I think a lot of it has to do with circumstance.  I'm just amazed that she was able to do it without denouncing the industry.

I was also thinking maybe - since she had done an illegal porn flick when she was something like 15 or 16 - that it generated enough sympathy (or maybe just some "Lets not go there...") to encourage the larger entertainment industry to not make an issue of it?

Beating up on her could have easily set off a firestorm in the movie industry if she was seen as being penalized for something that she got caught up in when she was still technically a minor. (I say "technically" because there's something about her expression that makes me think she wasn't ever much of a minor, despite her age, once she left home.)

Of course there's all the conspiracy theories about who/why dobbed her in as being underage.

But after having watched NoTE last night, (even though it is horribly ham acted in places), I have to say she does looking extremely good in a bikini  :P

Managed to squeeze in The Brain Eaters last night also, which The Puppet Masters appears to be a remake of.

Man, Traci Lords really did a number on the men before my generation.  Every time I hear one of you guys talk about her, it's like a special thing.  I keep trying to relate and can't.  I have access to thousands of hot porn chicks at any given moment, none seem special.  I'm always blown away by that.  I guess the closest I can relate was all the hubbub in junior high about Sharon Stone and Basic Instinct.

It was back in the days of porn with a plot, (no matter how thinly disguised it was), and of 100% natural instead of 50% silicon....before your time  :P

Getting away from porn for a moment, for those who remember what a Drive-in was and want a trip back down Memory Lane, go grab a large bag of popcorn and check out the series of Shocker Internet Drive-In videos at the Internet Archive or their main website Shocker Internet Drive-In.

I don't think it's so much that. More like she was just easiest to remember. Mainly because of her attitude (on and off he screen) and all the stories making the rounds about her. Don't forget, times were a lot more repressed back then. Despite the 'sexual revolution' things were still pretty much Sunday School for most Americans. They may have thought about getting up to all kinds of shenanigans and escapades. But it seldom went beyond that. It wasn't till the Disco Era that it all broke wide open and almost anything went - as long as the guy was still mostly left in control.

You're not  unusual. And Betty Page was better in that domain than anything that ever came before or after IMHO.

In case anybody doesn't know who Betty Page is
What? You thought it was gonna be a "Betty Page" Betty Page picture?
Dream on! Or go Google her...this is a family site!

There is a certain sameness to porn actors and movies. And therein lies one difference between porn and eroticism. Porn is predictable and appeals to the lowest common denominator in the human libido. Which tends to be more a young person's thing since every experience seems brand new - and a healthy 20-something body is such a marvelous vehicle to go exploring with. (*sigh*)

As you get older and more sophisticated (or jaded :P) it usually takes a little more to seduce you than just seeing some attractive person taking their clothes off. At least for most of us.
 ;D ;)
