Hard porn from the early 1900s, and itís not a pretty sight.

The men are for the most part elderly, knobbly chaps who wear curious wigs and facial hair to render themselves unrecognisable, or perhaps just immune from criticism. One looks like the late Frank Muir and another like Alexei Sayle, both of whom I admire, but neither of whom I have ever wished to watch having sex.

The acting is diabolical, the staging not much better, and the effect remarkably unerotic.

I went in prepared to be shocked or disgusted, but erect male members and exposed female body parts hardly rank these days as out of the ordinary. The most astonishing aspect is how tedious and repetitive it is, even at 71 minutes.

Itís almost worth sitting through for the last item, a scurrilous cartoon that is so inventively disgusting that it did make me laugh. But the clips have been lazily assembled, with an almost total absence of wit, and precious little attempt at historical perspective. Its value lies in the fact that it proves that hard porn existed long before the swinging 60s, but apart from that itís a terrible old bore.
