I prefer high class porn as the movie theater floors are less sticky.

I notice when I scroll down to just below the eyes on the I Am Curious

(Yeller) it looks like Joni Mitchell.

Ha ha ha, so it does! "You turn me on/I'm a radio/I'm a country station/I'm a little bit corny/I'm a wildwood flower/Waving for you/Broadcast tower ..."

Ahem.

That depends on what your definition of "Highbrow Porn" is.

Well, just to set the record straight here sewhite, for the most part as I recall, it really wasn't that film series ITSELF(the title being The Story of Film: An Odyssey by Mark Cousins) that was "soundly pummeled" back then, but more the filmmaker's choice in apparently thinking that HE could save a bit of money by performing the narration duties himself!

I think the bigger issue was his use of unrelated stock footage leading people to ask questions like whether the guy ever caught his train.  I seem to recall shots of coffee playing an important part, too.

Well, just a guess here, but IF say Marlene Dietrich or maybe Jean Harlow had been in one of those kind'a movies, would THAT have constituted a case of "Highbrow Porn"???

Get IT?!

"High(penciled-in)brow Porn"???!!!

(...oh never mind...yeah yeah, sorry I brought it up)

 

 

If THAT's the criteria, then CLAUDETTE COLBERT would have to be included.  ;)

anyway, remember.... and considering their content and subject matter;

Both THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and parody flick FLESH GORDON weren't limited to "art-house" showings.

And MIDNIGHT COWBOY('69) was given an "X" rating.

I guess NINE 9 1/2 WEEKS might be considered 'high class porn'.

As much as I hate to admit it, it's a guilty pleasure of mine though. Guess I have a bit of a dirty mind.

What is it about the film that appeals to me... well I do love the soundtrack. And I have to admit, I have recently took a 180 position on her acting abilities (favorably I might add) I did like Kim Basinger in here. And Mickey Rourke was quite a looker in here (this was way before he ruined himself with all that plastic surgery).

Unless I've missed seeing it mentioned earlier here, there's always THIS film which I would think might be the perfect example of CG's thread premise...

It depends too on your definition of porn. For some people naked wimmins is enough for it to be called porn. 😎

How about one unclothed woman kissing or touching another unclothed woman's breast? In that case, Carol would qualify as highbrow porn, in a low-key, softcore way.

Yes, part of the controversy about Mark Cousins' Story of Film was that he preferred showing men in the frontal altogether. Somehow Cousins seemed more like wannabe gay than actually gay, but maybe that was another effect of the Irish accent.

Oh... you two reminded me. Greta Garbo's final screen credit was in a porn film, Peter de Rome's Adam & Yves. However she kept her clothes on and merely had to walk the city street from her apartment without realizing she was being filmed. The rest of the cast was exclusively male but able to perform without her participation.

Gee, Sepiatone, you think I am making it up? Mind you, I am not sure if Garbo's brows would be considered 'high" or "low". They do arch in a unique way.

In any case, the infamous footage resembles Roger Patterson's Sasquatch. We are TOLD it is her.

Vautrin, I must have missed this sequel to "Old Yeller" called "I Am Curious Yeller". 

I'll bet Alan Abel, the man who wrote blogs before they were called blogs, and wanted all animals to wear clothes and cover their nudity, would have protested this violation of that old yeller hound, as Travis [Tommy Kirk] used to call the poor thing before he got the hydrophobia or rabies and was put down.

I've never seen Old Yeller. I'm not that big on dog movies. I remember we had a little coat

for our dog that we put on in winter, but that was a purely practical selection, not a moral

one.

Yep! Could very well HAVE been Garbo, alright!

(...I mean, those DO look like right around size-12 shoes this person is wearing, anyway) ;)

Regarding the Garbo shoe comment, I was also thinking of the famous line in Notting Hill when Julia Roberts comments to Hugh Grant about what "they" say about men with big feet. (Big feet means big shoes.)

I should comment on this with the other thread...

... BUT, this is the thread using the word "pornographic" and I don't feel like starting a new thread for the moderators to supervise.

On YouTube, there is an upload of Pornography: The Secret History Of Civilization that broadcast on Channel 4 in 1999 and is quite explicit in both discussion AND images. Therefore you will need to age verify to watch. Episode 4 is the one relating to this thread, focusing on the dawn of the "blue" movie at the start of the century through the '70s Golden Age when many were trying to elevate it as a form of art. Episode 5 continues into the 1980s and '90s when VHS took over, followed by the rise of the internet in the '90s in episode 6.

Although it does NOT relate to movies, episode 1 is the most interesting. The excavation of Pompeii began mid-18th century and was a gradual and slow process, unlike more modern archeological digs. By the beginning of the Victorian Age, a spectacular effort was made to catalogue everything and instantly hide a ton of artifacts in "secret rooms" at both the Naples and London museums. Part of this was influenced by the French Revolution that happened between the start of the excavation and the all-important transitional period of the 1830s-50s when sex was hidden underground with a vengeance. As episode 2 discusses in detail, sexually explicit material was usually published in late 18th century/early 19th century France for political reasons and England was constantly in a state of panic over a possible revolution resembling its neighbor. Sex = revolution.

The actual word "pornography" entered the Webster dictionary in, I think (since I would have to re-watch), 1857. This was about the same time that the first laws in the U.K. started defining what should be outlawed from public viewing and mail distribution. Amusingly there is a screen shot of the dictionary page in question with an image of a porcupine close by, since the first three letters are the same. What amuses me is that porcupines doing-what-comes-naturally are featured over the end credits of Bill Condon's Kinsey as well as being a continuing joke in Radley Metzger's classic Score. I don't know why, but this rodent keeps popping up in discussions about human sex.

Boogie Nights (1997), directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, is a film about the porn industry, set in the so-called Golden Age of Porn, the 1970s, in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley.  It opened to critical applause. It's worth checking out.
