Bruce Marder, a small-part actor turned porn-film director, was responsible for the pretentiously titled Encounters #1. Posing as a "case study", this quasidocumentary film probes the sex lives of five gorgeous, troubled women. It goes without saying that none of the five ladies had ever appeared before the cameras, and few would ever be seen again. This is hard-core stuff, with most of the "action" consisting of close-up penetration. One question: has anyone caught Encounters #2 yet?

Here’s another oddball surprise: an obscure shot-in-Manhattan horror/sex film, heavy on both atmosphere and skin, by the late one-man-sex-film-factory CHUCK VINCENT (While the Cat’s Away) under one of his oft-used pseudonyms. Even more surprising: it’s pretty damn good.
Pretty Anna Reed is happily shopping in the Big Apple one day when she stops at a phone booth to make a call. Suddenly, she hears heavy breathing. Loud heavy breathing. And not coming from the phone but from...well...everywhere at once. All of the other sounds of the city suddenly disappear — as do the people — until Anna is walking Carnival of Souls-like through the empty, silent streets of New York. Meanwhile, almost subliminal images of dead people flash on the screen as the voice keeps badgering her - "Anna... Anna, wait for us.... Wait for us...."

While her husband is away on business, Elain Stone (Honey Wilder) attempts to fire Margo and Carl ( Carmel and John Leslie,respectively) her perverted live-in help, who end up seducing her into a three-way within minutes. While step-daughter, Connie (Adult film mainstay and Farrah Fawcett look-a-like, Rhonda Jo Petty), goes out looking for lust at her father's construction business. The secretary there (Chrissy Beauchand) promptly gets laid off and finds herself poolside with her friend (Cara Lott) ready to take care of the new pool guy (Eric Edwards). The girls' unexperienced college-boy friend goes to the bar (!) to look for advice, and gets plenty of it from the bar owner (Kay Parker), who then goes home and teaches her cheating husband how to get off. She then takes off for the weekend herself, with none other than Mr. Stone...
Virtual reality is a natural for softcore films since anything can happen at any time, including non-stop nudity and simulated sex, because VR is only limited by the imagination. So far that potential is largely unexplored. For some reason, most of the couples erotica films based on this premise seem to be whodunnits, where someone dies during a VR session, and a detective must enter VR to catch the killer.
This time, the victim is practically "Mr. VR," and the location is an exclusive Beverly Hills VR club. Detective Kate Rodger is assigned the case. She lives with her boyfriend and former partner who was shot and disabled in the line of duty, and her belief that it was her fault has made her unable to respond sexually to him. When she is forced to enter the VR world to look for clues in the victims past sessions, she is an easy target for seduction. Meanwhile her significant other begins to suspect that he should be jealous of VR. The film remains fairly tightly focused on Kate Rodger, her investigation and her growing addiction to virtual reality.

Three sisters live in a paradise where men are metaphorically and literally serpents of temptation. Their father takes his three daughters deep into the woods, far from the nearest town. He dies, leaving the girls educated enough to read from the Bible, ignorant enough to allow men to take advantage of them.
Frivolous Senta (Ulrike Butz) is thrown out of her residence for a reason later explained. Owning just a suitcase and the clothes on her back (a raincoat) she decides to hitch a ride. To help achieve her goal she flashes her naked body to an unsuspecting driver, who crashes his car in disbelief. This little stunt lands her in court, but since she has no money to pay for the damages she is sentenced to... write down her memoirs! Inspired by classic erotic literature, Senta's writings predominantly feature her past sexual encounters - presented as flashbacks - up to the point which led her into court.

Upon coming face to face with the ravishing young beauty, Jean-Paul initiates a torrid affair that will profoundly affect the lives of all involved. (Jason Buchanan, Rovi )
This is probably Alois Brummer's best film - but before you all rush out and buy it, be warned that this is a judgement relative to his other output, and we are not exactly talking about the prime achievements of European cinema in the 20th century.
The story lines about a village gone mad about a suspected treasure and about antagonistic neighbours and their decidely less antagonistic offspring are very typical for plays popular at "Volksbühnen", i.e. non-subsidised theatres specialising at popular (often rural) comedies. Fittingly, some of the cast come from that background.
What is unusual for Brummer's work is that the story lines are actually seen through, resulting in a coherent whole. Some of the tension in the plot is of a sexual nature and thus suitable for the sex comedy treatment, but that dosage of sex clearly does not suffice for the demands of the genre. Therefore lots of entirely gratuitous nudity is added.

Of the two movies on this release, I'm definitely partial to Hot Legs due to story, actresses and lighting (some of those closeups are extremely memorable). Again we get some fantasic credit music courtesy of Jay Philips who also did the music for Hot Legs. This one is more like 70's low key guitar pop, but it features the movie title again!
A gem from the Golden Age of Gay Porn.
In this film by Jason Soto, The Brothers, a soldier home on leave from Vietnam discovers love ... the love of his brother! Formerly called Brothers, NOT to be confused with the J. Brian's Brothers.

BRIGITTE LAHAIE at her best, and MARILYN JESS in her earliest days (she isn't even mentioned in the credits), appear in impossible hunting parties conceived by the imaginative BURD TRANBAREE, where the wild game is none other than the young ladies invited on a weekend getaway. A record number of viewers welcomed this delight from France's Cinema X when it debuted in Paris on August 29, 1979 in ALPHA-FRANCE cinemas.

For the second installment of my walk down mammary lane, I would like to review as best I can a film I haven't seen in 27 and a half years. Ouch ! Playing on a double bill with Ron Sullivan's magnificent BUDDING OF BRIE at the now long gone if fondly remembered Paris theater in the coastal town of Ostend, Belgium, one sunny Spring day in 1982, was this STARSHIP EROS, an unholy hybrid of low brow science fiction and skin flick which has since faded into obscurity. Even in the age of DVD, with just about anything weird and wonderful eventually resurfacing to face the light of day, this one has yet to materialize. My virtual buddy, the estimable Casey Scott (valiantly slaving away on what should be the definitive account of American porn history), has informed me that battered old 16mm copies have changed hands for a small fortune on eBay. Perhaps the absence of star power, rendering the commercial prospects of restoration and distribution extremely dodgy, is the reason why this particular title remains under lock and key, if surviving at all that is.
A month before he's to marry Carmen, Antonio finds a photograph of a man with his arm on her shoulder. The photograph triggers jealousy: he questions Carmen, Carman's friend Cinta, and his friend Luis who introduced him to Carmen. Cinta tells Antonio the man's first name. Carmen tells him that the man meant nothing to her, and that the photograph was taken before she met Antonio. She loves Antonio and sets out to wipe the photograph from his mind through exuberant sex, but her ploy backfires and Antonio remains fixated. Slowly he finds out about the man, and about Carmen's past. Will jealousy consume this couple or can they find a way to kill the green-eyed monster?
