Did You Know?


Although Hollywood screen veteran Cameron Mitchell agreed to appear in this movie (his first adult film), his role was strictly non-sex. A few years later, Mitchell told an interviewer that he was told the film was to receive an "R" rating and that he was not informed that a hardcore version also was being made until after his scenes had been shot.

Actor Steve Marlow's character is listed in the film's credits as "Tony La Marr". A sign in the nightclub scene, however, spells the name "Tony Lamarr". See more »

Best Porno Ever!!!
4 January 2007 | by martben1See all my reviews

In the early 80's I worked for a Greek theater owner and learned to run the projector's...I only say this to qualify my comment. One of his places was a porn parlor and I worked there part time.

It's called murder baby is an edited version of the xxx movie Dixie Ray Hollywood Star. Anyone that takes the time to look up any of the actor's besides Cameron Mitchell will learn that they were pretty much the hottest porn stars and starlets of that time. Of all the porn I saw working in the biz that was and to me still is the best porno flick ever. I'm kinda biased though because I love the 40's noir genre, but all in all it was great for what it was. Hardcore XXX with a real storyline.
