Tor Johnson and tits

Hey, did you know that The Beast of Yucca Flats has tits? You can totally see them on some DVD versions, or even some YouTube uploads (but you’d have to catch them, as they’re a bit short-lived). At the beginning of the movie there’s a completely pointless scene in which a girl dries herself with a towel for about 15 seconds before feeling the wrath of Tor Johnson’s beefy odour. In the uncut version, we get a few completely intentional glimpses of boobs. Here are a few stills of the irrelevant porn, but for your viewing pleasure… we’ve censored them.

Oh come on, think about it, those are 1961 tits. What good are they now? If you want to see the uncensored pictures there’s always this. And it’s also worth noting that the uncut version is up for download on the Internet Archive, though it does start more abruptly than the censored version for some reason.

Big question: why is the censored version the most common version? Sure, this is probably as exploitive as B-movies of its time went, but… is anyone really going to be traumatised by a few harmless seconds of boobs? Regardless, being the underground movie it is, it must have been inevitable from the start that barely anyone would watch it, and it’s never shown on TV nowadays or anything. Hell, classic noir The Third Man has about 10 seconds of highly sexualised boobs and no-one gave a crap about that. Sure, they weren’t in the foreground, but they were bigger and bouncier than their much tamer 1961 counterparts.
