Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition

( 1 )

Overview

New York After Midnight, a new division of Blue Underground, shows promise with their debut release of Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition. Fans who buy this shouldn't expect top-shelf audio and video quality: the material used here was taken from first-generation masters but those masters were made on low-tech video equipment. Thus, the video is a bit dull and shows some wear and tear while the sound is occasionally a bit boxy due to low-grade equipment and less-than-ideal recording situations. Still,...

Overview

New York After Midnight, a new division of Blue Underground, shows promise with their debut release of Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition. Fans who buy this shouldn't expect top-shelf audio and video quality: the material used here was taken from first-generation masters but those masters were made on low-tech video equipment. Thus, the video is a bit dull and shows some wear and tear while the sound is occasionally a bit boxy due to low-grade equipment and less-than-ideal recording situations. Still, New York After Midnight has done a decent job remastering this material as much as its limitations would allow and the end result is never less than watchable. Bonus materials are limited to a pair of short, poorly-recorded interviews with Gerard Damiano and Harry Reems but these interviews are well worth the listen for fans (just be prepared to use some headphones). All in all, Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition does the best it can with limited source materials and puts together a finished program that is quite amusing for fans of vintage adult filmmaking. It's a worthwhile beginning for this new company and enough to make one hope they'll continue unearthing more of Midnight Blue.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This unexpected but welcome collection provides a glimpse into one of the more entertainingly sleazy programs ever to grace the cathode tube. Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition compiles material that was broadcast on the legendary adult entertainment chat show Midnight Blue between 1975 and 1987. The main focus is a series of interviews with four major players in the Deep Throat saga: actors Harry Reems and Carol Connors, director Gerard Damiano and Linda Lovelace's ex-hubby/manager Chuck Traynor. Al Goldstein holds court in most of the interview segments and handles the task with greater skill than his public persona might lead the casual viewer to believe. While he's capable of playing the sleazy court jester as he does with Carol Connors, he's also capable of showing a different face with his other interview subjects: the affable Reems brings out Goldstein's flair for caustic wit, Traynor brings out his political mindset and Damiano brings out an unexpectedly intellectual level of insight into the psychology behind vintage adult cinema. Sandwiched between the interviews are a series of ads and comedy segments that appeared on the shows, including a memorable advice segment from Jackie Park that doubles as an amusingly angry lecture for the show's male viewers. In short, Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition is definitely a special-interest item, but those interested in the controversy surrounding Deep Throat or Al Goldstein, for that matter will find plenty to amuse and enlighten here.
