Please...Mr. Postman (1981)

One of the lesser known "Lewis Brothers" flicks proves to be among their all time best.

Angel Buns (1981)

Jim and Artie Mitchell were the real deal, with the Biblical analogy to Cain and Abel too tempting to pass up at this time of year.  John and Lem Amero proved that sibling rivalry need not be a part of any family tie fueled joint venture and no one really knows much of anything about Elliot and Louie Lewis, nor their "sister" JoAnn for that matter.  Brothers Should D

Blue Magic (1981)

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride !  One of the intimate industry's genuine gentlemen, Larry Revene ranks as the second most successful photographer turned fornication filmmaker, following in the admittedly giant footsteps of the late great Gary Graver a/k/a "Robert McCallum" whose mutually beneficial partnership with now also departed producer Ted Paramore a/k/a "Harold Li

Adultery For Fun and Profit (1971)

Legendary NY-based exploitation cinema behemoth Sherpix - founded by the late Lou Sher who produced and distributed works by filmmakers as diverse as Paul Morrissey (Lonesome Cowboys) and Alex de Renzy (A History of the Blue Movie) in the late '60s and early '70s - inadvertently assisted the jump start of the shortlived "Porno Chic" trend with

Take Off (1978)

This magnificent yet still massively underrated adult movie's famously based on Oscar Wilde's ironically timeless The Picture of Dorian Gray, already the subject of many straight film versions, using that narrative as a framework to spoof a number of Hollywood classics and their iconic stars such as James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Marlon Brando.

Bel Ami (1975)

A very liberal swinging '70s adaptation of tragic French hedonist Guy de Maupassant's 1885 novel of the same name, Bel Ami fits beautifully into director Mac Ahlberg's series of similar raunchy revisions of classic world literature, starting with his 1968 take on John Cleland's Fanny Hill (and its bastard offspring Around the World With Fanny Hill

Female Athletes (1979)

Calling Leonard Kirtman controversial would suggest that someone out there actually likes him !  The subject of many a '70s skinflick starlet's horror story, he may indeed be the most universally despised figure in all of adult.  We here at Distribpix believe however in giving every director his due, no matter what we're up against, and let's just say that in this case we had our work

Oriental Blue (1975)

Debatably the most discreet of dirty movie directors, as far as pornographers of a particular prolificacy are concerned (let's say those whose body of work totals upwards of five films), Bill Milling had good reason to keep a low profile.  Like the decidedly more exhibitionist Shaun Costello, who brazenly performed on camera as well as behind, he kept up an active "real world" ex

Desires Within Young Girls (1977)

Producer Harold Lime, the Louis B. Mayer of porn, set out to make big studio type movies with all star casts, lavish production values and an upbeat message the masses could enjoy.

The Defiance of Good a/k/a Defiance (1974)

Routinely regarded as one of the finest adult movies dealing with the murky subculture of sadomasochism, although the inflicted violence takes places on a far more cerebral rather than physical plane, there has been an ongoing debate as to the film's authorship.
