Click to View Larger...Our Favorite Movie Posters #106: Teenage Mother (1967) - (AKA The Hygiene Story) -A 1967 American exploitation film directed by Jerry Gross and starring Arlene Sue Farber. The film is about teenage pregnancy and hygiene. It was billed as "The film that dares to explain what most parents can't." The film also features a graphic scene of a birth. (Director Gross reportedly paid a hospital $50 for the graphic footage of a baby being born.)

Films of this type were circulated throughout the drive-in and grindhouse circuit during the 1950s tthrough the 1970s. Many times the films would play the circuit, and then the distributor would rename the film for another round. (Thus, "the Hygiene Story" title.)

While most of the movie is typical 60s potboiler exploitation fare, near the end of the movie is a filming of the birth of an actual baby. Quite graphic for the time. (Many films of this sort would include a scene such as this, to give the movie socially redeeming educational value. Ironic that a close-up shot of a splayed vagina could give a movie socially reddeeming value.)

The Dirty Mind of Young Sally is a drive-in/grindhouse classic starring skin-baring favorite of the site Sharon Kelly AKA Colleen Brennan

Buxom redheaded "Dirty" Sally McGuire is a pirate radio host who operates from her van-based broadcasting station where she uses her sultry voice to encourage her listeners to "ball" to the music she's playing. She catches hell from the local cops when she has sex live on-air with her technician Toby, and later with a competition winner. The rest of the movie is a jumble of chase scenes and sex scenes, with plenty of skin from Ms. Kelly and the rest of the female cast, as the cops try to find Sally and shut her down.

Much of the sex comes close to a soft X rating, but this B-comedy ran repeatedly at drive-in theaters across the land in the early to mid 1970s. 

More after the jump.

Starlet Kelly Nichols also played one of the killer's nudier victims (as Marianne Walter), and was featured on the poster. You may know her better as the star of numerous 70s and 80s porn classics, where she got "nailed" in other, more pleasurable ways.
