Christa Helm After Dark 1973

Fellow Christa researcher Jamey Duvall ran across these three images of Christa Helm that appeared in 1973 in AFTER DARK, a New York-centric entertainment magazine with a largely gay readership. We ran the center one before but had never seen the other two. Jamey has also found some utterly amazing, previously unknown info about Christa's life. More to come! Keep up the great sleuthing, Jamey.

R.I.P. Stuart Duncan


Looming large in Christa Helm's life story was Stuart Duncan, who financed and produced her only starring motion picture--the unreleased LET'S GO FOR BROKE aka LADY J. Mr. Duncan died on April 30th at the age of 93. I got to speak to him on the phone once for about half an hour back in 2008. I would have loved to speak to him longer but the whole incident was, he felt, best forgotten. 

Duncan's better-remembered achievement was being one of the men behind bringing the ever-popular musical, GODSPELL, to the stage.
