This month we highlight the late Juliet Anderson and her debut film, 1978's classic "Pretty Peaches"
Juliet Anderson was born in Burbank, California in 1938 and was afflicted with Crohn's disease throughout her life. However it never stopped her from achieving top honors in school and then teaching English in Europe for a time. After she returned to the states she worked in advertising and also was a secrectary for a producer of nudie films. In 1978 she was convinced by Alex De renzy that she would be perfect in adult films. Juliet thought her age, she was almost 40, would be a big drawback, but de renzy thought otherwise and what a smart move it would turn out to be. Juliet made her hardcore porn debut in the 1978 classic, "Pretty Peaches" playing a Swedish maid. From that film her career just took off and as one of the first MILF's in porn, Juliet adopted the monicker of "Aunt Peg" and would go on to have a very big career in porn. Her classic films have earned her a place in the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame and the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame. Ms. Anderson passed away on January 11, 2010 from complications with Crohn's disease. Thanks to modern technology just about every film Juliet Anderson did can be found on DVD today. Be sure you check out the work of this extremely talented lady.
Pretty Peaches – 1978 – Considered by many to be one of the very best porn films of all time it featured quite a cast of new names like Desiree Cousteau in the lead role of Peaches, Juliet Anderson, Sharon Kane, John Leslie, Holly McCall, Joey Silvera and Paul Thomas. Alex De Renzy really pushed the envelope with this stellar production putting things into this film that hadn't been seen before. The script had both humor and drama and the story line was fraught with a lot of twists and turns along the way. De Renzy made sure that with all of the sex scenes, that the true story was not lost about "Peaches" as she tries to find out who she really is. There are some laughs, some pathos and drama, but it all comes together in a masterful production.
The sex scenes are plentiful and offer a lot of variety. Among that variety are a couple of scenes that pushed the envelope for the time, but were essential to both the story and the sexual exploits of the characters. The film culminates with a huge orgy scene that has a twist to it. The entire cast gives an all out, no holds barred performance, both in the non sex, as well as the sex, scenes to make this one of the best of the best of the golden age. Do yourself a favor and find "Pretty Peaches" and see what a classic film really is about! —Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN

Cast: Gloria Leonard, Susan McBain, Nancy Dare
Director: Steve Harris
Studio: Gourmet Video Collection
New York born and bred Gloria Leonard worked in the stock market, as a publicist for Elektra Records and the PR firm for Johnny Carson before she entered into the New York porn scene. But once the tall, busty Leonard entered the scene she became an instant star of the golden age. She did less than 100 films but appeared in classics like "The Opening of Misty Beethoven", "Heatwave", "Legend of Lady Blue", "Trouble with Young stuff" and many more. She was a strong sexual force on screen, but after her retirement she became a very big voice for free speech and became the editor of High Society magazine for 14 years. She also fought all the way to the Supreme Court and won, the right for creating phone sex lines. Gloria Leonard was much more than just an accomplished porn performer and her continuing all out fight for free speech made her even more of an icon from the golden age of porn. She is a member of the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame and now at age 72, lives a quiet life in Hawaii these days.
Now about her debut film.
Farmer's Daughters – 1975 – An offbeat, but interesting film about a farmer, his wife and their three daughters. The daughters love spying on Mom and Dad having sex and have their own pleasures with humiliating a local boy. Things change when three escaped convicts come to the farmer's home and take over with a lot of hard driving sex between everyone. The boy who was humiliated returns, this time with a gun and to save the girls and family, but does he? I won't spoil what takes place except to say the sex scenes are hot, hard, intense and showcased Gloria well as she appeared in four sex scenes. Check around and see if you can find it as "Farmer's Daughters" has been converted to DVD and is a great way to get introduced to the talents and persona of the one and only Gloria Leonard. —Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN

