Archaeology / Art

A man goes into a nail salon with his girlfriend to get his toes "did" for the first time and wonders if he'll still have points left on his "man" card.Mens’ feet tend to look like the face of a UFC fighter--to’ up. No, not torn up. "To’ up from the flo’ up."Pampering feet is a right of passage for women only. That goes for manicures and spas, too. Real men don't do "beauty" overhauls such as pedicures. At least that’s what you might believe. Imagine somebody like John Rambo getting foot work. Not pretty.

Premature Eradication - Prequel

Archaeology / Art

Premature Eradication is a two-part suspense series that has a unique spin on the age-old tale of a woman scorned, and a man unknowingly chosen to endure the greatest of all nightmares. As the saying goes, “when a woman’s fed up, there ain’t nothin’ you can do about it” ... except run.Way too often, the fire flickers out in a relationship. Many men become lazy, striving to get quick-draw, “drive-by” satisfaction from their partners. That leaves wives and girlfriends frustrated and wide awake, while their male companions lay satisfied and meeting the Sandman within minutes. Just another uneventful night of “dip, dive, and doze” that has become the routine. Robert Johnson is no different with Tosha, his wife of five years. The marathons of the past have long become 50-yard sprints. When introduced to a new pill called Erectz, the mindless humping doesn’t improve; they just become more frequent. Fed up with the "male species," Tosha bands together with other like-minded women to expose men for what they really are—vile, selfish, lazy, and completely unnecessary. But they are good for one thing.

A Fistful of Dynamite

A Fistful of Dynamite

James Lewis

Archaeology / Art

Take a fortune in gold and two men with an impossible plan to steal it. Give them enough arms and ammunition to hold off an army—then bring on the army! John Mallory was dynamite … a fugitive Irish revolutionary who knew all there was to know about explosives—and carried enough TNT on his back to level a city. Juan Mirandez Ibanez was a lighted match … a cut-throat Mexican bandit with comtempt for a corrupt government, a taste for tequila, an eye for other men’s wives—and a weakness for over-stuffed bank vaults. They went through the lawless, rebellious Mexican countryside like a lighted powder train, and the explosion spared no one. Rafran Films presents Rod Steiger • James Coburn • Romolo Valli in “A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE” Screenplay by Luciano Vincenzoni, Sergio Donati and Sergio Leone. Original Music Composed and Conducted by Ennio Morricone. Directed by Sergio Leone. Produced by Fulvio Morsella.
