The Living Picture ! First stag film to pose as "ART" Remarkable Historical Vintage Sleaze


The First Nudie Cutie?  The Living Picture was a 1920s silent film which remarkably revealed far more than was acceptable for the times, and appears to be one of the earliest examples of art imitating smut or vice versa…Pre-code!  A fetching model poses topless for a handsome, if silent, struggling artist.  Watch as a collector enters the scene and palpitates over the painting then drops a grand for it!  Timeless, and revealing issues still being squabbled over!  (Art, value, nudity, censorship, ownership…you name it.) 

I have a few scans of the topless segments, and I can assure you the film would be controversial today STILL.  Idiots.

The censored Youtube clip (which as of this post has had a staggering 33 viewers…that's right. 33.)
