VS-176: Matinee Idol [BD/DVD Combo]

Erotic film stars Lance Hardy and Linda Hand (John Leslie and Jesie St. James respectively) have hit the breaking point in both their careers and their off screen relationship. Neither can accept the success of the other, as their egos continually clash on the set of their latest production. So, unable to resolve their differences, they go their separate ways, each hoping to outdo the other with their sexual conquests. What will it take to rekindle their love and reunite them as the screen’s favorite erotic couple? Or can only one of them become a matinee idol?

Directed by Henri Pachard (Babylon Pink), MATINEE IDOL is a glamorously mounted hardcore romantic comedy, which co-stars Colleen Brennan, Kay Parker, Tigr, Angel, and many more of the 1980’s biggest sex stars. Produced and written by (and also featuring) the legendary David F. Friedman (Blood Feast), MATINEE IDOL is a funny, touching, and unbelievably sensual story of making it in Hollywood, which has been newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative making its worldwide blu-ray debut, fully uncut for the first time in decades from Vinegar Syndrome.

Casey Meadows (Deborah Foreman, Valley Girl), a dishwasher at an Italian restaurant, has just received an unbelievable job offer: the opportunity to work as a driver at the prestigious Brentwood Limousine Limited. Much to the shock and frustration of its posh, all-male chauffeur staff, Casey accepts the offer, but as she begins to settle into her new position, she discovers that working as a driver is more grueling than she could have anticipated. Finding herself having to contend with stoned singers, devious diplomats, and other raucous clients, she’s quickly at her wits end, but when she picks up a young man named Battle (Sam J. Jones, Flash Gordon), who’s just been dumped by his girlfriend, a budding romance quickly begins, only for Casey to discover that Battle is her bosses’ son!
