The Story of Joanna (1975)

** (out of 4)

Gerard Damiano's take on "The Story of O" has millionaire Jason (Jamie Gillis) meeting Joanna (Terri Hall) in a club and soon he takes her home where he sexually humiliates her. At first Joanna is turned off by this but soon she starts to feel something and wants to experience more. THE STORY OF JOANNA isn't as well-known as some of the director's other films from this era like DEEP THROAT and THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES and I think it's pretty easy to see why. This one here is certainly a lot darker and contains some rougher elements that I'm sure most casual porn fans of the day weren't overly interested in. In fact, the film doesn't have its first sex scene until nearly fifteen-minutes into the movie and there's even a male-on-male encounter towards the end of the picture, which I'm sure shocked 1975 crowds, although it won't play that way today. For the most part this is a fairly average porn movie that has a few interesting ideas but nothing great ever comes from the story. I've seen several adaptations of "The Story of O" and I must admit that I really haven't been a major fan of any of them. The screenplay here just isn't interesting enough and neither of the main characters are written well enough to where you even care. Even worse is that I found many of the sex scenes to be rather boring without any erotic nature to them. For the most part I found Gillis to be good in his role but Hall just doesn't work at all. With that said, I think the film is well-directed and there's no doubt that Damiano has a certain eye for this type of film. If the story grabs you then I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot more.
