Movie Ad of the Week: BIG BAD MAMA (1980)

Pre-release publicity for Brian De Palma’s DRESSED TO KILL admitted that a nude stand-in had been used for Angie Dickinson’s steamy shower scene opener. On July 11th, 1980 -- two weeks before the film reached theaters -- some bottom feeding southern sub-distributor re-released the 1974 drive-in hit BIG BAD MAMA with the promise that audiences would “see all of Angie.” Sleazy for sure, but no one could accuse him of false advertising! The co-feature, DING DONG, is the West German sex comedy DREI BAYERN IN BANGKOK (1976), released in the U.S. in 1977 by Pro International.
