Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 18 of our spin-off show about the weird world of softcore skin-flicks!
This episode, we dip our toes into the heady world of Zalman King, and get classy as all heck with his 1988 Southern romance epic Two Moon Junction! Can Alabama senator's daughter Sherilyn Fenn resist the charms of frequently shirtless working class bozo Richard Tyson? Of course not - it's a Zalman King movie, and he's all about the delicious irresistibility of the working class man.
As a bonus, IMDB's parents' guide says you can see Fenn's anus briefly, by the way. Since we recorded this episode, Drew's actually gone and verified that. So that's fun.
We also chat about the life and times of the late, great Mr King, from his time as a commercial diver, through his years as an actor, and finally his years as a genre defining director. 'Soft in the Middle: The Contemporary Softcore Feature in Its Contexts' author David Andrews says, "more than any other individual”, King “facilitated the emergence of contemporary softcore". Good work, Zalman King!
