Initial Expectations: I have pretty high expectations for Outlaw Ladies since itís been nominated for Best Classic Release on DVD by AVN and from reading reviewerís review.
Initial Reaction: Itís a fun movie with hot sex. I can see why it was Hustlerís best film of the year in 1981.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of classic porn, real women, and fun sex
Who Should Avoid It: Fans of more extreme sex
Audio /Video Quality: For being twenty years old, Outlaw Ladies looks and sounds very good. The audio is normally clear and well balanced, although there are a few minor problems in a few places. The video has some grain, but it doesnít overtake the picture like in some releases. Mostly, it just looks like it was shot on film and handled pretty well. The colors also come across pretty good and there arenít many lighting problems. There are a few relics that appear now and then, but theyíre very few and far between.
Music: The music has a nice range to it. Some of it is pretty typical, but it also has one of my favorite classical music pieces in it as well. Thereís even some vocals during the music. Almost all of it is very well balanced with the rest of the audio.
Menus: Not surprisingly, itís VCAís standard menu. The chapter menu lets you jump to any of the five scenes from a clip of the scene without identifying whoís in it or the scene number. If you wish to jump to a specific scene, you can jump to one of four scenes based on the woman in it on a different menu.
The Feature: Outlaw Ladies follows several women on their sexual adventures in the early eighties. There isnít really a plot line running through the movie, instead theyíre mentioned in each others conversations in other segments. The women are all connected by being ďoutlawsĒ who get their sex when they want it and how they want it rather than staying confined in their marriages.
Juliet Anderson, a very attractive and realistic looking blonde, starts out with hired stud Ron as Jody Maxwell watches. Juliet sucks his cock while playing with all her bits and pieces while making him squeeze his cock so he doesnít cum before she wants him to. Rather than having him eat her pussy, she instead has him lie back and starts fucking him, once again guiding him to do it just as she wants him to. As she fucks him, Juliet has Jody fuck her ass with a toy to DP her. Juliet gets really worked up over it, as well as Ron who pops almost immediately as Juliet hops off. Itís a very hot scene mostly due to Julietís driving the scene and has some decent chemistry as well.
Marlene Willoughby, a famous model, takes a side job at home from Bobby Astyr. She works over both his cock and ass with her mouth, as well as giving him a handjob while playing with herself. Marlene finishes warming up Bobby by sucking his cock after wrapping her panties over it before straddling his face to make him finish warming her up. Finally, she hops onto Bobbyís cock, which is still wrapped in her panties. They donít fuck for long before Marlene gets down to take Bobbyís load in her mouth. Itís another very hot scene that once again is driven by a great leading lady.
Veronica Hart, a successful attorney, gets busy with artist John Leslie at her office after work. They quickly get down to business, with Veronica telling John she wants to try getting fucked in the ass. He has her go for lotion, and as she bends over the desk tells her to stay right there. John has Veronica play with her pussy as he warms up her ass with his finger before working his cock into her ass. Theyíre fucking is interrupted by Veronicaís husband calling and Veronica feeling that she has to take the call. They both wanted John to cum in her ass, but the call distracted them so he cums on her great ass instead. Thereís some great chemistry between the two of them and it helps turn this into a hot scene. Itís also fun to watch this scene to look back on two of todayís best directors working together much earlier in their careers.
Merle Michaels screws her boss Richard Bolla on her couch after talking to her mother on the phone. Merle is kind of out of it through much of the scene, and constantly seeking Richardís approval for what sheís doing, which fits her character very well. She starts out giving him some nice oral attention before he goes down on her. Merle gets into it very well as Richard climbs up on her and fucks her, finishing him off with a little tit fucking and head. She ends the scene taking his spunk spray on her chest and sucking the last few drops out. Itís not quite as good a scene as the ones preceding it, but keeps the characters very nicely throughout it.
Jody Maxwell and Samantha Fox make a trip to a scummy bar, where they pick up Joey Silvera, looking much the same as he does now, in the next scene. They make their way up to a scummy room where the girls wait for Joey on the bed. They donít do anything to each other, instead waiting for Joey to remove their panties and eat their pussies. As Joey starts working on their pussies, they start to pet each other a little before joining together to suck Joeyís cock. Joey fucks Samantha missionary style before having Jody suck him to a climax. Itís the weakest of the scenes, mostly because the lighting is fairly poor in the scene. It fits the dirty hotel room feel of the scene, but itís hard to get too sexy if you canít see much.
Although it doesnít have as strong a plot as other classic pornos, Outlaw Ladies still works extremely well and is almost as couples friendly as other classic pornos. Thereís a little bit of anal, but itís worked into the scenes very well rather than feeling like itís time for an anal scene. The women are also handled a little different. Theyíre clearly in control in all the scenes, and often donít even get completely naked. It makes for a nicely difference movie thatís very worthwhile to watch.

Overall: Currently, Outlaw Ladies can be found online for between $17 and $25 with many stores offering it for under $20. Although there isnít really anything here for extras, itís still a great movie with a very good transfer. It has a heat thatís rarely seen in many of todayís movies, and the chemistry is also much better. There isnít much plot, but it doesnít hold back the movie.
Note to VCA: With classic releases like this, it would be great to have extras such as interviews with people who were originally in it reflecting back on it (I assume you still know how to reach Veronica Hart) or commentaries by people who were in adult films at the time the movie was being made. Extras like this are some of what makes other companies classic releases much better DVDs.
