If you like your porn politically correct, look elsewhere !
Alex De Renzy (FEMMES DE SADE, PRETTY PEACHES) was one of the greatest directors of adult films ever, his career starting in the late 60s and proceeding well into the 90s. So saying that BABY FACE stands as his crowning achievement is no small praise. This ranks as one skin flick that truly has it all : a complete story line, fine production, a couple of decent acting performances (Paul Thomas, Joey Silvera, Sandi Pinney as race car driver Tasha) and some of the hottest sex scenes ever assembled in a single movie.
Big, lumbering Dan Roberts stars as the hapless construction worker who has to go into hiding following his seduction of underage but willing Priscilla (Lyn 'Cuddles' Malone, looking very young but according to all reports over 20 at the time of shooting) which incurs the wrath of her religious fanatic of a mum (the amazing Molly Seagrim, real life wife of cult carnal creator Zachary Strong, taking over from THUNDERCRACK!'s Marion Eaton who got cold feet at the last minute). After a near-fatal accident leaves him unconsciously drifting in the bay, he is saved by fan favorites Amber Hunt (star of Shaun Costello's Fiona ON FIRE) and Linda Wong (unforgettable in Howard Ziehm's SWEET CAKES) who clean him up and then some. Hunt comes up with the brilliant idea of taking him to the Training Camp, a brothel catering exclusively for rich women and run by her aunt, affectionately referred to as the Champ.
Naturally, this fancy cat house (or should that be a 'doghouse', considering the role reversal ?) provides the perfect backdrop for the movie's myriad sexual situations, nearly all of them handled with great style and enthusiasm by cast and filmmaker alike, shot through with a wickedly subversive humor that may not sit too well with the PC crowd, though they would probably never admit to watching this kind of film in the first place. Standout scenes include gentle giant Roberts tender initiation of the eager Malone, their contrast in size providing an instant thrill all by itself, and the late great Kristine Heller (whose life story was turned into another adult film, THE AWAKENING, by one time paramour Paul Thomas) taking on pretty much all the guys present in what has to stand as the single greatest gang bang sequence ever committed to film or video.
