When I was a teenager in the 60s and the hormones were running high, I was always looking for a televised movie that had some sexually provocative imagery in it. I can tell you that I would have been extremely excited to see a movie that incorporated a scene like the one above in a scary movie. Even though, in this particular rendition, no overt nudity is to be seen. But the potential is definitely there.
But, one could not, in those days, expect to see the sort of stuff you could see in a "man's magazine" in the sort of movie they might acquire for local broadcast.
