Bambi Woods (born July 12, 1955) is the stage name of a former pornographic actress and exotic dancer best known for her appearance as the title character in the 1978 film Debbie Does Dallas.

Biography[edit]

Woods is best known for her first role as the title character of "Debbie" in the 1978 feature adult film Debbie does Dallas. She was advertised on theater marquees as a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, although this was not actually the case.

Woods performed in only three other adult films, Debbie Does Dallas 2 (1981), Debbie Does Dallas 3 (1985), and Debbie Does Dallas 20th Anniversary Edition (1994).[1]

A 2005 article in The Age stated that Woods died of a drug overdose in 1986.[2] A 2005 Channel 4 documentary, Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered, employed the services of a private investigator to track down Woods. The investigator was unsuccessful, but could not confirm the report that Woods died of an overdose. The investigator also received a letter, ostensibly from Woods herself, claiming to have left the adult film industry as a result of the drug abuse she witnessed and to have become an anonymous homemaker and mother living in the Des Moines, Iowa area.[3]

In Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered the porn film's director, Jim Clark, claims to have given her the name Bambi Woods, alluding to the Disney character: "I named her Bambi Woods. There wasn't any real reason behind it. Bambi ... a deer. In the woods. Do you want to get deeper?". Later in the same film, another interviewee is quoted as saying that Bambi's real name was "Barbara Woodson".

In popular culture[edit]

The Dutch band A Balladeer recorded an album named Where Are You, Bambi Woods?, which was released under the EMI-label in September 2008. The eleventh song on this album shares the same title.
