Dottie Gets Spanked (1993) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1994 , Fiction)
Director: Todd Haynes

From the cryptic pen of Todd (Poison) Haynes, Dottie Gets Spanked explores the depths of a young boy's imagination via his obsession with a trashy 60s TV comedy. When young Steven wins a contest to visit the set and meet his idol Dottie, little does he know that his illusions are about to crumble. Based on Haynes' own childhood infatuation with The Lucy Show, Dottie delves into the psychoanalytic well-springs of sexuality with Haynes' now trademark acuity.
