interesting if not arousing, 3 November 2005
Author: movieman_kev from United States

A collection of early shorts (a combination of old stag films, vintage shorts, cartoons, and films made for the Penny Arcades) is narrated (seldomly) by an unknown voice over guy in this documentary/ Compilation piece by Alex De Renzy, who himself would go on to become a highly regard porn director (his best stuff being made in the late 70's and much of the '80's. The film is interesting if only to see how much porn advanced in some ways, but didn't at all in others. There's nothing to really get aroused to in here, but if you ever were interested in how it all got started, then this will have you fascinated to no end. (well except for some of the filler)

My Grade: B-
