Jennifer Jones Cult of the Damned




‘I’ve made 30 stag films and I’ve never faked an orgasm!’ Before movie legend Jennifer Jones made her final screen appearance in the disaster flick Towering Inferno, she made this disaster. Rock star/cult leader Bogart Peter Styvenson corrupts a fat heiress and her stag actress mother and homosexual father. Like that bad night Tijuana, you hope the ordeal will fade from memory once the vomiting stops. Cruel and malicious, you can’t stop watching as our jaw keeps dropping. Originally titled Angel, Angel Down We Go – the name was changed to capitalize on the still unfolding Manson Murders. Classy! One of my favorite “bad” films of all time.

    40:57 When she was filming this scene, do you suppose Jennifer Jones thought to herself "How did a 1 Oscar(r) in 5 nomination* actress come to this? At least that old dead bastard Louis B. Mayer is turning over in his grave watching the rushes of this picture."

    1:19:50 With almost no dialogue up to this point, I thought "Ok, now Roddy McDowell will have a big speech that reveals the importance of his character and why a fairly big name like him took this (up to now) seemingly measly part." . . . . . Then, 4 or 5 pseudo-profound sentences, and he's returned to being part of the furniture. Lou Rawls had more gravitas in his role.

    Still…James Nicholson and Samuel Arkoff of American International Pict. produced some ot the 60's greatest and coolest films (Wild Angels, Psychout, Riot on Sunset Strip, The Trip, etc.). This picture is bad, so bad that in a strange way…it's way cool.

    The older generation trying to be 'cool' and attract the youth crowd, but failing miserably, both in the movie story and those making the movie.
