Tonight on Playboy Radio: Ginger Lynn: The Movie (1988)

Tonight on Playboy Radio’s Nightcalls with Debi Diamond and guest host Kelly Shibari, we’ll be chatting about the 1988 (compilation) flick, Ginger Lynn: The Movie.  Due to a some scheduling on my end, we’ll be on 45 minutes earlier, at 7:00 PM Eastern (4:00 PM Pacific) as opposed to our regular time.

Compilation flick?  Wha?

Paradise Visuals was one of the leading adult studios in the mid-80s and they had a three-picture “deal” with Traci Lords.  (She appeared in three shot-on-video movies for them, plus a comp (Girls of Paradise) and they used a g/g scene of hers in Whore of the Worlds as well.)

Traci was arguably the biggest star at the time, but running a close second, if not arguably first, was Ginger Lynn.  So Paradise scored quite a coup when they were able to cast both Traci and Ginger in the same movies.  Having both of the biggest stars in the world in the movie was pretty much a license to print money.

Once Traci’s scandal broke, all those movies needed to be pulled from the shelves, so in 1986, we lost those three movies and the awesome scenes that didn’t feature Ms. Lords… and Paradise lost a cash machine.

Fast forward a couple years, and the good folks over at PV say “Hey, you know… if we edit the movies so Traci’s not in them, we don’t have much… but we can take the leftovers that feature Ginger and make a new movie!”  And that they did.

They took scenes from Those Young Girls (1984)Night Of Loving Dangerously (1984) and Lust in the Fast Lane (1984) and edited them together to make Ginger Lynn; The Movie.

This movie is also notable for giving us access to two AWESOME Christy Canyon scenes from her debut, which we would have lost to the (under)ages had they not been repackaged here.

The first three scenes are from “Those Young Girls.”  That movie was written by Ginger, and based on her experiences breaking into porn.  It’s a jokey script — she meets with agent John Holmes who asks if she has a portfolio, and she says she got her (immunization) shots in high school — but personality (and Ginger’s undeniable cuteness) goes a long way…

Things get underway with Ginger naked on John’s desk, fellating a banana and saying “lunch is served.”  He then dives in and eats.  (Who wouldn’t?!?)  Ginger bucks her hips and grinds into his face before dropping to her knees.  Seeing Holmes’ manhood fall out of his pants as he pulls down his jeans is still something to behold.  She laughs, not quite sure what to do with the turgid meat, and he guides her head in to do the job.  His cock is floppy, as it often was by this point in his career, but she manages to coax half a stiffy out of him. He lays her on the desk and drops his cock into her mouth as he fingers her.  It’s a pretty hot position and it shows off her body pretty well until he strokes a nice load onto her face which she cleans up like a champ.  They cuddle bit and then Ginger finds her way onto a set.

The stills guy (nice socks!) gets her acclimated, she takes off her robe revealing a pretty conservative negligee (by today’s standards, anyway).  The camera cuts to her close up, and she looks flawless.  It is not hard to believe what a star she was back then… so the second scene is just Ginger posing around a bed.

We cut back to John Holmes making a deal for Ginger to appear in a music video, as he has her under contract.

The next scene is a rather silly music video, with Harry Reems (who had to have been 40+ at the time) in silly “punk” makeup, along with Ginger with a fauxhawk and yellow lace gloves.  There’s a driving synth tune on the sound track, jump cuts and video transitions that were all the rage back then.  Since they’re both naked, I’m not sure what the market for this video was supposed to be… you can FF through it without missing too much except some prolonged tongue kissing which is then unceremoneously cut away from for a dialogue scene where he explains that its a bad idea for them to get together.

Cut to his bedroom, they’re drinking wine and trying to come up with a name, and they settle on Ginger Lynn, and she plants a big one on his lips, and then after some faint protest, she’s blowing him and he’s eating her out.  She crawls off his face and slides him up in her for some reverse cowgirl.  RC is perhaps my favorite porn position, as it really shows off the girl’s physique, and let’s her control the sex.  Ginger gyrates her hips around on his cock which is a wonderful visual.  Harry then throws her on her back, and starts a vigorous pounding before cycling thru two quick positions – side saddle then doggie, where he pulls out and cums (in ridiculous slo-mo) on her ass, finally wrapping her in a giant hug which carries a startling amount of warmth in it…

So ends our journey with Those Young Girls, and we move into Night of Loving Dangerously, with a poorly grayed Peter North driving in a car while a voice over (not Peter) establishes him as a producer out to meet Ginger… so we’ve moved from a strict comp to the thinnest of a new story.  Let’s see how they do.

(In this review of NOLD, The Fool sums up the plot thusly: “It’s a murder mystery story, where Christy Canyon, who appears in more than just sex scenes, is “Louise Harrison”, daughter of Chairman of the Board, Jamie GillisPeter North is a former cop and former husband of Traci Lords, and his ex-wife Traci calls him to investigate a blackmail plot against Louise’s father, Jamie Gillis, whom Traci is about to marry…”  How this will fit into “Ginger is an up and coming adult film star” story remains to be seen… we return to our story…)

Peter enters a house and asks if nayone is home.  Ginger and Christy are home, having a little fun of their own.  A brief g/g scene ensues with a lot of kissing and some scissoring.  We cut to Peter standing in the doorway, clapping, asking if they know “any more good tricks.”

