Breaking News: Bambi Woods of "Debbie Does Dallas" Fame is Alive!
The Rialto Report, the excellent podcast that features interviews with legendary adult film stars from the 1970s and beyond, posted the following on their website this week "Debbie Does Dallas"' also made a star out of the lead actress, Bambi Woods. The Rialto Report tracked down Bambi Woods recently but has not been able to secure an interview as of yet. We live in hope.
If anyone can persuade Ms. Woods to speak to them, it's the Rialto Report. I hope they can make it happen!

I would love to hear her story. She made only two movies - "Debbie Does Dallas" and "Debbie Does Dallas II" - became a huge sensation in the late 1970s, then literally disappeared off the face of the earth. I hope she ultimately decides to speak to the Rialto Report. She's got to be around 60 years old now and must have some good perspective around it all.

Some guy found out her real name years ago (Colleen something) and wrote a bad written E-book about it on Amazon. It had a recent photo of her too. He tried selling it to National Enquirer but they didn't wanna pay much, so he just put out the ebook. They confirmed his finding were legit.
The Rialto Report people are very good at finding porn people nearly everyone else couldn't. They've found Woods, Lisa De Leeuw (long rumored to be dead), and Desiree Cousteau but they're currently not willing to give interviews. They talked the very elusive Jennifer Welles into an interview. She cut off all contact with people in porn and had even changed her name and they still managed to track her down.

R2 I love the Rialto Report. I don't know how they manage to find so many of these people, but they do a great job and their interviews are always in-depth and really fascinating. I read that they've also located Leslie Bovee, who's become very religious and doesn't want to talk about her past career, but they're still working on convincing her to speak with them. They're also apparently working on a big piece about the late "straight for pay" star, Wade Nichols. They managed to find his brother, who's provided them with a lot of information on Wade's life.
I'd love to hear more about Nichols - a gay man who found fame in straight porn and who eventually ended up with a hit disco song and a major role on The Edge of Night soap opera! Talk about an unusual career trajectory!

I remember reading an article where she did a telephone interview and was a married suburban mom. The interview read as very friendly and her story was not a complicated one. She did two movies and moved on.

R4 They actually have an interview with Kristine DeBell in a piece about the making of Alice in Wonderland. It's not an audio interview, unfortunately. It's a written interview, but she does talk about how she came to be cast in the movie and her experiences making it.

Bovee is probably a long shot. I've seen her facebook and she is very religious it seems (and republican - ugh). She's been battling cancer (first breast and then bone cancer) for a while now and in her most recent photos looks like she's had major facial reconstruction surgery. Her husband also died a few years back. She hasn't had an easy life in recent years.
It would be great for them do a write up on Wade Nichols life. He was a great actor and by all accounts a very nice guy too.

R6 April Hall of The Rialto Report has had a long-time fascination with Wade Nichols, so I know she'll put together a great report on him.
I remember seeing an interview with Erik Edwards, another major star of the golden age, where he talked about making the movie "Love You" with Annette Haven, Leslie Bovee, and Wade Nichols. John Derek, the director and write of the movie (yes, Bo's husband), wrote a scene that required Eric and Wade to wrestle each other in the nude. Erik said both he and Wade were uncomfortable about doing the scene, and he said that he felt Wade was especially uncomfortable, since he was gay and worried about how Erik would feel about doing the scene with him.
Erik said he and Wade discussed how they would approach the scene and they ultimately decided to go all in and make the scene as realistic as possible, which helped them get over their unease with it. Erik said Wade was completey respectful and never stepped over any lines during the scene. Erik had a lot of respect for Wade as a person and as an actor.

Both Eric Edwards and Paul Thomas were signed to the William Morris Agency before they were in porn. Thomas came from a wealthy family, so he didn't really need to do porn, he just wanted to.

R69 Haven posted that on Facebook when talking about that movie. I'm blanking on which one it was. Veronica said she wasn't rude to her because she wasn't threatened by her like she by some others like Desiree Cousteau. And yes, Hart is a much better actress than Haven. I don't know why people often name her as one of the best actresses in porn, she almost always played the same type of roles and scenes, a variance of an classy, ice princess.
I have to admit I'd like to hear a Rialto Report with her though, I don't think she'd hold anything back and it certainly would be interesting. I kinda doubt it will happen since she demands to be paid for everything what she feels she's worth. I'm not sure if they pay their interview subjects or not.