Cast: Serenity, Randy Spears, Sana Fey, Herschel Savage, Shanna McCullough
Director: Jonathan Morgan
Studio: Wicked Pictures
Fifteen years ago director Jonathan Morgan gave the adult film world a look at the old horror, sci-fi movies of the '40s and '50s with a porn twist. A totally camp production, it was masterfully put together with an outstanding cast. The settings, the laughs, the over the top performances were spot on and the sex scenes were all out, steamy, cum dripping gems. The film won a bevy of awards and quickly became a classic in porn.
It opens in typical old movie fashion with snippets of coming attractions starring players like Rick Rockwell and Suzy Cheesecake and films with title like Gang Bang Zombies, Death Rides a Rubber Horse and Attack of the 12 Story Dildos. These are all filmed in black and white, to give that authentic old B-movie feel. You are also quickly made aware that this is going to be a movie that not only spoofs those old serials and films but there is going to be plenty of wild sex taking place.
Once the coming attractions are over we get the first feature. Attack of the Bimbos from Outer Space, a spoof of '50s sci fi movies. It's about a UFO that lands on earth with three female aliens and it is cleverly played over the top and with these ladies screwing and sucking every man they can. There are a lot of sight gags, some very funny lines that make this "feature" a perfect spoof. As the story in this film carries on, there is no lack of sex scenes and no lack of humor and over the top performances. The cast pulls off a great takeoff of what these films were like back in the day.
The second feature is The Man Made Beast, which is a take on the popular Frankenstein monster movies. Serenity is a crazed scientist, Dr Shelley with a monstrous sexual appetite. She is left completely unfulfilled by her Latino lover. This also done in black and white until the sex scenes, which are in glorious color. In this feature Dr. Shelly can't find a man to satisfy her, and that produces some sexy, but funny moments. So Tabitha, a female Igor, suggests she try a woman and she describes an encounter that took place a long time ago and it is a very good scene with a nice twist to it.
Now Dr. Shelley goes about creating a man to satisfy her needs and has everything but a great cock. So Tabitha is sent off to find the perfect one and the humor that takes place is very Mel Brooks like with some funny lines and situations. But the monster is created and really played camp style by Randy Spears in a powder blue tux and just one horny monster. What takes place after is typical old monster movie stuff but with Morgans humorous over the top touch and making it a fun filled and sex filled production that will have you both laughing and turned on. In addition to this classic film, Double Feature also has some great extras, especially the bloopers reel and the fun the entire cast had making this film. Aside from Serenity and Randy Spears, as well as Stephanie Swift, Mickey G., Sana Fey, Jewel De Nyle, Herschel Savage and Shanna McCullough among the cast. It is a total fun experience in this spoof and definitely worth getting hold of and enjoying from start to finish. Be sure you check your favorite video emporium and get hold of this exceptional film. —Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN

The Very Best of Annette Haven
Cast: Annette Haven, Desiree Cousteau, Jamie Gillis, John Leslie, John Holmes
Studio: VCX, Home of the Classics
Annette Haven was born in Las Vegas in 1954 to a very strict Mormon family. Needless to say her family thought that sex was sinful and not meant for pleasure. Annette felt much different and married her boyfriend at 17. They divorced 2 years later and she moved to San Francisco and worked as a nurses aid and an exotic dancer. At 19, she came into the adult film industry and immediately became one of it's early stars. She made her debut for the respected porn director, Alex De Renzy in a film titled "Lady Freaks" and immediately became a hot. She had a strikingly beautiful look of both innocence and sensuality, a great natural body plus a totally real approach to sex. It was more than just for the camera, she really let it all go and what you got was the real deal from Annette.
Her talents, looks and professional approach would serve Ms. Haven well throughout her career which came to and end in 1989 when she decided to get away from the business. Today, retired from the business she is a member of the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame. She left behind some great classics like "Barbara Broadcast", "Easy Alice", "Wicked Sensations", " The Huntress" and many more great films that are definitely worth finding and viewing from this great star of porn's golden age.
Debut Film – Lady Freaks – 1973 - Unfortunately after some extensive research, we could not find any pertinent info on this film. Other than it was done in 1973, starred Annette Haven and Bonnie Holiday and directed by Alex De Renzy, that is about all we could find. So with that in mind, I've decided to put in the second or third film Annette did, an excellent production that was done in 1974 and also co starred Bonnie Holiday.
China Girl – 1974 - This was a film that sizzled from start to finish. Ms. Haven plays a scientist who discovers a new formula that will expand people's memories. When a foreign government tries to steal the formula, she finds herself captured by enemy agents. Implementing their torturous techniques, they try to get Annette to reveal the formula to them. Of course their techniques involve sex and there are some really steamy, all out scenes in this movie that actually had a good storyline and plot. A good combination of espionage, drama, hard boiled sex and and film worth taking a look at, especially the talents of Ms. Haven with both men and women. —Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN

Samantha Fox was one of the truly major stars of the golden age of porn during her reign from 1978 and 1984. She quickly established herself as a star because of her great looks, a smile that could melt you, a delectable body, red hot sexually and she could also act.
Born and raised in New York City, Samantha studied ballet and modern dance. By the time she had graduated from school she was dancing professionally , but another calling would soon come from porn director Chuck Vincent.

Vincent cast her in the lead of his film "Bad penny" and it didn't take long for porn lovers to become huge fans of this dark haired beauty. Over the next few years her popularity grew as did her talent on camera. She was recognized with back to back Best Actress awards in 1980 and 1981 for her great performances in "Jack and Jill" and "This Lady Is a Tramp". In addition she had a very heavy duty role in the classic 1982 film "Roommates" once again proving she was also a serious actress besides being one steamy all out sex performer on screen. In all Samantha would do about 100 films in her career before leaving the industry in 1984. There is a lot more to know about Samantha and her films, so check out her fan website and her films as well.
Debut Film – Bad Penny – 1978 – The film ios about a very wealthy dying uncles estate that Penny Hickey (Samantha Fox) can become hers. The only problem is the uncle has left behind a puzzle she must solve by locating a friend of the uncle's named Sydney. The problem is, her uncle knew a lot of Sydney's.

Always a sexual person Jane was certain that the scars would prevent her from being attractive to men. She returned to the states, did some more modeling, tried to get into mainstream and eventually was talked into giving porn a try. She wasn't sure, because of her body, how it wouldgo, but she decided to give it a shot and the rest, as they say, is history. She changed her name to Veronica Hart and made her debut in 1980 in a film called "Fascination" and things took off from there.
She was an instant favorite with her dark hair natural body, great look, sexual openness and her true acting ability.

She left porn in 1985 and did several mainstream films including "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia" and several network TV shows.

Today she is still somewhat active playing non sex roles as a mother, neighbor and character roles. She is a member of the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame and won a number of Best Actress awards, Best Supporting Actress and other worthy awards.
Today, Ms Hart is now in her mid 50's still looks great and most recently appeared in a non sex role in Wicked Pictures "The Craving II". Nice to see this true star of adult film is still active in the industry.

After escaping from a stifled home life, being a victim to a kinky married couple, suffering the voyeurism of his landlady, having sex with ladies who can't stop talking or can't stop eating, things do not look good.

