In this photo of Brooke Shields, taken in 1978, we see a wholesome young girl enjoying her childhood. But 1978 was the same year that Brooke Shields starred in her most controversial film, Pretty Baby. The movie caused quite a stir for several reasons. First was the subject matter of the movie. It dealt with child prostitution in New Orleans’s famous Red Light District in the early 1900s. Second, Shields, who was only 12 years old when the movie was filmed, went nude in several scenes. Pretty Baby sparked a debate over art versus pornography and the rights of juveniles to have a voice in the manner in which they were filmed.