R71 Haven was an okay actress - probably a cut above many of the actresses of that era - but she wasn't great. It was her beauty that made her iconic. I agree - a Rialto Report interview with her would be fun. I have to imagine they've reached out to her, since she's not hiding, but she probably had diva-like demands. I do believe the Rialto Report pays the stars for their interviews, but I don't think it's a lot of money, and I'm sure whatever they would offer would be way too low for Haven.

Helen/Dolly's story sounds like a downbeat sequel to Gypsy ("Whatever Happened to Agnes/Amanda?").
It's very sad to see her very real talents on display in the teailer for "Give a Girl a Break" with Marge Champion and Debbie Reynolds. Some twenty years later, she was offering her ass for $25.
It probably would have upset her greatly that her imdb name is Dolly Sharp, with her legit credits are follwed by "as Helen Wood". One would laugh at her naivete today but her bad wigs and unremarkable stag films might have kept the two careers separate if she'd never appeared in Deep Throat.

R111 Debbie Does Dallas was released at the height of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders craze, so it capitalized on the fantasies of many horny straight dudes who lusted after those jiggling girls on Sunday afternoons. Also, the film was brilliant in that the title implied its nubile blonde star would be doing everything and everybody in sight, which got a ton of people to plunk down their cash. But it was actually a big tease, because Debbie doesn't even have sex until the end of the movie. So horny guys with cheerleader fantasies went to the theater and stayed through the whole movie just so they could finally see cute little Debbie get nailed.
Brilliant marketing and brilliant timing for an otherwise run of the mill porn movie.

R47 One of my favorite adult movies featuring Georgina Spelvin is the 1978 movie "Take Off." In fact, the movie features a number of the biggest names from that era - Georgina, Wade Nichols, Annette Haven, Leslie Bovee, Erik Edwards. Georgina Spelvin and Wade Nichols are especially great in the movie, and even though it's a comedy, the ending is very touching, thanks to Georgina's and Nichols' excellent portrayals.

[quote]Eric Edwards is one of the hottest classic porn stars. Such a shame he never did anything gay onscreen.
He did a scene in Midnight Desire where he takes a strap on. Rialto actually asked if it was stunt butt since you don't really see his face in the shots and he said it was him and almost seemed surprised they would ask. He said he did it because the actress he was with was such a turn on. They also asked if he was ever asked to do gay porn and he said no.
When Dolly Sharp started doing one day "Loops" porn was really underground. The loops were shown in 25 cent machines in sex stores. The so called movies were shown on sheets in back of porn stores. She thought no one would ever see them or if they did would never admit to be a pervert in a porn shop.. She didn't pay attention to the industry and just showed up and did her job. When "Deep Throat" hit was was horrified and humiliated.
Jamie Gillis was bi and fucked anything that moved but made more money in the straight films. He made another gay one called "Manhold" in 3D! It's considered a lost film. They don't strike hundreds of prints of these films so the few made were probably thrown away when the porn theaters started closing. It played for two months at the Adonis In NY in Jan of '78

Jack Birch was one of the guys who did Dolly Sharp in Deep Throat during the orgy scene. He had a great body, but a smallish dick for porn and an although not really bad looking face, had very craggy facial skin.

Jamie Gillis and Jerry Butler were also excellent in their parts. I loved that Chuck Vincent used his best adult genre actors for his mainstream efforts.

Yes, Chuck would hire the more competent adult stars that could do a good job for his R-rated fims opposed to more expensive SAG actors that sometimes weren't all the great to begin with and had attitudes. He had a bad experience with a largely SAG cast on Preppies, also had various SAG fines, he mostly used the adult stars and other non-SAG actors he was familiar with without the drama from then on.
He was really bad at the business side of film making though. He ended up losing the rights to all of his R-rated movies, and sometimes sold them to more than one distributor, so it's hard to tell who legally owns them these days. That's why most of them have never had restored DVD releases.

