After his ship crashes in Smallville, a childless couple, Jonathan and Martha Kent, adopt Kal-El but soon realize that their son, now called Clark, is not like other children as he can run faster than a moving train and had the strength to lift a truck up one-handed at five.

He enters to learn about his origins and leaves with his powers fully developed and a dedication to become a savior of his adopted planet.

    Released 1976
    Director Roman Polanski casts himself in the lead of the psychological thriller The Tenant. Trelkovsky (Polanski) rents an apartment in a spooky old residential building, where his neighbors ? mostly old recluses ? eye him with suspicious contempt. Upon discovering that the apartment's previous tenant, a beautiful young woman, jumped from the window in a suicide attempt, Trelkovsky begins obsessing over the dead woman. Growing increasingly paranoid, Trelkovsky convinces himself that his neighbors plan to kill him. He even comes to the conclusion that Stella (Isabel Adjani), the woman he has fallen in love with, is in on the "plot." Ultimately, Polanski assumes the identity of the suicide victim ? and inherits her self-destructive urges. Some critics found the movie tedious and overdone; others compared it to Polanski's early breakthrough, Repulsion. The film was based on Le Locataire Chimerique, a novel by Roland Topor.moreless

    Are You Being Served?

    Are You Being Served?

    Follow
    Released 1977
    Are You Being Served? is a British sitcom originally airing on the BBC network from 1972 to 1985 created by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft. The show centered around an ensemble cast of characters working in the fictional Grace Brothers department store in London. The characters were of different walks of life, yet all worked in the same store (albeit in different capacities). The show mostly focused on the characters Mr. Wilberforce Claybourne Humphries (John Inman), Captain Stephen Peacock (Frank Thornton), Mrs. Betty Slocombe (Mollie Sugden), and her assistant Miss Shirley Brahams (Wendy Richard). One defining characteristic of the show was the use of sexual innuendo. For example Mrs. Slocombe would often refer to her cat which she always referred to as her "pussy". More running jokes were the effeminate nature of Mr. Humprhies (Inman), and the occasional breaking of the fourth wall. The show often made light of the long-rooted class structure in England, usually undercutting the seriousness of those working in more well respected positions. Running for 12 years, Are You Being Served? is one of the most influential sitcoms in the history of England. It spawned a film, and a sequel series entitled Grace and Favour (or Are You Being Served? Again!).moreless

    Released 1972
    The Pigkeeper's Daughter is a 1972 softcore sexploitation film that includes a comedy plot. Moonbeam (Terry Gibson) is the title character. She is completely bored with country life and spends time having liaisons with local boys. Mrs. Molly Swyner's (Gina Paluzzi) goal, and the plot of the film, is to marry off Moonbeam because, after all, Moonbeam has reached the ripe old age of nineteen. There is some competition between Moonbeam and her mother to catch the attention of a new-to-town traveling salesman. He does indeed have sex with Moonbeam, but not before having sex with her mother first. Gibson's role in the film is very simple, to be the country courtesan. In addition to the scenes in which Molly and Moonbeam compete for the attentions of the same man, the film includes many other sex scenes, such as a fifteen year-old hitchhiker and a local Lothario named Jasper each having sex with Moonbeam. One subplot of interest is that the traveling salesman often sings a song about how country people are easily duped of their money. It is he, however, who loses his money to the teen hitchhiker and to Moonbeam and her mother. The film isn't known for its artfully crafted script, but audiences enjoy it because it is lighthearted and amusing.moreless
