View Full Version : Dozen Best Triple X
02-13-2005, 03:01 AM
So what are the twelve best DVDs featuring shot-on-film 70s/80s porn in terms of: 1) content; 2) stars featured; and 3) picture/sound quality? (...I don't mean to suggest separate listings for each area, but the twelve best once all the above are factored together...)
These can be either features or compilations...

Oh yeah, thanks in advance!

That’s actually quite a difficult question because there’s no particular correlation between the quality of the movie and the quality of the disk. Some of the best movies of that era – for example, Through The Looking Glass and The Story Of Joanna – are available in very poor editions, so the top twelve will vary considerably depending on how much weight you attribute to the different criteria. Personally, I’ve come to accept the shoddy presentation of classic movies: I bemoan the incorrect framing from time to time, but would tend to choose a quality movie over a quality presentation.
The best presentation of a triple-x movie is The Image, from Synapse, but it's debatable as to whether or not that warrents inclusion here . Franco's Doriana Grey is another movie to have received a beautiful release, but defies simple classification. The Alpha France releases tend to stand head and shoulders above their American counterparts, at least in terms of presentation. Beyond that, we enter the realms of compromise.
1. The Image
2. Le Sexe Qui Parle/ Le Femme Objet
3. La Maison Des Phantasms/ Couple Cherche Esclaves Sexuels (albeit the second movie is abysmal)
4. Nothing To Hide
5. The Opening Of Misty Beethoven
6. The Ecstasy Girls
8. Barbara Broadcast
9. Jack ‘n' Jill
10. 800 Fantasy Lane (Nu Tech edition)
11. Pretty Peaches 2
Honourable mentions go to:
V: The Hot One – a reasonable presentation of a classic movie
Bad Girls– as above
Taboo 2 – very good presentation of a reasonable movie
BabyFace 2 – a very good presentation of a good movie, but probably shot on video
The Devil In Miss Jones parts 3 & 4 – as above but definitely shot on video
Incidentally, there's a thread here (http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/forums/showthread.php?t=10552&highlight=top+ten) which might be useful in conjunction with this.

Since THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE features hardcore sex, I'd put that in the top 3 as well.
Good call on THE IMAGE. That is a must-have dvd, and I was also really impressed with how the OPENING OF MISTY BETHOVEEN disc turned out.

Some I could vouch for that are not mentioned:
Eruption(1977)--John Holmes and Leslie Bovee and shot in Hawaii
Defiance(1974)--A good S&M film
Naked Came the Stranger(1975)--Underrated Metzger/Paris effort
3 AM(1975)--Good Georgina Spelvin drama
Amanda By Night(1981)--Good film, vid quality wise a little weaker than the above
Autobiography of A Flea(1976, Mitchell Brothers DVD)--Another under-rated effort with a good cast, also the best film the Mitchells were ever involved with--Good transfer
Insatiable(1980)--Marilyn Chambers first porn comeback, she has a sex scene with John Holmes and video quality is good.
