Debbie Does Dallas is a 1978 American pornographic movie. It was both directed and produced by Jim Clark. Debbie Does Dallas was released on November 19, 1978.

There was a copyright battle when the movie was released. M & A Associates held rights and wanted to distribute it through VCX. They didn't want people to illegally copy the movie. They were unable to get the copyright protection or register with the United States Copyright Office (USCO). There would be a cease-and-desist filed by M & A against VCX and the USCO but the judge ruled in favor of VCX and the USCO. This meant that the movie would enter the public domain in the United States.[1]
