9780060096601: The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry

A raucous and revealing oral history of the birth of the adult film industry, The Other Hollywood peels back the candy coating to let the true story be told -- by the stars, movie makers, and other industry players who lived it. And what a story it is: Through hundreds of original interviews, contemporary newspaper accounts, police reports, court testimony, and more, Legs McNeil and coauthors Jennifer Osborne and Peter Pavia trace today's billion-dollar industry from its makeshift, mob-connected origins to the Internet age. Along the way we encounter porn stars such as Linda Lovelace, John Holmes, Traci Lords, and Savannah -- along with countless mainstream stars, politicians, FBI agents, and more.

Epic, hilarious, and moving, The Other Hollywood contributes to the porn industry the one thing missing in all previous accounts: a vivid, tragicomic, irresistible humanity.

Review:

From the nudie cuties of the 1950s to celebrity porn in the late 1990s, The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry offers an insider's view of the adult film industry's transition from a shady, backroom business to a $10-billion-per-year money machine and mainstream acceptance. The story is told through interviews with hundreds of actors, directors, law enforcement officials, and other participants, all edited together with expert skill and pacing.

The industry exploded in the early 1970s with the success of the Mafia-backed Deep Throat, which reportedly grossed $100 million after an initial $22,000 investment. Featured at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973, the film ushered in the rise of "porno chic," making it fashionable, for a time, to take a date to a porn film. One industry insider described Deep Throat as "the Blair Witch Project of its time." Filled with sleazy intrigue, vivid details, and many heartbreaking--and even touching--stories, The Other Hollywood covers the actors, the numerous legal challenges to the industry, FBI sting operations, the Mafia connection, rampant drug use, rock stars, celebrities, the opposition by religious and political groups, the emergence of AIDS (that claimed the lives of porn superstars such as the famously endowed John Holmes), and the explosion of the video market and its overnight fortunes. Even at 600 pages, this is a quick and engrossing read that is hard to put down. --Shawn Carkonen

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Industry (New edition), Legs McNeil, This book appeals to buyers of Jenna Jameson's bestselling "How to make Love like a Porn Star". It includes hundreds of amazing celebrity stories featuring both porn stars and mainstream. It features: reviews in film magazines eg "The Word", "Empire"; reviews in men's magazines eg "GQ", "Esquire". Everyone knows the adult film industry is a multimillion pound business. What most people don't know is how the porn industry got started with a $22,000 Mafia investment in a film called "Deep Throat" or how it mushroomed over the next quarter-century despite efforts by politicians, the FBI, and others to bring it down. "The Other Hollywood" tells that story, through hundreds of interviews by the people who lived through it. In the riveting oral-history format that made his first book, "Please Kill Me", one of the most memorable accounts of 1970s underground culture, Legs McNeil now pulls back the grimy satin sheets on one of the most astounding success stories in the history of business. Careening back and forth between two groups, the actresses, directors, and others who made the films and the shady underworld figures who financed them, "The Other Hollywood" offers scores of never-before-told stories.
