Sixteen


     

The Irtleys, an impoverished family of rural people, are uprooted from their isolated existence by the intrusion of a super highway through their property. They are paid $8,000 for the land, but the money is regarded with Old Testament suspicion by the parents who plan to hide it under the house for safekeeping and continue their same pastoral existence.

The children, however, are dazzled by their visions of the outside world and persuade their parents to take them to the county fair in a nearby town. There, the lights and tawdry illusions of the carnival cause the family to become separated with Naomi and Bruvver, the oldest of the children, becoming the prey of carnival hustlers out for a little action at anybody's expense.

Naomi becomes enthralled with a daredevil motorcycle rider who initiates her into womanhood before a paying audience she doesn't know is there. Bruvver is taken over by a flashy stripper who looks forward to the creature comforts that can be bought with the hidden money she knows the

smitten youth will lead her to.

Sixteen is a tale told with Parable-like simplicity. The Crows of life, personified by the Stripper, the Rider and an engagingly lethal self-proclaimed Parson who feels "called" to share in the Irtleys' rewards, must take advantage of the meek in order to survive. But the meek, as we have been told, are due to inherit the earth. How the meek are able to be shattered and yet endure provides a stunning climax to this story told with all the salt and tenderness of an almost vanished way of life.

Beverly Powers: 'They're just not stripping like they used to' Take it from someone who ought to know, ex-stripper Beverly Powers, one of the stars in the movie, Sixteen, "Hell, they expect things of you now I just can't live with," said the green-eyed, 37-24-34 blonde. Those things include looking at the audience, taking your bra off sooner and not wearing pasties. Her days as Miss Beverly Hills were different, she contends. Her act consisted of dancing in Las Vegas show-girl type gowns for the most part. Eventually the costume was reduced to a two-piece bikini-type outfit, the top piece of which was removed during the last thirty seconds of the act. And underneath were the pasties - always the pasties. Even her grandmother, a devout Baptist from Texas, wasn't offended by her act. "She said, 'Beverly Jean, while I don't like your showing your bosom to everybody, you did it with class, girl.'" That was the idea behind becoming a stripper to begin with, she explained, to show everybody that it could be done with taste. "It was a fruitless undertaking," she says in retrospect. "You can talk as long as you want and say what you want to say. People have their own concept of a stripper and nothing's going to change it." She has a valid argument. Not many people think of a stripper as being a member of the Church of Religious Science in Los Angeles, Calif. Very few people think of a stripper as someone who passes state real estate examinations or as the landlady of a North Hollywood apartment building. Beverly Powers was graduated from Van Nuys High School in Van Nuys, Calif. and is married to William (Bill) Powers, a tree surgeon with the city of Los Angeles. Beverly Powers has appeared in about 50 films, including "Breakfast at Tiffany's". Usually the part was that of a stripper and seldom included lines. "Finally I made a thing called "The Thriller" she said, "and they found out I couLd act too. Big discovery - there was a brain under the bod." She refuses to reveal her specific age. "I'm no teenager," she admits with a grin, "and I'll even admit to being past 25, but that's as far as I'll go. I haven't hit 30 yet." The reason for the refusal is very practical. "Let's face it, Americans are raised on the concept of youth, particularly when it comes to women," she explains. Simone Griffeth:

A veteran actress at the age of 16 Simone Griffeth finds that parts are coming more often now and it just could be that she is on the verge of breaking into stardom. She's featured in Sixteen. Moving from Atlanta last year to Hollywood helped. "I'm getting more work now," she commented. Meanwhile, on the movie scene, Miss Griffeth made "J. C." Thea she had the lead female role in "Swamp Girl", which was filmed in the Okefenokee Swamps. Sixteen has Academy Award winning actress Mercedes McCambridge heading a cast that includes several top supporting players including Ford Rainey. Miss McCambridge and Rainey play Simone's parents in the film. The film has an H rating because of two nude scenes. "It was my first one but I really didn't feel anything. It was like going to the doctor. I've been acting nearly seven years and anyway it was a lot like wearing a bathing suit. You really won't see all of me at the same time in the movie, but the trouble is you have to be naked to film it to get the right effect." Miss Griffeth, whose parents live in Bluifton, S. C. did a national TV commercial when she was 15. She did a lot of modeling and she attended the University of South Carolina for three years, switching her major from Journalism to Theater Arts. While at South Carolina, she wrote, put together and acted in a weekly children's show for a Columbia television station. Innocent Naomi (Simone Griffeth), becomes not-so-innocent after meeting the daredevil carnival cycle jock. Without her knowledge he forces her into a crude sex exhibition before a paying audience she doesn't know is there.
