The Young LIke It Hot and Sweet Young Foxes (Peekarama Vinegar Syndrome DVD)

The Peekarama series is a staple of the Vinegar Syndrome release schedule. These are high quality scans of adult features displayed in double features format with care taken to restore the releases, but usually minimal extras included. In this case both movies are directed by Bob Chinn, and also star Kay Parker and Hyapatia Lee, regulars in the Chinn adult film world. There doesn't have to be a tie-in between both movies, but typically VS makes an effort to release movies together that are either thematically associated, linked by filmmaker or star or have a complementary feel. This is the second time that this double feature will be make its way to disc only this time on DVD. The initial sold out release of 2000 Blu-rays was gorgeous and this edition is no different. You have the chance to check this out if you missed it the first time. 

You can order this one now from Vinegar Syndrome:

The Young Like It Hot

From Vinegar Syndrome:

Trouble is brewing at a small town phone help line. The girls have just found out that they are slated to be replaced by computers. Determined to show their bosses that technology is no match for their skills, they begin offering their callers erotic conversations the likes of which have never been heard before!

Director: Bob Chinn
Starring: Hyapatia Lee, Kay Parker, Joey Silvera, Eric Edwards
1983 / 90 minutes / 1.85:1 OAR / Color

The Young Like It Hot has a fantastic theme song featuring the title of the movie that must be heard to be believed. It’s this era in adult entertainment that truly shines in terms of production quality, creativity and novelty. This is something you can expect from Bob Chinn; he knows how to entertain and elate.

The story itself is classic porn trope with a telephone switching office that may be undergoing an upgrade to computerized switches that will put a lot of hot bodies out of work. As you may imagine the workers won’t let their jobs go without a fight, taking proactive steps to combat the forces of technology in the workplace. So what’s their method? Keep the customer happy. Keep them on the line and make sure they keep using the switch service. Obscene phone calls with inter office hijincks and few lessons in proper sexual etiquette and you’ve got an office built for a modern day HR nightmare!

The methods by which these telephone workers save their jobs are varied and entertaining. When was the last time your operator was able to offer deep throat lessons to you on your marital bed? Have you ever consoled a co-worker with a lesbian love session? Have you ever felt suicidal? Did you call a suicide hotline that ended up being a suicide “hot line”?

What astonishes me is that the movie seems to balance anti-trust conversation and Ma Bell dialogue, a sign of the time with some classic one liners that really drive home the theme. How often do you find deep conversation about trust breaking in a porno? When is the last time you heard Alexander Graham Bell’s name evoked in an adult film?

Chinn’s movie have the best close up shots and the ending will satisfy. Keep an eye out for the guy who looks like Will Forte. If the lovely ladies don’t entice you, wait till you hear Big Dick’s dirty talk. William Margold is a funny fella and the disc includes an interview with him.

Sweet Young Foxes

From Vinegar Syndrome:

It’s summer and beautiful young college freshman, Laura (Hyapatia Lee), is home from school and bored out of her mind. With her boyfriend out of town, Laura decides to spend the summer finding herself. In the process she uncovers a world of sexual delights she never knew existed.
Director: Bob Chinn

Starring: Hyapatia Lee, Kay Parker, Ron Jeremy, Eric Edwards
1983 / 86 minutes / 1.85:1 OAR / Color

This feature includes the a bonus interview with the man himself, Bob Chinn. What astounds me is how soft spoken this guy is. I always took him for a monster party animal. Granted he’s a bit older now, but it’s obvious that his professionalism over the years is what kept him in business and creating quality entertainment.

Sweet Young Foxes has a fairly straight forward plot without much of the gimmickry used in the first feature. Still the theme song features the line “Sweet young foxes know what they want, know how to get it”. Thus extends the Chinn tradition of excellent production value derived from the opening credits. This particular feature also star Pat Manning, Hustler centerfold from October 1982 as well as the illustrious Ron Jeremy!

The whole thing plays off like a teen Harlequin romance novel complete with our lead reciting her diary in the opening. This isn’t exactly funny, but it does provide a nice framework to build a series of fuck scenes. Plenty of soft focus, star filter and smooth jazz make this one feel less raunchy, more seductive. Of course the lovemaking lesson (a staple of the Chinn movie?) is offered by master cocksman Ron Jeremy in a real muff diver of a scene.

Of course it goes downhill from there with a shower scene, some woman to woman advice followed by yet another shower scene. The whole thing comes together in a montage of different sex scenes between lesbians, some straight sex and finally, an almost essay esque closing paragraph from our female protagonist.

+ Dual Layer DVD | Region Free | 1.85:1 OAR
+ Scanned and restored in 2k from 35mm camera negatives.
+ Original theatrical trailers for both films.
