Pat Barrington: Scrapbook of an Actress

Pat Barrington: Scrapbook of an Actress

Last week, The Rialto Report presented an podcast about the actress, model and stripper, Pat Barrington. It was a wild tale of sexploitation films, a serial killer, go-go dancing, sexual assault, Hollywood, nude modeling, Sam Fuller, Lenny Bruce, Robert Mitchum, and much more. We spoke about how publsihed the story several years ago but withdrew it – amidst threats of violence, involving an aging mobster and a boyfriend who were both unhappy that Pat’s story had finally been told.

Due to the unprecedented interest we have received in her life, we’re pleased to present previously unpublished photos and documents from her records.

As part of this collection, we are also making her full Hollywood address book available – it reads like a who’s who of the sexploitation film business. Names like William Rotsler, Russ Meyer, Jack Palance, Sam Fuller, Roger Corman, Spence Crilly, Harry Novak, Ted Paramore,and many other notables feature.

You can listen to the Pat Barrington podcast here. Thanks to everyone who wrote to us to comment or thank us for publishing this story.

    The Pat Barrington podcast is a gripping, fascinating story of the Actress’s life; this collection of photographs is a perfect complement to her story. Thank you so much for the Rialto Report’s work in getting Pat’s story out. Now, to watch “Orgy of the Dead” again……
