Adult film ‘Debbie Does Dallas’ caused stir when screened in Times Square in 1979

Published by:

There was nothing like Times Square in the 1970s!The adult film “Debbie Does Dallas,” starring Bambi Woods as Debbie, dressed in a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders’ outfit, caused quite a stir when it was screened in Times Square in February 1979.
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, which had nothing to do with the making of the film, were less than thrilled about the film. They claimed that Debbie “is not a cheerleader and never has been,” and tried to shut down the film for months. As ticket buyers flocked to New York’s Pussycat Theater, they were surprised to find out that a majority of the staff had been arrested.
Eyewitness News reporter Josh Howell arrived at the theater as federal marshals dragged out the management of the complex. The marshals blamed the arrests on the theater’s refusal to stop screening the film.

New York in the mid 1930’s in Color !

Published by:

Extremely interesting long film about New York not long after the Great Depression. This film is in colour, motion-stabilized, enhanced and speed-corrected … It was shot between 1933 and 1939.,,
It shows many images of New York’s buildings (Empire State, Chrysler and Woolworth buildings a.o), Bridges, Aircraft, Neon lights and Steamships. Especially the footage of the famous ocean liners Queen Mary (Cunard White Star Line), which was brand new at that time, and the Normandie and Conte di Savoia footage (in color!) is intriguing.…
Film has NOT been artificially colourized; it is original Kodak (?) color film!
