Baby Boomer Sex Kitten: What Happened to Lolita?

Posted on February 13th, 2017 in 1960s,Celebrities,Movies,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution,Women's Liberation by Terry Hamburg

  I was one steamy baby boomer, with the emphasis on “baby.” In my first and most famous role, I played a fourteen-year-old nymph seducing a dignified middle-aged professor who falls ga-ga in lust with me. Just so happens I was the same age when cast. For the role I beat out over 800 mostly older boomerRead the Rest…

Posted on July 8th, 2015 in 1970s,1980s,1990s,Movies,Pop Culture by Terry Hamburg

They all shot out the Hollywood gate as the #1 box office hit in their first week. Must be good, or at least decent, right? Here’s four that hit the critical floor and sank fast. The Raspberry Awards, known as the “Razzies,” are a yearly counter-Oscars, awarded to the “worst in cinematic achievement.” Each movieRead the Rest…

Boomers Have A Close Encounter Of The Third Kind

Posted on June 30th, 2015 in 1970s,Celebrities,Counterculture/New Age,Movies,Pop Culture by Terry Hamburg

  It was the right story at the right time. Close Encounters broke the mold of hostile, war-bent aliens, introducing instead hope of a kinder, gentler extra-terrestrial universe. The movie offered, as one critic said, “a benign, dreamy-eyed vision.”   Baby boomers were raised on steady diet of sci-fi fright and horror. Intelligent life beyond Earth wasRead the Rest…

Bad Boomer Trip: Easy Rider

Posted on June 22nd, 2015 in 1960s,1970s,Celebrities,Movies,Pop Culture by Terry Hamburg

It’s 1969. Baby boomers are in rebellion. Easy Rider roars across the screen. Parents are at their wits end. Henry Fonda, the venerable father of the film’s co-star, couldn’t even find a plot. “What does the movie mean?” he asked in bewilderment. There was a plot of sorts: two biker hippie drug dealers make a bigRead the Rest…

Boomer Sexual Revolution: Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

  The tag line read: “Consider the Possibilities.” Today, it’s hard to believe the movie was regarded so cutting edge and titillating. Remember, it’s 1970 and the impact of rebellious boomer ideas is just beginning to penetrate Main Street. The plot: An educated, affluent couple attend an “self-discovery” weekend at a New Age retreat andRead the Rest…

  Believe it or not, I never intended to become the queen of 1970s porn chic. I started my career as a mainstream actress and model. In fact, I landed a small role in Barbara Striesand’s movie, The Owl and the Pussycat (for sure, what an ironic title for me), and was chosen to be the model forRead the Rest…

Boomers Find Their Roots: Hair, The Musical

1968. Greenwich Village. Coming-of-age hippie baby boomers strolling everywhere. The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical rails against the Viet-Nam War, flaunts drugs, glorifies free love and bisexuality, spews non-stop profanity, and parades nudity—all with an interracial cast. The finale is an audience invitation to join the fun on stage for a “Be-In.” Hair reached well beyond the young babyRead the Rest…
