Karaca Kaan
Karaca Kaan (born Istanbul in 1958) was an erotik film star predominately -- though she did make one conventional film (in 1974) at the beginning of her documented-47-film career and one at the end (in 1982). Note: Kaan's own count of her films differs substantially from the documented count. "I made nearly 200 films, acted the lead role in 60 of them," she says.

    'Kara Murat, Ruler of the Ottoman Seas' -- Murat receives Yunus Paşa's congratulations.

    Plot Summary: In the Ottoman Age of Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror, the Sultan's Admiral is captured by pirates during the Admiral's return from a tax-collecting mission. The Sultan charges Kara Murat with saving the Admiral, his crew, and the booty. On the way to successfully fulfilling his mission, Kara Murat meets the enchanting pirate girl, Maria...
    Plot Details: It's the Ottoman Age of Sultan Mehmed/Mehmet II (aka Mehmet, The Conqueror or Fatih Mehmet or Sultan Fatih) circa 1460... The Sultan (who not only claims domain over Ottoman lands but also the islands of the Aegean Sea) has sent his Fleet Admiral Yunus Paşa (played by Turgut Özatay) on a 'tax collecting' mission to the islands. Having completed his job, Yunus Paşa heads for home, but his ship (now filled to the brim with loot, spoils, and booty for the Sultan) is hijacked and robbed of all its treasure by Kara Korsan (The Black Pirate, played by Peter Fabian) and his men. [The Black Pirate's patron is Prince Nikolas (Kayhan Yıldızoğlu), ruler of the Aegean Island of Chios, who resents paying tribute to Sultan Mehmet -- and who gives Kara Korsan's pirates free reign to pillage and plunder Turkish villages on his island.] When Sultan Mehmet gets the hijack news, he goes ballistic -- and charges Kara Murat (Cüneyt Arkın) with triple tasks to save his Admiral (and crew) from captivity, bring all the booty back, and ease the plight of the Turkish villagers on Chios. In a classic Ottoman ruse, Kara Murat (posing as 'Antonio', a Spanish brigand) lets himself be imprisoned in the same Ottoman prison cell with 4 of the Black Pirate's men, where he gains their trust. After a fake pre-arranged escape with his prisoner-pals, Kara Murat gets them drunk, learns the whereabouts of the Black Pirate's secret location, and returns with the drunkards to the pirate's den. He is challenged at the entrance by Maria (Sevda Karaca), a female pirate with dangerous appeal... (Another pirate, Vargos (Hüseyin Baradan), covets Maria for himself.) Continuing the original ruse, Kara Murat as Antonio is allowed by Kara Korsan to join the band of pirates -- after the 4 freed (and now sober) pirates vouch for him as their saviour. Kara Murat finds Yunus Paşa and his crew enchained -- now galley slaves on one of Kara Korsan's galley ships -- but our hero has to bide his time. Kara Murat proves his mettle in battle when Kara Korsan's single galley routes 3 enemy ships -- and, in the aftermath of the fighting, Maria's love-interest in Murat is seen to blossom. That night at the victory celebration, The Black Pirate takes Kara Murat as his 'right hand man' -- and Maria shows up in a bright red dress in his honor. Vargos can't take any more humiliation, challenges Murat -- and in the sword play that follows Murat makes a fool of Vargos, much to everyone's drunken delight. Murat slips away from the celebration with Maria -- and rows her back to the galley ship, where he declares his love for her. Then, like a true gentleman, he escorts her to her cabin, and leaves her there in a swoon. He's got work to do...He overpowers the single on-duty guard and releases Yunus Paşa and his crew. Together they surprise/capture the drunken Kara Korsan and his crew upon their return to the galley. The tables turned, Kara Korsan and his crew are placed in chains and made to do the rowing of the galley. Maria is torn between her love for Murat and her feeling that she has been deceived by him. And she is unable to kill him (with a hidden knife) when, in private, he embraces her -- and again declares his love. In a state of confused loyalties, she jumps ship, swims to shore, and informs on Murat to Prince Nikolas. Nikolas sends his naval captain (with Maria by his side) in pursuit of Kara Murat in a convoy of 4 galleons. Outnumbered and out-gunned, Murat wants to make a run for it the rest of the way to Istanbul...But Yunus Paşa's Ottoman pride won't permit it. And when Nikolas' convoy easily defeats the single galley... Murat, the Ottoman crew, and Yunus Paşa are all taken prisoner. The Black Pirate and his crew are released -- and on the voyage back to Chios, the pirates take turns torturing Murat. Maria (realizing the error of her ways) allows Kara Murat to escape in the dead of night, but sends him over the side with a curse... "I hate you. Go now -- I never want to see your face again." Vargos, observing this poignant scene from the shadows, runs to Kara Korsan and informs him of Murat's escape and of Maria's part in it. Kara Korsan takes her into custody, tying her to the mast in Murat's place. Meanwhile, Kara Murat makes it to shore after a long swim, finds his way to an Ottoman ally who provides Murat with a team of mercenaries and a ship. They return to Chios and, in the dark of night, they recapture the galley (with Maria still strapped to the mast). They release Maria and Yunus Paşa's crew again, but Yunus Paşa, himself, is not among the prisoners...having been imprisoned again, in the Prince's castle dungeon. Maria leads Kara Murat back to Prince Nikolas' castle where a celebratory ball is underway. Prince Nikolas proclaims The Black Pirate his new 'Fleet Admiral' to loud cheers from guests at the ball. Meanwhile, below floors in the dungeon, Murat and Maria find and release Yunus Paşa again. Murat sends Yunus Paşa and Maria back to the galley to ready it for sailing and await his return. Murat singlehandedly destroys the Prince's fleet in the harbor (by swimming ship to ship and setting off explosives) -- and kills both Vargos (in a pitifully short sword fight) and Kara Korsan (burying him up to his neck in the seaside sand to drown with the incoming tide, in the same manner as Kara Korsan has executed Turkish villagers earlier in the film). In the final scenes, Murat swims out to the waiting galley ship, receives congratulations from Yunus Paşa, and sets sail for Istanbul. Under heavy but ineffective cannon fire from Nikolas's castle, Murat (with Maria at his side), Yunus Paşa, and his crew all escape unscathed in the galley (which somehow transforms into a galleon) into the sunset -- with the booty!

