Tiffany Clark was a memorable performer on the New York adult film scene in the early 1980s, a favorite stripper at the Melody Burlesk, and a ubiquitous presence on the party scene with her husband and fellow actor, Fred Lincoln.
For a time they seemed to be everywhere – from swingers clubs like Plato’s Retreat or fetish venues like Hellfire, to writing, directing and producing their own successful films.
And she was stunning too. A dark-haired beauty who was often featured in the magazines of the day.
The trouble was that for a long time we had no idea where she was or even who she really was.
Then, one day about 10 years ago, we were in Florida to interview an old loop maker from the early 1970s named Sal Sodano. He was an old man in ill-health so we weren’t prepared for the person who opened the front door. The person who greeted us was a beautiful middle-aged blonde woman – who looked suspiciously familiar.
It turned out that she was the person formerly known as Tiffany Clark – who Sal happened to be staying with at the time.
Over the next years we’d go and see Tiffany and her family often, and slowly got to know more about the real person behind Tiffany Clark. And as it turns out, her real life was more dramatic, more surprising than we could ever have imagined.
Tiffany was understandably hesitant to open up and share her story. Finally earlier this year we sat down, and over the course of four meetings, she talked about her life, and how she remembers the exciting, scary and wild times.
It’s a story of love, parties, arrests, drugs, abuse, family, jail, murder and survival.
It’s the story of Tiffany Clark. She’s a remarkable person, and we’re privileged that she shared her story with us.
