The Girl in Gold Boots Memorabilia (Part 1 of 3)

Ted V. Mikels' 1968 film, Girl in Gold Boots, is one of my favorite movies. I wish I could explain why I love it so much, but I can't exactly do that. It's got everything you could ask for - action, music, guitars, motorcycles, girls, gold boots, gold bikinis, lips like sweet wine, a dune buggy, a Lonely Cowboy Santa, a draft-dodger named Critter, drugs, prison, a nightclub called The Haunted House, and a pretty miiiiiind!

Now, since I gauge the greatness of a movie by the amount of go-go dancing in it, this one is by far, the greatest film ever made. Take that, Orson Welles!

If you don't believe me, check out the trailer below and see for yourself!

As you can see, this movie rules. I was initially introduced to it by the awesome TV show, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and I am forever indebted to them for introducing this magnificent cinema masterpiece to me.

Since seeing it that first time, I've grown almost completely obsessed with the movie, and have purchased a bunch of memorabilia that this movie produced, and this (obviously) is the first installment of my ever-growing collection.

The item we have today is an original promotional flyer for the movie. Now, this isn't just your standard-issue rectangular, Kinko's produced flyer - this one is shaped like a freakin' GOLD BOOT. Oh, man. I am in Heaven.

Stay tuned for the rest of the collection, yak boy!!


  1. hi, just read thru all these amazing! i got a bunch of this stuff from Ted V Mikels (all signed), i haven't downloaded the soundtrack you did yet but i have 2 45s from the film plus there's an odd sorta poster/pressbook thing (i have one just like it from Mikel's The Worm Eaters) that the gold boot was originally attached to, though i have another separate "solo" boot like yours as, there ya never ends! There's always one more thing. If you like i will dig it out & send you a photo of it.

  2. also i would always want to see label scans of any related records for any posts...thanks.
