The golden age of adult cinema lives on as the Impulse Pictures imprint of Synapse Films have gathered another collection of these rare 8mm loops for release on DVD. Themes include something for every kink including rape fantasy (nothing quite like a scene opening with a forceful undressing and the film company's logo proudly popping up right in the center of the screen as it occurs) to a cowboy wearing assless chaps while shagging away (yeehaw!) and interracial pool boy fun. Vintage hardcore fans will love the 32nd volume of 42ND STREET FOREVER: THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION.
Picture quality varies depending on the condition that the reels have survived in but scratching, dirt and debris are common and rampant. I wouldn't feel good about myself watching a sparkling clean version of these loops and since they were shot in 8mm they wouldn't look particularly sharp anyways. That said, the picture is actually quite decent in terms of colors and clarity. The DVD's static menu gives us two options- Play All and Select A Loop, there are no extras.
Synopsis from Back of DVD:
Their place in history is undeniable. Hardcore 8mm stag films introduced explicit human sexuality to the public. Predating every other moving picture home format, these inauspicious productions provide not only a window to a whole other world, but also immediate relief for those not fortunate enough to make their fantasies into reality. Thousands of these underground movies were made between the 1960s and 1980s,and sold in the back of sex magazines or distributed to the almost 60,000 private "peep show booths located in adult stores in most major cities.
Impulse Pictures is proud to present 42ND STREET FOREVER: THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION VOL 32,a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts,re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic "loops" with titles like "Sunrise Service", "Lick Me Clean", "Shower Head" and more. Watch for adult film stars Linda Shaw, Susan Nero, Veri Knotty, and Arcadia Lake, and a slew of unknowns in these raunchy rarities.
