Go in advance that The Devil or Miss Jones is more worthy to belong to the section of Large Classics that to this section Hidden Jewels of Mundocine.
For any fan to the porno, this film of Gerard Damiano is one of the two or three indispensable classics of the kind. But keeping in mind that perhaps many people does not he know him still, better to situate it as Hidden Jewel, and soon to include the most famous pornographic movie of the history, deep Throat (1972), of the same one Damiano, in Large Classics.
The Devil or Miss Jones is, more than a stimulating excursion to porno primitive and velvet of the seventy, an excellent film. I felt a strange emotion the first time that I saw it, that initial scene of Miss Jones (Georgina Spelvin), a naked, not excessively attractive woman in the bathtub,. Being cut the veins! It is the start less sexual than one could expect. And turned out to be sincere to the heartwrenching thing. The pathos of a woman I mature (the actress included 38 years) being removed the life without we we know why, without we can avoid it, me descolocó completely. Brilliant, he would say I, the task of the director to evolve of a scene so dramatics (and truthful, few times I have believed me so much a death. The harshness of the images is such that give desires to stop looking at the screen) to a succession of pornographic vignettes of it more gratifying. But before continuing, we review the argument of the film, and we know why themselves suicidal the lady Jones alone to begin the projection.
Miss Jones is a solterona virgin and solitary that grazes the 40. Its depression is such, that decides to be removed the life. Once dead, its spirit, or as him be wanted to call, is presented before a species of Devil (John Clemens), that says that, although has been a good one (too good, we would say) girl while has lived, the suicide is a too large sin and, because of it, should go to the hell. Jones begs the Devil that leave to be remained a time more in the Land, to what the agrees with a condition: that be all the lustful thing that has not been during its life and that accept the lessons of its new professor of lust, (Harry Reems), that will introduce it for the first time in the humid world of the meat.
That Miss Jones accepts, Iran parading before our eyes its first sexual experiences with the professor, another woman etc. The direction of Damiano, passes from the sensitive thing and realist of the first scene of the film, to a language in the scenes of sex that alternate the usual first flat of genitals and fuzzes púbicos, with the expressions of the actors, lending special attention to these, very contrary to what happens at present in the monotonous one puts-removes in flat detail of the porno current. The classical music contributes to give the sound artie that so many films of the epoch they intended to hoard.
Georgina Spelvin, the protagonist of the movie, had to pass its own in the filming, since hardly had experience in the porno. Rolled for example, its first anal scene in this film. Harry Reems, in turn, was one of the actors of the other classic of Damiano, deep Throat, carried out a year before.
Soon, the originality of The Devil or Miss Jones, nursemaid of different consequences became ship it. He will be amused to give them an I review to some of them:
The Devil or Miss Jones 2 (1982)
It directed by Henri Pachard, and starred in by Jacqueline Lorians and of NEW Georgina Spelvin. The twice funny one seizes the lady Jones, in a film less dramatic and cheaper. The history begins where had finished the first part, in the hell, there, the spectator discovers that also he is possible to enjoy the bed. The problem, he is that Satan has prohibited the orgasm, so follas to satiating you but to which you are going to ejaculate, sounds an alarm anti-orgasm that impedes you to finish the task. By this hell they swarm historic personages eternally condemned of the size of Cleopatra, Cyrano of Bergerac (that in the scenes of sex does wonders with its nose) or Eduardo VII, all they lunatics by throwing a race immediately.
The Devil or Miss Jones 3: To new beginning (1986)
It directed by Gregory Dark, with Lois Ayres and Jack Baker, besides them you known Amber Lynn and Vanessa of the rio, in its last movie porno.
Visually it is more contemporary, and the music also is modernized. We are finally put in the years 80. The film has a curious semi-documentary style to the Woody Allen.
Noticeable scenes: we observe as the hell also is inhabited by virgins that like punishment, they are obliged to witness eternally dust in lso that are not going to be able to participate.
The Devil or Miss Jones 4: The final outrage (1986)
It rolled in the same settings and contemporarily to the third part. With Lois Ayres, Jack Baker and the teddy bear Ron Jeremy.
We discover, for example, that Miss Jones was violated by its father when she was girl. And to her he liked! Jones will meet again with its ancestor in the hell.
That I know, two parts they have rolled more than the saga Miss Jones, devaluating to good insurance everything that of good had that old film of 1973. A porno Neolithic, today dead and buried, of imperfect women and better, more real, hairy men interpreted, when nothing seemed to suppose that the kind would derive in which is today, productions of plastic-industrial character with anonymous types of English shaved and women swollen by the silicone.
