Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition

Nobody Went Deeper Inside DEEP THROAT Than MIDNIGHT BLUE

From 1975 to 2002, MIDNIGHT BLUE was late-night cable's most depraved cavalcade of politics, pornography and perversion hosted by controversial Screw Magazine publisher Al Goldstein. In this premiere volume - featuring segments now shown uncensored for the first time ever - meet the real legends behind DEEP THROAT in graphic and shocking interviews that go far beyond any other adult documentary:

Carol Connors: Uninhibited bisexual co-star, extreme animal lover, and mother of award winning actress Thora Birch. Harry Reems: The prolific porn stud whose criminal indictment on obscenity charges galvanized Hollywood. Gerard Damiano: Hairdresser turned visionary porn director, he was forced to sell all rights to the movie - which grossed $600 million - to his notorious 'business partners.' Chuck Traynor: Linda Lovelace's bluntly outspoken husband, manager and alleged abuser.

....And much more, including the show's original commercials for swinger clubs, adult toys and escort services that dropped jaws - and pants - all over New York City and lit the fuse on the battles against the FCC that still rage today.

This is the legendary show that was whispered about across America, but only available on Manhattan cable. Al Goldstein (publisher of Screw) is a great host since he wants to elevate these films to legit status, but he's a dirty old man hitting on his female guests. Imagine Charlie Rose with a raging libido. Even 30 years later, there's nothing quaint about this show. It would still widen eyeballs on any cable channel - even in this era of Howard Stern and HBO's "Real Sex."

This 2-hour compendium of episodes on this DVD features Al's interviews with "Deep Throat" related figures - director Gerard Damiano, star Harry Reems, supporting actress Carol Connors and Chuck Traynor, the ex-husband of Linda Lovelace. I have seen "Inside Deep Throat," but this is more entertaining and informative.

While Al doesn't have a commentary track, he gives us a modern perspective with informative subtitles. There are a few shockers among Al's tidbits. What would be one? That Carol Connors, who played the nurse in "Deep Throat," is Thora Birch's mom. I didn't know that. (Thora's dad was erotic actor John Birch.) That fact alone was worth the rental. The producer wanted Carol to be the star of "Deep Throat," but she couldn't perform the star stunt so she took the supporting role. Although in her interview, she mentions having added that technique to her repertoire. This is something completely skipped over in "Inside Deep Throat."

Reems' interview is amazing for his future vision of what will happen to the porn film industry with the introduction of home video. He is a naked Nostradamus. He speaks of his court case when he was on trial for his involvement with "Deep Throat." Traynor's a weird character since as Lovelace's husband he's been accused of being beating her.

Thank GOD there are people like Al Goldstein and William Lustig to foist this series on such an unsatisfying-era. We all need to be reminded what pleasure-and-enjoyment is, and the Midnight Blue series shows us when we were a happier-nation, and less-uptight about sex. This is a much-needed antidote to the hateful-cynicisms of today. For myself, the main-attraction is is Carol Connors, the mother of Thora birch--a lovelier-creature I have never seen. Even if you don't remember the 1970s, this is a great peek into legendary cable-access history, and true American-culture. It is simply refreshing, and for adults-only.

This brings you several episodes of the long running New York cable access show created by "Screw" magazine and hosted by Al Goldstein and Alex Bennett. The show had a heady mix of politics and sex this DVD released by Blue Underground.

This movie is just a bunch of cable access shows from midnight blue. The title didn't lie. It was just boring. Don't get me wrong, it is informative. There are facts about the stars of deepthoat.

The comercials for the movie should of been cut. 1 set possibly could of been left in to give you a feel of the times. But, there are just too many of them in between the interviews.

If you are a fan of the original shows, then you might enjoy going back in time. The rest, beware.

The seventies was a time of great turmoil in the social structure of the United States, many previously understood and codified social restrictions were eliminated and in nearly all cases the end results were positive. Women were finally allowed to be full participants in professional activities, minorities were guaranteed access to the housing of their choice and pornography became widely available. Unlike the other changes, the toppling of the laws against pornography was largely the result of one event, the film, "Deep Throat." For some time in the 1970's the legal issues regarding this film appeared almost every night on the local news. I can still remember the anchor, a man named Larry Hightchew, recanting the latest events in the ongoing legal battles over the showing of "Deep Throat."
"Midnight Blue" was a late-night TV cable show in the New York area starring porn pusher Al Goldstein, and it was designed to push the last limits of censorship. By modern standards, there is little in this DVD that could be considered close to pornographic, a great deal is based on Goldstein and the other producers ranting against the often absurd contradictions inherent in the censorship laws. Most significantly is the conviction of male "Deep Throat" star Harry Reems on obscenity charges and how much effort the federal government put into a case that was ultimately dropped. There is an extensive interview with Reems where he recounts the trial, the making of "Deep Throat" and his life after the movie.
This movie could serve as a reference work in sociology courses studying the changes in American society that took place in the 1970's. Goldstein went as far as he could and there are some scenes included that he was unable to place on the air.
