Andrea True Connection  More More More Andrea True (born July 26, 1943, Nashville, Tennessee) is a former adult film star who was also a singer during the disco era. During her heyday as a porn actress, True was hired by a real estate business on the Caribbean island of Jamaica to produce a commercial. During her stay, a political crisis gripped the island and no one was allowed to leave with any money. Not wanting to lose her hard-earned money, True asked her friend, record producer Gregg Diamond to travel to the island and produce a track for her, which she would finance locally. Diamond arrived with a composition in hand, to which True added lyrics. The result of their collaboration was the now disco classic "More, More, More". in 1976 ultimately remixed by producer Tom Moulton, More, More, More became a favorite in discos and nightclubs. It ultimately reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and a full album with the same title soon followed. The single also reached the charts in Great Britain (where it peaked at # 5) and Germany (where it peaked at # 9).

Risque Partridge Family Scenes A few years ago I posted a clip from The Brady Bunch that was seemingly okay when it aired in November 1972, but it has since been deleted from syndicated prints. (The scene involved Bobby and Cindy on their way to their new neighbors' skinny dipping pool party! Alice stops them, thankfully!) Similarly, here are assorted scenes from the fortieth episode of The Partridge Family, titled Home Is Where The Heart Was. It first aired on January 7, 1972. The plot centers around the two youngest Partridge kids deciding to run away from home after being scolded. The first 3-1/2 minutes are benign, but there's absolutely no way a TV network today would approve of the scenes in the following minute. Wow! Nudity and minors looking at porn on The Partridge Family! I must have missed this episode when I was a kid--or maybe it didn't mean anything to me at the time.

Traci Lords Scandal 1986 One of the more salacious scandals of the 1980s involved pornographic movie star Nora Louise Kuzma, better known to skin-flick aficionados as Traci Lords. In July 1986, during a comprehensive federal investigation into the pornography industry, authorities received an anonymous tip: Traci Lords, the hugely popular actress, had just turned 18 years old--meaning her meteoric two-year porn career had begun at the illegal and tender age of 16, perhaps even 15. It was true. Her mother's ex-boyfriend had provided Traci with a fake ID that added more than five years to Lords' age, giving her a November 1962 birthdate instead of May 1968. (Her physical attributes so belied her true age that Lords was also able to illegally obtain a California driver's license and a passport.) Mom's ex arranged some nude modelling gigs for Lords, including photos for Penthouse. Within a short time, Lords was Penthouse's Pet of the Month--an issue that outsold all others in the publication's history. She quickly graduated to hard-core films at a time when the home video market was exploding. Lords appeared in about 80 porn flicks and became enormously popular for her enthusiastic performances. 'I get paid for doing things I like,' Lords told an interviewer. Lords claims she only made 21 films (and earned about $35,000 for her services), but dozens of other movies were created from outtakes and reused footage. According to porn industry insiders, however, Lords was making six movies a month, demanding and getting $1,000 per day from producers (about twice the going rate for hard-core porn actresses at the time). Some sources claim Lords made over $1 million from her XXX-rated movies--and even had video companies give her $10,000 a month and provide her with a furnished apartment and a Mercedes. Before the scandal broke, her movies were outselling her nearest rival's by a 10:1 ratio. One film, 'Traci, I Love You,' was made in Europe a few days after her eighteenth birthday by her own newly formed production company, and is thus the only porno movie of hers that can be legally obtained or viewed in North America. Some of her 'banned' films are still available in Europe where laws and the age of sexual consent vary. (In France, for example, it is illegal for someone under the age of 18 to appear in a pornographic movie, but the film itself is not illegal.) The huge scandal resulted in more stringent age verification for porn participants that still exist today. Because of accusations that producers had lured Lords into the business knowing she was a minor, the entire adult film industry verged on collapse. However, Lords had also fooled the federal government with the same fake I.D. to get a U.S. passport, so prosecution efforts were halted. Suspicion lingers that it was Lords herself who tipped off authorities to her true age in order to increase her fame and eliminate her old films from the marketplace once she began her own production company. Lords, shown here in a 2008 photo, has pursued a career as a 'serious actress' since 1986. She has appeared in various films and TV sitcoms, usually typecast as 'the bad girl.'

Lolita Controversy Vladimir Nabokov's novel Lolita deals with a middle-aged writer's sexual infatuation with a 12-year-old girl. Due to its shocking and risque subject matter, Nabokov was unable to find an American publisher for Lolita after finishing his manuscript in 1953. After four refusals, he finally resorted to Olympia Press in Paris in September 1955. (The photo below shows a copy of a first edition.) Although the first printing of 5,000 copies sold out quickly, there were no substantial reviews. However, at the end of 1955, Graham Greene, in an interview with the Times of London, called Lolita one of the best novels of 1955. This statement provoked a response from London's Sunday Express, whose editor called it 'the filthiest book I have ever read' and 'sheer unrestrained pornography.' British Customs officers were then instructed by a panicked Home Office to seize all copies entering the United Kingdom. In December 1956, the French followed suit and the Minister of the Interior banned Lolita. (The ban lasted for two years.) Its eventual British publication by Weidenfeld and Nicolson caused a scandal that contributed to the end of the political career of one of the publishers, Nigel Nicolson. In contrast, American officials were initially nervous, but the first American edition was issued without problems by G.P. Putnam's Sons in 1958, and was a bestseller--the first book since Gone with the Wind to sell 100,000 copies in the first three weeks of publication. Today Lolita is widely considered to be one of the finest novels of the 20th century. In 1998, it was named the fourth greatest English language novel of the 20th century by the Modern Library.

