    "Cecil Howard was gracious enough to allow me into his home shortly after we singed our contract to restore Scoundrels, and record a wonderful audio interview of generalized questions, in hopes of getting some great answers and that’s exactly what I got. We touched on many things, from his childhood and upbringing, his artistic background, his entree into the world of directing films, stories of his cohorts in the biz, and other great memories from the days of the Deuce!!"

    More here (you can play the MP3 of the interview in question).

    Has anyone seen the Cecil Howard produced movie Palomino Heat? I was just browsing the Cecil Howard Commandcinema site, and came across it on there, I've never heard of this movie before, and thought I'd see if anyone has actually seen it and if it's any good? It is I guess maybe coming out at some point in the Cecil Howard releases, not sure how far off that is, or maybe it's not coming out not sure. It seems to be a lesbian only film, and I got nothing against that It was made in 1984 so it must be good, that was a very good year for porn

    It's a girl-girl feature, shot on video and directed by Drea. Also shot in California, odd for Winters since he was NY based. For what it's worth, it's just okay rather typical for it's time and similar to other features by Drea. I suspect it was done when he was trying to expand his catalogue.

    I worry about the shot on video of the 80's porn. Those movies are at the age where they are going to start being lost soon, and they are not being preserved it doesn't seem, I mean not being preserved well. I think there are some good shot on video stuff from the 80's that deserves to be digitized and preserved way better than it is now. Film has a lifespan of 150 years about, but what is the lifespan of videotape? I mean I know under ideal conditions it could probably last 50 years? But it seems porn films are never stored under ideal conditions, as porn films from the 1970's are being lost and that's only like 40 years old. So I just hope porn companies that own shot on video films, are trying to make really good digital copies of their shot on video stuff.

    50 years? Well my shot on video porn stash has already destroyed itself due to it being magnetic tape, and it was looked after. The degradation was awful. Am looking to replace it with restored versions on DVD and Blu but your right it is difficult. Shot on film is fine, long live Vinegar Syndrome but the only restored/remastered shot on video that I'm happy with is De Renzys "Two Women". Am looking to archive my collection on USB but I've heard the odd gamma ray can scupper that! I suppose its always been a problem since the days of acetate film and probably always will be.

    yeah I am unsure how long magnetic tape can last, I know TV stations keep magnetic tape for man years and it can still play with no problems. But VHS of course is different. I assume that a lot of shot on video porn films, were not actually shot on VHS, they were in many cases shot on higher quality tape. Of course some were shot on VHS, but, I know some were shot on better quality tape. And the ones shot on tape, need to if at all possible be remastered from the original tape if possible, otherwise you get a 2nd generation tape, which is degraded in quality.

    Nobody really knows how long videotapes will last, the 50 years is just a guess. I have videotapes I bought in 1979 and they still play fine. Meanwhile, I've had two hard drives fail on me in the last 20 years.

    Most shot-on-video features were shot either on Betamax or S-VHS. The problem with most tapes is that the companies that put them out no longer exist so it becomes a question of what happened to the master tapes. Who owns the products from companies like Las Vegas Video, Hollywood Video, Video Team and we can go on and on with defunct companies. I once joked here that videos don't become lost, they become torrents but even with that, somebody has to own the tape, rip it and post it so already a number of videos are probably lost.
