This Valentine's Day we bring you a story containing one part vixen, one part teen sex slave and garnish it with some Grade A Crazy - listen to Bat Man now! Dolly and Otto's story inspired two movies, the first was The Bliss Of Mrs. Blossom, starring Shirley Mac Laine and a favorite here at The Cabinet, Patricia Routledge. The second film was Man In The Attic, starring Neil Patrick Harris. Oh My. Yes, it's as hilarious as it seems. You really should watch the trailer.

And the wind of the mountain pass howled about her triumphantly, as if in answer...as the children fled.
