Rene Bond Performance in Necromania Omitted from Biography Vintage Sleaze Polaroid
A polaroid photo from the mid 1970s. I'm not sure if Rene Bond brought Dad onstage in this performance, but she might have (see below) As you know, I usually write a story for each image here, but I simply can not do a better job than the biography by Craig Anthony HERE from the IMDb website. Except that he left out her performance in Necromania, an extraordinary and horrible movie directed by no less then Ed Wood jr. Heck, to me that's the primary reason for including Rene ANYWHERE! Rene played young in skinflicks...she had a baby face like Candy Barr. She also died young.
Rene Bond dominated early '70s Los Angeles porn, appearing in about 300 films and loops. She entered porn in the late 1960s for the usual reason, money. In her own words "I had some friends who were working in porno, and I needed the money. So they said they'd introduce me to some people, and they did. I got used to the money." Rene began her career in the low budget schlock of producer Harry H. Novak, often appearing with her long time boyfriend Ric Lutze. They would be a regular cinematic pair in both softcore and hardcore films for most of the 1970s. An industry observer described her as "a sinfully sexy and youthful looking little strumpet whose well-rounded acting skills and vivacious approach to on-screen sexing made her an instant favorite." She had a petite, trim body that made her the choice to play teenagers or farmers' daughters. She also had a deft touch with comedy. Her landmark linking segments in Teen-age Fantasies: An Adult Documentary (1971) epitomize her knack for coming across as sweet and winsome in even the raunchiest material. Rene was one of the first porn starlets to have breast implants to cater to what she called the "North American Breast Fetish". She got even more work after that. Rene incorporated herself in the mid 1970s and sold photos and slides of herself through her own mail order company. She also sang, danced and stripped at the Ivar Burlesque Theater in Hollywood. She often brought her father on stage and sang "My Heart Belongs to Daddy." Her mom went everywhere with her. She happily signed autographs in the lobby for a dollar each after her performances. Rene and Ric vanished from the film scene in 1978. Rene stayed out of sight until the mid 1980s when she was spotted as a contestant on the TV quiz show "Break the Bank" (1985). She was introduced as a bankruptcy specialist and had a new husband in tow. (She won over $9,000 in cash and prizes.) Rene was seen around Las Vegas throughout the late 1980s and 1990s. She died of liver problems in the late 1990s. Biography by Craig Anthony HERE
