Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 58 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!
Drew declared it Dan Golden and Maria Ford month, so having looked over 1994’s Saturday Night Special last episode, this time we go for one of their most famous collaborations: 1995’s Stripteaser. A psychopathic madman - played by the astounding Rick Dean, in his most incredible performance ever - takes the staff and customers of a strip club named Zipper’s Clown Palace hostage, and then proceeds to alternate between forcing them to act out his whims, and monologuing at them. Seriously, Dean has like a 15 minute monologue in this one. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen on film before.
And of course, given it’s his magnum opus, how could we not look at the life and times of Rick Dean? He was a trained stage actor, and a favourite of a number of LA avant garde playwrights. Unfortunately, he never got the chance to show his skills in A movies, but that’s their loss, right? The B movie world got some seriously unforgettable work from him.
