Erotic film stars Lance Hardy and Linda Hand (John Leslie and Jesie St. James respectively) have hit the breaking point in both their careers and their off screen relationship. Neither can accept the success of the other, as their egos continually clash on the set of their latest production. So, unable to resolve their differences, they go their separate ways, each hoping to outdo the other with their sexual conquests. What will it take to rekindle their love and reunite them as the screen’s favorite erotic couple? Or can only one of them become a matinee idol?
Directed by Henri Pachard (Babylon Pink), MATINEE IDOL is a glamorously mounted hardcore romantic comedy, which co-stars Colleen Brennan, Kay Parker, Tigr, Angel, and many more of the 1980’s biggest sex stars. Produced and written by (and also featuring) the legendary David F. Friedman (Blood Feast), MATINEE IDOL is a funny, touching, and unbelievably sensual story of making it in Hollywood, which has been newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative making its worldwide blu-ray debut, fully uncut for the first time in decades from Vinegar Syndrome.
