A well written and directed x-rated film!
19 April 2006 | by (New York,NY USA) – See all my reviews

I finally got a chance to enjoy this film on DVD.I was too young to get into a porno theater in 1979 but knew about it from the newspaper ads in the mainstream newspapers.Yes, that's right,the late 70's was the beginning of the golden age of porn and the filmmakers for the most part really tried to make a film with a story and they were shot on 35mm film.The actor's and actresses's were not the buffed model perfect specimens one sees in today's releases, but most had some acting ability and your intelligence wasn't insulted with dull clinical-closeup sex scenes and no plot whatsoever.

Anyway,the film stars Samantha Fox who plays a prostitute who moves up in the world by becoming the sex slave to various people in the sex industry.The sex scenes are for the most part erotic but in a in a almost sleazy documentary way.Nothing like the polished sanitary sex scenes in DVD productions today.But what makes Her Name Was Lisa superior is that there is a real story there.Worth purchasing for your collection.
