John Curtis Holmes: In Memoriam 1944-1988

I am taking a brief detour from the tone of my regular postings at this blog to remember the passing of John Curtis Holmes, 25 years ago today. If it weren't for John and the complexities of his life, feature Hollywood films such as Boogie Nights and Wonderland would not have been made. The superb documentary, Wadd: The Life & Times of John C. Holmes, directed by Cass Paley would not have been conceived. Nor would director Julia St. Vincent's outstanding 1981 docu-film, Exhausted, John C. Holmes, The Real Story, have taken shape. It is because of Wonderland that my John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches writing partner, Jennifer Sugar, a twenty-one year old university student, was inspired to compose the first and definitive book on John Holmes. In 2006, she invited me to collaborate with her and our book was published in 2008. "Inches" is responsible for instigating the inception of "Golden Goddesses," and the circle of life continues on. The following excerpt is from a short piece I wrote and posted today on our other blog, John Holmes -- the book!

In memory of John, we've posted a link (below) to a very rare interview John gave in 1986 where he discussed his new company, Penguin, and various other aspects of the adult industry, in which he had been a part for more than twenty years. At this stage in his life, John was in good health, in good spirits, and was very hopeful about his future. Thanks to Laurie Holmes and to John Holmes Enterprises for granting us use of this 1986 audiofile in which John discusses the adult entertainment business and his company, Penguin: John Holmes audioclip.
