ELLIE (1984): In this goofy comedy, a widow marries a wealthy geezer to provide for her sons. Her husband is a cripple and so it is easy for her to engineer his gruesome death and rank him with the rest of her accident-prone late husbands. Unfortunately, the black widow does not count on the intelligence of her vengeful stepdaughter, who starts her own little killing spree.

PREACHERMAN (1971): This randy redneck comedy was a big moneymaker on the Southern drive-in circuit during its original release, and despite the visibly low budget is better constructed than most films of its ilk. Salacious preacher Amos Huxley} (Albert T. Viola) screws around with the wrong sheriff's daughter and winds up beaten in the woods and thrown out of the county. He's taken in by Jud Crabtree, a spiritually hungry moonshiner who desires baptism for his beautiful wayward daughter, Mary Lou (who is afflicted with "an unnatural hankering for menfolk"). Naturally, Huxley stays on, turning Crabtree's still into a fundraising machine for a new church and convincing Mary Lou that her nighttime visitor is actually a celestial being named "Angel Leroy." Conning the simple folk left and right, Huxley inadvertently makes everybody's lives better in between his boozing and lusting. But there's still the sheriff to worry about, and soon the feds are on his tail too. Viola is the whole show here, helming the film from the ground up and then starring as the sinning man of god (though Amos Huxley is billed as appearing "as himself").

HOT SUMMER IN BAREFOOT COUNTY (1974): A country hick turned lawman from the capital goes undercover in Hicksville to bust an undercover bootleggin' operation, run by a tough-talkin' mama and her halter-topped kinfolk. Distracted from his duties as a man of the law, he falls for one of Mama's three daughters and rediscovers his country roots. But what will happen when the local townsfolk and his lady's sisters make a bust of their own?