Another mystery voiceover tells us that Ginger’s career was really taking off, as evidenced by the doggie style fucking Tom Byron is giving her.  At this point, we’re in our third movie, Lust in the Fast Lane, where we’ll stay for the next few scenes.

So Tom and Ginger are fucking, and then Tom pulls out and splashes on her ass and without explanation, Ginger is now sucking another cock, this time belonging to while Marc Wallice is working a finger up her ass.

When we open a wide shot, we see the room is full of people fucking, that there’s at least four pairings going on — Eric Edwards and Beverly BlissCrystal Breeze with Tom Byron (cocksucking, titfucking); Sheri St. Clair with  and Ginger with Marc Wallice and David Sanders (They spend a bit of time FUCKING HER ARMPITS. Seeing her with two cockheads poking out of her arms is not all that erotic, really… but they get point for being novel…)

(The scene is a horrible mess of editing. They end with each of the four corners of the frame filled with a different cumshot.  They finally break out for Marc dumping a giant load on Ginger’s face, but the scene is shot so close-up, there’s very little impact.  A horribly missed opportunity.)

The orgy continues a bit more with Beverly BlissCrystal Breeze and Sheri St. Clair working on Tom Byron. Beverly gives Tom a pretty awesome handjob, while Sheri pleasures Crystal.  Sheri was one of my favorite mid-80s performers.  Tom eventually lays Beverly down for a little buggering before he fucks Sheri St. Clair and cums virtually in her, pulling out at the last moment…

And then, LATER THAT NIGHT…

… so we end our time with Lust in the Fast Lane, and we wrap up with two scenes from Night of Loving Dangerously.

As an aside, NoLD is widely considered to be Christy’s debut.  She made some loops beforehand and did the modelling, but this was the movie that put her on the map… and soured her on facials forever.

The first has Ginger sucking Jamie Gillis’ cock and then Christy comes in for some loving.  Jamie fucks Christy while Ginger helps pleasure her with her fingers.  Then it’s Ginger’s turn to climb on top and they make one of my favorite porn positions – the triangle.  Ginger rides Jamie’s cock; Christy rides Jamie’s face and the girls kiss.  This is WAY TOO SHORT-LIVED before Ginger and Christy are 69ing, and Jamie is fucking Christy doggie. Jamie flips Ginger over and fucks her butt for a spell, first side saddle, then reverse cowgirl.  Then, as the moment of climax nears, he pushes Ginger onto her stomach, pulls out and starts jerking off while Christy is hovering over the small of Ginger’s back shooting glances off-camera and flinching every time Ginger bucks her hips.  It’s a pretty natural reaction, far from the pro that Christy matured into. Finally he starts cumming and Christy’s brought into the line of fire.  It’s pretty obvious she’s not into it, but she’s being a spot, glancing off camera for what seems to be a combination of “Help?” and “I’m a team player!”  It’s a little unsettling knowing the story behind it, but before I knew the story it was hot.

We spoke about this incident on the show back in January while we were discussing Black Throat.  Christy was not expecting Jamie to pull out of Ginger and shove his cum at her face, but that’s what he did, and it ruined her off facials for most of her career.

“… and right after high school, and no one ever came in my mouth. So suddenly, there I am at 18 and 3 months old, and some guy — Jamie Gillis – pulls out of Ginger’s ass, open like  ‘Christy, open your mouth, open your mouth!’ and I open my mouth, not even knowing, really, what was happening, but it was kind of fun up until then… and then this whole load just shoots in my mouth, and I just remember it was bitter and it smelled like Clorox Bleach, it was wrong and nasty, and they’re like FILMING IT! all of a sudden, I thought I was going to throw up… the smell was 10 times worse than my spray tan the other day; the stench was like acid… but that one first mouth loud wasn’t very good at all, and it kind of turned me off.”

So there’s that.

Finally, the last scene of the movie is a classic.  Ginger approaches Peter, “Hello, Mr. Shannon.”  He replies, “Hello (audio muted)” (Her name was “Louise” in NoLD, but “Ginger” in our story here, so we’ll get around it by introducing an audio drop out.  In the filmmakers’ defense, they could have left “Louise” in, but they were trying to tell a new story clearly, so they didn’t want to confuse things.) She asks if he’s hungry and he says he can handle a “bite or two” — of her hair pie!

And they go to town on a poolside lounge chair.  He eats her for a little bit, then she returns the favor, really showing off her cocksucking talents.  Then — awkward! – Christy stumbles upon the scene, and to avoid anything weird, she jumps out of her dress and starts sucking his cock instead.  The two girls then spend some time sharing Peter’s peter orally until Peter pulls Christy up to him to make out a little and give her massive boobs a massage.  He then lies her on the chair and lays her while Ginger stand by waiting for their position to change to doggie, so she could make love to Christy’s chest as they sway to and fro.  Finally, Peterpulls out of Christy and Ginger jerks him off onto Christy’s ass, lapping up all of his baby batter (TM Rog).

The final title card:

THE END

but for Ginger, it was just the beginning…

A worthwhile movie to see some classic Ginger Lynn action.  Well worth checking out.
