out (bullfrog films)
A disarmingly honest and intimate exploration of our society's fascination
with women's breasts. Unflinchingly examines the good, the bad and the ugly
sides of this American icon, delving into the history and politics of
breast obsession in the United States. From breast-crazy men shouting
'Flash those racks!' to the fears of breast cancer and the disparate
attitudes of cultures worldwide, the directors leave no stone unturned in
their quest to demystify the American breast. 57 min.

Greetings Earthlings -

Have found myself in the odd position of programming a showing of "Gap-Toothed Women" (1987 Les Blank).

Am seeking ideas for one or two additional titles to fill out 90 minutes.

Suggestions greatly appreciated.  Other Les Blank titles (There is no beer in heaven?) ?
and/or other titles following the themes in G-T W.?

I trust the greatest source of video programming knowledge in the world for assistance . . .

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