    A prolific Turkish actor of 326 films/movies between 1963 and 2003 -- with two screen writing credits. Began his movie career in 1963 in a production of Hancının Kızı (The Caravansaray Keeper's Daughter aka The Innkeeper's Daughter). After 1963 he acted in upwards of 325 mostly conventional films (though he is well-remembered for his 'erotik' film roles too) -- in large and small roles alike. He died 13 August 2003 at the age of 67. In late career, he found work in TV serials -- the last of which was a starring role in TGRT's production of Kirve. (A 'Kirve' is a kind of godfather at a circumcision ceremony -- who often takes the poor young victim on his lap during the operation, whispering 'encouraging' words until the deed is done.)

  • Sibel Kekilli played the leading-role in Director Fatih Akın's Duvara Karşı (Head-On) which won the Golden Bear Award at the 54th Berlin Film Festival (2004).
  • After the award was announced, it was learned that the 23-year-old had a previous film 'career' at Magma -- a porn film studio. Magma's Managing Director, Klaus Goldberg, explained that Kekilli had learned her acting skills during her 6 film career at Magma -- and it had paid off for her in Duvara Karşı (Head-On) in which she played in several nude scenes. And he added, "Kekilli was often bored during lulls on the set. The only time she perked up was during filming. She took a lot of pleasure in doing her job." Kekilli is seen at left on the front page of the German newspaper, Bild -- which broke the story. When questioned, Kekilli confirmed the truth of the Bild exposè, adding, "But, that's in the past. For me, winning the Golden Bear Award is the most important thing."

    who, according to the ancient but still-extant Anatolian 'honor code', planned a namus cinayeti for her.
    Two-faced Male Viewing-Public... This threat on Kekilli's life was no joke, dear readers -- and, we think what Turkish film historian Cihan Demirci149 had to say on the subject is of much interest...

    On the one hand, we watch Sibel Kekilli's pornographic films like salivating wolves. On the other, we want to bring Kekilli to heel -- to make her pay for her 'sexual deviance'. Even a lot of us want to lynch her. But throughout her death-threat ordeal, Kekilli has held on tightly to her Golden Bear award-winning performance, weathering the storm of her critics. I read Kekilli's interview and she made it clear that, "I didn't naively make these [pornographic] films. I made them quite serious-mindedly. Afterwards, I saved myself from falling into an abyss. I knew what I was doing every step of the way." Demirci continues...Perhaps Kekilli wasn't a pornographic actress at all. Perhaps she was a symbol -- protesting against a [male-dominated Anatolian] 'society' that still turns a blind eye to the rape of its young girls by family members and family friends. A society of brothers, fathers, and uncles who beat them if they don't hide the traces of the rapes...even kills them. All in the name of 'honor'.

For very different reasons, the two main characters are suicidal when the film opens in Hamburg (after a Turkish-musical story-telling prelude performed along the Bosporus).

