View Full Version : Tracy lords movie

07-18-2002, 12:32 AM
My brother in law has a movie he claims that is a black market version of an early Tracy Lords flick.

Very covincing in that she seems rather young, and I do believe that it is indeed the young miss lords..

It has to do with couple hiring her to babysit and upon thier return from thier night out they catch her masturbating to a poster of John Travolta..( he even looks like a sweat hog in the poster!!) Then they proceed to supposedly teach the young babysitter all about sex..

My question is, Does anyone know the flick I saw? Is that really Tracy?? Is this one of the movies that was banned since she was underage?? Or is the rest of the flick available in reproduction??

Note to moderators..Not sure if this is the correct forum.. If not feel free to move it..

Traci Lords (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Lords,+Traci)

Your best bet would be to find out what name her character is known by and see if you can find it in this list.

If I was your in-law I would get rid of that movie quick. Those sex offender laws can be real strict and brutal. Although I'm not lawyer but I still wouldn't feel safe with anything like that.

Rule of thumb: Traci Lords only made one porn film when she was of legal age. If the movie you saw was a porn film starring Traci Lords, and it was not Traci, I Love You, then she was underage.

Let's see, a porn movie with Traci Lord having sex. That does narrow it down a bit...

Since Ms. Lords hardcore career spanned all of 3 years (1984-87), any of them could have featured a John Travolta poster.

Lets see, she was born in 1968 & did a flick or two, which she wasn't supposed to do, when she was 16.
So do the math & search at that nice link that Osiris posted.

I watched Tommy Knockers for the first time a couple of years ago, and I noticed her in the movie. I thought it was sort of strange that I'd never seen her before (what with her appealing looks and all) so I went to imdb and looked up her filmography...oh, it's that Tracy Lords :eek: Guess I won't expect to see her in anything else, then.

I just asked a question...So Okay I get a bunch of sarcastic and what the hell do you wanna know for answers..

If you wanna look down your noses at me for asking a question about a film I saw at a bachelor party then fine..

It's this kind of self importance that drives me crazy!!

I just asked a question .... OK??

What?!?! Who, I ask you, who has said "what the hell do you want to know for?"

I gave you the best ansewr I could and a friendly suggestion.
Max gave yet another answer, namely there's an almost 100% chance that the film is illegal, out of print and completely unavailable in the open market.
Guy said you gave us nowhere near enough info to find you an answer since the number of people familiar with Traci Lords porn plots are obviously quite small since they are available only through black market.
Handy was ... well Handy but still nothing mean spirited there at all. (He was slightly wrong, she made almost 100 flicks from 15-17)
elfkin's post was a hijack that had nothing to do whatsoever with your post.
gato made a joke.

So I'll offer you another friendly suggestion, text reveals absolutely nothing about the emotions behind them. All the snarkiness which you found in the posts above was put there by you, not us.

Really, with the info available most of what we can offer is is make idle commentary

As pointed out, the only US-legal TL hardcore flick is Traci I Love You -- which was one of her lamest. However some of her vids are available in other parts of the world -- though remember US customs are jumpy these days...

(BTW may I say the illicitness of a TL vids is purely a legal determination. That on the screen was NO child, no way, no how... at the time it was unremarkable to cast a character in a porno as a "high-schooler", indeed the usual problem was often she would be obviously pushing 30)

(And the scenario of "the couple walks in on the masturbating babysitter" would narrow it down to... oh about every third porno made in the relevant time period...)

As to the bit about "the rest of the flick available" -- yes, some of TL's vids (where her presence was not pervasive) were re-cut to remove her scenes, or parts of multiple vids were "mixed" into one new one, or previously cut or even brand new footage was added in her place (e.g. that avant-garde auteur and American National Treasure Greg Dark's epic masterpiece of 20th-century cinema, New Wave Hookers :p ) Hard to tell, however, since when they bothered to they usually removed all references and re-packaged, and even re-titled. If it looks like a young TL, it probably IS a young TL, this was before the pornstlets all became totally plasticized.

New Wave Hookers!!! :sniff: Now, there was a good film! Did that have an underaged Traci in it? Its been a loooong (pun inteded!) time since I saw it, probably when it first came out. I think I still have callouses from that film. :D

hey, JR! You got a copy? ;)

Next time I shall re read the posts before replying..

I shall go now and stand in the corner for twenty minutes and recite "i will try to understand posts before replying" 200 times..

Keeping in mind that all of her underage videos were supposed to have been taken off the market long before 1988 rolled around, imagine my surprise when I walked into the local Asian run mom & pop video store in January 1988 and there in the adult section was New Wave Hookers with Traci's name prominently displayed.

Rented it and sure enough she was in it; she played the devil who ended up fucking an angel.

What is the big deal about Traci Lords videos?

Yeah, she was underage when she made them, but so what? I would be that a not insignificant amount of porn at the time included underage actors.

And backing that up - given the removal in time, her fame, her obvious willingness and everything else (including that she convincingly lied at the time) how hard SHOULD (not can or would, but should) the law come down on someone caught with a video, given that its a cult classic. (not that being a cult classic excuses underage sex)

Or dare I say...band name?

I wouldn't want to perpetuate any unwanted memes of the SDMB or anything.

This thread was revived by a spammer, who's met the same fate as all spammers around here. I'll go ahead and lock this. If anyone wants to talk about Tracy Lords, feel free to start a new thread.
