Johnny Wadd searches for the Jade Pussycat!

The Jade Pussycat (1977) was one of the most popular porn films from the 70's. The legendary John Holmes plays the sleazy Private Eye, Johnny Wadd. He's been hired to find the mysterious "Jade pussycat". This idol has a great powers, sexual powers. It can increase a person's sex drive into hyper-speed. Many people are looking for this statue. Who needs viagra when you have the "jade Pussycat"? Bob Chinn directed and shot this movie on 16mm, grainy film stock. He also appears uncredited as the leader of a chinese syndicate looking for the idol. As usual "Johnny Wadd" puts in some work, hitting it from all sides. Throw in a couple of girl-on-girl scenes, gratuitous "shots" of John Holmes "stout fellow" and viola! Instant cult status. Unlike most porno productions the direction is good and it has a decent storyline.

Recommended.
