Catholic High School Girls in Trouble: Blast from the Past

Warning: Partial nudity, badly simulated sex, and total irreverent depravity!

This short video clip comes from a 1977 release: Kentucky Fried Movie.
A series of loosely connected skits that spoof news programs, commercials, porno films, kung fu films, disaster films, blaxploitation films, spy films, mafia films, and the fear that somebody is watching you on the other side of the TV. _KentuckyFriedMovie

The "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble" segment is framed as a preview for a coming porno film. It includes scenes with partial nudity, and an offbeat sense of humour that is totally 1970s - 1980s in feel.

The "sexual revolution" took off in the 1960s as part of the "drop-out" reaction to the Kennedy - Johnson - Nixon war in Vietnam. But it continued well into the 1970s and early 1980s -- until the discovery of the HIV / AIDS epidemic. The cultural revolution was reflected in popular US films by a more casual use of nudity and sex than has generally been the case since.

But these things tend to move in cycles, so it may not be long before you see previews for the upcoming film: "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble, Part II."

As for "Kentucky Fried Movie," be cautious. Viewing the old and blatantly irreverent film in its entirety may scar you for life, if you are a sensitive type. You have been warned.

    I always loved the way the films of the 1968-1990 period seemed so much freer on race and sex taboos then now. I am not saying motion pictures weren't oftentimes stupid or censored by taboo back then its just they seemed so contained in the politically correct box these days. I really have a hard time relating to a lot of the material produced before 1968 not because it is necessarily bad but because it seems like it was censored for fear of Christian sensibilities. Likewise, it is hard to enjoy post-1990 films because they are usually so Culturally Marxian politically correct and thus predictable and unrealistic. I even like the way authority figures were criticized in 1968-1990 films in a way they really never were before or later. I am not saying the criticism was always just but it is better to have the police and the powerful trying to keep a good image then having media protection.
