While going over the celebrity birthday post of wet t - shirt queen Leslie Easterbrook I realized that Becky Mullen, who I mentioned in that post and the one about Janet Jones Gretzky , celebrates her 52nd birthday Today which puts her in line with other famous people that were born on that day like Henry Ford, Emily Bronte, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vivica A Fox, Simon Baker, Hilary Swank, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Bush, Paul Anka, Jean Reno, Jürgen Klinsmann, Monique Gabrielle and me.
I´d like to do posts on all of them but I haven´t got the time so since I had to cut Becky Mullen´s part from the aforementioned posts because they were just overloaded with GIFs we´ll concentrate on Becky in this post. Becky is best known for three things, the first one starring in the Andy Sidaris movie HARD HUNTED as the bikini clad ( and sometimes topless ) assistant to radio DJ and sextherapist ( in the movie as well as in real life ) Ava Cadell who really should have been on television.
But don´t ask me what happens in that movie because they all blend into one movie for me. Becky only appeared in that one Andy Sidaris movie - maybe because she had other obligations - and was replaced by Sandra Wild who was better known to european audiences as one of the more voluptuos girls who took off their clothes on the show TUTTI FRUTTI .
I have already done it in my post about ITALIAN SOCCER MOM SIMONA VENTURA but for the benefit of new readers who might have missed this I should probably explain what TUTTI FRUTTI was. There was a show called COLPO GROSSO from Italy with some dancers dressed as certain fruits who would dance to a special song and when the last refrain said " chin chin " they popped their tops and the candidates had to bet ( before they opened their tops ) if they had stickers of fruits on their breasts or not.
If they had fruits - or rather stickers with fruits - on them the candidates would win points and if they had enough of them they could get the women who presented the european nations to strip. Who could get the most women the most naked was the winner and the points they would score were called country points or Länderpunkte, a word that has become a household expression in Germany. It´s not unusual to hear german tv viewers say : Well, we´re not going to see any Länderpunkte in this movie. Anyway, the show was done to promote the Ecu, the new currency for a United Europe ( no, that really didn´t work out that well ) but the important part was getting to see girls strip. Although the men always couldn´t remember which girl represented which country and so often the hottest looking girls never got their turn. This one was my favorite.
The show was adapted by various countries and it was called AY QUE CALOR in Spain and TUTTI FRUTTI in Germany. In Germany it was the show nobody watched ( or admitted watching ) but everybody saw.
When it was first shown in the 80s I was doing my military service in Munich and in my room there was cable tv - unlike at home. So every Sunday afternoon I took the ICE to Munich, bought some american comics at the station, went to the
barracks, showered, shaved and watched TUTTI FRUTTI before going to sleep. And I always made sure to catch the beginning, I didn´t want to miss the big breasted hottie from the intro.
Boy, she was something else. I had some happy dreams back then.
In Germany the show was hosted by Hugo Egon Balder, Tiziana and Monique Sluyter, who may be responsible for my fixation on Power Girl.
I mean it must have been around the same time when I read Bart Sear´s version of Power Girl in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE EUROPE and when I saw Monique´s raunchy striptease as Marilyn Monroe on TUTTI FRUTTI.
For more on Monique Sluyter and Andy Sidaris I already wrote about that at length in my JLA movie casting : Andy Sidaris special post and I did another long post about Unsung 80s direct to video icon Andy Sidaris .
The second thing Becky Mullen is known for - and this is probably where most people remember her from - is being on an episode of MARRIED WITH CHILDREN with sexbomb Pamela Anderson in white lingerie.
It´s the episode where Al is having these dream sequences with first Becky, then with Pamela and then with both fighting over him but each time it´s about to get interesting Kelly - of course - wakes him up.
I really can´t decide who´s hotter in the episode, Pamela or Becky. I mean Pamela is Pamela, my very first candidate for the SEARCH FOR POWER GIRL series but Becky is nobody you would throw out of bed either. The scene when she takes off the business suit is just extremely sexy. WOW !
Becky appeared in a few erotic movies like SINFUL INTRIGUE, which is extremely difficult to find because there seem to be at least ten movies with this name and you want to get the right one. In the movie she´s a hot babe who gets taken advantage of by her bad boyfriend who makes her do some hardcore stuff which she´s not comfortable with.
Basically he treats her like a prostitute which is not okay. Even if she has the measurements to be the centerfold of a certain publication for men I already mentioned twice in this post you should treat her with respect. But her husband is not even trying, I mean no flowers, no presents, no nice dinner, just " Slut up, wife ! " and then it´s " Wham, bang, not even Thank you, Ma´am ! " What a dork. On top of that he cheats on her with every other woman he comes across like his nymphomanic hasian porn masseuse Mai - Ling ( really, like there are no other names for asian women, but that´s Hollywood for you ) played by ultrahot Chona Jason, who gives him a special massage - one of the best scenes of the movie.
