Product Description

Banned on its original release in 1961, West End Jungle gives the definitive insight into the seedy reality and cunning artifice of the sex-workers of early 60's Soho. Now re-released as special expanded collector's edition with two additional archive 'shockumentaries', and a pop promo by the legendary Marc Almond. The Street Offences Act of 1959 cleared the "over painted harridan face of the West End" - the prostitutes - off the streets of Soho. Genuinely seedy and filmed in the private member's clubs, the 'actual places of vice' - that resulted from the change in the law, West End Jungle bears witness to the array of less than salubrious establishments that offered tawdry strip shows for audiences comprised of "bald heads and moist avid eyes". London railway termini are seen as the ideal locale for pimps to secure "ripe plums for the picking" - naive country girls who can be seduced into a life of vice. Within days, the "weak willed glamour-hungry bumpkins become skillful, heartless gold-diggers". The striptease clubs are a battlefield, the punters very much seen as 'mugs' to be reeled in by the "hostesses" for all the money they've got! West End Jungle paints a less than complimentary picture of the men who solicit sex workers in clubs which are little more than "high grade cattle markets", one hooker stating, "One of these days I'm going to burst out laughing in one of their stupid faces!" Shrewd businessmen are reduced to lecherous imbeciles in the company of two giggling working girls. Another man pays a tragically poor Marilyn Monroe look-a-like to 'model' for him "only to be entitled to five minutes of peering at a girl who needs a good wash".

5.0 out of 5 stars Jungle Look.. 4 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
This expanded release from Strike Force Entertainment essentially replaces the more lacking prior dvd(The red cover one)
The main feature is the documentary 'West End Jungle' clocking in at about 50 minutes it offers a nostalgic although obviously setup look at prostitution circa 1960.
A change in the law in the late 50's forced the women off the streets of London and into other venues,clubs,clip joints,near beer bars etc..
West End Jungle explores these avenues.
The extra material is where the dvd really shines.First up is a 20 minute 1981 mini documentary on cosmetic surgery.Next a 30 minute 1976
documentary'Get 'Em Off' is a real eye opener,add in a few promo reels and a Mark Almond pop video(It uses clips from Jungle)
along with a short interview with director Arnold Miller and an included booklet.All the footage is in great shape too which is a real bonus
when it comes to archive material like this.
