SEXPLOITATION FILM STILLS COLLECTION Collection of over 300 stills from #135254
Sexploitation film stills collection (Collection of over 300 stills from 95 films). Description: Collection of 311 vintage still photographs from 95 sexploitation films released between 1941 and 1981, comprised predominantly of black and white studio photographs but with some color or reference photos. Sexploitation films in the mid-century featured female stars in sexually charged roles, as lesbians, stewardesses, nurses, prostitutes, virgins, teens, inmates, rollergirls, bikers, beachgoers, cheaters, curious aliens, Scandanavians, submissives, beatniks, junkies, and just about any other marketable context. The genre hit its peak in the 1960s but was by no means limited to that decade. Differing attitudes towards sex in the United States, Europe, Central America, and Asia resulted in a wide variety of content, perspective, and subtext. The collection offered here features a diverse international range of films made in Sweden, France, West Germany, Japan, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, Mexico, and elsewhere. The collection runs the gamut of the genre, from its relatively innocent beginnings to a high point of creative content by the 1970s. As an example, "They Wear No Clothes" (1941), simply explores life in a nudist colony, whereas by the 1970s titles such as "Girls at the Gynecologist, " "Naughty Stewardesses, " "Truck Stop Women, " and "Erotica" are more imaginative, explicit, and subversive.
Stills largely approximately 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Very Good plus to about Fine condition. Subject: Adult Film, Exploitation Film, Film Still Photographs, LGBT Interest.
