My old gag cartoon

Here is my gag cartoon from 1999, published in French:

English translation:
- Darling, don't you think your mother's portrait would fit much better in our living room?

Forbidden planet and a mini skirt

Attractive actresses in the bold outfits or even nude, were quite often trumps in the sleeves of the movie producers, adding an additional dimension to the adventure, crime, romance, western, sci fi, history or any other type of the movie. In fact, there are more movies using that trick than those without it.
The Forbidden planet's only female star Anne Francis played the cute and sexy, and yet innocent role in the film perfectly. Her wardrobe consisted mainly of micro mini skirts, the fashion that was to conquer the World on storm, only about a decade later.
There are some nice high resolution images form the Forbidden planet on: Dr. Macro's High
Quality Movie Scans

Anne Francis died 80 years old in 2011.
