic adult-film fans, this peek behind the scenes is fairly priceless, especially seeing how it hasn't been available for viewing since its original broadcast; the supplemental feature is an optional pop-up trivia text track that offers a barrage of info on the DVD's subjects. --Paul Gaita

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
Manufacturer: Mpi Home Video Brand: MPI Model: 2222666
So many couples do not understood that men and women are simply different. To further explore this issue, ABC News decided to profile six brave couples whose lives were frayed by endless marital battles. The experiment: could these couples benefit from the extraordinary insights into male and female differences that have made John Gray's Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus a phenomenal best seller? Host Barbara Walters takes an eight-month journey of rediscovery as these frustrated couples, baring souls and fangs, allow cameras to witness their arguments over their stresses and struggles from their living rooms, support-group sessions, and finally form a live television studio in front of John Gray himself. Thanks to Gray's advice and wisdom, the couples are better able to understand how men and women can fulfill each other's needs and fall in love again. The message for all of us is simple. With respect and acceptance, Martians and Venusians can love and enjoy each other to the fullest.
