Movie Ad of the Week: FUEGO (1969)

World Premiere - October 10, 1969 - New York, NY

Isabel Sarli's personal appearances at the two Rialto theaters were only ballyhooed in this ad from El Diario and not in the other New York newspapers.

I saw Fuego at the Pix movie house on 42nd Street in the late 60s. I recall that it played for many weeks, 3 or 4, not that it was a great sex movie, it wasn't, but for some reason the movie house ran many of the same films over and over. They did it with Warhol's Lonesome Cowboys for many weeks. I recall Fuego was a film about a big breasted woman who had a medical condition, she always had to get laid pretty much with every man she came across. I remember one scene where she is trying to get picked up in the park by a man reading a newspaper, who no matter how she shows off her big tits, seems to be uninterested in them. She finally covers herself up and tries going after another man as the first shrugs and goes back to reading his paper. That's the only scene I remember from the film and that one stays in my mind. Fuego meant Fire, I recall.
