COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Director (feature film)

1.
No. 12 (1965) as Director
2.
Kipling's Women (1960) as Director
One of the first of the Nudies to gain wide-spread showing in the U.S., although still relagated mostly to the grind houses or, in some situations,long-time schlock distributor Kroger Babb "four-walled" it, by renting the theatre for a flat fee and taking all of the proceeds including, according to one exhibitor, the theatre rental fees. Produced by brothers Harry Smith (III), long-time Hollywood sound man, and Larry Smith (VI), Hollywood still photographer, it purports to be "A Picturization of Rudyard Kipling's Immortal Poem---The Ladies." It starts with retired soldier and world-traveler Tommy Atkins (Felix De Cola)in a pine lodge enjoying his pipe and 4-fingers of Scotch, and there to provide other creature comforts is the voluptous Cameo Girl (Virginia Rogers), while Tommy opens a Kipling volume that he allows is an account of his own expierence with women around the world. The selling point in the ads is that all the women shown "are wearing the wind" and nothing else. Very true. Very naked. In addition to showing some nude shots in the pressbook, co-producer Harry Smith has inserted a plea to the projectionists to please don't snipe the film frames. Instead, just write him at 6310 Willoughby in Hollywood and he will send them them a complete set of color slides on all six gals...Free. (The offer is no longer valid, so save your stamp. None of your business how we know.) "Sweet Thing of 16" (Margie Fisco) is publicised as actually being a 16-year-old high school junior from New Mexico. The odds are at least 100-1 that she could have produced a drivers license showing she was at least 21 if anybody from Hollywood's Juvenile Division of the police department had come poking around the set. Those who only buy "Playboy" for the stories can watch this and enjoy it for Kipling lines such as..."the Colonel's Lady and Judy O'Grady are sisters under the skin." The Smith Brothers (not Mark and Trade) prove it here.

I Shot Billy the Kid (1950) as Sound Engineer
Another in the series of Don Barry starring films (who NEVER used Don 'Red' Barry as his billing except in his series of Republic westerns from 1940-44 and the serial "The Adventures of Red Ryder"), financed by Robert L. Lippert and produced by William Berke all as A Donald Barry Production in the late 40's and early 50's, this one pretty much follows the semi-inaccuracies and myths found in the vast majority of the films about Billy the Kid, while adding a narration - a trend found in many B-westerns of this period evidently under the mistaken impression it would add some class to the proceedings. It didn't. And having a 38-year-old actor play an outlaw who died when he was 21 gave Barry an opportunity to darken his hair to nearly black and pull out, what appears to be, the forelock hairpiece he used for the Red Ryder serial in 1940 to make him look more like the character as drawn by Fred Harman. It didn't make him look much like the real Billy the Kid, though.
