Shirley and Juliet

um hi



“Prior to 1914 the majority of the world’s films were made abroad. When the war disrupted European film production, American filmmakers leapfrogged ahead to capture the world market. Concentrating film production in the Los Angeles area, with its sunshine, temperate climate, and abundant land, and emphasizing maximum efficiency, American companies turned out films on a large scale. By 1920 these companies produced 80 percent of the world’s movies; by 1930, 90 percent.””
   Dominating the industry were the “Big Five” motion picture conglomerates: Loew’s, Inc., owner of the nation’s largest theater circuit and the parent company of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer; Paramount; Warner Bros.;Fox; and Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO). All of these integrated film production, distribution, and exhibition on a massive scale, nationally and internationally. Among the next rank of motion picture corporation, the “Little Three,” Universal Pictures and Columbia Pictures were similarly organized, though with proportionally fewer theaters. The last of the Little Three, United Artists, functioned principally as a backer and distributor for independently produced films.”

“Shirley [Temple] is always the center of the camera’s attention. Wearing a very short, frilly dress and with her chubby legs and full cheeks,


she seems scarcely more that a toddler, making her dancing ability seem almost preternatural. “Baby Take a Bow” proved to be among the most popular movies of the year.Her admirers respond to her dubious coquetry, to the sight of her well-shaped and desirable little body.”
  “Ironically named Joy and memorably played by eight-year-old Jane Withers,


who became a child star in her own right in Fox’s B movies. Pampered and spoiled, she is mean, loud, and destructive.”   
(“The Little Girl who fought the Great Depression Shirley Temple and 1930s America” by John F. Kasson)


Hasta be Shasta!


If the kids arrive unexpectedly, all Shasta has to do is pull down her top to cover her boobs, and jerk down her skirt!

“Judith Carr (Juliet Anderson or Aunt Peg) was born and grew up in Burbank, California, the daughter of a jazz trumpet player and an aspiring nurse.  Graduating from Burbank High School in 1956 (where she was a straight-A student), she briefly attended Long Beach State College as an art major before relocating to Hayama, Japan, in 1961, with her then lover, a Navy sailor. A brief marriage to him did not work out, ending in 1964, and she spent the next thirteen years in various occupations, including clerical worker, teaching assistant in kindergarten and high school, and English as a Second Language teacher, and working as a radio journalist in Finland.

In 1963, while living in Miami, Anderson was secretary to a producer of “nudie” movies and a receptionist at the Burger King home office; she also worked for Avis during this period. In her website autobiography, she indicates that she appeared in an (unnamed) sexploitation film in 1963, portraying a police sergeant.

During this time, Anderson was known by her birth name of Judith Carr. She did not begin using the moniker “Juliet Anderson”


until later in her adult film career, when she made the transition from 8mm productions to feature films.
