WHAT SECRETS LIE?
Now available on Ebay, not much is mentioned outside of this reoccurring meme “This is a military patch originating from the 504th flight test squadron, operating out of Groom Dry Lake, and Los Alamos AFB. Most of these projects are classified, and bearers of this patch are prohibited from discussing their occupation, hence, "A Lifetime of Silence". In a 1930's novel and a 1980's pornographic film, they both have green doors that a character cannot gain access to. In addition, the military, and most banks, use green vaults. So, the Green Door could be referencing that there are secrets that the public doesn't have access too. The true meaning of this patch is currently classified, and most likely will not be declassified in our lifetimes.”
There seems to be a bit of a sordid past to this phrase. There was a track released by Jim Lowe called “The Green Door”. It was written by Bob “Hutch” Davie and Marvin J Moore in 1956, and ended up knocking off Elvis’s “Love Me Tender” out of the number one spot on the charts. Fun fact, Davie’s added thumbtack to his piano nd sped the tape up to produce a honky tonk sound. It’s also been covered by numerous artists!
“The song tells of a man who spends every night awake due to the sound coming from a club with a green door. He tries to get in by knocking and telling them he’s been there before, but he's refused entry. He sees an eyeball “peeping through a smoky cloud” and says the code “Joe sent me,” but he’s rejected again. Many people have wondered what exactly was behind the green door, and there are various theories, ranging from underground taverns to gay clubs.”
The song was featured in a scene in "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” where Leo sings the song in one of his many paid gigs.
Some hypothesis include the songwriter wrote the track about an after hours bar where he was denied entry for not knowing the password. Another hypothesis makes refences to the first lesbian bar in the UK known as “Gateways”.
In 1921, the Green Door Tavern opened shortly after the Great Chicago fire. Popular during prohibition, the green door most likely became a symbol of there was a speakeasy bar on the premise. I have had the pleasure of going to this bar!
Perhaps more scandalous is the movie known as “Behind The Green Door”. It’s about to get steamy, mayhap the trailer better explains what’s going down here.
⭐ CHOICE CLIPS FROM THE MOVIE
Intro To Orgy - This bit of dialog sums up best what you’re about to see.
Savage - That funk tho, it’s a touch problematic.
I’m Gonna Ohm - Listen to that come!
This is one of the first hardcore films with a nationwide distribution. It was adapted from an anon naughty story that was floating around at the time. The lead, Marilyn Chambers, has zero lines of dialog in the movie. It also featured the first interracial scene in a feature length hardcore flick. This along with Deep Throat and Blue Movie helped launched the "Golden Age of Porn". It was made with a $60k budget and gained 1 million after release. Total gross is estimated to be 50 million after VHS sales. The producers ran that operation straight from the studio ensuring they got all the proceeds.
Also there’s the ivory soap…
