Review by

This film introduces us to the young and vivacious Long Jeanne Silver, a fledgling porn starlet who declares herself to be "handicapped and horny." As a result of a birth defect, Jeanne's left leg ends not with a foot but rather a vaguely phallic stump that tapers off below her knee, which she uses to penetrate a variety of partners in this peculiar hardcore feature. It's no special effect; Jeanne's deformity is real and she enjoyed a small amount of pornographic notoriety in the late seventies, when the freedom of the sexual revolution had hardened into decadence and increasingly bizarre thrills were sought for their own sake. Thanks to the effervescence of its star, however, Long Jeanne Silver transcends mere freak show status. She's a giggly, heavily eyeshadowed cutie straight out of high school who attacks her co-stars (including the ubiquitous Joey Silvera) with a playful sense of eagerness and curiosity. The film is unique not only for its fetishism, but also for the fact that the focus of pleasure is primarily on the receiver of penetration, rather than the more active participant. We see her join in sessions with male/female couples, sexually initiate a pair of inexperienced schoolmates, and in the most surprising scene, penetrate a gay male friend (a sequence that reportedly caused some audiences to run screaming from theatres). There's no pretense at a storyline, just Jeanne (whose hairstyle changes from scene to scene) narrating a series of encounters that always involves her partners' amazement and delight at her condition.
