    42nd Street Forever: The Peepshow Collection Volume 26 – Movie Review:

    Twenty-six volumes strong and Impulse Pictures’ 42nd Street Forever: The Peepshow Collection series shows no signs of slowing down, and for fans of vintage 8mm smut, that’s a good thing indeed. Here’s a look at the latest collection of vintage loops that they’ve provided on DVD for your enjoyment.

    BARTENDER, MAKE ME A DOUBLE: First up, a lovely blonde lady shows up at a bar – this bar is clearly in some guy’s basement. He fixes her a drink, presumably a double but we don’t really know for sure. He turns up the music and we spot a plethora of bowling trophies in the background. They move to the couch and start making out. This basement is fucking pimped out! Wood paneling, tiki masks on the wall and a boss green couch on which our bartender goes down. She’s nice enough to respond in kind, then they have sex. His moustache is weak, it’s not good at all. She’s cute though.

    PANTOMIME PUSSY: Some hardworking guy is relaxing on his couch and reading the latest issue of Playboy. He’s got a plaid shirt on and wears a nice wristwatch, so we know he’s a man of wealth and taste. We also know he’s horny! When he passes out, he’s woken up by some girl in fucking mime makeup! It’s kind of horrifying, she sticks her tongue out I guess to suggest it’s blowjob time, and she claps her hands a lot. Fucking mimes, man. Fucking mimes. Literally in this case I guess. At any rate, he gets her naked and they go at it. She’s got a tattoo on her ass that looks like a tree branch or maybe a weird stick figure – in fact, it kind of looks like ECK from The Outer Limits, so let’s go with that. She also has a massive scar in the middle of her chest above her navel. Oddly enough, her wristwatch looks like it might match his. If it’s wrong to laugh when the tip of his knob rubs the mime makeup off of her nose, then I don’t want to be right.

    JINX: Some dude is hammering something into a fireplace. It’s kind of tough to tell what he’s doing of why, but let’s just assume it’s important construction work. Two feet away from him sits an attractive young blonde woman in a skimpy outfit, holding a cocktail. Maybe a rum and coke. While he hammes away, she rubs herself and then plays footsie with him. Now thoroughly distracted from the task at hand, he winds with a mouthful of tit and things escalate quickly from there. Before you know it, they’re having what looks like pretty enjoyable sex. No really noteworthy furnishings in this one, but the shag carpet is kind of neat and they have some nice plants, but it looks like they need to be watered. This guy needs to take better care of his plants. I assume it’s his place, but then maybe the pretty drunken blonde hired him to hammer things in the fireplace. Who knows. This one is a bit more mysterious than the other loops.

    ANAL FRIENDS: It’s always nice to have friends, but with anal friends specifically you have to be careful because they will try and fuck you up the ass. Case in point, this loop which begins with a dark haired lady cramming a large phallus up her bum while a shaggy looking guy in a black sweater watches her and whacks off in a rocking chair. Some very loud floral wall paper adorns the walls. She gets existed and blows him, then they strip and he repays the debt he now clearly owes her. After a bit of that, he proves his anal friendship to her and she seems quite pleased with the results.

    A PLAN TO BE RAMMED: Much like it’s good to have friends, it’s also good to have a plan, but if your plan is to be rammed, be careful. That’s the lesson learned from this loop, which starts off with a woman having tea. She’s got impressive legs. Outside, a van pulls up. Is the plan to be rammed by the man in the van? Let’s find out! The man in the van is Ron Jeremy so yeah, the odds are pretty good. She plays with her tits and he walks in on her, delivering a package. That’s not a euphemism yet, but it will be in a few seconds when he delivers her his package and proceeds to ram her. This doesn’t actually appear to have been planned at all. I mean, it was in that the director got actors to do this but in terms of the story we’re being told, the ramming seems pretty spontaneous. When she signs for the package, instead of writing her name she writes ‘SEX’ and then she blows him. They go inside, have sex, and Ron being Ron rocks some knee high tube socks.

    ANAL PARTY: If you were going to have an anal party would you invite your anal friends? That’s make sense. When this loops starts, a woman is masturbating. The camera pulls back and she’s not alone, but with two dues and a woman. It looks like this anal party is about to get started and we’ve arrived just in time. The girls go at it first and as the camera pulls back we realize that the girl who was masturbating is Vanessa Del Rio, so that’s rad. Anyway, they have an orgy, which is a type of party, and there’s some anal. There’s also a fucking huge lamp on the table beside the couch that looks like it would kill you if it fell over.

    COCKTEASING ANAL: A guy with a moustache sits in a Lay-Z-Boy recliner, or at least a good knock off, I can’t tell if it’s an original or not. Anyway, two lovely ladies, one of whom is Candida Royalle, take his wang out and go to town on him. He didn’t even have to ask, they just did it. Then everyone gets naked, more or less. The girls do leave some lingerie on. The point is, they’re exposed enough that sex isn’t a problem, so they have a pretty rad three-way that starts on that comfy looking chair but soon moves to some boss shag carpet in front of a fireplace. The end. They didn’t really tease him at all, they sort of attacked him, but whatever. He seemed fine with it and he does get that blonde from the backdoor so the title isn’t complete bullshit.

