Netflix's The White Tiger 'Don’t let this one go under your radar!'

ACCLAIMED DOCUMENTARY "GIRL 27" NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON ITUNES,Amazon, Vudu and Xbox

David Stenn's acclaimed documentary GIRL 27, which uncovers the long suppressed scandal in Hollywood history, is finally available to stream on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu and Xbox.



Produced in 2007 but more timely than ever, GIRL 27 is based on "It Happened One Night..At MGM," a Vanity Fair article also by Stenn. Both unearth the long-buried, still-shocking story of Patricia Douglas, an underage dancer tricked into working a private MGM stag party where, trying to flee, she was brutally raped by a studio salesman. When she sought justice by going public and suing the world's most powerful movie studio -- unprecedented acts in 1937 -- Douglas made nationwide headlines but faced a smear campaign of threats, perjury, and shaming meant to destroy her. The trauma sent Douglas into hiding for the rest of her life; "We had her killed," MGM henchman Eddie Mannix boasted. Though his words weren't literal, their meaning was clear: no woman ever accused MGM of rape again.

Expunged from the historical record (prior to Stenn's painstaking research, googling Douglas or her landmark legal case yielded nothing) this heroic woman would have vanished if not for Jacqueline Onassis, Stenn's editor at Doubleday who encouraged him to pursue the story. Years of detective work followed, culminating with Stenn's amazing discovery of Douglas herself, who granted him the only interview she ever gave. Douglas died in 2003, vindicated at last after seven decades.

GIRL 27 premiered as an official selection in the Sundance Film Festival and was hailed as "compelling" by the Los Angeles Timesand "riveting" by the New York Post. "A dark secret of Hollywood's past in (a) fascinating film," noted film critic and historian Leonard Maltin. "What an amazing story!"

"Patricia Douglas made rape a civil rights issue," says Stenn, "a legal and historic first. She's a pioneer, the Rosa Parks of rape culture."

"Today women are stepping forward to tell their story in numbers; for Patricia, there was no "me, too" -- she was all by herself, the first."

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
