I really love the team at Impulse Pictures. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re an imprint of a larger company that kinda struggles to get equal review and coverage footing online. Some of the larger sites exclude them because advertising vintage porn and copious amounts of nudity tends to get hammered by search engines. It sucks, but it’s just the nature of the business. Hell, I can’t include the actual DVD box art of this release. While we are an R-rated website, the chance exists that the image will get de-indexed if we take the resolution to a reasonable point.
So, why spend 2 hours watching Peep Show reels that look like they were discovered in someone’s attic? Well, because it’s still film history. The 42nd Street Forever Collection has now released 24 of these sets and I still have yet to recognize many of these future stars. But, these short films kept theaters in business for a decade. Hell, these shorts propelled the Grindhouse industry and were responsible for Asian market releases, African American cinema and deep underground horror titles getting out to both coasts.
If that means watching a young blonde go spread eagle, then so be it. These peep shows powered American film history.
