On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record. Vargas suspects that Quinlan has planted evidence to win his past convictions, and he is not about to let the suspect in the current case be railroaded. Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap. Dissecting the nature of good and evil in a hallucinatory, nightmarish ambiance, this baroque south-of-the-border mystery opens with one of the most remarkably extended long takes in movie history

Mae West : the glamour collection( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mae West had an inexhaustibly playful interest in language, and a rare, sometimes perplexing, and even lofty wit, spiced by low-down slang. Well before the second wave of feminism, she wrote all her own material, insisted on total control of her work, and was wildly popular for a short time, right before the Production Code lowered the boom on adult attitudes being expressed in films. She made only 12 movies, but three are first-rate, and these were enough to seal her fame and launch a legend. In her first film appearance, "Night after night," a successful ex-boxer buys a high-class speakeasy and falls for a rich society girl. As the bold Tira in "I'm no angel," she works as a dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. For "Goin' to town," West goes Western. Cleo Borden is a former dance hall queen who has become newly rich. She falls for--and pursues--an upper crust Englishman. This is followed by "Go west young man," where she plays Mavis Arden, a movie star stranded in the country. To stifle her boredom, she trifles with a young man's affections. "My little chickadee" pairs West with a legend of similar stature, W.C. Fields. As Flower Belle Lee, she is rightly suspected of illicit relations with the Masked Bandit, and run out of Little Bend. Surprisingly, things change very little when she arrives in Greasewood City to start over
