Bill Margold has informed me that adult filmmaker Jim Holliday passed away last week. He directed over fifty features and starred in over twenty.
The imdb states his passing was caused by complications related to diabetes.

What a shame. I've seen a number of his films, and they're generally very good and lively with an emphasis on beautiful girls enjoying sex rather than just being f**ked. Perfect Smiles is a personal favorite.

Is he the guy that narrated the "Only The BEst..." or something like that?

Yes he was, Todd.

This is sad news to hear, I haven't seen any of his movies, but I have some dvd's with his commentaries and he makes classic comments about some of the VCA dvd's. How old was he? He didn't look that old.

The SORORITY SEX KITTENS series was one of my faves! RIP Jim :(

man this is really sad. Jim Holliday was directing some of the very best in porn, taking full advantage of DVD with commentaries, multiple angles, deleted scenes. the camera work and lighting was top notch, unlike crap like Vivid, the girl-girl stuff could get a little boring, but if you were into analingus or foot fetish, every scene was worth watching. apart from "kick Ass Pictures", there will be very little in porn for me now.

Mr. Margold's eulogy for Jim can be found here:
It makes for an interesting and touching read.

As Scarredgod noted, there's something for just about everybody in Holliday's films. He'd get a little fetishistic (feet, costumes, legs, etc) but never to the point of alienating those who weren't into such things. His films always used legimately good looking girls (and guys), enjoying what they were doing, and they never went into bad taste or misogyny.

His commentaries were also delightful, especially on some of NuTech's and VCA's DVD XXX classics.
