Wanda, the only film directed by actress Barbara Loden, was released in a limited theatrical run in New York City in 1971. Though it was praised in Europe and won the International Critics' Prize at the Venice Film Festival, it languished in obscurity until 2003 when it was re-issued to theaters in France. A DVD release followed, first in France and then in the U.S. In 2010, a new 35mm print was struck from the newly discovered 16mm original rolls, and the film was re-released to specialty venues in the U.S.

Ecstacy starring Hedy Lamarr
Ecstasy (Czech: Extase, French: Extase, German: Ekstase) is a 1933 Czech-Austrian romantic drama film directed by Gustav Machatý and starring Hedy Lamarr (then Hedy Kiesler), Aribert Mog, and Zvonimir Rogoz.Written by František Horký, Gustav Machatý, Jacques A. Koerpel, and Robert Horký, the film is about a young woman who marries a wealthy but much older man. After abandoning her brief passionless marriage, she meets a young virile engineer who becomes her lover. Ecstasy was filmed in three language versions—German, Czech, and French. Ecstasy was highly controversial in its time because of scenes in which Lamarr swims in the nude and runs through the countryside naked. It is also perhaps the first non-pornographic movie to portray sexual intercourse and female orgasm, although never showing more than the actors' faces. The film was celebrated as the first motion picture to include a nude scene, rather than the first to show sexual intercourse, for which it has a better claim.

Don’t have an hour to kill watching some documentary you could’ve seen in your 7th grade Social Studies class? No worries; we got you covered. Take a look at some of the highlights we found from this bizarre and hilarious “tour video.”There are some sweet Jackson moments as well. Check out Part 3 of the series for some classic live footage of the group performing “Hum Along and Dance.” The scene at the venue looks insane—people climbing the venue walls, the gangstas ticket counters all are wearing shades (at night!), leather jackets, and have hand rolled cigarettes dangling from their mouths, adding a level of intimidation. To top it all off, J5 had some technical trouble, delaying the manic crowd for a few hours.
