Due to personal commitments this week, I haven’t been able to re-watch an old classic for review, so this week, we’ll go back into the Playboy Radio vaults, and revisit a movie we talked about a year and some time ago…
So, assuming Ginger isn’t out sick, at 2:40pm eastern on XM102 Radio Sex YouPorn we’ll talk about Ginger Lynn The Movie, a 1988 compilation that tries to make lemonade out of the lemons of the Traci Lords scandal.
As I wrote back in May 2012:
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.
