Sexploitation - romping through the decades

Sexploitation films have been a core, but often unrecognised, part of the movie industry from the first days of cinema.Sex sells, as they say, and the so called “grindhouse” and backstreet cinemas of the world provided an alternative, racier fare for their customers. The quality of these independently made films was not great, often cobbled together from film clips from other films and documentaries. Advertising was typically exaggerated and, with no print budget, posters were often home-made by the cinema owner. The evolution of this genre provides a fascinating insight into changing social norms of the last century and this month we are showcasing a few of the main themes showing how the genre evolved over the decades.

The silent era of the 1920's had a wealth of scantily dressed women in mainstream cinema but the prurient Hays code of 1930 stopped all that and drove sexploitation underground. The primary subject of the 30's was the fallen woman, ravaged by drink, drugs and wild living. Especially drugs. Another more bizarre preoccupation were the monkey sex movies. Preying on general ignorance, films like Forbidden Adventure and Ingagi showed ritual orgies with gorillas in faraway lands - few people nowadays recognise the symbolic sub text of King Kong but audiences in 1933 saw the shocking love of Kong for Fay Wray in a completely different and far less innocent way.

The 1940's gave us Burlesque as the costumes reduced in size and sex became naughty rather than just shocking.

The 1950's saw the first “nudie cuties” coming to the grindhouse circuit. The British courts decided that films about nudist camps were educational so we suddenly had a lot of films set in nudist camps. What a surprise! Meanwhile, the rise of the teenager in the 1950's, led to the “teenage delinquent” genre in the regular cinemas. This largely continued the fallen women theme of the 1930's, bringing it up to date with tales of promiscuity and teenage angst, as it evolved into mainstream cinema fare.

The 1960's saw the first "roughies" led by Russ Meyer's output, featuring far more violence and overt sexuality. Then, in a key development, legal barriers were broken by the US Supreme Court's 1969 decision to allow a Swedish film, I am Curious Yellow, to feature real sex scenes on educational grounds. This became known as "white coat" cinema - pseudo documentaries with doctors explaining what sex is (as if the audience didn't know). Very soon after this, with all barriers now down, we see what is known as the “golden age of porn” (1969 – 1984) with films like Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas.

The post 1980's world was dominated by technology change with video and the internet effectively rendering grindhouse and porn cinemas obsolete. The end of an era for them, maybe, but sex will always sell.

This month we have films from a cross section of the sexploitation genre. From home-made grindhouse posters, though fallen women, monkey sex, nudie cutie, juvenile delinquent, roughies, white coat and porn.

Sex Maniac (Maniac) Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Sex Maniac (Maniac) 1934 US 40" x 60" Fine on board £3,500
Notes: Unique one-off display piece from the 1940's for Dwain Esper's horror movie, first released in 1934 as Maniac. This poster is a fascinating piece of Americana from the 'grindhouse' cinema circuit that catered to the more risque side of the film business, showing the kind of sexploitation movies that you wouldn't tell your mother you were going to see. In fact, you wouldn't tell anybody you were going which meant that unscrupulous cinema owners could get away with murder. In this case, they deliberately chose images and a tagline to suggest a raunchy plot – the reality was there was no sex and nothing in the least bit titillating but who were you going to complain to? This is far more than just a movie poster, it's a glimpse of a different time and an alternative world. The poster itself is composed of a 40” x 60” poster salvaged from another film, complete with a grossly misleading tagline, onto which is stapled the new film title (Sex Maniac), also misleading, and a selection of pasted on photos with glamorous women to complete the con trick. This poster is featured in Tony Nourmand's book Sexploitation Movie Art and was part of his collection. It's in generally good shape with light overall patina of age, pasted onto board with a tear in the top edge at the top which doesn't affect the overall presentation. It's currently conservation framed with non-refective UV glass.

Assassin of Youth Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Assassin of Youth 1937 US 1 sht - 27"X41" Fine/Near Mint £4,995
Notes: This 1937 exploitation film from director Elmer Clifton details the alleged ill effects of cannabis or "marihuana" on America's youth. Similar to the better known Reefer Madness, the picture represents the exaggerated anti-drug propaganda of the time.  This is a rare one sheet poster from the first release. Like many low budget, low circulation exploitation films, the poster was a hand drawn screen print produced in small numbers rather than printed on a regular machine press. This not only makes it much rarer than other movie posters, the process also gives the design stronger bolder colours. This example is in excellent original condition with no fading and minimal yellowing of the paper. There is a little edge wear at the corners and archival tape repairs to fold separations but these do not detract from the overall presentation and it looks stunning.

Come Play With Me Original Vintage Movie Poster

Notes: This movie was a box office smash in the UK in the late 70s and early 80s starred the late, great British porn star, Mary Millington. A version of the film containing very steamy and explicit sex scenes was actually shot, but it never saw the light of day due to very extensive censorship. It is a fascinating piece of social history, though, and an important part of the Mary Millington legacy. This poster features artwork by Tom Chantrell and is from the film's first release, folded in excellent condition.

Notes: In the 1930's, there was a vogue for gorilla movies (Ingagi, King Kong and many more) and also documentary films featuring far flung jungles and natives. Martin and Osa Johnson were the foremost proponents of this latter genre and Congorilla one of their best films (sub-titled big apes and little people). Promoted in the style of a sexploitation movie, this was actually a genuine documentary, disappointing many of the audience. This poster is from the 1946 re-release.

I am Curious Yellow Original Vintage Movie Poster

I am Curious Yellow 1967 UK quad - 40"x30" Very Good £95
Notes: An important film on many levels, I am Curious Yellow was a Swedish film that will be remembered by many as the first mainstream film in the USA to show sexual intercourse. It was briefly banned in the USA but, in a landmark 1969 Supreme Court ruling, it was deemed not to be obscene because of the 'educational content'. In reality, it was an art house movie, not a a pornographic one, exploring themes of personal growth and sexual awakening in a pseudo documentary style. It gave birth to the 'white coat' genre of sexploitation movies in which a doctor (in a white coat) would provide an educational preamble to the film. After which they take their clothes off and have sex. There was also a companion film - I am Curious Blue - which explored political themes. This is from the first UK release in 1967, folded with tape marks and damage to the corners.

Immoral Mr Teas 1959 US 1 sht - 27"x41" Fine on linen £495
Notes: This is Russ Meyer's debut 1959 feature, a nudie movie typical of similar films of the time. For the brief 61 minutes running time, The Immoral Mr. Teas wanders about his daily business as a dental supplies salesman, ogling improbably-dressed (for the time) receptionists, dental assistants and waitresses without a care that he might get caught (he never does). The lead actor,Bill Teas, was an old Army buddy of Meyer from World War II, and Meyer let him use his own name as the character's name. A rather naïve film with glimpses of the style that would make Meyer famous in later years. Fine on linen with retouching to borders.

Ingagi Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Ingagi 1931 German - 37" x 55" Fine on linen £3,450
Notes: For movie buffs, Ingagi holds a very special place in film history. In the pre-Hays Code days of 1930 it was promoted on the basis that it used real documentary footage of Sir Hubert Winstead's expedition to Africa, including footage of a woman being dragged into the Congo Jungle by a gorilla for sex. In reality, it was made on a Hollywood back lot with stock footage sprinkled throughout, well known Hollywood extras as the Congolese girl and the "Wild Ape", local children were cast as the "pygmies" and the English explorer never existed. When the distributors were threatened with lawsuits, they withdrew the film from mainstream circulation and destroyed all the advertising material. However the ensuing notoriety ensured that it became a massive hit in the underground exploitation circuit generating higher revenues than any mainstream film of that year. So successful was it that a small film studio called RKO decided to make another exploitation movie featuring the love of an ape for a woman - the film was King Kong and RKO went on to become one of the biggest film studios in the world. This is an incredibly rare survivor from the first and only German release in 1931 with artwork by Lapiner. Quite possibly the only one in existence, it is a significant find. It has had light retouching to the folds only and looks spectacular.

Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Nabonga 1944 US 1 sht - 27"x41" Very Good £125
Notes: A WHITE GIRL RULES THE JUNGLE...HER STRENGTH OF POWER WAS "NABONGA!"?..WEIRD LOVES!

He finds the money in the care of beautiful 'white witch' Doreen who was guarded by a huge, ferocious gorilla. This poster is from the film's first release, folded as originally issued to cinemas with some archival tape repairs and minor retouching.

Naked Africa Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Naked Africa 1957 US 1/2 sht - 28"X22" Fine £35
Notes: Although supposedly a 'serious' documentary the filmakers went out of their way to film the weird and wicked safari hunts, manhood initiation ceremonies, hot coal walkers, frenzied religious ceremonies where the participants pierce their bodies and so on. This film so perfectly foreshadowed the 1960's mondo craze that the distributors later retitled and re-released it as "Mondo Africana". This poster is from the film's first release, folded as originally issued to cinemas.
