    Looking at film interpretations of the stories in the Bible - past, present and future, as well as preparation for a future work on Straub/Huillet's Moses und Aron and a few bits and pieces on biblical studies.

    Carnival for the Complainers aka Dr Jim's 'Carnival of Slinky Bible Babes'

    Stirred by his omission from the latest Biblical Studies Carnival Jim Linville of Dr Jim's Thinking Shop has channelled his energies into making his own carnival for the complainers, or a "Carnival of Slinky Bible Babes". Given that I did complain a bit after (though not about) the last Biblical Studies Carnival, and that I also didn't get an entry, I thought this sounded like a good idea. And it turns out that not only did I get a mention (twice!), but also it's all about the female stars of various Bible films.

    This is only part one, so other names will follow, but for starters there are photos of Ulla Bergryd as Eve from the 1966 film The Bible, Pauline Frederick as Potiphar’s wife from circa 1910, Joan Collins in Land of the Pharaohs from 1955, Gina Lolabrigida from Solomon and Sheba, Hedy Lamarr from 1949's Samson and Delilah and Paulette Goddard (among others) from Sins of Jezebel. Great stuff Jim. Suffice to say I'm looking forward to part 2.
