Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Those looking for titillation from this droll observation of the sociological impact of one of the most notorious porn films of all time will probably be disappointed. Broadcast on British television in 2005, Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered (originally known as The Curse of Debbie Does Dallas) is nonetheless a good-natured little documentary along the lines of Inside Deep Throat that takes a fun, matter-of-fact look at the adult film industry in one of its early incarnations (the 1970s). The film attempts to uncover the "mystery" of starlet Bambi Woods who made only a few other appearances in porn before disappearing into obscurity. It also explores the mob angle and some of the dangers associated with organized crime and the FBI's interest once porn became more lucrative and mainstream. More entertaining is the sense of nostalgia that comes through in the modern-day interviews with those who participated in the making and marketing of Debbie, and how a micro-budget movie that by all rights should have quickly faded away became a huge hit and icon of porn. Smart, gray-haired paunchy guys watching themselves perform with 30 years' perspective seem bemused, wistful, and maybe a little bit embarrassed about the wacky way they made a few bucks (only one of Debbie's original actresses agreed to be interviewed). The film takes no moral stance, even though many of the interview subjects speak seriously about the victimization that has always gone hand-in-hand with the adult entertainment business. While not as clever, insightful, or stylish as Inside Deep Throat, Debbie Does Dallas is still an engaging glimpse at a tawdry time and place that produced a classic in the annals of the adult film history. As an interesting extra and counterpoint to the history lesson, the disc includes the bonus feature, Diary of a Porn Virgin, which documents the tale of two women who make dramatic career changes into the modern porn industry. --Ted Fry

Product Description

It was a bombshell that titillated and provoked the American imagination at the time of its release. Now the 70s cult classic Debbie Does Dallas gets its due in DEBBIE DOES DALLAS: UNCOVERED a fascinating peek at the turbulent lives and times surrounding the world s most famous porn flick. Featuring interviews with the original cast as well as producers directors and other leading lights of the porn world DEBBIE DOES DALLAS: UNCOVERED offers rare and deeply personal insights into the dark secrets of the adult entertainment industry including the drugs the exploitation and the prurient thrill of having sex in front of a camera. The film also takes a smart fresh look at the intense scrutiny and outrage that Debbie Does Dallas provoked from a lawsuit filed by the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders to the FBI s investigation of the film s Mafia funders. And with help from the few people who knew her in the porn world filmmaker Francis Hanly probes the 25-year-old mystery of star Bambi Woods the small-town girl who played "Debbie" and then mysteriously disappeared never to grace the screen again. Neither dismissive nor uncritical of pornography DEBBIE DOES DALLAS: UNCOVERED audaciously ventures into tawdry territory with chutzpah and humor turning an artless but groundbreaking film into a fascinating discussion of sex and culture.

2.0 out of 5 stars I could have helped with this one March 20, 2006
First of all, I'm only reviewing the 47 minute documentary and not the accompanying movie about 2 women getting into the business. The absolutely silly "hook" to this documentary were the frequent references to Bambi Woods being a one hit wonder. The narrator implies thru interviews with a producer associated with the original film that Bambi made one movie and disappeared forever. The producer actually says that he wanted to do a sequel but he let up when Bambi wasn't interested. It's not hard to get a copy of other films like Debbie Does Dallas 2 and 3. Not once were these other two movies mentioned. Even an interview with R. Bolla (OH, Mr. Greenfield!) where he talks of having gone out with Bambi ONCE the night after they did some shooting. She may have not been in the business long but she was in at least 2 other movies looking a little older and heavier. Mr. Greenfield scored more than one touchdown! The film maker neglets to mention that "Debbie" character appeared in 2 subpar sequels.

4.0 out of 5 stars 42nd Street Revisited October 2, 2007
Wasn't it Mencken who noted that Americans are the most sex obsessed and, conversely, the most sex repressed people ever? "Debbie Does Dallas: Uncovered", a British-TV investigation into the history of the notorious porno film from the late 70's, a porno film that has, so far, financially grossed multi-millions, would seem to provide a potent starting point in one's quest to prove the validity of Mencken's (if it indeed was Mencken who said it) observation. It's a disjointed film; there's no linear progression of story here-- the film-makers jump from one observation to another, from one interview to another, from film clip to film clip, as if searching for a main point or theme to hang the frame of their movie on. For all that, there are fascinating (not to mention disturbing) moments here. With the exception of Robin Byrd, none of the women involved in the film consented to an interview (not surprising, I guess, but their absence does detract substantially from the film overall, as they're obviously an integral part of any serious examination of pornography, and to say women are the ones primarily exploited by pornography is not a moral statement or a value judgement...I'm not a prude or a proponent of censorship...but a statement of empirical fact). The male actors do consent to being interviewed, and respond to the questions with varying degrees of insight, humor, and even sadness. Robert Kerman aka R. Bolla, looking doughy and old, notes the harsh reality of his life passing him drearily by, without accomplishment or fulfillment or any evident joy. Then, with a certain sardonic humor, he observes, "Though there is 'Debbie Does Dallas'. What a legacy, huh? Read more ›

If you absolutely MUST see this one, try to borrow or (at worst) rent it somewhere.

Because contrary to one of the official reviews, this film is VERY judgemental about porn and the porn industry. All that porno stuff is evil, wicked, mean and nasty, funnels millions to mafia mobsters, and probably gives you cavities, scabies, and ring-around-the-collar to boot, don'tcha know? It's just that this film isn't honest enough to come right out and say so out loud. Instead, in a marvel of selective presentation, this film bravely confirms what every Jerry Springer audience already "knows."

Hey, maybe every single thing they allege is gospel-true - but I can get that POV from Falwell, Robertson and their ilk constantly, endlessly, and anytime day or night. And for free.

What chaps my cheeks about this particular DVD is that it uses the mystique and curiousity surrounding a classic adult film not to try to resolve anything much about its so-called subject, but to give you instead (among other delights) a straight-laced ex-FBI'er condemning porn (at length) and gloating about harassing a suspect into a fatal heart attack. Now *that's* entertainment!

And did I mention that their whole pretext for this project - the search for Bambi Woods - just kind of dribbles away inconclusively, in the end, without any real resolution? Talk about a red herring!

In short, believe that other purchaser who said he returned his copy because it wasn't what was advertised. This whole production is a study in false advertising. I gave it an extra star for being technically well-done, but otherwise it's remarkably half-baked.

2.0 out of 5 stars Moral: Porn is sinful and shameful. August 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
It seems the slant in this documentary is wrong and seeks to muddy the character of those involved in the Debbie Does Dallas films. DDD had at least seven sequels (not mentioned) with Bambi Woods in one. Much has also been made of the rumor that Bambi Woods died, but in the midst of this film an exec from VCX reveals he knows where she lives, now married with two kids, and talked to her about making a sequel. Of course, he would never leak this info to any countless fans who ask about her day and night. Besides, another film company might sign her up! The interviewers seem to assume adult film makers are all some type of crook, but only one film financer and mobster was charged in connection with "Dallas" and he died of a heart attack before the FBI could arrest him. Repeat clips of Debbie Does Dallas are shown so often, using scenes from almost the entire film, that it could have been three hours long. I also wonder why this 30 year old film, less harmful than some of the current crop, still gathers so much interest today.
