Following up his massively successful Deep Throat, director Gerard Damiano unleashed what many regard as the quintessential erotic film. This bold, daring and eye-opening exploration into one woman's sexual dark side exposed the artistic potential of the adult film while maintaining the highest level of eroticism. Remastered, restored and reborn, this erotic masterpiece is proudly presented for its 40 year anniversary by VCX.
If there are two classic adult movies that every porn fan has seen, they'd have to be Deep Throat and The Devil in Miss Jones—and likely, just about every porn fan owns a VHS or DVD copy of each. So why purchase The Devil in Miss Jones 40th Anniversary Definitive Collector's Edition?
Very simple: There's never been a better-looking copy of this movie outside of its original showing in theaters. The film has been completely remastered for this DVD, and the image is now flawless: Vibrant, well-saturated colors and not an errant line or speck to mar viewing enjoyment. And if you want to see how poorly some previously released versions of this movie have looked, check out its original trailer on disc two of this package.
But if that's not enough reason to own this Collector's Edition, give a listen to the audio commentary by director Gerard Damiano, who not only talks about his decisions regarding every important shot in the film, but also relates what life was like in the fledgling porn industry circa 1972, comments on how the film changed society's view of sexually explicit films, and discusses his own battle to get a share of the film's incredible profits.
Still not convinced? How about a half-hour interview with star Georgina Spelvin, recalling her career before Devil, how she became involved in the project, and her fond memories of several of her co-stars? Add in a softcore version of the feature, a photo gallery and some classic trailers, and this may be the best buy on store shelves today.
