16 STAG MOVIES

PEEPING TOM'S PARADISE (flash fiction)

It was the night of my bachelor party, and my dad Nick reminded me that fate has a
way of fucking with you when you least expect it.

"Take it easy," he said. "You remember what happened to me. My stag party was a disaster."

I smirked in that way of letting him know that bachelor parties were different now. Plus we didn't
call them stag parties any more. What was with that?

Oh sure, guys still may get together and act like primates with all sorts of dick measuring, but I've
never been to a bachelor party that felt... dirty. In fact, I've been to some groom send-offs that
felt more like glorified man dates. They were almost gay. There was the five-course meal at the
four-star racetrack bistro; the serene boat ride along the lagoon with microbrews and cognac; and
then there was the chalet rental skiing the Vermont mountains with five of my best friends.

Flaming redheads with big bosoms didn't jump out of a cakes anymore and for the most part,
none of us ever came home with lipstick on our collar. And if a go-go bar fell into the equation,
believe me, it was such a buzzkill once the overpriced drinks and steep cover were factored in.
Lets face it, I can see a girl shake her ass in a thong on MTV. I don't need my bachelor party for

that.

In Nick's day, though, there was no Music Television and the hottest it usually got was seeing an
outline of a possible nipple through Annette Funicello's bikini top in whatever "Beach Blanket" film
she was starring in. Well, that and the pygmees in National Geographic. Proof positive as to why
stag parties were an event.

***

When it was time to bid farewell to Nick's single life, his buddies spared no expense. The
beer would be Löwenbräu. The music Charlie Parker and the premium hooch would be Canadian
Club. Dad's half wit cousin Noodle said that he would supply the entertainment in the form of a
little black and white gem called "Peeping Tom's Paradise." Dad told me that all night Noodle
bragged to the guys that he had to order the nudie flick from a tiny store in Chinatown.

"In the back room," Noodle would boast as of that actually meant something.

The tradeoff to such stag party riches? The guys couldn't afford a hall so again, cousin Noodle
(thinking he was using his) convinced Nick to ask my grandmother if it was okay to have their
small soirée out back in the garage. She said that as long as they kept it down and none of the
boys got rambunctious, it should be fine.

***

And so it came. Dad's big night started out just like thousands of other stag parties of the
day. Cigars were smoked over sports scores and 10 pizzas were on there way be there just in
time for Noodle's Betty Blue film.

Beforehand, though, Nick got a few presents and was even shocked that Noodle gave him a
wallet. Nick wondered what Woolworth's he stole it from and after examining it, jammed the
billfold into his back pocket.

By the time the natives were on their second slice, it was clear that Cousin Noodle didn't know a
good goddamn about loading an 8 mm projector. After some razzing and propping the projector
on my grandfather's old workbench, the guys were in for their treat.

As "Peeping Tom's Paradise" flickered to life on a dirty bedsheet perched along the garage door,
mouths were agape.

"Man, is she built like a brick shithouse," Noodle said to the gang, many of them agreeing and

nodding silently to themselves.

The poor man's Bettie Page -- Betty Blue -- didn't find much success beyond skin mags like
"Adam" or "Escapade." Within them, however, she was indeed the star and shutterbugs like Russ
Meyer would turn her into an enchanting temptress who blurred the line between innocent and
sophisticated.

The stupor from a trifecta of Canadian Club, pizza dough and stogie smoke made the guys pretty
numb. So numb in fact that no one smelled smoke.

And even though the stag film clocked in just under three minutes, it took only half of that for the
projector to be engulfed in flames. Noodle missed a few sprockets feeding the film into the
projector and the super thin cellulose nitrate was incinerated by the projector's bulb.

The growing fire was a heat catalyst sitting on my grandfather's workbench which had all sorts of
turpentine and paint products. Everything burned quickly and the flames were extra dangerous
because cellulose doesn't need oxygen in the air to keep burning.

The guys scattered and Nick darted inside to fetch his mother.

Four alarms and a few hours later, my grandmother's house was reduced to smoldering embers
and while no one was hurt, Nick became known as the boy who burned his mother's house down.

And his fiancée certainly didn't want to marry that. Nick got married a few years later and I was
born after three older brothers.
***

"Just be careful," my dad said. "Watch out what you do."


" I just think we're going to dinner, Dad. Maybe hit the bar after."

"Trust me," he said. "And whatever you do, if someone gives you an empty wallet, throw that
fucker out. It's just bad luck..."

* Click after the jump for the actual short film "Peeping Tom's Paradise," starring Betty Blue.
Obviously it comes with a minor NSFW warning since the flick is no more than PG-13 by modern
standards.

Stag movies were widespread in the silent movie era of the 1920s, and were often
shown in brothels. Soon illegal, stag films or blue films as they were called, were
produced underground by amateurs for many years starting in the 1940s.
Processing the film took considerable time and resources, with people using their
bathtubs to wash the film when processing facilities were unavailable. The films
were then circulated privately or by traveling salesman but being caught viewing or
possessing them put one at the risk of prison. The post-war era saw developments
that further stimulated the growth of a mass market. Technological developments,
particularly the introduction of the 8mm and super-8 film gauges, resulted in the
widespread use of amateur cinematography. Entrepreneurs emerged to supply this
market. In Britain, the productions of Harrison Marks were "soft core", but
considered risqué in the 1950s. On the continent, such films were more explicit.
Lasse Braun was as a pioneer in quality colour productions that were, in the early
days, distributed by making use of his father's diplomatic privileges.

Includes Perversion for profit

Perversion for Profit is a 1965 propaganda film financed by Charles Keating and
narrated by news reporter George Putnam. A vehement diatribe against
pornography, the film attempts to link explicit portrayals of human sexuality to the
subversion of American civilization, and briefly draws a parallel between
pornography and the Communist conspiracy. The film is in the public domain, and it
has become a popular download from the Prelinger Archives. Perversion for Profit
illustrates its claims with still images taken from various soft core pornography
magazines of the period, though with some portions of human anatomy obscured
by colored rectangles.
Afro Mood Burlesque (5:28)

A burlesque short starring Amalia Aguilar. Part of "Joe Bonica


presents the Movie of the Month" nudie film series.

Blonde Stag Film (2:50)

Gosh that was sexy! Everything was right, the hair, the makeup,
and the clothes.

Brunette (2:41)

Quite well made, with an attractive lady with nice boobies. Very
classy for a Stag film.

Cherry Knight (2:40)

This lady was one of the most successful models


and dancers of the 1940s and 1950s, with a national
following. Her pictures are STILL being posted today
on news groups and fan sites.

Co-Ed Secrets Stag Film (5:40)

Obviously, the girls in this film are strictly amateurs,


the acting is negligible, the directing is negligible and
it is mostly a single take. But the viewers imagination
takes over.
Fighten Femmes Of France (2:53)

Two women in their underwear have a very poorly-


acted catfight in this vintage stag film. Eventually,
they both end up falling between the bed and the
wall, ridiculously enough.
Hot Number (2:58)

She certainly does pull off the concept of hot and


bothered in an amusing way. Perhaps she is just
seasick.
Indian Love Burlesque (1:53)

We have a woman with a cute face doing a sexy


dance.

Malibu Mermaid (2:50)

. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if somewhere, in a dark


hidden basement that time has forgotten, there are
hundreds of reels of films of different women wearing
this very same bikini on this very same rock
formation at high tide
Peeping Toms Paradise

The song playing is "Stardust" by the great Hoagy


Carmichael. It does sound a lot like Artie Shaw but
being his signature song Artie must have recorded it
a dozen or more times.
Sheree Tiger Dance (2:24)

Vintage erotic dance video showing a woman named


Sheree dancing first in a tiger-print outfit, then in a
bikini.

Scarlett Knight (1:51)

Just features another girl going to near nudity,


dancing away.

The Timid Dressmaker (4:23)

Good color film, daft title, nothing timid about her -


French 1960s

Two Bells from Virginia (2:39)

A busty blonde rolls around on the floor to music


from La Traviata
Vintage Playgirl (2:46)

Another 1960s beauty posing naked on the couch.


The music is from France, sorry no title but its
beautiful music.

Perversion for Profit (31:30)

Perversion for Profit is a 1965 31 minutes propaganda film


financed by Charles Keating and narrated by news reporter
George Putnam. A vehement diatribe against pornography,
the film attempts to link explicit portrayals of human
sexuality to the subversion of American civilization, and
briefly draws a parallel between pornography and the
Communist conspiracy. The film is in the public domain, and
it has become a popular download from the Prelinger
Archives. Perversion for Profit illustrates its claims with still

of the period, though with some portions of human anatomy
