Busty–er, busy

I’ve been too busy to post here much this week, but I thought we could extend our “pointy breast” studies with the anomalous Edy Williams.

Edy turned 18 in 1960, which is at the tail end of the pointy breast era. In fact, I stumbled across this picture by sheer accident, but I remembered her from such classic films as–well, a bunch of movies she wasn’t in because I had mixed her up with someone else.

She was in Russ Meyer’s Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls, though, which Siskel & Ebert named as one of the 10 best of the year. (Ebert wrote the script.) She was married to Russ for five years.

Anyway, most of the pix of her show quite clearly that she doesn’t have pointy breasts at all, but you wouldn’t know that looking at the bikini shot here. I don’t know the precise date of this shot, but it would have to be at the tail-end of the pointy breast phenomenon.

Edy never really made it big in Hollywood, despite her enormous talents, and she went from a TV regular in her youth to novelty nudie in the ‘80s and ’90s. IMDB lists her last film as being a porn in 1995. (A little advice from Kitten Natividad: Porn isn’t really a good career choice at 53, no matter how good looking you were at 23.)
