Agent Carter

I am happy to hear that the hot Agent Carter from Captain America's movies is going to get her own TV show in January. Since the show is going to be set in the 1940s, it also bring me to a question. Will she get a scene where she is tied up and gagged? Let me know what you think :-)

Ukradená vzducholoď (1966) aka The Stolen Airship

This Czechoslovakian comedy is based on the writing of Jules Verne. It includes a scene where a  chambermaid (Štěpánka Řeháková) is tied to a chair and gagged with rope and cloth while the spy who had pretended to be her suitor searches the room.
There is a funny dialogue (in czech) before this scene takes place. The girls asks shyly: "If I invite you in, should I be afraid of you?" and the spy replies: "My dear lady, I wouldn't hurt a flower." The next we see her bound and gagged.

Die Schlangengrube und das Pendel (1967) aka The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism aka Castle of the Walking Dead

This German gothic horror movie was directed by Harald Reinl who also directed some of the Winnetou westerns and stars his wife Karin Dor and Lex Barker (both appearing in the Winnetou flicks, the other one as Old Shatterhand) as well as British horror legend Christopher Lee as the main villain.
Christiane Rucker who plays Karin Dor's companion (maybe her maid) gets abducted and finds herself in a very vicious death trap. She is  really nicely tied and also sports a lovely blue gag over her mouth.
She is saved in time by Barker and Dor. Some nice struggling and mmphing.

The Black Cat (1941)

Spoilers Alert!!!!
An old Universal horror-comedy starring Bela Lugosi and Basil Rathbone (the second time Bela appears in a film called The Black Cat).
There is a bunch of people in an isolated old house with many hidden passages and a cat crematorium. One of them is a murderer. Elaine Winslow (played by Anne Gwynne) discovers who it is and the woman has to get rid of her. So she ties her up, gags her and takes her down to the crematorium to burn her. Fortunately the hero comes in time.

The Flame of new Orleans (1941)

A fake countess played by Marlene Dietrich gets abducted and gagged by her suitor. She isn't tied in any way.
This is the only time Marlene got a treatment in a movie.

3rd Anniversary

 On 22nd August 2011 I created this blog and made my first update. Thank you for your support all these years.

Stills from some of the previous updates over the years:








Dívka na koštěti (1971) aka The Girl on the Broomstick

A long time before Harry Potter, in the Communist Czechoslovakia there was a fairytale world underground with the school of magic as well. Our heroine is called Saxana, her father is a bat who sleeps all day and flies all night, and she gets to the world of humans by accident and has to find her way back. To do so she befriends some guys. One of them becomes her boyfriend while the others are local school bullies. The bullies promise her to help her to get back if she turns their teachers into rabbits. She does so but when she wants them to keep their promise they laugh at her. She threatens to tell her boyfriend and so they tie her up and gag her in the closet. She mumbles a magic word and flies away on a broom stick. By accident she lands in the flat of her teacher, hurting her husband and damaging their Napoleon statue. The teacher unties her.
