MOVIE ADS: SPREE aka LAS VEGAS BY NIGHT
SPREE is an extremely rare film.
This is one of those alleged documentaries that seemed to be very popular during the sixties and part of the seventies.
Supposedly, there were lawsuits by Vic Damone and Juliet Prowse ( 1936 – 1996 ). So, the filmmakers had to cut them out of the trailer.
Anyway, I've only met a couple of folks that have seen this film, and they tell me that Jayne Mansfield is the main attraction.
Most people know who Jayne Mansfield is ( and her daughter Mariska Hargitay ). How many folks know who Vic Damone and Juliet Prowse are?
Jayne Mansfield was NOT a joke, but the mass media, with their hypocritical-tabloid-mentality, portrayed her that way.
I can not find this flick on VHS, or region one "pressed" disc, or grey-market DVD-R.
I've only been able to find one online trailer... Oh well, that's better than nothing.....
