Henri Pachard, USA, 1984, Vinegar Syndrome, XXX

Part of Vinegar Syndrome’s extraordinary archive of vintage XXX films.

Directed by Henri Pachard (BABYLON PINK), MATINEE IDOL is a glamorously mounted hardcore romantic comedy co-starring Colleen Brennan, Kay Parker, Tigr, Angel and many more of the Eighties’ biggest sex stars. Produced and written by the legendary David F. Friedman (BLOOD FEAST), it’s also a funny, touching and unbelievably sensual story of making it in Hollywood.

Erotic film stars Lance Hardy and Linda Hand (John Leslie and Jesie St. James) have hit the breaking point in both their careers and their off-screen relationship. Neither can accept the success of the other, as their egos continually clash on the set of their latest production. Unable to resolve their differences, they go their separate ways, each hoping to outdo the other with their sexual conquests.