R194 A lot of adult film directors weren't great when it came to business. I just watched a documentary about sexploitation filmmaker Joe Sarno, who wrote and directed hundreds of softcore and hardcore films from the 1960s through the 1990s. But at the end of his life, he and his wife were practically broke, and his wife explained it's because Joe never negotiated any rights to his films. So he'd get paid as a writer and director, but that was it. The producers and distributors would make all the money from the sales and rentals of the films, and all Joe basically had was his writing and directing fees.

Not true. watch the documentary "A Life in Dirty Movies ", he cared very much. He always considered himself a film maker. He grew up in Amityville Long Island but he went to Sweden to make "Inga" in a more sexually progressive place and he ended up with a huge hit in the states.

Watch some of Sarno's movies from the 80s, the latter half especially. They were movies shot in a day or two and weren't as nearly as good as the ones he made in the 70s.

It's standard behavior to jerk off to competition when auditioning so they don't spend the time and money on set during production.

After my divorce 15 years ago, I moved to Irvine with the idea of trying my luck at porn, I had been oppressed and married young and was totally traumatized by my divorce, but after a lot of therapy, I decided to reinvent myself.

In the comments on that latest piece on DDD, they said they're currently interviewing one of the other Cheerleaders. I'm guessing it's Merle Michaels (the cheerleader spanked in the library by the old guy) since she apparently kept in touch with the late Candida Royalle and was said to have positive feelings about her career in porn. She also did a lot of other movies, including several for Chuck Vincent. She wasn't the prettiest, but had some acting skills and seemed to enjoy the sex.
They also confirmed old guy in the movie, Jake Teague, is still alive despite IMDb saying he died in 1983. He's currently 89 years old and possibly the oldest living porn star. He's one year older than Candy Samples.

I hope they do an article on the late David Morris. He was in Debbie Does Dallas also as one of the Football Jocks and was very good looking back then. He looked a bit like Tony Danza, especially in his infamous pool table scene with Marilyn Chambers in Insatiable. That led to the rumor Danza did porn. He was one that fell in to drug addiction, and contracted Hep C from his heroin use. He did a few gay movies and loops earlier in his career when he looked good, but did several after he got out of shape and always looked tired and sweaty near the end of his career. He ended up dying in Florida in 1999 of a overdose.

I actually exchanged some messages on twitter with them, but have never suggested anything for their websites. They seem up to suggestions. It can't be easy to come up with something to write about when they don't have the interview podcasts, which seem to be slowing down a bit.
They said they interviewed the late Andrea True before she died and that they will be putting up eventually. It would be interesting to hear that one, she avoided talking about her porn career after she achieved some success in the music industry. Although More, More, More was the only real hit she had. She was on one of those VH1 one shows about one hit wonders back in 2002 and said she wanted to be remembered as a person who "gave people pleasure - with my music."

Excuse the interruption, but I checked out this thread because I couldn't fathom who'd be interested in posting (247 total replies!) about some flash-in-the-pan straight porn actress. As far as I can tell from skimming through the posts, most of the discussion is about female porn actresses, with a smattering of old timey gay porn dudes. I have no idea who any of these people were/are.
Obviously, this thread appeals to some of the older folks here on DL, and surprisingly, many of the posters are female. Considering that this is a gay forum, I'm sincerely curious to know what was your fascination with straight porn of the 70s, and even moreso, your desire to know the life stories of some of these porn actors who seem to be rather obscure and unknown by most people nowadays. Does it stem from a sense of nostalgia for the era? Are some (most) of you the same crowd that hangs around in the soap threads, possibly for the same reason? I'm not being snarky, I'm genuinely curious.
One thing I did glean from this thread is the existence of the "Rialto Report." I'll have to check it out. Thanks.

R248 I'm not technically a DL eldergay yet (not even 40 yet). But you'd be surprised at the number of younger people into retro porn. Most who were in grade school or not even born yet when they originally released that have discovered these movies online and enjoy them. Some turned out way better than should have considering the limited budget and time they had to film them. Many of the stars back then were interesting back then too. I bet you won't see very many modern porn stars being discussed decades from now.

