  • mpho3's rating of the film American Swing

    Part Inside Deep Throat and part Boogie Nights. Boy those '70s were something else : ) Includes archival footage from the era's clubs and parties and "professional adult footage" shot on location at Plato's Retreat. Were crabs the really the worst thing club members encountered? I highly doubt it, but to hear them tell it.... Very entertaining and ultimately sobering.
