In the 1920s they were called stags, smokes, or blue movies;todayit's adult films. But until now, apart from brief summaries infilm historiesand scholarlyarticles, there has been no complete history ofthepornographic film industry.That gap is filledby this lively and insightful bookthat provides commentary on individual movies and traces the evolution of film styles and storylines through nearly a century of X-rated material. All the research for the book is based on viewings of the moviesmany of the oldest are now archived on DVDsand on interviews with living actors and producers. Tracingan arc from the masks and dim lighting of the earliestdays to the realism andabsence of trick photography in the 1920s and 1930s, the account then ponderstheobsession with close-ups of body parts in later decades. The overview ends in the late 1970s, when the advent of home videos changed adult entertainment completely.
