Gerard Damiano – Sex USA (1971)
This documentary-style video captures the porn scene right at its very beginnings. The format is straightforward, with a panel of ‘experts’ who discuss various issues related to censorship and sex. Their rather dry analysis is then illustrated by a series of searing clips depicting their ideas. And that’s where this fllick really takes off. The clips feature some of porn’s earliest stars, from shapely Tina Russell to leggy Darby Lloyd Rains. These feverish flower children prove once and for all that there’s nothing new under the sun. They do a little bit of everything with sultry smiles on their faces. Fantasy becomes reality in this eye-opening look at hippie-era hi jinx.
