John Holmes Has a Big Problem
From the early 70s until the early 80s, there was only one man you thought of when you thought of adult cinema: John Holmes.

His story didn't end when the camera shut off -- that's really where it started. It's a story so full of sex, drugs, murder, and lies that it almost seems like a badly written movie.
