That film was banned for a while because it, "included titillating glimpses of the female performer's undergarments. But content wasn't the only concern. 'Indeed,' notes Champlin in an article on the film production code for American Film, 'it was the instant and immense popularity of the movies that stirred the first fears of their corrupting and inciting power.'"

"I was wearing a brown pleated skirt with a pattern of trees and deer; a cream shirt with a flyaway collar covered in cartoon Bambis; a tan jacket; tan tights; clumpy shoes, and a Dot Cotton coat with a furry collar. People were coming into the office and doubling up and taking pictures. It was bizarre going to meetings, and I got no sympathy at all.
The reason Georgie provoked such amusement was simple: she was dressed, coiffured and made up entirely in the style of 1970."
Georgie and her family are involved in the upcoming BBC series Electric Dreams, and attempted to experience life through the decades of technology. But the clothing is what interests me. A getup like that would garner compliments here in Brooklyn. Though I tend to stick to that classic rule of fashion: one deer-themed article of clothing per outfit. After Labor Day.

From The Other Side of Life:
"I made a church of your hair-do
And I made a shrine of your legs"
"I got skills and I got secrets, I can part my hair
I feel an empty space where love could be"
"The night is gone
And the day is here
The stupid sun is shinin'
The moon reflects
Your hair's a mess
It's lovely imperfections"
"I'm glad I got hair, glad I got ears
I'm glad I got lungs, I'm glad I got tears
Glad that I never ever know what's real"
"Mmm--I see hairstyles
Scenes of beauty
Scenes that disgust me
I see me --
I felt awe
I felt bliss
I felt lust
It’s — not unusual"
"Somebody’s gettin’ outa bed
Somebody’s gettin’ herself dressed
Somebody’s combin’ back her hair
Somebody’s dancin’ down the stairs"
Off topic: I think I've angered the font Gods. Things are screwy. Working on it.
