The horny, expository melodrama makes for an awkward watch that becomes more interesting when considering the context of its star. Shields had the dubious achievement of winning the very first Razzie Award for Worst Actress for her role. In the '70s, of course, Shields was famous for being so beautiful and so young. When it comes to the depiction of burgeoning sexuality, "The Blue Lagoon" wants to have it both ways. They learn it the hard way, obviously. By couching sexuality in primitive purity, "The Blue Lagoon" gets away with perversion that would likely be even more controversial today. And the sexualization of Shields would continue throughout Just a few months after the release of "The Blue Lagoon," she appeared in a series of ads for Calvin Klein Jeans, asking in the most notorious of the bunch, "You know what gets between me and my Calvins? Even cigarettes. Was there a wink in this statement, a trace of irony in its saccharine quality?
The Blue Lagoon , a classic ish novel by Henry De Vere Stacpoole, has inspired five films despite being pretty creepy. Not creepy in a spooky way, but creepy in a messed-up, this-is-super-problematic way. While the scenes were simulated using a body double for Shields, the film is still uncomfortable to watch. The plot is relatively straightforward and features standard stuff for a human survival story.
Brooke Shields was only years-old when she starred in the most famous adaptation of Henry de Vere Stacpoole's novel. The Victorian story of two shipwrecked childern who grow up alone on a tropical island became overshadowed on the big screen by the scenes of the nearly naked characters falling in love. The notorious sex scene has dominated headlines and scandalised viewers ever since. Watch our two exclusive scenes and then listen to Shields' own words about the film. The new release is the first time the movie has been available on Blu-ray in the UK. It also includes commentaries by Shields, Atkins and the director Randall Kleiser. The movie not only hit headlines when it was released, it led to a government enquiry and Shields was called to testify before the US Congress. The young actress confirmed that body doubles had been used for any naked scenes and her breasts were always covered by her hair or clothing.
How do you really feel about that. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing. If she is motivated enough to want to go on a mission, she will likely not settle for having a second class "eternal companion" you who is a convert or one who cannot be sealed to her for eternity. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the other ones out there. If you can, do it now. Fifty years later, not one of her 3 children, her dozen grandchildren or her numerous great grandchildren is an active member of the LDS church. Harmony will prevail if the husband appreciates the value of church service and attendance. I hope he can do it. In fact, you likely will meet a few.
