I haven't been happy with the over-all quality of my posts from the last 2 weeks. The double whammy of a dead harddrive and my family's major holiday has put me under a bit of a time crunch. I've been going to the well of my archive clips more than I'd like. I've got a number of special projects that are only a few hours from completion, but finding those hours has been a challenge. The road ahead looks clear and I hope to clear my back-log of partially done clips, some of which are pretty tasty indeed.

After my post Emmanuelle Béart in Musketeer Boots my good friend JA left a comment about Ms Beart and the boots she wore in 8 Women (2002). He included the quote below-
If you think I can read something like that and not immediately investigate.....The boots are not as high as I might like, but they are outstanding examples of the type and we are treated to some excellent views. The reviewer mis-remembered the scene order slightly, as the boot reveal is before, not after, the song. I will say that her transition from prim, submissive maid to sexpot is effective and stunning."Costume designer Pascaline Chavanne recalled that after Emmanuelle Béart was on the set and dressed in her maid outfit the actress requested taller boots to wear. After Béart’s character reveals that she had been the mistress of the murdered man, she stands in front of a gaudy painting of a younger version of Denevue’s character sings her song “Pile ou face” (heads or tails). In the process, she loosens her maid’s apron and undoes a few buttons. After the song she sits down and puts her feet up, revealing her very high leather boots, symbolic of her sexuality, which had been hidden to the other women."

As part of my special interest in "tucked into boots" I present these scenes from Carousella (1966)

From the short-lived Fox cop comedy, The Good Guys (S01E15) Monet Mazur goes the leather clad assassin route and tries to kill the spawn of Hanks. Nice touch cutting it to Dirty Deeds by AC/DC.
Sorry no youtube
From TNA Impact 12/09/2010. Two women in fashion boots go at it. Fingers don't want to type tonight.
Giving a year old youtube clip the full blog treatment (didn't mean too, this clip didn't get put in the "done" folder and I re-uploaded it forgetting I had done it once before-been a very spacy day).
From The 4 Musketeers (2005) AKA D'Artagnan et les trois mousquetaires. Decent cavalier boots with the fighting and the jumping and the stabbing. Some REALLY cheesy wire-work stunts (and probably some stunt boots as well).