I didn't think Constance Money came off well at times in her interview, either. I didn't believe her allegations against Radley Metzger, they were too far fetched, and his had a good rep except for being cheap with what he payed the actors.
Interestingly the one anti-porn star they interviewed, Michelle Maren (who had a very short career in porn) came off pretty well for the most part. But she couldn't even give an example where she was abused in porn. The worst thing she could say was the sludgy beef stew they fed them on one set. I felt bad for her and the other real abuse she had growing up and mental illness she suffered with.
I also don't think Sharon Mitchell and Hyapatia Lee were the most honest in their interviews. Both have been accused of being dishonest in the past, and people who were connected to Hyapatia said she not only knew about the faking her death scheme to bilk fans out of money, she came up with the idea herself. Her ex husband Bud Lee got the word out that it was all a hoax pretty fast.

Has a romance with Jacques Morali, gets a record deal and puts out an album with a couple of minor disco hits (Like an Eagle, New York by Night), gets a major role on a popular soap opera and goes "legit," then dies tragically at just 38 years of age.

R325 Thanks for the additional information. I can't wait for the Rialto Report to finish and publish the piece on Wade Nichols so all the mysteries can be cleared up.
I'm inclined to believe Wade Nichols didn't commit suicide. He died in 1985, when AIDS was still a "new" disease and wasn't fully understood. Back then, obituaries never mentioned that anyone died of AIDS - it was either "after a long illness" or there was no mention of a cause of death at all. Being as Wade Nichols was so young when he died and had achieved a certain degree of celebrity, it wouldn't surprise me that the suicide story would be the explanation for his death.

A Wade Nichols story would make a great movie. I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't die he would've continued to get legit acting roles. He was that good as an actor. Plus the male stars were given more opportunity for roles in legit than the women, even if they weren't that good as actors (see Sonny Landham and Roger Caine).

That totally turned me against her (wasn't a fan of hers before that, though).

R358 This interview is uncomfortable to watch. She definitely looks strung out, and she has a kind of drug-induced twitch that she keeps making with her head. And if you watch at the 4:40 point, after she says she paid her friend back, she kind of zones out for a few seconds like she's remembering something bad or sad. Then she says she wasn't very comfortable in her sex scene. Seems like it was a very traumatic experience for her.

After she did Debbie Does Dallas part 2 in 1981, she was supposed to have agreed to help promote it, make appearances and such, but she backed out and disappeared so had to have one of the other women in the movie do it instead.

R362 I recently watched Debbie Does online; I hadn't seen it in ages. Bambi Woods is absolutely dreadful in it. Poor girl couldn't act to save her life, and it's obvious she wasn't enthusiastic about being in the film. Her one sex scene is indeed uncomfortable. I wouldn't be surprised if she owed her friend money for drugs and doing the movie was an easy way for her to get the cash she needed.
That's part of the reason why I hope the Rialto Report can get her to consent to an interview. I'd love to know just what motivated her to do the movie, how she felt about it, how she got out of the business without leaving a trace, and how she reinvented herself. Then again, I can understand her not wanting to revisit what was probably a very dark period in her life.

After graduating, he returned to his native New York and studied acting at New York U. and the H. B.

I think much of the crying she did during the interview was from remembering good things and sadness at people that were no longer around (some of the people she worked with, her ex husband Marry Duran). It was the first time she had talked about this stuff in decades. She does seem to regret leaving the spotlight to marry the wealthy guy, but at that time she was in her mid 40s, so who knows how much of a career she might have had in the future. Plus the guy dumped her not long after for a younger model and she doesn't seem to have much money anymore. Reflecting on stuff like that would probably make most people emotional.

