The Donny & Marie Show 'The Perils of Marie: The Haunted House' *Web Rip*

From Youtube user 512R1H4 comes this Damsel in Distress sketch from the 70's variety show starring Donny and Marie Osmond. Played strictly for laughs, Marie is seated perched on top of a barrel, wrapped in thick white ropes, pleading for help as the walls close in, when a dim-witted Mountie comes to her 'rescue'.

*Well before my time, you can't even put a variety show on TV these days. These two are having way too much fun, but it doesn't take away from the scene at all. There's a tribute credit superimposed on the clip that couldn't be removed, but it disappears pretty quickly. There was another 'Perils of Marie' sketch at the end, but it was only a partial, so I nicked it. Good lord, can the girl scream ! Thanks to the boys on the Brian's Page discussion board for putting me wise to this clip.*

Rebirth of Mothra (Mosura) *WS HQ Web Rip*

Hitomi Takahashi portrays Mrs. Goto who has been tied up and gagged by her daughter who is possessed by an evil mini-witch. The witch's twin sisters and the girl's brother come to the rescue.

*Aimed at kids, but a definite quantum leap forward in terms of storyline and effects from the early rubber suit and chicken wire days of Kaiju, this movie was really good. I teared up a bit when Mothra finally dies and sinks beneath the ocean. It was like the end of an era. This was a cute unexpected little scene, with lots of good close-ups and emoting from the bewildered captive mother.*

Batman 'The Dark Knight' *HQ Web Rip*

Maggie Gyllenhaal portrays Rachel Dawes in this newest film in the re-vamped Batman franchise. In this clip, Rachel has been taken by Joker's goons and left in a warehouse filled with oil drums, more affectionately known as a time bomb.

*Those of you who haven't seen the film yet might want to avoid downloading this clip, since there are a few spoilers in it. Oddly enough, there's not a lot to see damsel-wise, since the scene is quite dark and tends to focus more on the character of Harvey Dent. Regardless, I highly recommend the movie. *

Mariah Carey "Honey" (Music Video Clip) *Hq Ws Web Rip*

Mariah Carey portrays 'Agent M' , a spy in the custody of enemy agents in the opening for this music video. She sits handcuffed in a chair inside a mansion under guard, cooing seductively in Spanish to her captors, until one of them gives her a face-full of his foul breath and she breaks character to tell him so. M breaks loose, leaps from a roof and into a swimming pool...
