Edits, blank screens and fade outs were used to keep some dialogue in, but nudity and sex out in one version of the movie. The softcore (theatrical) version appears in the limited 2-disc DVD edition of Wonderland. VCA Interactive released a hardcore version of "Wadd" separately in a special edition DVD in 2002.

This is an extremely fascinating biography/ documentary about John Holmes featuring entertaining interviews with such notable people as Paul Thomas Anderson, Al Goldstien, Ron Coen, and leading actresses of the Golden Age of pornography. The best interviews in my opinion would be Al Goldstein and Bill Amerson who both seems honest and say some hilarious stuff. Also seeing clips of Holmes movies is always fun. Pretty much every aspect of his life is covered here and every facet of them is endlessly intriguing.both And it helps to separate some of the facts from some of the BS.
