Nick Millard – Fraulein Leather [Extras] (1974)
DVDDrive-In.com: Director Nick Phillips is well-known for his fetish-driven adult films, usually involving leather, shoes, lesbianism, and sex toys. Lost for years, they are finally starting to resurface on home video thanks to the efforts of RetroSeduction Cinema, who have preserved a number of Phillips’ most noteworthy films. Media Blasters’ Guilty Pleasures cult film line has licensed two Phillips films, FRAULEIN LEATHER and BRIGITTA. The first to be released, FRAULEIN LEATHER, is a real surprise!
It’s a hardcore film, which is even more shocking considering the disc can be found through many major retail outlets! The storyline is slight: an unhappy housewife (who might be played by lovely blonde Barbara Mills, making this her only hardcore footage!) who, while her philandering husband is away on business, has a lengthy lesbian fantasy fever dream. In the fantasy, she encounters toothy skinflick regular Lynn Harris (PLEASURES OF A WOMAN, CONVICTS WOMEN) while running on the beach and apprehensively pursues lesbian sex.Lynn invites over two more lesbian galpals, decked in leather, and much masturbation, cunnilingus, and dildoplay ensues, all 100% hardcore! Phillips directs all the action within one shady apartment, behind closed blinds, making the film even more scuzzy than it already is. For some reason, the film is presented in widescreen, which I am positive is not the correct aspect ratio. Films of this nature were usually shot on cheap film stock, usually 16mm, in the Academy ratio (1.33:1), which Phillips did with ROXANNA and PLEAURES OF A WOMAN, issued on DVD in fullframe from RetroSeduction Cinema. The audio is strictly jazzy library music and breathy female narration, both of which collide lethally in some instances. Sometimes you can’t hear the vocal because of over-recording during the dubbing process or because the music is amped too high, but what you can hear is priceless smutty sex talk.
The reviewer is indeed correct … this is way more explicit than the other Nick Millard stuff I’ve seen. The screen shots are fairly tame …
