It's called "The Golden Age of Porn," and late-night cable's MIDNIGHT BLUE was there for every sticky, succulent moment! In these full-length segments from the late '70s, the legendary ladies of adult cinema reveal all like never before:
Marilyn Chambers: The Ivory Snow Girl turned erotic superstar shares her thoughts on sex and showbiz, then delivers an uncensored interracial surprise.
Georgina Spelvin: "The only real actress in porn" recreates her most controversial scene from THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES before a 42nd Street grindhouse audience.
Annie Sprinkle: The uninhibited starlet demonstrates the pleasures - and dangers - of female masturbation with everyday household objects.
Veri Knotty: This infamous cult actress performs "the most shocking act in adult films" live on stage at New York's notorious Melody Burlesque.
Seka: Porn's Platinum Goddess discusses the art of loving women, the joy of facials and the challenges of working with John Holmes.
...plus XXX legends Jennifer Welles, Helen Madigan, and Bambi (DEBBIE DOES DALLAS) Woods, studs Marc (Mr. 10 1/2") Stevens and Jamie Gillis, director Carter Stevens, and original commercials for NYC's long-gone swingers clubs, adult theaters, "leisure spas" and more! Blue Underground fires off another retro rocket from the dinosaur days of cable TV with a second round of Midnight Blue, a compilation of interviews and shenanigans from the eponymous (and infamous) '80s-era cable access show. Hosted by Screw publisher Al Goldstein, Midnight Blue invited mainstream and adult celebrities alike to discuss their lives and lusts with uncensored abandon. The focus on this disc is XXX stars from the '70s and '80s, including Marilyn Chambers, Georgina Spelvin, and Annie Sprinkle, each of whom discuss their sex lives on and off the set in unsparing detail, with Goldstein offering a mix of slobbery compliments and frank questions. Viewers are also treated to footage of stars like Seka and Veri Knotty performing their stage acts (Ms. Knotty's routine is not for the faint-hearted), and Georgina Spelvin recreates her snake dance from The Devil in Miss Jones. Though the interviews and on-location footage (which includes visits to a film set and a trip to the notorious Plato's Retreat in New York) is for the most part smutty, Goldstein does offer the performers a forum to speak frankly about their chosen professions, and even sound off on various grievances. For classic adult-film fans, this peek behind the scenes is fairly priceless, especially seeing how it hasn't been available for viewing since its original broadcast; the supplemental feature is an optional pop-up trivia text track that offers a barrage of info on the DVD's subjects. --Paul Gaita
