Review by

The second volume in New York After Midnight's series of Midnight Blue compilations improves on its predecessor, both in terms of historical value and entertainment value. Midnight Blue, Vol. 2: Porn Stars of the 1970s offers a pretty interesting array: from superstars like Marilyn Chambers to lesser-knowns like Veri Knotty, there is something here to appeal to anyone interested in the topic. All the interviews are revealing (in both senses of the word), with Seka and Marilyn Chambers coming off as the most intelligent and articulate interview subjects. Even more interesting is a brief segment devoted to Marc Stevens and Helen Madigan, two stars who left the adult film world on a bitter note: their weary remarks show the dark side of the business. Fans of Midnight Blue will also appreciate the many adults-only commercials included between segments, including many ads for the legendary swingers' haven Plato's Retreat. In short, Midnight Blue, Vol. 2: Porn Stars of the 1970s is a phenomenally entertaining time capsule for both veteran fans and casual viewers looking for a 1970s-oriented thrill.
