The Ghost Army (2013)

 The Ghost Army (2013) 

During World War II, a hand-picked group of American GI's undertook a bizarre mission: create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. The 23rd Headquarters Special Troops used inflatable rubber tanks, sound trucks, and dazzling performance art to bluff the enemy again and again, often right along the front lines. Many of the men picked to carry out these dangerous deception missions were artists. Some went on to become famous, including fashion designer Bill Blass. In their spare time, they painted and sketched their way across Europe, creating a unique and moving visual record of their war. Their secret mission was kept hushed up for nearly 50 years after the war's end.

She Mob (1968)

 She Mob (1968)

"She-Mob" is one of the most entertainingly bad movies ever made. Sure, its incompetently made, but it has that special and rare sort of ineptitude that crosses the line over into surrealism. Like the works of Ed Wood or Phil Tucker, when one watches this you must wonder how it could've possibly been made by a sane mind. Its so filled with a lack of continuity, utterly unappealing nudity, and an overall lack of intelligence that I'd be surprised if even drive-in audiences at the time took it remotely seriously. However, it remains immortal as a trash classic, a film which screams for a bigger cult following than it has at the moment.

The plot revolves around Big Shim, a vicious metal-bra wearing butch, who escapes from prison with her gang of female cohorts. To get some cash, they kidnap a gigolo who's currently shacked up with a wealthy socialite. They subject him to brutal torture such as having to make love to them all. The socialite gets wind of all this, but instead of giving into the She-Mob, she hires a female private eye named Sweety East, a cross between Honey West and Brigitte Bardot with some overpowering Divine-style eyelashes. Eventually the gigolo escapes with Big Shim's female toy, but finds he's only beginning to endure the wrath of the She-Mob. (IMDB TheMarquisDeSuave)

 In 1961, the American plastic surgeons Thomas Cronin and Frank Gerow, and the Dow Corning Corporation, developed the first silicone breast prosthesis, filled with silicone gel; in due course, the first augmentation mammoplasty was performed in 1962 using the Cronin–Gerow Implant, prosthesis model 1963.


Although seven studies have statistically connected a woman’s breast augmentation to a greater suicide-rate, the research indicates that breast augmentation surgery does not increase the death rate; and that, in the first instance, it is the psychopathologically-inclined woman who is likelier to undergo a breast augmentation procedure.
