Cult film fans will probably know the late Rene Bond from her roles in films like Ed Wood's NECROMANIA or the classic girl gang film FIVE LOOSE WOMEN, but the majority of her acting jobs were in 1970s pornos like CHIC '69. After Hours Cinema has found and restored this movie and released it along with a 2nd disc full of sex loops featuring Bond. Noted as one of the very first porn stars to get breast implants, she did CHIC '69 prior to her surgery, but some of the loops on disc 2 were obviously made after. This is all XXX stuff and the quality varies from the grain and scratches you'd expect from such an old source to, in the case of some of the loops, blurry and almost too difficult to tell what's going on. Regardless, this is a must-have for completists and collectors of vintage adult flicks, because Renee Bond was most certainly one of the earliest queens of the scene, and was quite gifted as a comic actor as well as doing the deed. According to my research, she appeared in around 300 films and loops, so perhaps there'll be more of these in the future. It's another top-notch presentation from After Hours which includes a handy booklet of photos and liner notes inside.
