Bill Milling went through several incarnations within the adult industry. In the '70s, he had been both "Dexter Eagle" and "Philip (T.) Drexler Jr." among others prior to settling on "Bill Eagle" by the time he had reached the early '80s. The deceptively simple premise of ALL American GIRLS and its four (official) sequels assured that this was to be his most successful period yet. This basically boiled down to tons of beautiful girls, many of them new to the business, plus exotic locations equaling massive box office. Having engendered a number of densely plotted porno classics like ORIENTAL BLUE, DELICIOUS and A SCENT OF HEATHER, Milling now chose a radically different route, cruising the globe for the most breathtaking backdrops to the hot sex he had already shown himself capable of. He never looked back. Would you ?
The film's "plot" can be summarized thus : former sorority sisters swap sexy stories at their reunion. While this has been the lazy set-up for numerous films and videos since, few seem to recall that this is where it originated. Caroline (gorgeous Gina Gianetti, billed as "Cassie Blake"), now a bona fide Lady, gathers her old girlfriends at her British mansion in actuality a San Francisco house scheduled for demolition (with thanks to the late Jim Holliday) to learn what they have been getting up to since graduation. She gets things going by diddling the help, little French maid Laura Lazare (star of Chris Warfield's excellent PURELY PHYSICAL) and slow-witted valet Jeff Conrad, who was in Phil Marshak's INTIMATE LESSONS. Highlights include scrumptious Jillian Nichols whose only other credit was for Vinnie Rossi's dreary FOREPLAY rolling in the hay, surrounded by baguettes and bottles of wine (suggesting this is taking place in France !), with Charlie Hanover and Carl Lincoln, the latter also in Joanna Williams' LITTLE GIRLS BLUE 2, and a rib-tickling scene where bored K.C. Valentine and Copper Penny (a real redhead as collar 'n' cuffs perfectly match) break up a chamber music recital by flashing their privates at bewildered page turner George White. Hong Kong (stock footage) provides the setting for Joanna Storm's stylized threesome with one shot Jade Laneer and hunky soldier boy Ferris Wheel from Stu Segall's UP 'N' COMING, really shot at the Japanese Tea Gardens at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Much obliged to CD Man for this snippet of information. Giddy Lynx Canon and ever elegant Starr Wood who shared an all time Sapphic scorcher in Fred Lincoln's hugely enjoyable SAME TIME EVERY YEAR pay off their Vegas gambling debt the porno way with exotic Ken Starbuck and Rock Steadie, best remembered as the guy who couldn't keep his hands off (or out off) Amber Hunt in Bob Chinn's legendary CANDY STRIPERS. As lady of the manor, Gina brings up the rear by revealing how she got a straight A from professor Billy Dee (hint : it involves public sex at a crowded restaurant) and shy sister Jacqueline Lorians finds comfort in the arms of Caroline's strong silent brother, pock-marked stud muffin Steven Douglas, who played Joanna Storm's husband in Tim McDonald's terrific ALEXANDRA.
After nearly a decade of adult activity, Milling had enough of a track record to keep matters moving briskly from one heated encounter to the next, never testing viewer patience for too long a stretch. Unsung DoP Ken Gibb, who had shot loads of porn classics like Tsanusdi's URBAN COWGIRLS and Jeff Fairbanks' American PIE, glorifies the glowing beauty of the uniformly adorable actresses, rarely allowing them to be overwhelmed by the surrounding natural splendor. Perfect porn for girlie watchers and the Gold Standard by which all similar efforts should be judged.