    SERENA AT WORK: This one is like a movie within a movie! We’re situated behind a camera man who is filming a chubby guy plowing away at a women while another woman, wearing some sort of weird red headdress, rubs her breasts. Anyway, the woman with the headdress on is Serena and clearly, given that she’s a porn star, she’s at work. The dude finishes really early so he’s walked off the set while the girls decide they want more, at which point they have rad lesbian sex. Serena also sports some neon pink stockings, which is quite fashionable. The other girl looks a bit like Karen Black but isn’t. It’d be funny if it were though. Then the camera man comes in and they fuck him but he doesn’t last very long either and then it ends.

    ECSTASY GIRLS: Herschel Savage has got his mouth glued to a cute blonde’s mouth when this loop starts. He’s also wearing suspenders. He gropes her and they do the foreplay thing for a bit, and somewhat predictably that turns into oral but then, surprise, another girl walks in! This is called Ecstasy Girls, not Ecstasy Girl. The blonde girl in this loop looks like Tawny Pearl, or Sue Pearlman if you prefer. Anyway, they have a three-way on the couch. Also on the couch is are two giant inflatable pillows, one yellow and one red. They’re really big. At one point while Herschel is doing the brunette from behind it looks like he hits his head on a nearby plant.

    INCEST SISTER/SISTER: The opening shot is in a football field – THE CITY OF MIAMI WELCOMES YOU TO THE ORANGE BOWL it says. A hot chick walks across the field and meets a guy with brown shoes. They head inside into a room with mirrored tiles all over the wall – it’s like they’ve been transported from a football stadium to the future! Here, in this future, he gets her naked and screws her. She has big boobs and buck teeth. Then another girl shows up, probably her sister if the title is anything to go by. This gal is blonde and her teeth are just fine. They all make out and have sex and then they kick buddy aside and go at it together for a bit before it ends. Call me old fashioned but I don’t think sisters should be licking one another’s buttholes – tisk, tisk, ladies!

    A LADY’S LADY: This one starts off with a lady on a balcony looking at some trees. It's Cara Lotta and she’s not wearing much. She struts about and catches the eye of the woman in the window above. This is probably the lady’s lady that the title alludes to. Anyway, she pays her a visit and they have rad lesbian sex atop a large, comfy looking bed decorated with floral sheets. One of the ladies in this, the one with the longer hair, looks kind of like the mom from Who’s The Boss? but it’s not her. The lady and her lady go into the shower after that. They soap each other up and then the loops ends rather suddenly.

    LODGE LUST: Our next loop takes place in a room, a room that is probably in a lodge and room containing two women who, if the titty sucking is anything to go by, are experiencing some pretty serious lust. Bras come off and boobs come out as they do the lesbian thing in front of a nice looking fireplace. It sets the mood nicely. The yellow carpet is ugly but the girls are nice enough to keep their stockings and high heels on, probably because they know we’re watching. After that it’s dildo time and…. Scene.

    FORBIDDEN LOVE: Presumably the forbidden love the title advertises is the love between two horny brunettes with low cut shirts, because they are the only characters in this one. They rub their boobs together, take their shorts off and go to town. The room is pretty boring, no interesting décor but the girls are having fun, seemingly uninterested in home décor but rather entirely committed to their… forbidden love.

    CHERRY CUMS LEZ: This one is an ALL NEW SAN FRANCISCO FILMS production! As you’d probably have guessed from the truly bizarre title, it’s about some lesbians. One of these lesbians is probably Cherry but whether it’s the blonde or the brunette is really anyone’s guess. At any rate, they’re all dolled up in their lingerie and clearly really horny. You can tell they’re horny because they keep rubbing up on each other’s genitals and playing with vibrators and they probably wouldn’t be doing that if they weren’t really horny.

    LESBIAN LOVE: Last but most certainly not least, we catch up with a curvy black chick and her white hippy friend, just lounging around in bed and playing with one another’s breasts and vaginas. That’s about it. They’re having a good time and half way through bust out some disturbingly large dildos, the weird ones with fake balls attached to the end and then later a double-ended one that has to be a few feet long, but hey, they’re not hurting anyone. More power to you, ladies. The white chick has nice fishnets on, the kind with the line on the back that David Lee Roth gets all worked up over in the song Everybody Wants some from Van Halen’s seminal 1980 full length album Women & Children First (the first Van Halen album to feature compositions written solely by the band members).

    42nd Street Forever: The Peepshow Collection Volume 26 – DVD Review:

    Each of the 8mm loops on this disc are presented in their original 1.33.1 fullframe aspect ratio and transferred from film. They haven’t been fully restored so expect a fair bit of print damage and plenty of visible scratches but that doesn’t really detract from the experience much. Colors are faded and black levels all over the place but if the elements are in rough shape, at least the disc is well authored and not plagued by compression artifacts or edge enhancement problems.

    The audio is on par with the video, sort of. This stuff was shot without sound, so really we just the ‘click’ of a projector in terms of audio, there’s really not much to write about here.

    Extras? Nope. You get a menu and loop selection but that’s it.

    42nd Street Forever: The Peepshow Collection Volume 26 – The Final Word:

    42nd Street Forever: The Peepshow Collection Volume 26 offers up almost two hours of wonky vintage smut for the dirty movie enthusiast, complete with a few recognizable faces popping up here and there to make things more interesting. If you’re not into loops this one won’t change your mind, but if you do enjoy these quirky quickies from days gone by, this latest installment is sure to float your boat.
