Top Pick November 4, 2023 Newton $18.00 - $360.00
Queen of the deuce
"Queen of the Deuce" (Promotional still)

From the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, Chelly Wilson built and ruled a pornography empire in the notorious section of New York’s Times Square known as The Deuce. Born to a Jewish family in Thessaloniki, Greece, Wilson bucked her conservative upbringing, divorcing her first husband and sailing to New York at the outbreak of World War II. Weaving together film and audio archives, home videos, and no-holdsbarred interviews with Wilson’s children, grandchildren, and associates, “Queen of the Deuce” retraces the colorful and highly unconventional trajectory of an American feminist success story.

*Film contains adult content.

Followed by a live in-person conversation with executive producers and film subjects Bondi Wilson Walters (Chelly’s daughter) and Don Walters (Bondi’s husband), moderated by BJF artistic director Lisa Gossels.
