Nigel Dennis publishes a scandal magazine. But for each story he writes, he first approaches the person whose scandalous behavior is described (or rather implied, to avoid any libel suit) and says he will suppress the story in return for money. Several of his victims first decide individually to kill him instead of paying, but fail in amusing ways. Then they find that to protect their various secrets they must now join forces for a rather different purpose...

Two friends, both named Frank, accidentally obtain a suitcase at the airport. It contains incriminating evidence against a mafia boss, who sends his Terminator-like lackie to find them.

Lucian Freud, the controversial grandson of Sigmund Freud, has been called one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. His extraordinary portraits - of children, lovers, gangsters, supermodels, even the Queen of England - pushed the boundaries of art and broke world records at auction. They also enraged sitters and ended friendships. The royal photographer for The Times of London was so incensed by Freud's picture of the Queen that he said Freud should be thrown from the Tower of London. Freud, who died last summer, was notoriously elusive. Shortly before his death, however, he gave his full backing to this documentary. The film includes the only known footage of him painting on what turned out to be the last day he ever worked.
Film starring Leland L. Jones, Diondre Cheatam, Neal R. Hazard, Ray Culpepper

From Mark Easter, comes this compelling look at the long debated events in Roswell, NM, in July 1947. The program contains interviews with experts Stanton Friedman, a nuclear physicist and UFO researcher, and George Fawcett, ufologist. Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr. tells of when he held, in his own hands, debris from the Foster Ranch, and Walter Haut, Public Information Officer for the 509th Bomb Unit at Roswell Army Airfield in 1947, recalls typing the press release: "The RAAF captures flying saucer." There is also an interview with Glenn Dennis, a mortician at the Ballard Funeral Home in Roswell, in 1947. The Base Hospital called him requesting child-sized coffins, and inquired about preserving bodies that were in the desert heat for several days. You'll be able to decide for yourself if it was really, as the U.S. Government claims, just a weather balloon. ~ Madeline Cavalieri, Rovi