Traynor moved on to another woman to use called "Bo" who was mainly a stripper and did some nude modeling. She never came close to the fame Lovelace and Chambers achieved though. She was still married to him when he died.
While Traynor is undoubtedly a scumbag, and I don't doubt he beat her, Lovelace lied about a lot of things. She was not forced to at gunpoint to do Deep Throat and she did do several loops before that (including a few with a DOG!). She changed her stories several times over the years. Funny she ended up posing for a porn magazine and signing porn merchandise at conventions shortly before she died after decrying it for so long.
|by Anonymous||reply 412||10/16/2016|
R412 I never believed Linda Lovelace was "forced" to do porn, and I never believed Traynor held a gun to her head while she performed. Eric Edwards, who was her first loop partner (and who was there for the infamous "dog" scene), has said in many interviews that she enjoyed doing the loops and that it was Linda herself who contacted Eric and asked him to do additional loops with her.
I do think Traynor had some control over her, and I do believe there was an abusive relationship, but I don't think she was held captive or that she couldn't get away. I think she was very young and troubled when she did porn and over the years came to regret her early decisions. When feminist groups and Gloria Steinem rallied around her in the 1980s, I think she was influenced to tell the tale of the victimized woman and to denounce the porn industry. It definitely sold books. In a way, the feminist movement used Linda the same way Chuck Traynor did. The fact that she returned to posing semi-nude and re-embracing her Linda Lovelace persona in her later years was very telling.
I do feel bad that Linda Lovelace had such a difficult life and tragic end, but she I think if she had been honest and owned her choices, she would have had more respect from the public in her later years. The movie "Lovelace" got most everything wrong about her life. I hope one day the real story can be told.
That said, I think Chuck Traynor was indeed scum who used women and saw them nothing more than meat to be sold to a mass audience for his own financial gratification.

The anti-porn feminist threw Linda to the side once they got all they needed from her. They exploited her more than porn did.

She did a play after Deep Throat that bombed and her performance was panned. She had a hard life and had several health issues over the years, including from silicone injections into her breasts after Deep Throat.

R436 Eric Edwards is credited under his real name, Rob Everett, in the movie "Love You." Edwards thinks John Derek did that on purpose to "out" his identity, since Derek didn't like him.

R438 Edwards and Derek had disagreements about how the movie should be shot; Edwards talks about it in is Rialto Report interview. In addition, Derek was very mean to Leslie Bovee and told her to keep her top on because he thought she had ugly breasts (if you watch the movie, you'll see she keeps her top on in most scenes). This upset Leslie Bovee very much, so Edwards cozied up and had sex with her in his sleeping bag that night. Derek was upset that this happened, since he wanted Edwards to save the sex for the cameras. They bumped heads for the remainder of the filming.

R439 Edwards also said that he thought one reason Derek made the movie was so that he could have a threesome with Bo and Annette Haven. Edwards never knew if that actually happened, though. Edwards also suspected Derek included the nude wrestling scene with Edwards and Nichols because that was also a homoerotic fantasy of Derek's.

Eric is working on an autobiography with a female writer now. His memory isn't as great as it once was though (he is 70 after all), but is trying to get it finished up. He wasn't happy with the one he did with Linda Williams that came out long ago, but didn't really get a wide release.

R442 Edwards thinks Derek chose he and Nichols for the roles primarily for their acting abilities, but he also knew Derek was looking for people with good bodies, and Edwards and Nichols fit the bill. There may have been subliminal physical attraction on the part of Derek, which may have added to the tension.
To Edwards' credit, he said that in spite of his conflicts with Derek, he thought the movie turned out very beautifully and that once he saw the finished product, he finally understood what Derek was trying to achieve.
|by Anonymous||reply 444||10/16/2016|
Also, Edwards said the nude wrestling scene he did with Wade Nichols was very lengthy, and that he and Nichols really did get into the wrestling. Derek significantly edited the scene for the final print of the film because it got a little "too edgy." So what you see in the movie has been cut down tremendously. Would love to see the unedited footage!

When porn moved out of the theaters and onto VHS and DVD, it was no longer about trying to create something that would draw people to the movies. Now that porn could be viewed at home, it just became about the sex. Film production died, video production took over, budgets were slashed. It no longer took a lot of money and production to simply video people having sex. Nowadays, porn is more like the early days of the "loops." The "golden age" is gone.

Porn is going downhill even more precipitously thanks to the various tube sites. You spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to make a porno and some dink uploads it to Pornhub and soon thousands of people have downloaded it for free.
The tube sites, mostly notably Pornhub, have 48 hours to remove the video after the copyright notice is sent. That 48 hours is the reason sites like Pornhub survive.
Porn is dying as a result.

They do a lot of research too. More than some regular "news" outlets these days. I think the main reason many of the stars from back then will speak to them, is that will absolutely not give their contact information to anyone. One director from back then was looking for an actress (who they had interviewed) he directed is several movies and knew her very well and they wouldn't give him her contact info.

