This astonishing, scintillating collection from the silent era, most of which are from the 1920s, are genuine, legitimate and by today's hardcore standards, amazingly charming, pornographic short films that leave nothing to the imagination. From predictable fantasy scenarios - monk spies on, then joins naughty nuns; teacher must spank naughty schoolgirls - to more esoteric fare (homosexuality and animal ecstasy, to name just two), vintage porn has never been more accessible...or attainable. The shorts in The Good Old Naughty Days were primarily designed to be shown in the waiting rooms of brothels, amusing patrons - and no doubt giving them some ideas - as they awaited their girl. They also reveal production standards far in advance of comparable films being made elsewhere at the time, as well as an inventive and often humorous array of diverse couplings. These films were usually created in a haphazard fashion in an afternoon with friends and local prostitutes lending a hand for a few cents. All of them requested to remain anonymous, which makes it impossible to identify who really acted or directed them. For this reason, it is rather delightful to watch these "actors" often having to readjust their wigs and fake moustaches in the middle of their scenes so as not to be recognized unmasked. It is nevertheless touching to see how fresh and naïve these films look in comparison with today's X-rated film productions. Considering the age of these films, it is miraculous that they have been rediscovered and restored. These films are a part of our heritage and certainly a part of the secret history of cinema. In their own amusing way, these images involve us in a very direct, physical and intimate relationship with the good old days. These films have been restored by the Archives of the Centre National de la Cinématographie in France.

Nine closely related episodes featuring the erotic escapades of a young New York heiress and the people associated with her.

Pauline writes about her experiences to a woman named Gypsy, mysterious opium smoking, Tarot Card dealing ex lover of Pauline's (who talks directly to the viewer about Pauline and their times together).
As Gypsy reads the letters we see Pauline's encounters and learn about her history…..
Ferrara seems to have pretty much disowned this movie, his first feature length production, and tends to say that his first real film was "The Driller Killer". And this is actually a shame as there is nothing wrong at all with his foray into hardcore pornography and in fact the film has many aspects that fans of his work will recognise and appreciate.
From peek-a-boo panties to girl on girl petting to more "indiscreet" activities, Stuart's titillating mises-en-scene challenge us to break loose from traditional moral codes. Also included is a rare interview with Stuart.
Tagline: How far does a girl have to go to untangle her tingle?
Plot: Linda, frustrated that her hugely energetic sex life leaves her unsatisfied, seeks medical help. The doctor informs her that the reason for her problem is that her clitoris is mistakenly located at the back of her throat - but there is a very simple remedy, which the doctor, and various other men, proceed to demonstrate...
Pornography meets Pygmalion. Misty, the hooker, meets the sexologist who thinks he can transform her from the nadir of passion into someone who inspires passion. While Misty is trained for her big test, seducing a homosexual artist, the relationship between the doctor and Misty remains unsettled.
While all of adult film auteur Radley Metzger's soft and hardcore films bear his unmistakable stamp of elegance, only The Opening of Misty Beethoven broke the XXX mold and earned respected as a well made film which happened to contain actual sex. Thanks to a witty script, deft performances (yes, everyone here can act), striking sets, and continental locales, this is one for the time capsule.

Bud Townsend's X-rated version of Alice in Wonderland carries the gonzo '70s spirit of a porn-chic film like Fritz the Cat -- which naturally also makes it shoddily produced and essentially outr . A film that must have been influenced by the heavy drug use of its creators, this Alice should probably be watched under those conditions as well. Populated by bizarre characters (not all of whom spring from the source material) decked out in furry animal costumes, the film moves along the basic story line, but peppers it with flippant sexual episodes, meant to be humorous more than titillating. Parts of it aren't even that unconventional, and the sex is not especially graphic, but the overarching weirdness of it all is the lasting impression. The scenes, such as they are, are linked together by hilarious porn-punned title cards and zany band music, which plants the film's tongue even more firmly in its cheek. This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a prototypical addition to the guilty-pleasure library of films that are so bad they're good. Plus, for film enthusiasts, it's a telling window into the cinematic experimentation of an era marked by its freedom from norms.

'Erzsebet Bathory' is a portrait of the sixteenth-century countess who allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins, while 'Lucrezia Borgia' concerns an incestuous fifteenth-century orgy involving Lucrezia, her brother, and her father the Pope.