Elizabeth Ann Roberts 16-year-old Playboy Playmate Elizabeth Ann Roberts, Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for January 1958, looked like a high school student--because she was! Born in August 1941, the pretty 16-year-old showed up for her photo shoot with a note signed by her mother (who actually accompanied Elizabeth!). Mom's note gave the okay for her daughter to pose for Playboy and also attested that Elizabeth was not a minor. Roberts appeared in a pictorial salaciously titled "Schoolmate Playmate." Her elegant but very youthful appearance prompted an investigation. Charges were laid in Chicago against both Playboy impresario Hugh Hefner and Elizabeth's mother for "contributing to the delinquency of a minor." The charge against Hefner was later dropped when it could not be proved that Hefner knew Roberts' real age. Had the case proceeded to court, Hefner was prepared to argue that the girl who posed nude for the famous 1912 painting September Morn was only 15. Roberts later worked as a bunny in Chicago's Playboy Club. There have been at least seven Playboy Playmates of the Month who were under 18 years of age. Almost all appeared before 1967 when previously vague laws pertaining to modelling for art, erotica, and pornography were clarified and tightened. One exception was the spectacularly well endowed Cynthia Myers (Playmate from December 1968): She was only 17 when she posed, but she had turned 18 by the time her photos were published. It took until 1984 for Playboy to officially institute a minimum age of 18 for its models.

Andrea True- Singer of Disco Hit Dies at 68 Andrea True, the disco star who had such hits as 'More More More' and 'What's Your Name, What's Your Number,' died Nov. 7 in a Kingston, N.Y. hospital, the Daily Freeman reports. True, born Andrea Marie Truden, originally planned to become an actress in New York but became a porn star in films such as Deep Throat Part II and Lady on the Couch. True's career in music began when she went to Jamaica to film a commercial in 1975 but was not allowed to leave the country with the money she had earned. Instead of handing over her money, she recorded an early version of her eventual hit "More, More, More" and left Jamaica with the master tape. The song was remixed and released in 1976, becoming one of the iconic songs of the disco era. Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/andrea-true-dead-at-68-20111123#ixzz1gMVzOEHC

The Man Show One of the more over-the-top TV shows to hit the airwaves in recent years was The Man Show. From 1999 to 2004 it was a half-hour program that aired on Comedy Central. It was created in 1999 by its two original co-hosts, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Kimmel had earlier gained a following hosting the offbeat game show Win Ben Stein's Money on the same cable network. The Man Show overtly and proudly celebrated the stereotypical loutish male perspective in a sexually charged, humorous light. The show consisted of a variety of pre-recorded comedy sketches and live in-studio events, usually requiring audience participation. The show tried to touch on all the aspects of alpha-maleness: excessive drinking, the sexualization of women, obsession with sports, and general lack of refinement. Typical of the fare on The Man Show was a recurring segment called Wheel of Destiny in which a lucky participant selected from the studio audience could win one of four desirable prizes (such as an erotic massage from two female porn stars or $10 in cash) or one of four undesirable prizes (such as "Adam pees on your wallet" or having a sumo wrestler sit on your face). Each show routinely ended with a slow-motion video montage of comely females in lingerie jumping on trampolines. Shakespeare it wasn't--but it had its moments. Kimmel and Carolla left The Man Show in 2003. With new co-hosts Joe Rogan and Doug Stanhouse taking over the helm, the show lost much of its luster and lasted just one more season before being cancelled. A total of 114 episodes were made in five seasons. The Man Show's first four seasons are available on DVD.

Vanishing TV Character  - Sticks From Happy Days During the third (1975-76) season of the hugely popular ABC sitcom Happy Days, a black drummer named Sticks appeared in two episodes. Played by John Anthony Bailey, Sticks was the focal point of "Fonzie's New Friend"--an episode about racism in which many people refuse to attend a luau at the Cunningham home when they learn that Sticks and his girlfriend would be present as guests. Sticks appeared in one other episode--"Fonzie the Superstar"--the amusing one in which Fonzie is cajoled into singing with Richie's band as a special attraction. After that second appearance, Sticks just vanished from Happy Days. He didn't vanish from the entertainment industry, however. After his mainstream acting career dried up, Bailey became an actor in pornographic films using the name John Baker. He died of bladder cancer in 1994 at the age of 47.

Vanishing TV Character - Judy Winslow Jaimee Foxworthy played Judy, the youngest of the three Winslow children, on the ABC sitcom Family Matters. At least she did on the first four seasons from 1989 to 1993. When the show's focus started to shift towards oddball neighbor Steve Urkel, Judy's role got progressively smaller. When Foxworthy demanded a pay hike for the fifth season, the producers just dropped her from the show with no explanation. (One fan comically declared Judy was sent to her room in one episode--and never came back.) Judy Winslow thus became a noteworthy victim of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome (named for Richie and Joanie Cunningham's older brother on Happy Days who vanished after a few episodes and was never heard from or referred to again): For the rest of the series' nine-season run, there were several times when the Winslows said they had just two children. As a young adult, Foxworthy suffered from substance-abuse issues. She ended up working in pornographic films for a short time using the name Crave.
