"She was one of the working stiff actors who made American movies a sort of extended family for me. If I don't do this for her, who will?" Memory and movies collide when the narrator of Comfort and Joi, award-winning screenwriter Joseph Dougherty's imaginative blend of fiction and film fact, sets out to document the life and work of bosomy blonde bombshell Joi Lansing, a minor glamour girl who appeared in such "classics" as Hillbillys in a Haunted House and Queen of Outer Space. Alone in a borrowed house on the California coast during a winter weekend, he indulges his fascination with the pin-up who rose from extra girl to work with Orson Welles, only to end her career in grade-z horror pictures. Offbeat movie history from the fringes of Hollywood triggers haunting personal memories as he follows this "beautiful beacon in a Sargasso of bad filmmaking" and finds an unexpected path to his own past. "Dougherty is a humanist who argues that each of us has to look, listen, choose, and commit. His work is as encouraging as it is enlightening." -Douglas Heil, Prime-Time Authorship

Discover the story of an actress, who earned fame and fortune with a seductive smile, an eye-popping hourglass figure, and a "dumb blonde" persona that belied the fact that she spoke five languages and was a concert violist and pianist. Jayne Mansfield was an American actress in film, theatre, and television. She was also a nightclub entertainer, a singer, and one of the early Playboy Playmates. She was a major Hollywood sex symbol of the 1950s and early 1960s. She was 20th Century Fox's answer to Marilyn Monroe and came to be known as the "Working Man's Monroe" and as America's "Smartest Dumb Blonde." She was also known for her well-publicized personal life and publicity stunts, such as wardrobe malfunctions. Jayne became a major Broadway star in 1955, a major Hollywood star in 1956, and a leading celebrity in 1957. Her film and stage career was short-lived, yet she experienced several box office successes and won a Theatre World Award and a Golden Globe. She enjoyed success in the role of fictional actress Rita Marlowe, both in the 1955-1956 Broadway version and the 1957 Hollywood film version of Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? She showcased her comedic skills in The Girl Can't Help It (1956), her dramatic assets in The Wayward Bus (1957), and her sizzling presence in Too Hot to Handle (1960). She also sang for studio recordings, including the album Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky & Me and the single "As the Clouds Drift By," which was backed with "Suey," both featuring legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix). Jayne's notable television work included television dramas Follow the Sun and Burke's Law, game shows The Match Game and What's My Line?, variety shows The Jack Benny Program and The Bob Hope Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and a large number of talk shows. By the early 1960s, Jayne's box office popularity had declined and Hollywood studios lost interest in her. In the sexploitation film Promises! Promises! (1963), she became the first major American actress to have a nude starring role in a Hollywood motion picture. She was married three times and had three children. The world was stunned when died in a car accident at the young age of thirty-four. This profusely illustrated biography reveals her private life, her tragic death, and her roles in films, stage plays, and television appearances. Everything you've ever wanted to know about her can be found in Affectionately, Jayne Mansfield.

Though it was penned nearly a century ago, current-day readers will find that Bertrand Russell's insightful critique of China is still surprisingly accurate. The important British philosopher based his arguments on his own extended stay in China, and the resulting analysis of the conflict between traditional culture and the rise of capitalism in the country is keen and multi-dimensional.

Roger Ebert awards at least two out of four stars to most of the more than 150 movies he reviews each year. But when the noted film critic does pan a movie, the result is a humorous, scathing critique far more entertaining than the movie itself. I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie is a collection of more than 200 of Ebert's most biting and entertaining reviews of films receiving a mere star or less from the only film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. Ebert has no patience for these atrocious movies and minces no words in skewering the offenders. Witness: Armageddon * (1998) --The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense, and the human desire to be entertained. No matter what they're charging to get in, it's worth more to get out. The Beverly Hillbillies* (1993)--Imagine the dumbest half-hour sitcom you've ever seen, spin it out to ninety-three minutes by making it even more thin and shallow, and you have this movie. It's appalling. North no stars (1994)--I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it. Police Academy no stars (1984)--It's so bad, maybe you should pool your money and draw straws and send one of the guys off to rent it so that in the future, whenever you think you're sitting through a bad comedy, he could shake his head, chuckle tolerantly, and explain that you don't know what bad is. Dear God * (1996)--Dear God is the kind of movie where you walk out repeating the title, but not with a smile. The movies reviewed within I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie are motion pictures you'll want to distance yourself from, but Roger Ebert's creative and comical musings on those films make for a book no movie fan should miss.