It's not just the video cameras, there was a period after Deep Throat when these movies were as much sex ed movies for adults as anything. People went to them to see how to do oral sex on a woman, give a blowjob, or see people fucking in something besides the missionary position. It was really no different than a generation of teenagers going to the Beach Party movies or watching American Bandstand to learn how to dance the twist.
It couldn't last though. After half a dozen porn movies they lost that mainstream audience and never got it back.

R458 I don't think porn really ever went "mainstream," although there was that brief period with movies like Deep Throat and The Devil in Miss Jones when the curiosity factor was high and audiences beyond the "raincoat crowd" went to the theaters to see these movies. I think this actually energized the adult industry; production values got better, actual actors were cast in roles, and skilled directors began making films (including mainstream directors working under aliases). Though the ultimate goal for some in the industry may have been to bring adult entertainment into the mainstream, I think most realized the industry would remain on the fringe. But with the advent of home video and inexpensive camera equipment, the "sophisticated" adult industry died. We'll never know what it could have been.

I think she had a lot of stressful stuff going on in her life and that time and Bobby had been ill, so she was very miserable at that time. She did grant AVN an interview in 2001 when she was inducted into their hall of fame and wrote them a letter after Bobby died along with the Wrangler doc interview. But she did not participate in the Roommates interview intended for the remastered DVD release that Veronica and Kelly Nichols did do. Here's a link to the outtakes from the Jack Wrangler dog were she is mostly positive in her interview. She credits porn for saving her from potentially life on the streets and maybe even death. However she doesn't seem to like the direction the industry took. She first appears at 11 minutes in and can be seen a few different times throughout the rest.

They're showing a special on Showtime tonight called "X-Rated 2: The Greatest Adult Stars of All Time" that will have some of the older stars from the era, including Annette Haven. Hopefully she'll get a dismissive comment in or two in, like she posts on facebook.

You wanna talk ugly? Anyone remember Karen Summer? I once read a review of one of her videos wherein the reviewer said that she had "a face only a pig farmer could love."

R550 Karen Summers wasn't very pretty, but she could act pretty well and seemed to like sex. Her work for Kirdy Stevens in particular was good. Think that made up for the lack of prettiness for some. There were uglier stars around the same time like Tantala Ray (Jerry Butler called her Tarantula in his book) and Viper come to mind.
R551 There was another documentary that came out last year on Showtime called "X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time" that had some questionable choices in there, and started getting unwatchable when they got to the post 90s stuff.

Karen Summer sometimes had a bigger treasure trail than most guys! It went all the way up to her belly button. Seems like there is a fetish for that out there,

R552 Yes; I agree with you on X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time." It was definitely tilted toward 90s porn and beyond and they short-shrifted the 70s and 80s. I wouldn't classify anything created in the 90s as "the greatest of all time."
|by Anonymous||reply 554||10/29/2016|
R554 There were some decent movies in the 90s, but nothing too great. Most of the stars couldn't act very well and the directors from this time (up until now) usually weren't good enough to get a good or even decent acting performances out of them. Most of the women just cared about building a name and credits for their stripping careers and most of the men were just meat puppets. The Parody's put out today are mostly horrible. One clip from a Star Trek parody with Seth Gamble attempting to act was cringe worthy. I stopped watching at that point.

R555 Yeah, I can't watch the parody porn. The porn of the 70s and 80s is what I watch to see acting, plot, and direction.

I found this clip a couple of days ago - it's from last year, when a bunch of "golden age" stars reunited to promote an art collection featuring vintage adult movie posters. It's brief and really focuses on Long Jeanne Silver, but you do get so see a lot of the legends - Kelly Nichols, Herschel Savage, Erik Edwards, Annie Sprinkle, Kitten Natividad...

R557 It's cool seeing the golden ager's having reunions. They have been several smallish ones at events, and sadly at memorials for those who died.
R558 Bella is far from conventionally beautiful, but I can see why she was popular (well, besides the extremes she went to on camera) she had a certain it factor to her and had a nice body.
I think the ugliest porn star I have ever seen was Bisexual Britni. She was brutal looking, and looked like "Hatchetface" from Crybaby. (with apologies to Hatchetface for the comparison).

