PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—HotMovies.com announced this week it will re-release Command Cinema's golden age of porn blockbuster, Foxtrot, on June 20, making the movie available to customers on an ongoing basis for the first time.
The sexy New Year's Eve-themed masterpiece, directed and produced in 1982 by Command auteur Cecil Howard, originally aired on HotMovies in time for 2011 New Year's celebrations and stayed on the site for the month of January in limited release. Prior to that, like most of Howard's work, it had been off the market for two decades.
"Foxtrot was an enormous hit when it first came out and its first time around on VOD," said Howard. "But I know a lot of people never got a chance to view it. I thought it was time to put it out there for all time for all to see. Plus it's great to expand what has become a tremendous partnership with the people at HotMovies."
Screenwriter Anne Randall's intelligent screenplay is loaded with payoffs preceding the film's countdown to the New Year. It provides the vehicle for 10 luscious superstars enveloped in 13 remarkable and explicit acts of love, all of which prompted Deep Throat director Gerard Damiano to call it "far and away the best adult film of the year" in his January 1983 review of Foxtrot for High Society magazine.
Winner of 10 awards from various panels, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actor, Foxtrot's cast reads like a Who's Who of golden age stars: Penthouse centerfold Marlene Willoughby and AVN Hall of Famers Samantha Fox, Vanessa del Rio, Tiffany Clark, Sharon Mitchell, Ron Jeremy and Veronica Hart lead the all-star cast. One particularly notable scene pairs HotMovies spokesman Jeremy with Hart in a steamy explosion of lust.
"I'm stoked we have the opportunity to offer this classic full time," said HotMovies director of business development James Cybert. "It's one of the true strengths of our site that we are the only place to find Howard's work, which influenced the way porn is made to this day—at least, the good porn."
Howard plans to continue unearthing further lost classics for HotMovies in the near future. The next month-long limited release, October Silk, will heat up the site as the sun heats the skies this summer. Produced by Howard with direction by the late, great Henri Pachard, Silk is the true original sequel to the Command classic Babylon Pink, which also spawned extremely successful sequels in Babylon Pink 2 and Babylon Pink 3.
