Product description

Review

Bougie explores the scuzzier side of the cinematic spectrum with wit, insight, and often surprising levels of scholarship and research. --Don Guarisco, www.schlockmania.com

Wallowing through the filth and grime of a world that most dare not tread - at least openly - Robin Bougie has offered up some truly nut-busting moments of gonzo weirdness and cinematic nostalgia over the course of his journalistic career. --Rondal Scott, www.strangekidsclub.com

About the Author

In 1997, underground comic artist and zine publisher Robin Bougie began Cinema Sewer magazine, an ode to the seamier side of film and the culture that surrounds it. With an obscenely large collection of rare press books, posters, and obscure deranged movies, Bougie used his geek knowledge, his artistic skills as comic book artist, and connections in the world of porn to give birth to this unseemly but loveable bastard-child of a publication. Printed comic-sized on cruddy newsprint, the magazine quickly found an audience amongst film fans looking for something totally different. Bougie contributes liner notes for DVD releases for companies such as Something Weird Video and Video X-Pix. He has also written four volumes in the best-selling CINEMA SEWER series of books for FAB Press

Unfortunately the authors of this book are more interested in the porn stars and what they did rather than the collection of artwork shown throughout the book. The examples are pretty bad and i know there was some wonderful artwork produced that just isn't displayed in this book.

This could have been an awesome collection of nudes, erotic photos and beautiful paintings - and info about the creators. Instead its repetitive with mediocre examples and info the on set antics of people which anyone could have read about online or in hustler.

Great imagery, fascinating and pretty thrilling in the way which things from the tangible past can be.
Taking the time to read through the accompanying text was rewarding, the essay appears to be extremely well researched and written with real joy + passion. When dealing with some grey areas of morality or so on the author is never apologetic, it is a grown-up piece of documentary.
it's great to see the change in the movies posters over time as well as read about the commercial industry as it emerged.

Don't think the book itself is overly misogynistic - but the content is from back-in-the-day, so you should know...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best in its genre 12 Feb. 2014
By David JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best book I have seen in the genre of adult movie posters from the "Golden Age" of XXX movies. This one, authored by Robin Bougie who is best known for his "Cinema Sewer" publications' is full of text, well-researched and written in a witty and very informative manner.The book is full of coloured plates of great adult movie posters and includes details of the films' release dates, actors, directors and where known, the posters' artists.
No other books I have seen or own in the same vein as this one compare in its textual information. A great buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of kind look at movie genre now gone 4 May 2014
By kgmonster12 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Robin Bougie has compiled a unique volume and provided a real service for adult
movie devotees.Those of us of That Certain Age who can recall seeing most if not
all of the titles represented in this book on real theater screens of the 60's and 70's
Owe Bougie more than gratitude. Yes, the memories are certainly here, but there is
more. There is the reinforcing of those beliefs(as if it were needed),that yet another
Film genre was really that short-lived and is now also deeply buried. Film noir,
Screwball comedies,hard boiled whodunits,high adventure romances,saddle-
burning horse operas,and yes,hardcore XXX features with plots and ....actors.
Those of you for whom this is your particular brand of Darjeeling know who
you are, and are way ahead of me. For the rest, if you have even a gram of red
Movie blood in you,why are you hesitating? Get this book. Now.

By Buffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good and varied selection of adult movie posters from the 1970's and 80's. The reproduction quality is excellent on glossy paper. Along with each image is a short description about the movie. There's no particular order or system to the posters selected other than this is what the author wanted to include. There is a second volume with additional posters also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest book ever published on this topic 10 Sept. 2015
By R. Collofello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Informative and entertaining book about perhaps the most unique film genre in American history, the likes of which we will probably never see again. A signed hardcover edition (limited to 500 copies) was also available at Robin's website, although I'm not sure how many copies are left. A second volume is due out soon and should be equally as enjoyable as the first.