553, it's true, a lot of straight men love a treasure trail on a woman. I used to shave mine, but my ex-husband wouldn't let me and then had me using a eyebrow pencil to darken it. I'm pretty hairy and I used to be ashamed of it, but now I find there is a lot of straight men who are really into hair.

What about Seka? She was doing anal, facials, DPs, etc., long before they were in vogue, yet it somehow wasn't as trashy then as it is today. I saw one clip where the guy went from her pussy to her ass, back to her pussy (unwashed!) and finished in her mouth. I hope she got paid extra for that!

Seka's still around. I've seen her do some interviews. She looks okay. She was never one of my favorites.

I remember seeing an interview with Seka in the 80s on the Playboy Channel. She was at the height of her popularity, and I thought she came across so arrogant and diva-like, treating the interviewer as if he was holding court with Meryl Streep herself. I also clearly recall her saying she got "six figures plus" per film, which I knew even then was a pile of BS.
I dunno. She's just never been my favorite.

Seka was very pretty, but I always thought she came across as being somewhat could. Yes, she did do facials, anals and dps before it was the norm and didn't come across as trashy like when more modern stars did it. Still, I have the feeling she did all for the extra money. It didn't seem like she was really into it like say Vanessa Del Rio was.
Seka had a bad habit of lying about stuff and being called out on it. On Morton Downey Jr's show back in the 80s, she claimed she owned 10 adult book stores at age 25. She claimed in earlier interviews to owning one and she started in porn prior to turning 25 and sold the book stores. She got mad and walked out. Downey was being an asshole, but he was right in calling her out on that obvious lie. Here's a link to that. Jerry Butler also called her out on lies in his book about her working with him when she hadn't (and he had a big dick) and how she claimed to be in porn only because she enjoyed it and money was no object, despite her commanding some of the highest salaries back then.
|by Anonymous||reply 566||11/03/2016|
R566 Morton Downey Jr. was a pig, especially in this segment. I probably would've walked off, too. I highly doubt Seka owned 10, let alone 1, bookstore, though. I did like Gloria Leonard in that segment. She was a smart woman and could debate the blowhards like nobody's business.

R219 and R227 what's your source on the David Morris info? I can't find anything about him online.
However I did discover his brother Michael Reingold, an ex NYPD cop was sued for rape in civil court. His brother Joel Reingold lives near St. Louis and was arrested on a drug charge a few years back. The square brother, Daniel Reingold, took over the family senior home business after the father, Jacob Reingold, died.

I'm not R570 but that is probably her.
The guy that wrote the ebook on Amazon exposed her real identity awhile back tried selling the story to The National Enquirer and they investigated it and it apparently checked out. They didn't offer the guy as much money as he thought it was worth so he put the ebook together. There was another older picture of her in it, which looked more like her, with short dark hair like in that school photo and youtube interview from the late 70s posted earlier.
He not only exposed her identity but her (grown) kids and immediate families as well. I thought it was a crappy thing to do. It doesn't look like she's had the easiest life since her time in porn. Her husband was shot and killed, she had to raise two kids on her own, most likely without much money.

He was a huge adult film fan and went to the porn awards one year back in the '70s.

R569 I heard that about Morris from a few other performers who worked with him and from a guy who is writing a book on the history of porn who has interviewed a lot of people from back then who are still alive and willing to talk. He was apparently a relatively intelligent guy also, so it's a shame his life ended the way it did. From the sleuth work you've done, it sounds like a few of his brothers have their share of issues too.

Her maiden name was Colleen Marlis and she attended Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset, Long Island, graduating 1978. She got into drugs, borrowed money from a friend, then did Debbie Does Dallas to earn money to pay the friend back. But she DIDN'T pay the friend. So the friend took her to a strip club to work for the money to pay back. More drugs, more whoring. Rinse and repeat.
Eventually she married a cop surnamed Hageman in NJ or update NY somewhere, who was killed in the late 90s apparently. Wanna bet he was one of her johns?
She had a younger brother, Christopher Marlis, who died in 2008. Then her mom died in 2009.
Anyway, yes that's her in the picture, taken in 2012. Yes, that's her face. Look at the movie poster of Debbie Does Dallas and you'll see that same smile.

