Lady J in Variety

Here finally we have a larger version of that ad we ran some time back from VARIETY promoting the  re-edited version of LET'S GO FOR BROKE which was called LADY J. The ad makes it seem as though the film was in release but there remains no actual indication that it ever was shown to the public. The rest of the films here can be accounted for but not Christa's. This was nearly a year beyond the Cincinnati premiere of BROKE so presumably LADY J could also have incorporated the new scenes supposedly shot in Florida (not by director Walsh and without the participation of Chitra). Would have been interesting to see a rating here as Producer Stuart Duncan often said in interviews that BROKE was always intended to be PG and yet one can speculate that the new scenes might have been shot to make it an R for more exploitation release.
