Blind Items Revealed

April 18, 2014

This aging, but still stunning former A lister who was really a one hit movie wonder despite the best efforts of studios to make her a huge movie star has been trying to buy the two original porn films she starred in before she hit it big in Hollywood. She and her B list mostly television actor boyfriend have bought all her other films.

Bo Derek/John Corbett

There are always copies

jack ducky said...

she should let them be released then maybe she'll get some press.

MontanaMarriott said...

NOW she wants to buy them?? That is a bid odd that she didn't buy them at the height of her fame or had John her husband buy them.

Jslo said...

Another proselytizing, tea-bagging homophobe turns out to be a hypocrite. I'm shocked!

All Lace no Leather said...

They seemed like an unlikely couple, but they've stood the test of time.

Sabrina said...

But @Montana, at the height of her fame there was no internet, no risk of the movies being in every HD around. The blind doesn't say she only wanted to buy them now, and since it states that they already bought others, my guess this is something that has been going on for some time. Who knows in which conditions she did those movies? Maybe she was forced, was drugged out of her mind and she just want to erase all that once for all.

If she made porn movies they are available through some distribution company. She would be searching for a needle in a haystack basically.

crila16 said...

Seriously??? Who cares at this point? It will make her a star, just ask KK. Bo is a lot older now, and should welcome the attention. I would. Maybe I'll do a porn movie and won't release it until I'm 70.

Count Jerkula said...

@Sandy: I depends on what company she shot for. When the big 70s/80s companies went belly up, someone bought their archive. There are people very much into "Golden Age"/vintage porn who could probably rattle off the progression of companies changing hands.

Problem is, once contacted, the company owning the rights knows they have a bunch of profit sitting in their hands that they probably paid next to nothing for.

D Brown said...

Personally I doubt it. She started dating John Derek when she was 16. So any film would have been shot during that relationship. I doubt he would let her be with other men.

Corbett is a crazy but fun nutcase. Doesn't believe in banks. Gets paid tons thru acting and tons of voice over work. Not uncommon for him to have 75K to 150K with him in a grocery bag.

Shelly Shell said...

I'm wondering if she thought they were all gone & forgotten, then someone contacted her & Jon, "to sell her back a copy".

Sarah said...

That's a lot of Walgreen's money to carry around

AngelBear said...

I don't know what it is about him, but I REALLY LIKE JOHN CORBETT. I loved his role on Northern Exposure and all of those characters on that show. And I rarely like fictional tv series.

And Applebee's money

FaceBlaster said...

I have that movie. It's called Corn Rows and Corn Holes. Never knew that was her.

Count Jerkula said...

LOL @ Blaster!

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

In the name of GOD, somebody leak these bad boys on the Internet!

Topper Madison said...

I thought she was really young when she married John Derek? Like REALLY young? I suppose it's possible there's something out there, but wouldn't her husband have bought them out once he married her?

skippy said...

I loved United States of Tara, & he was very good in it, but his character was totally unbelievable. No one is that patient!!!

AKM said...

@D Brown - I thought the same thing. I don't think there was time pre-John Derek. B.S. blind.

I LOVE CHRIS-IN-THE-MORNING!

Essie said...

Why would she think anyone cares at this point? It's not like she has a movie career to protect. I'm not getting this blind. And, yes,she was 16 when she had an affair with the married and very old John Derek and broke Linda Evans heart.

texas rose said...

I would like to see any porno that she starred in when she was younger.

Count Jerkula said...

I believe it wouldn't matter if Bo was 16 or younger when the porno was shot. The Federal kiddie porn laws grandfathered content shot before the date it was passed, which is why you can still purchase and watch the movie Brooke Sheilds played the 12 y/o whore w/ the full frontal scene and see her 10y/o nudes.

Don't take this as set in stone, it is just my recollection.

BS blind

Yoj said...

It wouldn't surprise me if John Derek was the one who got her started in porn.

anon said...

Is John Corbett really only B list for TV? He has been in some huge shows - Northern Exposure and Sex in the City (Carrie should have totally married him, Big was such an asshole). United States of Tara won Emmy and Golden Globe.

He's in the new Denis Leary show Sex&Drugs&RockandRoll - can't wait for that - they're two of my favorite

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

I don't know when Bo Derek would have done these supposed porn films since she was discovered by John Derek at age 16 and pretty much never left his side until he died when she was about 42. John Derek wouldn't have put her in porn although he did put her in a lot of bad movies and had her do a lot of nude scenes.

Sherry Phillips said...

I've been a Bo Derek fan forever. I'm not buying this blind. Bo was around 16 when she and Jon Derek got together (while he was married to Linda Evans). They stayed in Europe until she was 18 so he wouldn't get arrested. He was so controlling over her and her career, I find it very hard to believe he would have allowed her to do porn. He was the only one allowed to shoot her Playboy photos and he was the one who produced her films. I do remember there was one film, "Bolero" which was almost X rated, but she and John produced that themselves.

Jay Tea said...

I'm wondering if this is a twisted version of her buying up copies of "Love You," the 1979 porno film John Derek directed and Bo was on set as a "consultant."

Bee Haven said...

Sugarbread: even if they are on Betamax.

Bee Haven said...

Jslo: he/she is?

Bee Haven said...

Ha!@FaceBlaster!

Bee Haven said...

She was stunning. And porn wasn't as hardcore then. If it were me, much older and fighting gravity, I'd release them as a box set. Memorabilia.

Clark St. said...

Brooke Shields was never nude in the movie, Pretty Baby. Her older half-sister was her body double for those scenes.

Freya said...

John Corbett's new commercial: On the Corner of Happy & Horny.

auntliddy said...

Clark-brooke is an only child, no halfs or wholes.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

@auntliddy then maybe you should correct her wikipedia page which states she has 2 stepbrothers and 3 half-sisters.

Brook Shields Wikipedia Page

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

...

Brooke Shields younger half-sister

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

But all her half-sisters were probably too young to be her body double in Blue Lagoon, since the oldest one is about 5 years younger than Brooke:

Kneepads article on Brooke Shields' 2001 wedding mentions her three half-sisters Marina, Cristiana and Olympia"

Count Jerkula said...

@Clark St: You ever see Pretty Baby? It was most definitely her. I'm not posting naked 12y/o pics here, no matter how long ago they were taken. Google: Brooke Shields Pretty Baby Nude Scene, hit enter, and when the results show up, click images.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Here's an interesting question for you. Bo Derek is linked to Lisa Rinna through four degrees of personal separation. Name them.

AKM said...

@Prunella - I'm thinking Bo --> John Derek --> Ursula Andress --> Harry Hamlin --> Lisa. Is that right?

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

@AKM - exactly!
