For Saint Patrick’s Day, I had to post a green door of course. So I perused my door stockpile photos and found this gem.
It was from a trip to Sloss Furnaces in August 2015. I was in Birmingham, Alabama for some military duty and just went out wandering before I went home. While traipsing about, I found this old industrial complex that is now a historic tourist location, and reportedly haunted.
I didn’t know the history or acclaimed haunting tales as I walked around the place, but I was certainly glad that I was walking around during a bright sunny afternoon. I remember walking up to this green door and outside of thinking, oh cool a door shot, I thought….creepy, I wonder what is behind here.
So as I was preparing my green door post, my boyfriend mentions he thinks that The Green Door was a movie.
Really? That would be cool fodder for my door post…
So we look it up and find there was indeed a movie called Behind the Green Door, and according to Wikipedia, it was not just any old movie. Nope. It was a porn movie. But it was even more than that.
I was only a one-year-old child then, so obviously, I did not hear of this “classic.” Nor did I ever know that there was a “Golden Age of Porn.”
Go figure. You learn something everyday. And, now I know what just might have been behind the green door at Sloss Furnaces-the ghosts of a porn classic.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
I’ve posted a few other shots from this spontaneous wandering, so it was definitely time well spent. Here are a few of the other posts for those of you who are interested:
