The inspiration for this art came from the 1956 Hollywood movie... 'The Bad Seed.' This spanking came at the end of the movie when, like the Broadway play that inspired the movie, the whole cast took a final bow to their audience. When it was the mother's turn, she turned to her naughty killer brat, shook a motherly finger, then she advanced to, Rhoda who was sitting primly on the settee. She pulled her across her lap... The spanking looked pretty realistic with, Rhoda behaving for all the world like a kid who was being spanked for real, kicking her lanky legs and making one hell of a row, a credit to this fine actress and her wholly believable stage mother.
The only two changes to the original scene is the addition of colour... The original movie was in black and white... well, shades of grey actually, life is never black and white... and, Rhoda's dress, which was left in place in the movie and flipped over her hips in my art...
I've seen lots of real girl spankings as a boy in the 50s and 6os, but not one on the girl's dress or skirt. 90% were on exposed knickers, (panties,) 10% on bare bottoms. To see most spanking art these days, you'd think it was the other way around.
Evidently there is another 1980s version of this dark tale of a child killer, who was simply born evil. To me, the original 50s classic will remain the difinitive depiction of a bad seed kid.
