Peek-A-Boo / "B" Girl Rhapsody (Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture, Vol. 12) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Lillian Hunt
From the era of pasties and a g-string come a bevy of burlesque beauties performing their signature striptease acts, accompanied by a raucous gang of hairy-armed, baggy-pants comedians, testing the boundaries of what was morally permissible on the midcentury movie screen. Both Peek-a-Boo and “B” Girl Rhapsody are directed by burlesque impresario Lillian Hunt, who shot the film in a style that preserves the theatrical experience, never allowing the viewer to cross the footlights, never affording the audience too close a view. The results are two time capsules that offer priceless front-row views of old-school bump and grind (shot on location at the New Follies Theater in Los Angeles), a treat for nostalgic octogenarians and millennial New Burlesque fans alike.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Audio commentary for Peek-A-Boo by Eric Schaefer, author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films 1919-1959
Audio commentary for "B" Girl Rhapsody by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
