The Shah of Iran was a major reason for why the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis came about in the first place. Because the Shah was a dictator and at times a brutal dictator even though he was moderate in other areas like in economic and foreign policy. But he used his vast powers to keep the opposition that was democratic and theocratic down with his Secret Police and arresting people without charges. And holding them indefinitely without trial. And as a result the Islamists in Iran woke up and fought back and took over the country.

- The Wild Party with James Coco, and Raquel Welch, and a lot of other people. This is another good, funny, entertaining, but not great Raquel Welch film. Which seems to be the main pattern in her movie career. She's a great comedic actress and even comedian, but I'm not sure you can credibly say she's ever been in a great film. James Coco is the real star in this film. He's absolutely hilarious and was a great comedic actor.Now that's what I call an elbow smash (for all you old school wrestling fans) that Raquel Welch delivers in Kansas City Bomber. Roller derby is definitely not a sport for golfers and chess players.Hollywood Goddess Raquel Welch, in Kansas City Bomber.

Roller derby was a fairly popular sport in the 1970s, or at least it was around, sort of like indoor soccer. I don't think this is a great movie, but again Raquel plays an adorable badass, that you should never mess with. And I like Kevin McCarthy (the actor, not politician) a lot as well.Cathryn Paradise: "Trying to get her leather pants to fit."Alan Seader: "People forget She has one of Hollywoods Highest, IQ's."
