Best Hollywood Fake Nickname Ever


1) Sexy innuendo.

2) Bad pun.

3) Topical.

4) Privileges career of minor starlet over thousands of dead civilians in Japan.

A triumph of the press agent's art!

I'll guarantee you that a batch of bible-thumping-do-gooders in the bible belt went ballistic when they saw this piece of pornographic trash in the news paper.

BTW, the caption refers to "solar energy" so I guess Mexafornia was going green way back then already.

Expat--the original article was from LIFE magazine, which of course was the essence of middle-class America.

And yet another issue I've seen features a full frontal picture of a topless 6-year-old Natalie Wood, a shot which would earn you a jail sentence today. magazine "natalie wood"&pg=PA87#v=onepage&q&f;=false

So it goes with changing mores.

Regardless of what Life was I was around in the early 50's and smokin', and drinkin', and dancin' and the wearing of lipstick was till proscribed in many a community across the bible belt! And shocking displays like the one found here would be plenty enough to send everyone to hell on the fast train!

BD--sorry if I deleted one of your posts by accident, in my feverish quest to get rid of spam. It's a manual process here at high-tech WU, prone to mistakes!
