From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Smart Alec, aka Smart Aleck, is a 1951 pornographic film.[1] The X-rated silent short, which is no more than 20 minutes in length and was filmed in black-and-white, was one of the most famous and widely circulated of the early underground pornographic era.[1] It has been called "iconographic",[2] "the best known of all American stag films",[2] and the "apogee of the American stag tradition".[3]

The leading actress, then known as Juanita Slusher, a buxom young woman of age 16[3] who appeared substantially older, later went on to fame as the stripper Candy Barr.[2][1] Barr was working as a prostitute at the time, and was forced to feature in the film by one of her clients.[1] At the time there was a false rumour that the man was Gary Crosby, son of Bing Crosby.[2] It was shot in a Dallas hotel, which was the setting for several other pornographic shorts of the period.[2] The film led to Barr being called "the first porn star".[1] With Barr's cooperation the FBI subsequently prosecuted the producer for exploitation of a minor.[1] Barr later sued Playboy magazine when it printed a still from the film.[1]

The film is included in many compilations of historic pornographic films.[1] Smart Alec was among the films featured in Alex De Renzy's A History of the Blue Movie in 1970.[4] It was later made available on video under the title Smokers of the Past, Vol. 1.


A travelling businessman meets a beautiful young girl (Barr) by a motel swimming pool and picks her up. They go to his room for drinks and a good time.

They have sexual intercourse, but when he wants her to perform fellatio she refuses.[2][3] His insistence prompts her to call a girlfriend and ask her to come over and join them. The other young woman arrives at the motel room and accommodates the man in the manner he requested.
