I'm addicted to vintage theater lobby cards, especially the campy/cheesy ones. Since I can't buy them all (or at least that's what my partners tell me), I have to get my fix by blogging them. "Private Property" is a sound artsy step above my usual cheese-a-paloozas but the "moral trespass" put a twinkle in my eye.

Wow, Gloria, you find such interesting artifacts of our cultural history. :)

An advertising tagline for this film was:
And the Man Who Owned Her Didn't Even Know She Was a "TWITCH"!
(whatever THAT means)

I'm surprised to see that this film actually had an international release, and was banned in Finland.

Finland had a twitch problem at the time.


Thanks, Lynn :) Nothing makes me happier than finding some hidden piece of sexual history or looking at funky vintage stuff through a modern lens. Lobby cards, pulp novel covers, movie posters -- IOW all the old disposable art -- speak volumes about public perceptions of sex. Sometimes they tell a truer story than textbooks. I wish it could all be preserved.
