Details

Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set (World Blu-ray premieres)


Once dubbed the ‘King of Sexploitation’ by the tabloid press, Stanley Long was the godfather of the British sex film. Starting out with 8mm striptease reels in the 1950s before moving into nudist documentaries, Long went on to produce and direct a string of extremely popular X-rated movies which told tales of wife swapping, groupies and other saucy goings on. He reached the pinnacle of commercial success with this trio of incredibly successful ‘on the job’ sex comedies.

Adventures of a Taxi Driver, starring sitcom actor Barry Evans, set the template with the antics of a cabbie who ‘gets more than his fare share’. Securing international distribution – as well as becoming the most successful comedy at the British box office in 1976 – it prompted two sequels, each featuring more of the same but with a different lead actor (future hit-record producer Christopher Neil).

Boasting supporting casts which burst with top-tier British acting talent – including Harry H Corbett (Steptoe and Son), Diana Dors (Berserk), Judy Geeson (Inseminoid), Suzy Kendall (To Sir, with Love), future musical theatre sensation Elaine Paige, and former Doctor Who Jon Pertwee – the Adventures series represents British popular filmmaking at its most unashamedly cheeky.

    As someone who grew up without the Internet films like this where all I had access to for the purposes of titillation. They set me up for a lifetime of frustration and disappointment.

    Channel 4 at midnight was where it’s at. Or sneaking a glimpse of Eurotrash on Bravo if the living room was empty

    Eurotrash actually prepared me well for our current times

    Is it inappropriate to make an Uber Eats joke. I’ll let someone else do it just in case

    You should have posted it on HUKD then.
    UKHD clearly don't value your input.

    Where's the "ooh they couldn't make this nowadays, it'd get cancelled" type comment that always appears under 1970s film and TV deals?

    Has it been.... cancelled? 😵

    Garbage films tbh. Why they released these in a boxset and not the "classic" confessions films is a mystery
