Bob Chinn - California Gigolo (1979)
A hustler tries to make a living by seducing various wealthy women and showing them a good time.
John Holmes is the biggest stud in Hollywood. All the girls love him and can never get enough. Follow John through the most star studded and erotic adventure of his life.
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!
Chinn has a thing with women getting off and ignoring a ringing phone. This happened in Hot Legs and watching California Gigolo, it can't be a coincidence. While in Hot Legs, the fuck buddies ignore the call and try to put the call to their ancient answering machine, California Gigolo takes a more direct approach. The hottie in this one masturbates... with the goddamn batphone! Let's get one thing straight. If you have a big red phone, it's a batphone. This is a batphone. What's more... the phone call continues through the entire masturbation sequence. I remember an ex girlfriend from my youth doing something similar at my request. It sounds just like you think it does... not sexy, but you just can't believe someone's doing THAT on the other end! Pure unleaded testosterone right there.
The typical Chinn closeups continue to the audiences benefit. He's not afraid to get face to face with John Holmes' cock. He's quickly becoming a favorite of mine daring to look into the sacred whispering eye of the vagina. Some of his camera work in this picture reminds me of Neon Nights directed by Cecil Howard.
Holmes is wearing his perfect fro and modest porn stache. He's not the sole focus of the movie which is great for me. I'm not a huge fan of the huge one. There are some particulary impressive deep throat shots, plenty of hair bush, puffy nipples and even a bear skin rug! California Gigolo features some of the longest lhabia I've seen... and a thumb that doesn't miss its mark. Add some wine... (wait for it)... bottle sex and you've got a moderate gonzo film with variety and some very hot moments.
