Melvin Belli Supports Topless Dancing

About This Item

KPIX News report by Rollin Post from August 11th 1969 featuring a press conference by attorney Melvin Belli, who states his objection to labelling exotic dancing in San Francisco's North Beach clubs as "obscenity or pornography," when compared to acceptable popular entertainment such as the musical 'Hair' or the movie 'I Am Curious (Yellow)'. Note that the audio voice-over track from Post runs slightly longer than all the surviving B-roll picture. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
