Bogus Boxing Trash: 8 Parts (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 250 min

Genre: Experimental

"It's silent, sure, but only until you enter the picture. It's so exciting you'll be doing the yelling yourself. All the thrills and chills of the sport of boxing, legalized human butchery as old as time itself. See one and you'll want them all, but you can sample it piece by piece." -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 1 (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 36 min

Genre: Experimental

"All the savage glory of the Olympics, including George Forman's now-famous flag ceremony; two females having at each other (we don't approve of the fairer sex fighting but here it is in all its raw torrid brutality); Sandy Saddler vs. Carlos Ortiz in a battle of ex-champs; George Chuvalo's awesome knockout of Dante Cane; all-time mauler Sonny Liston KO'ing Roger Rischer; Bob Foster's crushing KO of Biafran Dick Tiger; man vs. dog (who will win?) and man vs. woman!" -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 2 (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 35 min

Genre: Experimental

"Oscar Bonavena, mad bull of the Pampas, pits his height advantage and wild ringside antics against the primitive power and cunning of champ Joe Frazier; Sonny Liston clobbers another stiff, his ex-sparring partner Amos 'Big Train' Lincoln, putting him out cold for eight minutes; Rocky Marciano arm wrestles with Andy Granatelli. More excitement than you can shake a stick at." -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 3 (1969) Regular 8mm, color, 36 min

Genre: Experimental

"The much heralded Bob Foster-Frankie DePaula bloodbath at Madison Square Garden, as race is pitted against race and Jersey City seeks its place in the sun beside New York; much of the action is in the stands and the fight itself has a knockdown density of 3 per round! Joe Namath and Sugar Ray Robinson get introduced to the throng at ringside, and Archie Moore makes a guest appearance." -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 4 (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 33 min

Genre: Experimental

"Featuring Keenan Wynn, Shelly Winters, Cagney, and Keye Luke. Boxing is lots of punches, film is lots of frames, here's a fragmentation of both you won't want to miss. If you thought Brakhage was something, you'll laugh up your sleeve at the old gopher when you see this one. There's one patch in full color, it's quick and you'll have to catch it (starring David Roter), and a boxing sequence with Janis Joplin." -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 5 (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 36 min

Genre: Experimental

"See boxing robots knock each other's heads off! Also, violent premarital combat in a suburban cage between spouses-to-be, animals trained to fight other animals to the finish, and a pair of boxers actually talking over the stage at the Cafe Au Go Go! As an added treat, a girl just out of the hospital (hair ball removed from her uterus) boxers her life away." -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 6 (1969) Regular 8mm, color, 39 min

Genre: Experimental

"Slambang action as the one the only Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) throws hits wits and fists against William Buckley in Ali's first film since "Requiem for a Heavyweight." And, for the theatrically inclined, there's James Earl Jones too, in his gutsy portrayal of the late great Jack Johnson, all-time heavyweight great. Your projectionist may be in for a surprise with this one!" -- R.M.

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 7 (1969) Regular 8mm, color, 31 min

Genre: Experimental

"Blazing color and gore with Buster Mathis supplying the grueling pressure and battered, courageous George Chuvalo holding on to the very end, as sporadic interruption by the timekeeper's clock demonstrates its relevance to film as well as boxing" -- R.M. "A spatio-temporal bonanza, rectangles and rectangles, and clocks and time, motion and stoppage, and life and death." -- Marcel Thil

Bogus Boxing Trash: Part 8 (1969) Regular 8mm, color & b/w, 35 min

Genre: Experimental

"The poetry of Jack Dempsey's 18-second demolition job on the gargantuan Fred Fulton. Shadow boxing: the key to fistic prominence. Enough TV ringside action to send you thirstily scurrying for your can of Schlitz. Plus: leather-fisted artsy-fartsy with mirrors!" -- R.M.

Genre: Experimental

"That's the reading age, it's a reading film of film credits from movies shown on TV (there hasn't been a movie in 65 yrs which lived up to the credits which preceded it). Such names are featured as George Raft, Joan Bennett, Lew Ayres (in "Hold 'Em Navy"), Anna Magnini (that Italian hot potato), W.C. Fields (in the one with the talking dog), Robert Young, Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, Dick Powell and Rhonda Fleming. Bela Lugosi is in there somewhere too." -- R.M.

Royal Flush In August, A (1972) Regular 8mm, black and white, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

"James Cagney may be Mr. Spuzz when the camera lights are on him but in the dark he's just another crybaby creep (he's afraid of the dark because he thinks there's a very big donut truck gonna come along and run him over - hit & run! - and the rodents are gonna eat his flesh even though he's not dead yet). A horror film of NOSFERATU proportions." -- R.M.
