exposed breasts in 1936!


wow, when i read the back cover and it said "contains nudity", i assumed that meant somebody partially exposed their stomach or something. i was surprised to find out that several girls go skinny dipping and there are several ass shots as well as a quick view of chests. plus, some dude tries to feel his girlfriend up in the backseat of his car. this mustve been hardcore porn back in the day man

That's what kind of trouble one gets in when they get "hooked"... ;)

Hey Ugly Bugly! Did Adolf Zitler launch a Zitskrieg across your face?

I know! It was amazing they showed this in such an old movie. I like that it actually showed them having fun, too.

Yeah it IS surprising but remember--this was made independently and only shown at "adult" movie houses. No way a real studio would do this! Also back before the Hays Code came into effect there was some pretty risque scenes in major Hollywood movies. The original silent version of "Ben-Hur" has a nude man strapped to a wall (back shot only) and some topless women, throwing flower petals, precede Ben-Hur when he enters a city. It was so casually treated though u barely notice.

You do realize that nudity on film is nothing new, right? "this mustve been hardcore porn back in the day man"? Are you serious? They HAD hardcore porn back in the day.

reply

Ah yes, featuring hot... ankles.

I was restoring a Victorian house, and in a narrow space behind a cabinet I found a book of pornographic photographs from the 1890s (the publication year was on the title page). There were full-frontal photos of completely naked women and men, men with erections, men and women having intercourse, and women giving men blow jobs.

Likely worth hundreds if in very good condition.

Probably more in European films back then you would see more nudity. Hedy Lamarr was nude in a film called Ecstasy which was made in 1933. But that was treated more as an art film than a cheapy sexploitaion film

Before the ratings board came along, nudity wasn't unheard of in movies. After ratings all sorts of "unsavory" activities were censored.

The original, B&W silent version of Joan Of Arc showed a close up of a bare breast and seemed it was no big deal. Of course, the lady had just finished nursing her baby.

Think the movie was risque? Have a look at the trailer.

Question is, did they intend to "prime the pump" with this trailer figuring to put the most revealing stuff in there to get people into the theater? Or was that footage originally in the movie and had been cut out over the years?

There was alreday nudity way before, like in Metropolis or Intolerance (1916).
