One of the best compilations of early "stag" footage, containing all those fabled favorites that once only saw the insides of brothels and affiliated "gentlemen's clubs". The earliest American stag movie known to survive, "A Free Ride" (ca. 1915), still contains seriously steamy threesome action between two commendably eager females and one ready, willing and very able male. The compilation's true highlight is the legendary "The Nun's Story" about a stunning Sister who sheds her habit to make genuinely passionate love with her Elvis-pompadoured boyfriend before re-donning the cloth at scene's end. Compiled by, and featuring new stags produced by, the late great Alex de Renzy - one of the greatest erotic filmmakers of all time, with classics like FEMMES DE SADE and BABYFACE. A HISTORY OF THE BLUE MOVIE is an important and potent excursion into porno's past.

A History of the Blue Movie is a model of its type: informative, honest, titillating. It gives the audience what it paid to see without teasing or condescending or masquerading.” Foster Hirsch, The New York Times