I Like To Watch
Cast: Bridgette Monet, Lisa DeLeeuw, Little Oral Annie, Herschel Savage, Mike Horner
Director: Paul G. Vatelli
Studio: Caballero Video
This review is about Bridgette Monet and her debut film "I Like To Watch". Bridgette was born in 1959 in Huntington Beach , California and would go on to become one of the most popular female porn stars of the late 70's and 80's. She was tall (5' 10"), busty (38D), long raven hair, long legs and one of the stunningly best looking females in the business at the time.
Ms. Monet began her hardcore career working as a nude model. Her looks and sexuality led to films with a series of shorts for 'Swedish Erotica' in 1980 and 1981. She got her major break in adult films when she landed the starring role in the now classic 1982 feature "I Like To Watch" which quickly showed her lush all out sensuality and sexuality to a very appreciative audience. Instantly, Ms. Monet shot to the top of porn stardom. Her performance as the luscious young TV psychologist in 'Talk Dirty To Me 2' definitely locked in her reputation and led to more starring roles in films like, "Indecent Pleasures", "Sorority Sweethearts", "Letters of Love" and many others.
Without a doubt, Bridgette Monet was one of the best looking and classiest ladies in the business. She was a big part of the growing porn scene and kept busy throughout the 80's, finally retiring after 1989's "Shame On Shanna". During and after her porn career, she did a Playboy pictorial under the name Dana Cannon in 1984 and she also would continue to pursue studies to become a medical doctor. Most of Ms. Monet's films are now available on DVD and worth the view.
Debut Film – I Like To Watch– Caballero Video – 1982 – This was the debut for Bridgette Monet and would make her a star. The title says it all as Laura (Bridgette Monet) peeps on her aunt Leticia Patricia Manning) and her lover Phillip. Leticia, who is a Fashion designer asks her protege Kim to call a plumber. Then we have the maid Gretchen peeping on Kim with plumber Mark, Kim shows the maid it can be better with a woman. Laura is peeping on them frustrated her boyfriend Michael doesn't want any sex. She is comforted by Leticia's client Linda. Initially peeping, Linda's husband Montag eventually switches roles with his wife. Visiting Laura, Michael is jumped by models Honey and Cinnamon. Leticia's fashion show finally gets underway but meanwhile, as Michael's experience restored his passion, he finally offers himself to Laura. This is a very hot, very erotic film with some exceptional performances. There is Little Oral Annie at her talented best and the electricity that happens between Lisa DeLeuuw and Bridgette Monet is off the charts as they are being watched by Lisa's lover. This is definitely a film classic I highly recommend finding and enjoying. —Review by Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN

The Bride's Initiation
Cast: Carol Connors, Constance Money, Candida Royalle, Ambrosia
Director: Duncan Steward
Today's focus is on one of porn's earliest stars, Carol Connors. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona in 1952 and got her start in porn in the early 70's doing short hard core loops. At 5'7" and 128 pounds, Ms. Connors was a lithe, but big busted looker with an enormous sexual appetite. From doing loops to full feature she was a determined no holds barred performer and that attitude and her love for sex served her well in the handful of features she appeared in during her career. Her earliest appearances in features was as the busty blonde nurse in the all time classic "Deep Throat" and also another early film titled "The Brides Initiation". However, she would go to be best known for a couple of films she starred in, "The Erotic Adventures of Candy" and "Candy Goes To Hollywood". She was also one of the first females to get behind the camera in 1981 when she directed, and starred in, the highly acclaimed "Desires For Men". That would open future doors for female directors in porn.
After her adult career ended, she went on to be the hostess on the TV show "The Gong Show" with Chuck Barris for several episodes. One other note, Ms. Connors is also the mother of mainstream actress Thora Birch, who played the daughter in the 1999 film "American Beauty" with Kevin Spacey and Annette Benning. Thanks to modern technology many of Carol Connors films are now available on DVD.
Debut Film – Ms. Connors debut film is somewhat of a mystery, so here is a quick rundown of a Carol Connors film from 1976, "The Bride's Initiation", a film many not be that familiar with, but it is a decent film with some very all out sex scenes with this blonde bombshell, one of porn's early stars of the golden age.
In this tale of a Dracula like storyline, a just married couple is kidnapped by the Count. The woman is given a tongue bath and the husband is carted off by the chauffeur and given a penis-ectomy. The organ is then presented to a witch who helps the Count. Meanwhile, a detective has been hired by the bride's parents to find them. The Count has sex with the kidnapped bride and ejaculates into a cup which is then given to the witch, who mixes it up with some chemicals and gives it to the Count to drink. The count then goes out for a ride and spots Carol and immediately wants her for his own. He devises a way to seduce her into his lair. In the meantime the detective is now a captive of the Count and "milked of his juices" which is deposited in the same wine glass that the count used before. What happens after is creates a big twist in the story. Ms. Connors, along with Constance Money and Candida Royalle have some hot sex scenes that will definitely create some good wood. Hopefully you can find this little gem and enjoy this near 40 year old adult film that was very well done. —Review by Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN
