Revenge of 3-D: Sexploitation posters


When I was a kid, my parents got me this book called AMAZING 3-D that was, well, amazing. It came with its own glasses and had plenty of stuff that popped off the page at you. The biggest eye-grabber, however, was a poster for the Jane Russell feature THE FRENCH LINE (1953; pictured right). "How could this not be the greatest film ever made?" thought my developing brain. Indeed, you can bet your bottom dollar that when the 3-D process was first hit it big that enterprising producers knew the best thing to get on film were naked folks. Makes you wonder how in the world Jayne Mansfield or Russ Meyer never made a 3-D film. Perhaps they knew it cause the end of humanity as we know it?

Enjoy a collection of colorful 3-D skin flicks that no doubt gave new meaning to the term comin' at ya! Much like our earlier PRISON GIRLS (1972) and WILDCAT WOMEN (1975) reviews, we hope to review them all down the line

And just so you don't think we are 3-D sexploitation snobs, we would be remiss if we didn't mention one of the 3-D sex genres pioneering titles in HEAVY EQUIPMENT (1977). This was made by Tom DiSimone, who previously gave us the softcore 3-D PRISON GIRLS. This is not only one of the first gay themed 3-D films but it is also considered a classic of the genre. More importantly, according to the book FLESHPOT, it is the only 3-D film to feature a "flying winged dildo." Ah, to have been a fly on the wall in a theater when that went down!
