Total sincerity is Brad Armstrong's approach to this erotic/romantic drama, made before success went to his head at Wicked Pictures.
It stars Missy, who at the time was among Adult's best actresses, and a beauty worthy of mainstream crossover to boot.
She plays the new wife of Herschel Savage, in a modern setting (denoted only by a Cadillac and Mercedes on screen) but with vintage costumes, styling and atmosphere at Savage's ranch right out of an episode of "Zorro".
Tyce Bune, also a noted actor of the VHS era, plays the drifter, who gets a job as ranch hand after Savage fires Ian Daniels and Steve Hatcher, who he catches having sex with his beautiful young daughter Stephanie Swift.
The inevitable romance that develops between Missy and Bune is well-acted, and throughout the film (which plays like a mainstream film, albeit punctuated by six XXX scenes) a serious tone is maintained, quite different from the facetious or careless approach of routine Adult movies. Even Brad's latterday epics seem far-fetched or preposterous compared to the classic simplicity of romantic storytelling here.
Wonderful femme cast includes French star Liza Harper as a famous local prositute, busty Petra plus Charlie as two girls at her brothel, Syren as exotic casting in one of the many Mexican roles, and future superstar Sydnee Steele as another sexy girl at Savage's ranch.
Added touch is fine horseback riding scenes (which look as if they were shot on 35mm film), featuring both Missy and stunt rider Judy Mora. It is interesting that two decades later at Wicked Pictures none other than Stormy Daniels would make equestrian action a staple of her films.
