"From The Sublime To The Ridiculous"

I get a particular thrill following up Richard Bensam's fantastic, moving piece (see previous post) for Hey Kids! with these: photos from a nudie film.

These screencaps were sent to me by Hey Kids! contributor Brian Heiler, who tells me: "
These are shots from the 1963 opus Goldilocks and the Three Bares (yeah, I like old-timey naked people movies) and that buldging comic rack gets featured for about five minutes (it's obviously a one-camera shot).

It looked better on my TV but I had to use VHS to catch it, so it lost some resolution, I could see the Batman logo on my TV."

Wow, what a catch, and what a bizarre place to spot some comics as props--a early 60s nudie film?!?

That's an odd-sized comic rack, it looks like it has two racks on two sides, and then one rack on the opposite side. Wherever this was shot, the kids in the area had a lot more comics to choose from than I ever did. (So not only did they have a porno being shot in their neighborhood, but they had Charltons, too!)

I can't make out the Batman logo, but am I crazy to think that I see Archie's Pep Comics six titles down on the left?

It's clearly Pep on my TV.

What's really freaking me out is I just listened to the latest Cinema Diabolique podcast (genre films are covered) and the two films they discussed were the X-rated Alice in Wonderland and this one - Goldilocks.

I wouldn't have guessed this movie would ever be mentioned twice in a year, much less twice in a day. Maybe it's a sign that I should check it out.

Wait, I'm confused. I was in a porn film when I was a baby? And my parents kept the royalty check? That is so typical.

Well I think this kind of situations are not typical as RAB said. In my criteria, this seldom happen and inclusive I won't know what I'll do.
