For Men Only/School for Sex (Blu-ray)
Directed by Pete Walker
Before becoming the director of some of British cinema's most gruesome horror films (such as Frightmare, Schizo, and The Flesh and Blood Show), Pete Walker was a pioneer of the distinctively British sexploitation genre known as â€œslap and tickle.â€ As the codes of censorship began to relax in the mid-1960s, Walker was among the few enterprising filmmakers brazen enough to cater to the public's appetite for sexploitation, first as a burlesque club comedian, then as the producer of 8mm stag films for the collector's market (visually stark and gritty, but relatively tame by today's standards). Eventually, Walker made the transition to theatrical films, and his long and tumultuous career as a director was set in motion. An extended short, FOR MEN ONLY explores the naughty goings-on behind the scenes at the Puritan Magazine Group, a family-friendly publishing company that hides a tantalizing secret. In SCHOOL FOR SEXâ€”a smash hit when it appeared on the screens in London's West Endâ€” a wealthy playboy (Derek Aylward) opens a finishing school for devious young women. This edition presents the standard UK cut, as well as more explicit nude scenes intended for release in more sexually liberated markets.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
“Get Cheeky, with Pete Walker,” an interview documentary by Elijah Drenner (9 min.), School for Sex trailer (3 min.), School for Sex alternate “continental” footage (13 min.), Glamour Loops: Rare black-and-white nudie films made by Pete Walker (64 min.)
