Brooke Shields was only years-old when she starred in the most famous adaptation of Henry de Vere Stacpoole's novel. The Victorian story of two shipwrecked childern who grow up alone on a tropical island became overshadowed on the big screen by the scenes of the nearly naked characters falling in love. The notorious sex scene has dominated headlines and scandalised viewers ever since.
Kathy Troutt was hired to search Fijian waters for dolphin that might be trained to appear in a major feature film. At Dunk Island, Kathy was hired to do nude stand-in for the leading female actor. At the last moment this plan was changed and the actor performed her own nude underwater sequence — however, Kathy received enormous advance publicity.
The Blue Lagoona classic ish novel by Henry De Vere Stacpoole, has inspired five films despite being pretty creepy. Not creepy in a spooky way, but creepy in a messed-up, this-is-super-problematic way. While the scenes were simulated using a body double for Shields, the film is still uncomfortable to watch.
Not since Pretty Baby, in which year-old Brooke Shields frolicked nude in a New Orleans brothel, has a movie aroused such furor over juvenile sex as The Blue Lagoon. Barely clothed in what appear to be artfully shredded dinner napkins, Brooke and her novice co-star, Christopher Atkins, 19, play two shipwrecked innocents on a South Sea island who discover grown-up delights amid the flora and fauna. This time, though, the passage through puberty and childbirth is done more explicitly and often au naturel Brooke had a nude stand-in, though Chris exposed all for his art.
This has always baffaled me. One of the cable movie channels showed the movie Pretty Baby. It has Susuan Sarandon and Brooke Shields, among others.

Brooke Shields was just 14 years old when she filmed The Blue Lagoonthe infamously sexy and slightly salacious island-set romance that capitalized on burgeoning hormones in a big way.
