Nostalgia fans, plot lovers. Best rented as a set: One alone seems incomplete.
This is the kind of material that made the early '70s Golden Age of Porn. Literally. Based on an unused Johnny Wadd script from the '70s, these two features were shot on tape recently by Bob Chinn, an AVN Hall of Famer and one of the directors from the '70s Golden Age.
The plot involves a jade statue, worth a million bucks, maybe more. In Jade Goddess, the long-missing statue was supposed to be sold for a million to Asia Carrera by John Decker, but Decker gets fucked - first literally, then figuratively - by girlfriend Nikita Denise and her henchman Kyle Stone. Of course, the middleman, private dick Peter Magnum (Lee Stone), goes to Decker's apartment and finds Decker dead. And there's Magnum's cop buddy Mike Horner asking questions. Meanwhile bad guy Anthony Crane has the million, but Decker's - now, Denise's - statue is a fake. The plot thickens when Magnum finds a note in Chinese in Decker's apartment, and an autopsy turns up a key in Decker's stomach.
By the time Naked Angels starts, the statue is still hidden somewhere and still sought by Magnum and Crane, and now "Charlie's Devils": Inari Vachs, Alex Foxe, and Paige Sinclair. (Charlie is Herschel Savage, by the way.)
Every so often, a sex scene just happens, much like somebody breaking into song in a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. There are seven (one g/g) in Jade Goddess and six in Naked Angels. Outtakes at the end of both tapes, and look for a quick cameo by George Kaplan in Jade Goddess.
Sit back and enjoy it, and see what made the '70s Golden Age so special.
