In fact, his performance is par for the course for porn films and there is no indication he possessed any admirable skills outside of the boudoir. What set Tobalina's films apart was the fact that he at least tried to instill some quality and occasional social messages into what was otherwise undistinguished fare. Both of the movies have a common theme in that they star one William Margold, who apparently was quite influential in the adult film industry of the 1980s and is still appearing in sleazy movies today even though he is in his seventies. The most enjoyable aspect of the presentation is the recent interview with William Margold on a commentary track. Here, while still in costume, they resume the orgy. The transfers of both features look very good with vibrant colors and enough original film stock grain to make you nostalgic for the era.
. Shot in 1982, it's a quickie that features a lot of major stars from the industry including Ron Jeremy, Jamie Gillis. Within a few years some of the best-known televangelists would be brought down in their own sex scandals. He does indulge in some other sexual activities with her that are entirely for his satisfaction. Margold may indeed be a blowhard but he makes for an entertaining commentator.
You have to admire Vinegar Syndrome for creating some value-added content that is both funny and insightful because it gives you an idea of what the adult film industry was like from the viewpoint of one of its veterans. The film is played entirely for laughs and is therefore about as erotic as a dip in a pool of ice water. Jerry's oldest daughter, Dora Tamara Longley does the same with her teenage friends because dad won't allow her to date anyone. It's also quite eye-opening to listen to Margold give the play-by-play for his on-screen antics and to provide opinions about his personal techniques for self-pleasure. Among these releases is a Tobalina double feature that he directed under one of his alter ego names, Troy Benny. Sharon Mitchell and John Holmes. His wife Rita Ricardo is frustrated that the Rev won't indulge in intercourse with her because he believes the act is only for procreation.
The effectiveness of that strategy seems to be dubious, at best. Meanwhile, the youngest daughter, Lucy Marguerite Nuit is also finding it hard to deal with her raging hormones. Margold describes himself as a blowhard and its difficult to take issue with him. The therapy works as both patients join in the action. From the late 1960s through the late 1980s, Tobalina ground out dozens of grind house porn flicks and, no fool he, appeared in any number of them as well, though often not in the sex scenes. He is also a social activist, having founded the Free Speech Coalition and established a charity to look after down-and-out veterans of the porn industry. Jerry is very much a family man, but it's probably not the kind of family most of us could relate to.
What Lucy and no one else in the family knows is that her father is Madame Blanche's best customer. Everyone is getting it on while attired in crazy costumes when a phone call alerts them that a friend William Margold and his wife have been injured in a skiing accident and they are both in the hospital. He also rails against the fact that the version they are watching is missing key sequences, only to have him proven wrong when they turn up later. In fact, he was a bit ahead of his time. Margold, like most of the leading men in this peculiar branch of the film industry, was probably chosen more for his physical attributes than his acting abilities, but he seems to think that his work here is top-notch both.
Regarding stock footage in the film of real life audiences at televangelist events, Margold chuckles and wonders if they ever knew they would end up in a porn film. Deciding to provide the kind of bedside companionship that no doctor would, they all barge into the hospital suite where Margold and his wife are being treated. Jerry, a charismatic preacher who rips off the suckers in his audience by indulging in the usual fire-and-brimstone sermons. She asks for- and receives- her mother's permission to adopt a disguise and seek work in the local bordello that is run by Madame Blanche Lina Spencer. . .
