    Coming to Blu-ray July 20th from Kino Classics and Something Weird!

    Girl Gang (1954) / Pin-Down Girl (1951)
    Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture, Vol. 11

    By the late 1940s, exploitation producers such as George Weiss (Test Tube Babies, Glen or Glenda?) drifted away from the pseudo-educational framework of the genre and began producing risqué crime melodramas. No films better represent the “mainstreaming” of exploitation than Girl Gang and Pin-Down Girl, and no actor was more suited to such low-grade potboilers than deadpan baritone Timothy Farrell. In Girl Gang, Farrell is a small-time mob boss who feeds dope to high school girls hungry for kicks. A return to the gymnasium setting of Weiss and Farrell’s The Devil’s Sleep, Pin-Down Girl stars Peaches Page as a woman caught in the vice-riddled world of female wrestling. Girl Gang was mastered in 2K from the original 35mm negative; Pin-Down Girl was mastered in 2K from a 35mm re-release version (The Blonde Pick-Up).

    Special features:
    *Audio commentary for Girl Gang by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
    *Audio commentary for Pin-Down Girl by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films 1919-1959
    *Optional English SDH subtitles
    *Theatrical trailers

    Volume 11!

    From the era of pasties and a g-string come a bevy of burlesque beauties performing their signature striptease acts, accompanied by a raucous gang of hairy-armed, baggy-pants comedians, testing the boundaries of what was morally permissible on the midcentury movie screen. Both Peek-a-Boo and “B” Girl Rhapsody are directed by burlesque impresario Lillian Hunt, who shot the film in a style that preserves the theatrical experience, never allowing the viewer to cross the footlights, never affording the audience too close a view. The results are two time capsules that offer priceless front-row views of old-school bump and grind (shot on location at the New Follies Theater in Los Angeles), a treat for nostalgic octogenarians and millenial New Burlesque fans alike.

    Blu-ray Extras Include:

    Audio commentary for Peek-A-Boo by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films 1919-1959
    Audio commentary for “B” Girl Rhapsody by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
    Theatrical trailers

    Any news on what's next?

    Maniac needs its own edition like Mom and Dad. Also, the Something Weird Double Feature of Street Corner and Because of Eve is pretty essential as well.
