· Aphrodisiac! The Sexual Secret Of Marijuana (1971) (Impulse Pictures)
The Short Version: Now this is my kind of sleaze!
The Slightly-Elongated Version: After a “reporter” (played by porn legend Sandy Dempsey) audaciously avows that “Marijuana is the greatest sexual stimulant since they invented the twelve-inch penis — and a hell of a lot easier to find!,” we begin a delightfully cheesy (not to mention sleazy) exploit into a previously undocumented side of the allegedly-dangerous titular drug (one which I‘ve never experienced, sadly), complete with a number of hardcore vignettes interjected into its otherwise (ahem) “straight-laced” presentation — one of which includes the late, great John Holmes (proving that a twelve-inch cock wasn’t that far out of reach after all!). Additional hardcore performers include Andy Bellamy, Maria Arnold and Suzanne Fields. Midget actor Billy Curtis (from The Wizard Of Oz) pops up in one of the non-explicit moment (thank Christ!) when the filmmakers set out to interview people on Hollywood Boulevard. Cut and re-cut over the years, Impulse Pictures proudly releases this as-uncut-as-it-will-probably-ever-get oddity in all its grindhouse-grade glory — with scratchy full frame video and 2.0 mono sound. Recommended.
Happy sinning, kids!