    Musical Story-telling prelude to 'Duvara Karşi (Head-On) starring Sibel Kekilli and Birol Ünelin -- written and directed by Fatih Akın in 2004.
    Sibel Güner (played by Sibel Kekilli) is the daughter of transplanted Turkish parents from Zonguldak, who insist on imposing old-world ways on the vibrant young woman. When she breaks under the strain and attempts suicide (more than once), she ends up in the same sanitarium as Cahit Tomruk (a Turkish transplant from Mersin played by Birol Ünel). Cahit found his way there after purposely smashing his car at high speed, head-on into a solid cement wall -- in an attempt to kill himself after the loss of his beloved wife and his subsequent descent into alcohol and drug addition...Sibel (Kekilli) sees Cahit (Ünel) for the first time in the psychiatrist's waiting room at the sanitarium, likes what she sees, and immediately begins to focus on marrying him as the means of escaping her oppressive family. But, as she explains to Ünel, there'd be no need for sex between them... the marriage would be completely open, with each partner free to indulge his/her passions outside. At first, he wants no part of Kekilli's 'crazy' ideas, but she persists...They'd be like room-mates, she says, and she'd work to cover all their living expenses. After several days, she persuades him to jump the sanitarium wall to join her for a late night beer in a local bar. She proposes marriage again, but he refuses again -- and in an explosion of despair, she smashes his beer bottle and slashes her wrist right there on the spot. That desperate act sets in motion a gradual change of heart in Ünel -- and, after a fake courtship to satisfy her family's conservative ways, the couple 'settle in' to a very unorthodox marriage. Slowly, Ünel begins to appreciate Kekilli's company (and vice versa). But 'a deal is a deal' and they each go separate ways in satisfying carnal needs. Then one night, Kekilli entices Ünel to join her for a boogie. In this film clip (a 2.4 MB Windows Media Video [.WMV] file), Kekilli begins by playfully teasing and taunting Ünel about her good looks and nice body. Then, jump-dancing and chanting 'Punk Is Not Dead!' in unison to the infectious beat of Temple of Love (by Sisters of Mercy Touched by the Hands of Ofra Haza),

    getting started

    Neriman Köksal, Turkish movie actress in her prime of life.
    Especially during the 1960s and '70s, Neriman Köksal was one of Yeşilcam's notorious group of 'Bad Girls' which also included: Mine Soley, Aliye Rona, Suzan Avcı, and Sevda Ferdağ.
    Köksal began her film career as the Russian princess Nina in Çete (The Gang) in 1950. She was steadily employed thereafter in movies and, later, on TV... for the next 45 years.
    Köksal was known by the nickname 'Fosforlu' because of her hugely successful portrayal of Fosforlu Cevriye Necla (Phosphorescent Cevriye Necla) in the film Fosforlu Cevriye (The Phosphorescent Cevriye). [Note: Cevriye and Necla are both female Turkish personal names.] That film spawned two sequels starring the same lead actors -- which were also written and directed by Aydın Arakon...Kıtıpiyoz'a Tuzak / Fosforlu'nun Oyunu (Kitipiyoz's Trap / The Phosphorescent One's Game - 1959) and Fosforlu Oyuna Gelmez (You Can't Fool The Phosphorescent One - 1962) -- the latter film in which 20-year-old Fatma Girik appeared. Tanju Gürsu also appeared in the latter film... and he undoubtedly 'took notes' on lead actor Orhan Girşaray's performance, because 8 years later Gürsu starred in the remake of Fosforlu Cevriye (with its slightly different name [Fosforlu Cevriyem] and plot) -- surplanting Girşaray in the role of Kıtıbiyoz Çetin (Good-for-nothing Çetin).

    Neriman Köksal's Filmography:
    Conventional Films --
  • Fosforlu Cevriye (Phosphorescent Cevriye)...starring Neriman Köksal (as pistol-packin' Fosforlu Cevriye Necla), Orhan Günşiray (as Kitibiyoz Çetin), and Şukran Sabuncu (as wicked stepmother Nüveyre) written and directed by Aydın Arakon in 1959.
    Plot Summary:
    Neriman Köksal is
    Fosforlu Cevriye

    Neriman Köksal establishes a new genre of Turkish film in 'Fosforlu Cevriye' (The Phosphorescent Cevriye).
    Necla (Neriman Köksal) lives on her family's farm together with her father, her stepmother, and younger sister Perihan. (Necla is known as Fosforlu Cevriye by the farmhands because she can handle guns and knives as well as any man.) The stepmother, Nüveyre (Şukran Sabuncu), does her best to make the sisters' lives miserable. When Nüveyre forces young Perihan's engagement to a man she doesn't love, Perihan turns to drink -- becoming an alcoholic. Necla's growing hate for her stepmother drives her to be increasingly suspicious of Nüveyre's actions. Then one night, the father is killed in Perihan's room under mysterious circumstances -- and Perihan is blamed for it. To save drunken and distraught sister Perihan, Fosforlu Cevriye confesses to the crime -- but on the way to the jailhouse by police boat, the boat's motor conks out. Fosforlu Cevriye seizes the chance (while displaying her ample bosom) to escape by jumping overboard and swiming to shore. As she flees through the streets of town with police in hot pursuit, she stumbles upon Kıtıpiyoz Çetin (Good-for-Nothing Çetin played by Orhan Günşiray) [as you'll see in this film-clip, a 1.9MB Windows Media Video (.WMV) file]... and joins forces with him to track down the real killer. Note1: Fosforlu Cevriye established a new genre of Turkish films, in which lead female actors took on roles as heroic tough-talking she-males. The 'manly woman' image that Köksal created with Fosforlu Cevriye set the standard -- and in the following years other female actors (eg. Fatma Girik, Müjde Ar, Nebahat Çehre, and even Bülent Ersoy after her sex change) followed in her footsteps with great success. Note2: In 1969, there was a highly successful remake of the film with the slightly different title of Fosforlu Cevriyem, which starred Türkan Şoray in the title role, Tanju Gürsu (as Kıtıbiyoz Çetin), and Suzan Avcı (as the wicked stepmother Nüveyre), directed by Nejat Saydam.
