His spiral of debauchery is soon overtaken by madness, and his sex games threaten to harm more than just her social standing and pride... Perhaps the most sadistic and bizarre film in Nikkatsu's lengthy Oniroku Dan/Naomi Tani collaboration, SLAVE WIFE (aka Captured for Sex 3) is a disturbing portrait of a man who’s life as a servant has driven him to revenge and ultimate satisfaction, and the beautiful woman who must endure his perverted wrath. Be warned, the final act is NOT for those who don’t realize how nasty Nikkatsu’s Roman Porno line can get.
Like Ernst Lubitsch, whom he studied, Gosho was an early experimenter in the narrative uses of sound (and silence). Japan’s first “all talkie,” this charming comedy lends itself to a natural use of sound. A playwright is distracted from his work by the din of a jazz band practicing next door. He goes over to complain but is totally disarmed by the lady of the house. The whole film plays on the presence of sound, from blaring horns and crying children to the duets our hero engages in with the neighbor’s wife to the dismay of his own spouse. The film also demonstrates the growing importance of Western influences to the Japanese. American jazz, modern French painting, and Western dress are treated positively, if comically. But nothing quite prepares one for the closing duet of husband and wife singing “My Blue Heaven” on their Sunday outing with the children. Look for Gosho’s signature use of brief, separate shots, another influence from abroad. —BAM/PFA

Megan Wants a Millionaire is an American reality television show on VH1 in which former Rock of Love contestant Megan Hauserman has seventeen wealthy single men compete for her love. The show originated from a comment made by Hauserman during an episode of Rock of Love: Charm School, in which she stated that she ideally would like to become a "trophy wife". During the casting process for the series, VH1 asked for single men with a net worth of over $1,000,000. In February 2009, Hauserman stated in an interview that taping of Megan Wants a Millionaire had begun. Hauserman also stated that she was looking for "a mature guy that can handle me and doesn't cry" and stated "He doesn't have to be rich; he has to be stable." Hauserman said she would take the show seriously, it would be "very real". Megan's best friends, Brandi Cunningham from VH1 shows and Cecille Gahr were to appear on the show and try to help Megan with her decisions. The show premiered on Sunday, August 2, 2009. Broadcast of the program was suspended by VH1 on August 19, 2009, after it was announced that contestant Ryan Jenkins was being sought by police for questioning in connection to the murder of his wife, swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore. On August 23, 2009, Jenkins was found dead, of an apparent suicide, at a motel in Hope, British Columbia, Canada. On August 24, 2009, Megan Wants a Millionaire was officially cancelled by VH1. Early reports after the incident occurred indicated that Jenkins was a finalist in the series. It was later confirmed from a contestant's Twitter that Jenkins had placed third in the competition.
