I'm looking for help identifying & locating two stag films that
Senator Thurmond showed in the Senate Office Building alongside
Flaming Creatures. The films are titled "O-7" and "O-12". They were
the subject of the obscenity prosecution in Schackman v. California.
Descriptions as follows.
Please let me know if you've seen these films or have any suggestions
about where I might find them. As far as I can tell, they were not
preserved as exhibits by the courts that heard the cases. And while
the identifying information is colorful, it's rather sparse on useful
" 30. The film, O-12, referred to in Paragraph 7 of petitioners'
complaint and introduced as Exhibit 1, was viewed by the court. The
film consists of a female model clothed in a white blouse open in the
front, a half-bra which exposes the upper half of the breasts
including the nipples and a pair of white capri pants (which are soon
discarded) under which the model wears a pair of sheer panties through
which the pubic hair and region are clearly visible. The film consists
of the model moving and undulating upon a bed, moving her hands, lips
and torso, all clearly indicative of engaging in sexual activity,
including simulated intercourse and invitations to engage in
intercourse. There is no music, sound, story line or dancing other
than exaggerated body movements. On at least three occasions, the
female by lip articulation is observed to state, "fuck you", "fuck
me". The dominant theme of the film, taken as a whole, obviously is
designed to appeal to the prurient interest in sex of the viewer and
is patently offensive in that the focus of the camera returns again
and again to the genital and rectal area clearly showing the pubic
hair and the outline of the external parts of the female genital area.
The film is entirely without artistic or literary significance and is
utterly without redeeming social importance.
31. The film, O-7, referred to in paragraph 7 of the complaint and
introduced as Exhibit 2, is virtually the same as Exhibit 1. The model
wears a garter belt and sheer transparent panties through which the
pubic hair and external parts of the genitalia are clearly visible.
For at least the last one-half of the film, the breasts are completely
exposed. At one time the model pulls her panties down so that the
pubic hair is exposed to view. Again, the focus of the camera is
emphasized on the pubic and rectal region and the model continuously
uses her tongue and mouth to simulate a desire for, or enjoyment of,
acts of a sexual nature. The dominant theme of the film, taken as a
whole, appeals to a prurient interest in sex of the viewer and is
patently offensive in its emphasis on the genital and rectal areas,
clearly showing the pubic hair and external parts of the female
genital area. The film is entirely without artistic or literary
significance and is utterly without redeeming social importance. "
