The Passions of Carol opened simultaneously at the Capri and the Quad cinemas in Manhattan on Monday, March 24, 1975. The film played for two weeks at the Quad (which did not maintain a regular adult policy) but continued on at the Capri - a significant New York adult venue - for 9 weeks total, closing on May 26, 1975. Compared to other bookings at the Capri, it would appear that The Passions of Carol had a long and successful run. See more »
Nearly 16 minutes into the movie, the director and cinematographer are seen filming the movie in a mirror behind the actors for about 15 seconds; a few seconds later, a crew member is seen walking in the mirror. See more »
Are you just what's happening to me? Or are you what's happening to everyone?
Well, you are a curious little munchkin. Well, if you must know, I'm your 'now'. I mean at least now I'm your now. Other nows I'm other people's nows. Did you get all of that? I mean, I'm just happening everywhere, honey. I'm so now that, well, if there were such a thing as reincarnation I'd come back as Bloomingdale's.

I saw this on bigscreen back in 1975 with no idea what it was about; it was just that week's feature at a porno house I occasionally visited, so I bought a ticket and went in. What it *is* is a story about Carol Scrooge, heartless editor of a PLAYGIRL-like male nudie mag, who is abusive to her employee Bob Cratchit and who receives a visit on Xmas Eve from the ghost of... You get the picture.
"Ring Christmas Bells" music will put a seasonal twinkle in your heart, but why do all of Ms Scrooge's holiday memories seem to involve hardcore sex? Does she ever get the Xmas spirit?
Cheaply made, and much in need of a script polish and a few extra days' production time, this is still an imaginative porn effort. Sonny Landham guests as prospective male model auditioned by Scrooge and her secretary; cult actress Susan Sloane appears in a kinky flashback of Xmas Past; Bob Cratchit (Jamie Gillis) and wife Tiny Kim (Pope) celebrate in their own sweet way. And you've never seen the reunion of Scrooge with Marley's ghost visualized quite as it is here.
One-of-a-kind pic is a must-see for anyone interested in the porn genre and should not be overlooked by dedicated Dickens scholars, either. My copy of this tape is on the Video-X-Pix label, which folded years ago. I don't know of a currently available version but it is certainly worth looking for and rates a 5 for its chutzpah. The concept is a bit better than the porn content. Play this and the Alistair Sim version back to back.
