First of all, let it be understood that I hold no porn prejudices. If people want to have sex for my entertainment, who am I not to watch them? That means, among other things, that I have absolutely nothing against "old school" porn. By the same token, however, I don't think "classic" movies are inherently better than what's made today. With that in mind, Blue Ribbon Blue presents itself as a greatest hits package of classic stars. Unfortunately, it's not. In fact, it was produced years ago before its performers were even considered legends, and its poor mastering reflect just how much of a thrown together effort it actually is. Had they known that it would be released in the 21st century, it's producers may have paid closer attention to what they included. Instead, we get a thrown together collection of A-list stars performing in B-side pornography.

Eric Edwards (who I like to think of as the Dick Clark of porn) sits on an empty set and introduces clips with all the earnestness of, well, Dick Clark. First, is Sharon Mitchell who delivers a brief dissertation on the words "pussy" and "cock", then lends her body as a visual aid. As is the case with all the talent in Blue Ribbon Blue, I've seen Miss Mitchell in better stuff. Watching her have sex here is more of a curiosity than it is a turn-on.

Seka is next, having sex with Paul Thomas and a southern blond in the back of a pick-up truck. Seka may be the poster girl for classic porn starlets. John Holmes himself reportedly said she was the best woman he ever had sex with. Who am I to argue? After all, he's the king. That said, though, I have a feeling this isn't the best performance she ever gave. She does a little standing doggie, some missionary, and that's about it.

Paul Thomas is featured in the next scene, as well. This time with Serena, whose otherwise erotic image will be forever tainted with the knowlege that she was Jamie Gillis' girlfriend. Mercifully, Mr. Gillis is not on hand in this scene as she first goes down on P.T. and then engages him in some stand-up sex.

Gillis isn't absent for too long, however, as he shows up next with Abigail Clayton from her blow job scene in A Coming of Angels. Granted, it's from a certifiable porn classic, but the music quite frankly is tragic. I'd rather have heard the stereotypical 70's porn funk played in the background throughout the other scenes. Watching Jamie Gillis get off is bad enough, but should we have to listen to tortured caterwalling while we do it?

The next scene with Veronica Hart and Paul Thomas is clearly gleaned from that short moment in cinematic history when adult movies attempted to compete with mainstream Hollywood entertainment. It's easy to understand why that was such a brief period. Maybe it's unfair to criticize it out of context, but this is couple's porn before the term was even invented. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's erotic, or even sexy. It's more of a fuzzy looking piece of nostalgia than it is porn. Sex for the curious; not the horny.

Lee Carol, I believe, is insane. Each time I see her perform she strikes me as someone who fucks as if she's been instructed by her neighbor's dog. Included here is her scene with Hershel Savage from 8 to 4. While not necessarily the greatest erotic presence in the world, she is entertaining to watch.

I've always like Lisa Deleeuw, as do many men, but it's hard to pinpoint the exact reason. Yes, she's got red hair (and lots of it), which draws some, and she's got great big tits which attracts many more. Still, I think her appeal has more to do more with her attitude than with her good looks. She's the kind of woman who could send you to the hospital with a smile. Her included scene with Bridgette Monet isn't the best you'll ever see. I'm not much for lesbian scenes, as I've said before, but this one is even less notable than most.

Finally, the last scene in this compilation is worthy of the title "classic." Ironically, it's the only scene in the production that doesn't contain any actual sex. Should I explain? Well, first of all you should know that it stars Annette Haven who has often been described as the most beautiful woman ever to have appeared in X- rated entertainment. That's a completely subjective claim, of course, and today's viewers might make an argument for Racquel Darrian, Janine, or any of the others who leave grown men slack jawed and horny. Yet, no such discussion of painfully beautiful women would be complete without Haven's inclusion. In this scene she stands between two men in front of an audience. And, simply, she just jerks them off. I don't know why it's erotic, but it is. I don't think another actress would have made it as sexy. I just hope more of her movies are transferred to the digital format.

Ultimately, Blue Ribbon Blue is a curiosity. Under no circumstances do I consider it a must have. Content aside, it's just not put together very well. In typical Cabellero fashion, it's slapped together without real chapter stops, and the transfer itself is lacking. You can find it online for under $10.00 and anyone who pays more than that will be wanting his money back. If you're interested in finding a compilation disc of classic stars, your money might be better spent on VCA's Top 25 Adult Stars of All Time, which has more sex, better sex, better extras, and a great commentary track.
