The Adding Machine

(1969)
$19.99 - Free Shipping In The USA
An accountant named Zero (Milo O'Shea), whose job is about to be taken over by a computer, starts to re-examine his life and his priorities. Following his execution for the murder of his boss, Zero finds himself in heaven, where things are not exactly what he had anticipated. A very obscure sci-fi fantasy film made in the U.K. Based on the 1923 play of the same name (written by Elmer Rice). Also stars Phyllis Diller and Billie Whitelaw. Also with Sydney Chaplin, Phil Brown (aka: Uncle Owen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977) and Julian Glover (aka: General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

Phil Brown blamed former Screen Actor's Guild President, Ronald Reagan, for accusing him of being a communist and ruining his acting career in the U.S.

Brown's brief role as Luke Skywalker's Uncle Owen in the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977) was his most memorable role. He was cast after George Lucas was looking for an an actor with a strong American accent. Brown, who was living in London after being blacklisted in the McCarthy communist-witch hunt of the 1950's, auditioned and won the role instantly.

In his later years, Brown often made appearances at Star Wars conventions. During these appearances, he got to meet Joel Edgerton, who succeeded him in the prequels. Brown died on February 9th, 2006, from pneumonia. He was 89.

The Million Eyes Of Su-Muru

(1967)
$19.99 - Free Shipping In The USA
aka's: The Million Eyes Of Sumuru/The Slaves Of Sumuru/Sumuru Die Tochter Des Satans/Sumuru/The 1000 Eyes Of Su-Muru
In this world of international espionage, where loving men is against the law, the stunning Su-Muru (Shirley Eaton) is globally known as the most diabolical, bizarre and sadistic woman who ever lived. Her all-female, man-hating Amazon cult, kidnaps two CIA agents (Frankie Avalon and George Nader) as part of their plot for the destruction of all mankind. Klaus Kinski steps in with possibly the strangest role of his career, as the creepy homosexual president of Sinonesia, who gets turned into stone. Also stars Wilfrid Hyde-White and with Patti Chandler and Maria Rohm. (In Widescreen format).

Trivia: George Nader retired completely from acting in 1974 after sustaining an eye injury and developing glaucoma. Apparently, the injury made him particularly sensitive to the bright lights used on film sets. According to an interview in the German fanzine Splatting Image, the injury was the result of an accident during the production of a very limited released film titled Zigzag (1963), when a blank pistol round exploded too early and close to his eyes. Filming took place in the Philippines and no adequate treatment was taken in time, resulting in the partial loss of his eyesight.

Nader's longtime companion, Mark Miller, was actor Rock Hudson's personal secretary for nearly 13 years.

Despite the fact that Nader's career was more or less sabotaged by Universal Studios and sacrificed to the tabloids in order to save Rock Hudson's much more lucrative reputation, Hudson and Nader remained life-long friends, but never lovers. Nader was named as one of the beneficiaries of Hudson's $27 million estate when the actor died of AIDS in 1985.

After Nader was finished in films, he turned to writing. His 1978 novel Chrome broke major ground in that it was the first sci-fi thriller to have a homosexual theme (gay robots).

Stricken by multiple medical problems, Nader entered the hospital in September of 2001. He later died on February 2nd, 2002, at Woodland Hills, California from cardiac-pulmonary failure, pneumonia and multiple cerebral infarctions. He was 80.

NOTE: This film came from a widescreen import print in very nice picture quality and is currently the best English language version of this film available anywhere.
