Playbirds Erotic Film Guides

Alongside the best-selling monthly Playbirds and Pocket Playbirds magazines, David Sullivan also produced semi-regular Playbirds Erotic Film Guides, designed to publicize his movies, and those he had a hand in distributing during the late-1970s. Issues #1, #2, #5 and #7 specifically promoted Mary’s movies – in order – Come Play with Me (1977), The Playbirds (1978), Confessions from the David Galaxy Affair (1979) and Queen of the Blues (also 1979), all pictured above. Alongside abridged re-tellings of the film’s plots (often augmented with descriptions of explicit sex, not actually seen on screen), the magazines are worth collecting because they contain numerous behind-the-scenes photos, and publicity stills.