Greetings: Written in 2011 and published in 2014 Porn Dead:Whatever Happened to Bambi Woods? is available on Amazon e book. It provides her real name and identity along with a bunch of other correct information. A fairly recent photo is provided towards the end. The information in the book is correct and legally verified.
I would also like to note in all fairness to myself that the people at TRR were able to uncover her true identity and such as a direct result of reading my story. We talked via email a couple years ago. While I am a huge fan of TRR I think in all fairness they should acknowledge they tracked her down via my e book and not some huge investigation. I also shared with them that Lisa Dee Leeuw is still alive. Regards, Charlie Imus

She did at one point if she does its hard to find. I will say after I released a photo of her in my e book released in 2014 (obtained in 2011) that her son released a photo of him and his mom in 2015 (she is not namedin picture but its her) and as I previously stated her sister released an old family picture on FB in June 2015.
There is also an online article in late 2012 with a picture of her in it clear as day and she was interviewed. The article was not about who she was or her former career. I already knew what she looked like at that point as I had my unreleased photo but it was the first official public photo in ages she must have been nervous. Regards, Charlie Imus

I would also like to note that despite the subject matter I made a point of keeping the book clean. I also kept some information out of the story to purposely avoid taking it down the dark path. That would have been way too easy and in my opinion irresponsible. I am proud that I kept the story above board and clean.

That is her in the picture believe it or do not. Fast forward from 1978 to 2012 and children (34 years) lol. If you see what she looked like even shortly after her porn life in the 1980's she was already heavier and growing her hair out to its natural brown color. As to the question her post porn life is discussed in my story.

To the comments in 575 there are more siblings and there are children. I always wondered if he was in fact her John. I will tell the continue Debbie Doubters that the information in my book is legally verified and if you look at the then and now photo at the end of my story and compare you will see that lthough she is heavier her facial features (eyebrows/cheeks/etc are in fact quite similiar even her voice is the same and yes I know this for certain) Like I stated already her sister posted up an old family photo.
If you think she should look like she did in 1978 well you may be disappointed. If you choose not to believe it no matter what proof is presented well nothing I can do. Much of the information about her online is incorrect. My story is a detailed investigation that I wrote for the love of the game. If you choose to read it cool if not thats ok.

R593 Look, I wouldn't expect her to look the same as she did in 1978, but I just don't see anything matching up in the facial features. I recently saw a current picture of Lesllie Bovee, and although she's nearly 70 years old now, I could immediately tell it was her - the eyes, the nose, the smile.
I'm not doubting you did your homework and your research - I'm just questioning that photo. If you've verified that Bambi Woods' real name is Colleen Hageman, is the Collen Hageman in that picture the same Colleen Hageman that was once Bambi Woods? How do you know her voice? Did you speak with her? Did she acknowledge that she is indeed Bambi Woods? She had a very distinctive voice in the film, so that might be one way to verify if this is really her.

Additionally there were lawyers and NDA's signed among other things so please understand I can be free about most things but some specifics I can not discuss. I am sure if you think about it their are multiple legal non threatening ways to achieve one's goals. As someone else stated yes her eyes are the same.
There are also many topics that many people like to discuss or ask me questions after they read my story. So much more information and stories in stories. The daughter is a Dom yes and she hates to discuss or acknowledge her mom to strangers. If you know her alter ego name you can find some interesting things. Additionally photo bucket has some interesting pictures. Colleen and her daughter outed themselves with teasers on the fake but clever Yesbutnobutyes interview.

Yes that Colleen Hageman is the lady that starred as Bambi Woods in the 1978 xxx film Debbie Does Dallas and parts 2&3. There are other Colleen Hagemans but that is the one that is her. I know because way before that article in 2012 came out with her picture, I already wrote Porn Dead. Additionally, I already obtained a picture of her and heard her voice. This was after The National Enquirer and I could not come to an agreement financially after they verified all my information and made me an offer. She has confirmed who she is but does not want to be bothered by it this late in life because of all the shame and such associated with it. Regards, Charlie
