Another popular vintage Color Climax Corporation (CC) actress from the same case accused by U.S. feds of being under age in two of her films (loops). Like Tove, the claim calls into question all of her productions, some of which are copyrighted in the Library of Congress. And yet, her catalog of films are being re-issued on DVD, including the ones found to be child pornography by the feds. What’s the trewthe?
In the opening remarks the prosecutor described the two loops on government exhibit 17-E to the jury:
The segments to be shown from this tape include scenes where a male motorcyclist and a high-school-aged female companion wind up on a park bench. Then they go into some woods and they engage in what you see as actual sexual intercourse as well as oral sex. This first segment is captioned “Lolita Climax.” As you’ll learn from the testimony, the word “Lolita” is a tip word or a code reference to depictions of underaged participants.
In another segment of the tape captioned “Lolita 2, Group Sex,” the same long-haired blond female from “Lolita Climax” participates with other high-school-aged girls and with males in a variety of actual sexual behavior…
Later, the prosecutor elicited from the case agent that they “determined” this long-haired blond female to be under 18.
On cross, the case agent acknowledged the receipt and copying of defense exhibit #201, Blue Vanities Catalog of Adult Videotapes distributed by Filmfare Video Labs. The witness also acknowledged that Blue Vanities #82 (B.V. #82) is found on page 21 of the catalog and that the video tape contains a loop entitled “Group Sex.”
The defense attempted to introduce B.V. #82 into evidence stating this was the same “Group Sex” loop as that alleged in government’s exhibit 17-E. The prosecutor objected, the judge sustained and an offer of proof was made:
If the defense were allowed to introduce Defendant’s Exhibit 236 into evidence, which is a Blue Vanities tape of “Classic Vintage Stag Films, Arcade Nudes and Strippers, ’70s and ’80s” and “European Peep Show Loops” which includes “Group Sex, 3f-2m, TA, Climax, No. 1509,” the court would find that…
The above is consistent with the archived (NSFW) European Loops catalog page of the Blue Vanities web site (which is no longer available).
TA Climax is Teenage Climax , one of several film series produced or distributed by Film Lab A/S, Copenhagen. Film Lab was a content producer which sold content to CC as well as competed with them. Another of their film series, Master Film, contain the early Tove Jensen films, including a different “L**ita Climax.” These film series were re-issued by Film Lab into video compilations, as noted in their 1980 Video Guide.
At some point, the Danish company Vicom ApS took control of the Film Lab inventory and combined the various film series into extended video compilations, currently under the Schoolgirls and Teenagers product lines. Vicom has been offering said products on the web since 1998, along with several affiliates including climaxdeluxe. A representative of Vicom said the first two volumes of Schoolgirls are available on DVD, with the remaining four set for a later date. He also said the footage is copyrighted under Danish law and the models are all over 18. A word of caution if you choose to visit their sites: Vicom deals in extreme adult porn including fisting and bestiality.
It bears noting that terms such as “L**ita” were (and are) commonly used by Euro adult porn producers in film and magazine story lines. These titles remain for copyright reasons but are routinely flagged by governments and search engines as suspect child pornography.
This explains, in part, the results of a file sharing study (pdf) conducted by the U.S. government in which terms associated with child porn were used to search the shared network. Less than half of the file name hits were considered suspect child porn, and less than half of the images downloaded by Customs were believed to be child porn.
Many of the Film Lab actors can be found in CC productions. The long-haired blond female described above in Teenage Climax No. 1509 is in a number of Teenage Climax productions including No. 1501, 1505, 1511 and 1512–(“L**ita Special”).
Vicom owns the film rights to Teenage Climax No. 1512–(“L**ita Special”), but CC owns the rights to the photos from the same film. These photos were published in Teenage Sex No. 19, one of the many magazine titles produced by CC. The story line is entitled “Melodi d’Amour.”
The digital images of CC’s extensive magazine inventory are copyrighted in the Library of Congress, and consistently being uploaded to their own site as well as rodox.com. The rodox site is administered by International Media Company BV (IMCO) under a licensing agreement with CC, and stipulates all images are 2257 compliant. Thanks to the Internet Archive, we know that “Melodi d’Amour” was added to the rodox site in April, 2005(NSFW). This business relationship is why IMCO was a plaintiff in Digital Graphic Systems, et al. v Bile.
In addition, this same long-haired blond female appears in a number of other CC film and magazine productions, two of which are on their Teenage Bestsellers compilations, No. 251 and 257. These compilations were recently re-issued on DVD by CC through a contractual agreement with Musketier Media (NSFW). As noted in a prior post, these DVD re-issues are available in the states.
UPDATE: XploitedCinema, based in Cleveland, is no longer online. But the site has been preserved by the Internet Archive, along with it’s catalog of Color Climax films, including Tove and Christa, on pages 14 and 15.
UPDATE: Musketier Media has either dropped their association with Color Climax, or no longer advertises it on their revamped website. However, the Internet Archive has preserved the association, at least in German.
How is all this possible in light of the fact my source informs me that numerous past and present U.S. federal and state officials, including two members of Congress, are aware that the U.S. feds say this long-haired blond female is underage.
So the questions persist. Are the U.S. feds knowingly allowing child porn to be copyrighted, re-produced, advertised and distributed worldwide? Are the U.S. feds conspiring with adult companies to protect them from child porn prosecutions?
Or did the U.S. feds lie under oath about the ages of Tove Jensen and the long-haired blond female, and have enlisted third parties, including members of Congress, to cover it up. What is the trewthe?
