Brooke Shields with Chris Atkins
in the film Blue Lagoon, on the cover of
People Weekly (August 11, 1980).
Picture Trivia
          Brooke Shields was first seen in the film Pretty Baby (1978), where she portrayed the role of a child prostitute. In the film she appeared naked in several scenes, and because she was only 12-year-old then, questions were raised if the film can be classified as child pornography.
          In Blue Lagoon (1980), the film where Shields was always remembered, she was 14 years old. She also had many nude and sex scenes with her co-star Chris Atkins in a tropical island. Do you know in what tropical island was the movie made? The film was shot in Jamaica and in Nanuya Levu, a privately owned island in Fiji, except for the “blue lagoon” scenes, which were made in Comino Island in Malta, and in Champagne bay in Vanuatu.

  1. Wow, the Blue Lagoon. I was still a baby when this was shown, but I've seen it, and it's a pretty good movie.
