Phil's Breaking News: Legendary Adult Director Kirdy Stevens Dies at 92-November 2, 2012

So after my month long horror film marathon in October, I was ready to begin to review all the latest films that are currently in theaters. However, as I logged on to the internet to search what's playing, I came across this startling headline, "Legendary Director Kirdy Stevens, of "TABOO" Fame, Passes at 92."

According to the AVN (Adult Video News) website Stevens, "died of pneumonia on October 20 at the age of 92. Although he made just 14 feature films during a career in pornography that lasted more than 25 years, several—especially his TABOO series, of which he directed five volumes—remain among the best-selling adult movies of all time."

The article went on to cover how Stevens got his start in the adult industry, his career as a director, and so forth. My sincerest condolences go out to Steven's wife Helenen, to the rest of his family, and to the adult industry for their loss. Thank goodness that we still have his films to enjoy. In remembrance, I'll be reviewing some of his films here in the very near future.

Thanks for reading, and enjoy the show!
