Pornografi – en musical (1971)

Director: Ole Ege
Studio: Eros Film

Starring: Ilse Damsgaard, Kenny Drew, Dexter Gordon, Bent Rohweder, Erik Sorensen
Description: A collection of erotic short films with specially composed soundtrack by jazz legend Dexter Gordon.

“Pornography” was the first x-rated “musical” to be premiered in Danish cinemas. The title is quite misleading. Other than the cool soundtrack by jazz great Dexter Gordon there is nothing very musical about it. It features 10 hard and softcore short films by photographer and director Ole Ege, shot before and after the liberalization of pornography in 1968-69.
Including such silent Ole Ege gems as: The Dream Girl (1966), Harem, Spanking (1970), The Pornmodel Ilse (1969), The American Girl (1970) and The Jolly Shave (1964), Crazy Strip (1966), Three Lively Girls (1964), Group Sex (1969), Springtime in Tivoli (1969). All the shorts were shot when porn was illegal so there’s an added naughtiness to the proceedings. One thing that’s constant about Ege’s short-films is that none are at all completely tasteless and it’s apparent with his craftsmanship that Ege’s as much an artist as he is a pornographer.
