Storyline

Everyone wants the formula for male virility that Danish scientists have developed. Wealthy but impotent Herbert Steele, who desires his secretary, Kitty, is willing to pay $1,000,000 or more for the formula. He's hired private eye, Johnny Wadd, but Wadd has disappeared after a trip to Hawaii. So Steele hires Eric Jensen, a photographer and Don Juan who claims he can get the drug. Meanwhile, Dr. Livingston Presume is also searching for the formula and thinks Wadd has it or knows where it is. Presume kidnaps Wadd and subjects him to a unique torture in order to get into his memory and find out where the formula is hidden. Kitty has another idea. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Big Bad John
19 February 2004 | by El-StumpoSee all my reviews

Porno filmmaker Bob Chinn is the basis for Burt Reynolds' Boogie Nights character, and is responsible for popularising the long-running Johnny Wadd series starring `Big' John Holmes. In one of the earliest Johnny Wadd superdick adventures, Chinn is reduced to an oriental cutout supporting role for director Walt Davis, but The Danish Connection delivers everything Dirk Diggler promised - sh*thouse dialogue from crinkle-cut Holmes delivered with all the charisma of Chuck Norris, and the fighting prowess of a cheese sandwich. An impotent businessman with a yen for his secretary hires Johnny's partner Eric Jensen (Rick Cassidy) to find an elusive hard-on formula from Denmark. But Johnny Wadd, missing and presumed dead in Hawaii, is also on the case! He gets captured by the Chinese, who torture him endlessly with sex for the location of the formula, but Johnny won't budge.

I suspect the film was made earlier than 1974 as 1) The film may date from the earlier pairings of Holmes, director Davis and producer Manuel Conde (1970's Sex Psycho, 1972's Evil Come Evil Go), and 2) The French Connection was released in 1971, and porn producers making parodies don't usually have a good long-term memory. Besides, later Wadds (China Cat, Jade Pussycat) are more porno than action and are nowhere near as hopelessly inspired as this. According to the Ballad of Big Bad John, `he's got a head that he uses, and his meat is Grade A'. Right on, John.
