John Jesnor Lindsay - Works


Lindsay’s most notorious productions were his so-called "Teenage" or "Lolita" series of films, in which adult actresses portrayed British schoolgirls in a variety of pornographic scenarios—although it seems the same two school uniforms were recycled from film to film. The titles of these jailbait themed films included Sex After School, Schoolgirl Joyride and most famously Jolly Hockey Sticks.

While the "schoolgirls" who appeared in Lindsay’s films were clearly nothing of the sort, on at least one occasion the settings were accurate. During his 1977 trial it emerged that at least eleven of Lindsay’s films had been filmed at Aston Manor, a secondary school in Birmingham. Classroom Lover starred 19 year old David Freeman, a former head boy, and Colin Richards who was a school caretaker. Upon being found not guilty Lindsay announced his intention to produce Britain’s first feature length hardcore film and fight the British censor to have it released. Although the film never materialized Lindsay was dubbed "the blue movie freedom fighter" by the press, an image he endorsed in adverts for his films which claim "I risked my freedom to give YOU the right to buy them." Several of his post 1977 films also open with a written notice that mention his trials and his not guilty verdicts.

Most of Lindsay’s blue films—it is sometimes claimed that he made in the region of 400—have basic, straight to the point plots and titles. Sex Ahoy features sex on a yacht, Convent of Sin finds two motorists falling foul of sex crazed nuns and Oh Nurse features sex between nurses and patients. A more eccentric title Gipsies Curse (sic) sees a female gypsy attempting to sell flowers to a housewife who then bashes the gypsy over the head with the flowers. They get into a catfight that eventually ends in a threesome when the gypsy’s husband (Timothy Blackstone) shows up. Sexangle and Health Farm (both 1975) are two of Lindsay’s more ambitious efforts, running at over twenty minutes each, and the only Lindsay titles with any continuity between films as both feature the same lead character—the buxom Lady Samantha.

Famous quotes containing the word works:

    A creative writer must study carefully the works of his rivals, including the Almighty. He must possess the inborn capacity not only of recombining but of re-creating the given world. In order to do this adequately, avoiding duplication of labor, the artist should know the given world.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Do not worry about the incarnation of ideas. If you are a poet, your works will contain them without your knowledge—they will be both moral and national if you follow your inspiration freely.
    Vissarion Belinsky (1810–1848)
