In 1978, Ron Hyatt was a special education teacher who, like many people, dreamed of some day becoming an actor. One day, Ron's girlfriend sent a nude photo of him on a whim to Playgirl magazine, who published it as part of their "Boy Next Door" feature; before long, Ron was asked to appear in a hardcore pornographic movie, and thus was the beginning of the career of Ron Jeremy, one of biggest and least-likely male stars in the adult film industry. Short, pudgy, and possessing an excess of body hair, Jeremy hardly looks like anyone's idea of a sex-show stud, but Jeremy's charm, intelligence, self-effacing good humor, and professional attitude in a business where such focus is rare made him the best-known man in porn, starring in literally hundreds of adult films and eventually breaking through to bit parts and cameo roles in mainstream features. Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy is a feature- length documentary that offers an inside look at Ron Jeremy's life and career, including interviews with his friends, co-workers, and family; the film won the Audience Award for Best documentary at the 2001 No Dance Film Festival.
