JUDY BROWN REVISITS THE BIG DOLL HOUSE

JUDY BROWN INTERVIEW ON JACK HILL'S BIG DOLL HOUSE
The lovely and talented JUDY BROWN, who began her career as a singer and then went on to television and film, is one of the three beautiful actresses that, along with Pam Grier and Roberta Collins, appeared in Roger Corman’s groundbreaking women-in-prison films THE BIG DOLL HOUSE followed by WOMEN IN CAGES...

Judy getting checked
Your first Roger Corman produced prison flick was the iconic BIG DOLL HOUSE directed by Jack Hill…

I met Jack, I believe, when we got to the Philippines… He was just great. And we had a terrific cast, and we were all new to this, and it was the early parts of all of our careers...

We were in the Philippines, blazing the trail for Roger Corman, basically. We did two, back to back… THE BIG DOLL HOUSE and then he kept some of us on… and we did WOMEN IN CAGES.

Cool Poster Art
In a film like this, your intensity level is always high, and for your character, anything could happen at any time… How did you get motivated for this kind of performance?

It was during martial law, with Marcos… And so anything could happen at any time, and we were all aware of it… And it did when Roberta [Collins] and I were almost kidnapped in the jungle by a group of mountain men there, for real… That was an interesting experience. We were swimming in a swimming hole, way up in the jungle and the rest of the cast and crew were filming just over a hillside… And before we knew it a whole bunch of what they called in those days, “mountain men," jumped into the water. We didn’t even know they were around… They had been, I guess, spying on us… And had we not started screaming… They were coming very close and literally tried to take us away. And a couple of the crew, from over the hill, just happened to hear us… Because we were sort of screaming and they came and got us out of there… And the mountain men ran away. And those kind of things, you know… We were very na├»ve to all of that… And not after that, mind you.
