Breaking Point - revisited.

After that last piece on Bo A. Vibenius 1975 smutfest-oddity Breaking Point, I was sent this clipping taken from the Borås newspaper announcing the movie's premiere at the Olympia Cinema. That's where the movie premiered upon it's release after the censors had their way with the movie. Notice that the ad also makes sure to point out that the movie was Banned by the censors - now released, and that it played twice a night 18.30 and 20.30 - so if one viewing wasn't enough there was always a chance to catch the later screening...

In some great way that simple, minimalistic ad sums up the movie perfectly with it's naked chick, and Bob Bellings gawking at her through his glasses.

And about those edits that where made to the movie... well there was actually only a total of approximately eighty seconds taken out of the film... Strange as Thriller - a cruel picture 1974 lost a lot more content to the dreaded scissors than Breaking Point ever did.


Thanx Stefan for the facsimile.

The ad mat is simple and strangely perfect.
