Since March of 2014, Impulse’s 42nd Street Forever: The Peep Show Collection has issued several hours of vintage adult movie loops. In fact, they recently released the eleventh volume, proving there is no shortage of bite-sized Me Decade celluloid lust to be explored. As usual, the latest volume dishes up almost two hours’ worth of vintage one-reelers, with fifteen loops divided into three categories – boy/girl, three or more and girl/girl – with five loops for each of these subheaders.
The highlight of the boy/girl section is a loop with ’70s NYC adult scene superstars Annie Sprinkle and Marc Stevens. The three or more section includes Sprinkle once again in a particularly vigorous foursome. This section also includes a creepy loop where a couple seduces a cookie-selling girl scout(!) and a hilarious loop where two she-devils force themselves on a mustachioed gent, chasing him around a pool and breaking out bargain-basement karate moves to take him down. The girl/girl section’s top moment is a steamy loop about a geisha and a princess with Linda Wong in which it’s difficult to tell who is the geisha and who is the princess (both are conspicuously experienced).
As usual, this set also includes a booklet with liner notes by Robin Bougie. It divides its time between information on the performers in the loops, including some neat info on Sprinkle and Stevens, and a story about a mob-run New York adult bookstore run by a guy named Sal. They’re fun to read and offer some interesting context for the set. Simply put, anyone who appreciated the prior 10 volumes of 42nd Street Forever: The Peep Show Collection will appreciate the consistency of Volume 11.
