Baby Doll or Doll Baby

Remember the movie BABY DOLL?  It wasn't about a baby named Doll, or a doll named Baby.  It was about a sexy spoiled teenager and her flirtation with the older folks in town.  I think it might have been written by Tennessee Rivers but don't hold me to that.  It has the flavor and pace of a Tennessee Rivers play turned movie.  I remember we either had to go to Cartersville or the Cobb Theater to see it - they both had movies that made the censors shake their heads.

This was in HUMBUG #1, in the 50s, after editor Harvey Kurtzman left MAD, after his second humor -satire magazine TRUMP folded after two issues.   HUMBUG was his 3rd experiment. of Harvey being his old publisher. 

The story was written by Harvey Kurtzman and illustrated by Georgia's own Jack Davis.