Oh, there is one decent guy in the movie who has the hots for Becky Mullen - her neighbour - but of course she keeps him at a distance and only does it with him out of pity when he´s ill. Just like in real life.
The guy who treats her like a prostitute gets to do her every which way day in and day out the whole year while the nice guy finishes last.
There´s some kind of murder story involved but the important thing is that Becky Mullen gets to strut her stuff and wears some kinky outfits. If you have a chance you should watch the movie, it´s quite entertaining and the story doesn´t distract too much from the erotic parts of it.
Now, all of this might not be interesting but the reason why I´m even mentioning it at all is that besides having parts on almost every tv show from RENEGADE to CYBIL to MADtv to PACIFIC BLUE to HUDSON STREET to HIGH TIDE to BLACK SCORPION and appearing in Andy Sidaris´ HARD HUNTED movie she also played the part of Sally, the Farmer´s Daughter.
Not on Playboy Late Night or in an erotic movie but on the first season of GLOW, Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling one of the few shows with female wrestlers shown on german tv. At that time as a wrestling fan you took what you could get and I´m not sure if the show was really that serious.
Although there was this one episode where one of the female wrestlers had an accident and sprained or dislocated her elbow and they kept repeating that footage over and over during the show. Which was really freaking me out. There were some weird characters on the show and I remember having a thing for Palestina who had quite a big rack.
This is the clip with the best quality I could find on YouTube where she goes up against Olympia. Man, I totally forgot that she never wore a bra.
There were other hot wrestlers on the show but the woman that made the biggest impact in wrestling outside of GLOW was Lisa Moretti who played Tina Ferrari. Lisa went on to wrestle for the WWF / WWE as Ivory and hold the WWF Women's Championship three times. Ah, good times.
I think GLOW aired around the time when the legendary CATCH UP show was on RTL presented by Joe Williams and Horst Brack der Bestrafer ( Horst Brack the Punisher, obviously named after the MARVEL character ).
While the wrestling matches ( NWA, CWA and WCW ) were interesting the best parts were the banter between straight man Joe Williams and heel Horst Brack. And of course the highlights of the shows was the interview section BRACK´s PRANGER ( Brack´s pillory ) where Horst Brack either buttered up his guests or trashed them depending on whether he liked them or not. But Horst Brack wasn´t just like most people all talk and even participated in a few wrestling matches. I tried to find the legendary fight against Rene Lassartesse but the only video I could find was this one with a tag team match between Horst Brack & Rolo Brazil vs Rene Lasartesse & Indio Guajaro.
Horst Brack a.k.a. Rochus Hahn a.k.a. Robi is also a prolific comic writer who wrote such german cult comics like MENSCHENBLUT, DR. DIPPERZ ( the german version of Dr. House only this one really IS insane ), HORST, LUNA, ARSINOE or ALRAUNE. One of THE coolest guys in german comics.
I remember that every time at the INTERNATIONALER COMIC SALON ERLANGEN he was nominated for best writer or best comic with his newest publication from SCHWARZER TURM and most of the times won.
Once again, time to wrap things up since I have been writing waay too long on this post already. But as usual here are the shownotes with the websites without making this post would have been pretty difficult :
becky mullen imdb / glow wiki / glow article ( lot of background info )
name the glow girls from season one quiz / catch up fansite
catch up wiki / horst brack facebook / rochus hahn wiki
So happy anniversary to Becky Mullen, a woman of quite many talents.
Our first video is a compilation of all the hot women that have appeared on MARRIED WITH CHILDREN like Becky Mullen, Pamela Anderson or porn star Traci Lords. This is something I can look forward to now that I have gotten the complete series on DVD at a real bargain price at amazon.
Here´s another video from GLOW, this one is Becky Mullen as the Farner´s Daughter going up against the as usual braless wonder Palestina.
Since I couldn´t post a video of TUTTI FRUTTI because of the nudity here is an entire episode of CATCH UP with Horst Brack and Joe Williams featuring - among others - " the total package " Lex Luger, Flying Brian Pillman, Midnight Express and Doctor Death and the Road Warriors.
I had put a video of Brack´s Pranger in the original post which has since then been deleted so here is a new one featuring german actor Martin Semmelrogge who once was on a book signing tour with Neil Gaiman who in turn wrote a few poems with the name Martin Semmelrogge in them.
We close the post with one of the biggest names in lucha libre Santo, el enmascarado de plata. I already posted one of his movies which run the full gamut from horror to crime to comedy. Here is another one from the horror section EL SANTO Y BLUE DEVIL VERSUS DRACULA Y EL HOMBRE LOBO. I love it when he goes up against classic horror monster especially because some of their names appear in the credits like Franqestein.
