Trivia

In a 1999 interview with GettingIt webzine, when asked why there any shots of the fully erect penis of John Holmes in the theatrical documentary, director Cass Paley said, "I didn't think it was needed, and I basically cut it with a cable version in mind - like for HBO or something." See more »

Quotes

Bob Vosse: Almost no one in the business knew John Holmes or anything about his personal life about where he was born, lived, his family, his wife, or anything. John had almost no social life and very few friends. He didn't want you to be his friend. I tried to be John's friend, but I can't say that I was ever his friend. He didn't want friends.

Fascinating look at a human tri-pod
13 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely fascinating biography/ documentary about John Holmes featuring entertaining interviews with such notable people as Paul Thomas Anderson, Al Goldstien, Ron Coen, and leading actresses of the Golden Age of pornography. The best interviews in my opinion would be Al Goldstein and Bill Amerson who both seems honest and say some hilarious stuff. Also seeing clips of Holmes movies is always fun. Pretty much every aspect of his life is covered here and every facet of them is endlessly intriguing.both And it helps to separate some of the facts from some of the BS.

My Grade: A
