Bambi Woods (born July 12, 1955) is the screen 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. She was advertised on theater marquees and in advertising as a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, although this was not actually the case.

Woods performed in only two other adult films, Debbie Does Dallas 2 & Swedish Erotica 12 (1981).

An 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.
