I don't know about "universally", but yes, he took some flack. It goes against your inane point that Nugent would have been lynched for merely releasing this song in the 50s.

Add Jennifer Connelly to this list. She was only 13 years old showing her arse in a strip tease in Once Upon A Time in America

I mean, surely when The Godfather was being filmed there was still a standard for not having underage girls naked on screen.

Because we're discussing underage nudity in the 1960's and 70's, not slave trade in the 1400's.


I have no idea what the slave trade has to do with anything. But applying modern standards to it is pretty uptight. They did not consider 16-17 year olds “children” in the past like we do today, People would get married at young ages. it was also in Europe where they are not nearly as uptight about nude scenes as the US. There have been other European actresses that did nude scenes at that age into the 90s

There was this Bo Derek T&A movie that used to come on cable when I was a kid. Many years later when IMDB came along, I found out that the young fully nude girl in the movie was 14-year old Olivia d'Abo, who was the big sister on The Wonder Years.

She's an older woman to me, yet through the magic timelessness of cinema, it is now weird.

She was in that too. But "Bolero" is the Bo Derek movie that used to play on 80's and 90's cable.

Pretty Baby was controversial at the time. So were things like the Scorpions Virgin Killer cover. But you could still get away with it. Lots of things started tightening up around then, domestic abuse being another with The Burning Bed. I attribute it to 24 hour TV news getting people more informed and outraged.

Not true...she was 16 when it was released...she was 15 when it was shot. I member...

In the play she was just shy of her 14th birthday.

Leave it to Zeffirelli to go full on authentic.

Brooke Shields was 11 when she did nude scenes and played a child prostitute in Pretty Baby (1978). A lot of people don't even know this movie exists.


I saw Antonio Fargas (Huggy Bear on Starsky and Hutch) at a Jazz game while he was down here filming.

I just rewatched micheal’s Italy storyline on YouTube. Man, she killed it with that wedding dress. Classic dress and veil. At least Michael had a few moments of happiness with her, unlike his miserable marriage with Kay.

Having lived in Italy off and on several times in my life, and having spent much time there since because my wife worked for Finn Mechannica for years ...I can tell you, teenage titties on TV are no big deal in Italy. Late night Italian TV is soft porn anyways.

Yeah speaking with many Europeans, they view our puritanical views on nudity a bit how we judge the middle east's view on nudity.
