Quote:

The late Francis Leroi, who passed away from cancer in 2002, was one of French adult cinema’s rare artists (Gérard Kikoïne and, possibly, Claude Mulot a/k/a “Frédéric Lansac” might also be deserving of this moniker) rather than a solid artisan such as his equally renowned compatriots Claude-Bernard Aubert a/k/a “Burd Tranbaree” and Jean-Claude Roy a/k/a “Patrick Aubin”. Perhaps to keep matters interesting to himself, he was forever tinkering with tried and tested genre formulas, incorporating influences from world cinema – the French are nothing if not movie lovers – as well as classic erotic literature. Just an example of each. Louis Malle’s scandalous PRETTY BABY, introducing a very under age Brooke Shields in various states of undress, inspired one of his most popular films, PETITES FILLES AU BORDEL, which finally delivered on Malle’s feature-length and nowadays surprisingly unwholesome teasing. On a more idiosyncratic note, his sulfurous DECULOTTEZ-VOUS MESDEMOISELLES, directed under the “Jim Clack” pseudonym, offered an unholy mix of the Comtesse De Ségur with themes and imagery more commonly associated with the Marquis De Sade
