Judy Brown Was In A “Threesome!” My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has This “Woman For All Men!”

Celebrating Cult Movie Queen Judy Brown!

She may not be remembered as well as some of the other stars of the 70’s, but Judy Brown left us with a lot of great cult films…and I only discovered her because of my friend Angel!

As always, it began with a great cult movie poster…in this case “threesome”, which claims to be:

“The “FIRST film made in Denmark since that country abolished all censorship!”

Well, how could I NOT be intrigued?

My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” has the story of Judith AKA Judy Brown!

Judith Brown was born on August 11, 1944 in Los Angeles, California…not much is listed about her early life, but if you watched TV or went to a drive-in, you no doubt saw her!

She has 28 credits listed on IMDB: Judy actually got her start on mainstream TV shows like “Gomer Pyle USMC” and “Adam-12” in the late 60’s…

However, it’s her terrific cult film history that we will focus on here, beginning with her film debut in “threesome” in 1970:

This is the stuff that grind house theaters were made for! A fashion designer returns to Denmark with his American wife. She is leery of the excesses of female nudity and the relaxed moral standards of the country. A visit to a psychiatrist reveals feelings of latent lesbianism!

She followed that the next year with one of the early great drive-in movies!

This is classic drive-in fare of the early 70’s: women in prison, with lots of showers, nudity and violence. Perfect cult entertainment by the legendary Director Jack Hill:

Yes, it’s a cast full of classic cult stars, led by the iconic Pam Grier:

From “Coffy” to “Foxy Brown” and more, Pam was the most empowered Actress of the 70’s – and she still found lots of time to take showers on camera!

You can see all of her best cult films by clicking on my story here:

Cult film fans may recognize Roberta Collins over Judy’s shoulder there…they shared a number of scenes together, including the obligatory shower sequence…

Perhaps less well known, Collins was one of the great cult movie queens of the time as well…not always having big roles, but always game for untying…and this was one of many cult gems she was in:

Roberta had a great career as well, and you can see all of her greatest hits by clicking on my story here:

Back to Judy: she appeared in the classic “Women In Cages” the same year.

The film included one very memorable image, as Judy finds herself chained to a wall as a menacing fire licks at the screen in front of her:

Judy also got the chance to appear in a classic slice of “Blaxploitation”, along with one of the greats, NFL football legend turned action star Jim Brown:

“Slaughter’s Big Rip Off” from 1973, the height of the “Blaxploitation” era, when films like “Super Fly”, “The Mack” and “Hit!” were all big hits.

Judy continued to work in a wide range of TV shows at that time as well, but her cult films were where we got to enjoy her the most:

“Willie Dynamite” and “The Manhandlers” were in 1974…

Brown starred with Cara Burgess in this action gem – and Cara had quite the cult film career as well:

You can see more of Cara, and an in-depth look at “The Manhandlers”, by clicking on my story here:

She appeared in “Psychic Killer” in 1975, and at this time was sporting a blonde look:

She was in a film called “A Woman For All Men”, where her new blonde locks were on full display…

As many of the grind house films of that era did, this also had another, equally enticing title:

What a tagline on the poster!

Judy also appeared in films as “Judith Brown”, perhaps when the films were more mainstream, like “International Assassin” in 1976…appearing alongside the “one and done” James Bond George Lazenby…

Then it was a few more years of small TV and film roles before she dropped out of the business…

Happy to say she is one of the great Cult Movie Queens who made it out of the business and had a great life…this era of cult films gave us some real stars:

Janine Reynaud was a “Succubus” and more at that time – and you can see all of her great film credits by clicking on my story here:

Sadly, some of the greatest stars of that era had tragic ends:

Soledad Miranda was on her way to being a legend.

She was in the midst of a great movie career when tragedy struck…see her story by clicking here:

  1. I had never heard of her, nor seen the films featured. But it’s always good to hear that someone like her ‘survived’ the business.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Pete, she’s like a character Actor you see all the time but don’t know their name…the guy who was the duck-carving husband in “Fargo” and played one of the original McDonald brothers in “The Founder.” Which, is a GREAT film for the first 45 minutes and a depressing slog that last 45…He’s in everything but couldn’t tell you his name!

  2. Thanks! I’ve seen several of those films and I remember the name but I can’t say I remember her very well.

    • Great to hear from you! She’s one of those Actresses who never got a chance to be a “star” – but you see her in a bunch of stuff as you say…like some of the character Actors today…”who’s that guy?”
