Whatever Happened to Miss Welles ?, 29 October 2005
Author: Dries Vermeulen

I have no idea who director "Luis F. Antonero" is, but the credited producer is one "Dexter Eagle" and that was a pseudonym not for the late Armand Weston as was initially believed but for the ever productive Bill Milling - who also went by the names of "Bill Eagle" and "Philip Drexler" among many others - so I'll go with that one.

Blonde, busty, mature Jennifer Welles stands as one of the all time cult queens who made an all too brief crossover from soft core titillation to penetrative hardcore, leaving her legion of fans forever hungry for more. Sure, everyone's familiar with the wall to wall Welles-fest INSIDE JENNIFER WELLES with which she bid her fond farewell. Anyone impressed with that one should definitely check out TEMPTATIONS, a marvelously erotic porn comedy which'll test your patience for a while if Jen is all you came for but definitely rewards it in the end.

Jake Teague stars as a rich old millionaire trying with John Leslie's much-needed help to satisfy his voyeuristic cravings with a bevy of true adult fan favorites such as Hope Stockton (the blonde in the first scene with Al "Roger Caine" Levitsky), Vanessa Del Rio (partnered with blonde Rocky Millstone from LITTLE ORPHAN SAMMY) and the incomparable Marlene Willoughby. His wife is Jennifer, an ex-showgirl stifled by this sexless marriage until she finds video footage of her husband's escapades. This reawakens her sensuality and her love for her husband, an aspect too few adult films dwell upon but which this one takes surprisingly seriously. Welles has an explosive number with Leslie, followed by a very artsy three-way shot in extreme close-ups (similar to the Teri Hall/Zebedy Colt scene from Gerard Damiano's STORY OF JOANNA) to obscure her identity.

It all ends in a very '70s orgy with lots of very enthusiastic participants including the splendid Gloria Leonard who shares a few Sapphic moments with our leading lady. Production is polished, the story cute but there's no eclipsing the long gone Ms Welles, as radiantly lovely here as she has ever appeared before the cameras. Oh Jennifer, where are you now, my love ?
