Those extinct fossils of
underground sex culture known as stag films today still baffle the
paleontologists of cinema as they shine their lanterns back into the
caves of film history. Here lie the pornographic remnants of
Twentieth Century film culture - scratchy fragments of long ago
fashions, scenes and styles that appear to modern man as antiquated
as stone-age drawings on cave walls.
Known variously as "smokers",
"cooch reels" (which typically followed hoochie coochie dancers),
"Stag films" and "Blue movies", these films have come to resonate
with a nostalgic attraction.
