(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- VCX's upcoming release of ''Johnny Wadd'' not only marks the first time the classic 1973 title will ever appear on home video but also one of the most exhaustive restoration and transfer efforts for an adult film. It also gives fans a rare glimpse into adult moviemaking during the Golden Age.
''Johnny Wadd'' was the first of a series of films featuring the iconic X-rated private investigator played by the legendary John Holmes and helmed by one of the industry's first great directors, Bob Chinn. The movie was brought to DVD from a print that had only been shown once using a ''wet gate transfer'' — running the film through a liquid preservative as it is being transferred, making it look almost new because the process also hides fingerprints, oxidation and scratches — bringing the classic film to the digital age.
''The picture quality is amazing and it's really something the fans will really enjoy,'' VCX President David Sutton said. ''the colors pop, which is very rare for an adult film made in the '70s. And it's a very sexy film. There are some great sex scenes. Let's not forget what John Holmes was famous for!''
Sutton also brought Chinn out of retirement to provide a commentary track for the movie. The award winning director, that was the inspiration for Burt Reynold's character in ''Boogie Nights,'' also participated in a rare on-screen interview exclusively shot for the DVD release of ''Johnny Wadd.''
Sutton described the commentary track as ''funny, informative and most of all entertaining,'' with Chinn going into details such as producing the movie on a shoestring budget and dodging the police as they shot. Expanding on the commentary, Chinn talks about moviemaking in the '70s, working with John Holmes and using Hollywood stuntmen in another in another project, ''Tropic of Desire,'' during a knockdown drag-out bar fight. That clip, among others, is included in the interview portion of the DVD.
''VCX is very proud to be able to bring 'Johnny Wadd' to the fans for the first time since it's been in the theaters,'' Sutton added. ''This movie is a complete package, with a great transfer and a rare commentary track by Bob Chinn and an even rarer interview. We've even included two free classic movies in Windows Media Video format for them to enjoy as well as four bonus scenes and four great trailers. This movie deserves nothing less than the best and that's what we're delivering to the fans!''
