Still better than half of today's erotic shlock!
13 October 2008 | by darrinSee all my reviews

To the user who claims that the Golden Age of Porn was overrated: John Holmes was not known for his great thespian ability. He was known for being blessed (or cursed) with a monstrous putz. Like his looks or not, John C. Holmes is still the undisputed King of Porn. In death at least, since Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy has the honor of being the most famous living porn star.

At the same time, there were plenty of porn stars who had acting chops: Ron Jeremy, Jamie Gillis, John Leslie, Eric Edwards, Paul Thomas, Randy West, Herschel Savage, Jerry Butler, Harry Reems, R. Bolla, Wade Nichols, Vanessa Del Rio, Georgina Spelvin, Veronica Hart, and on and on.

We then have well-made films that legitimized the erotic industry: Behind The Green Door, Autobiography of A Flea, Deep Throat, Misty Beethoven, and The Devil In Miss Jones. Why judge an entire era by the viewing of one film? A film that still plays like a good B-movie! It was shot on location, it had a decent soundtrack, a decent storyline, and the ever lovely Annette Haven co-starred.

Today, we are subjected to an assemblyline of silicon, blonde hair, bad tattoos, bikini tan lines, and a lack of eroticism. BTW, Marky Mark can barely act with his clothes on! LOL! As Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy once said: "I'd like to see Sir Lawrence Olivier act with his dick out!" LOL!
