This episode running time is 93 minutes.
But what about Herschel Savage – who acted in more films than all three of them put together?
Herschel started out in the industry making loops in 1976, and was a regular actor until – well, he’s still going strong. He turns 61 in a few weeks time, and he’s just appeared in Paul Thomas’ remake The New Behind the Green Door.
Over the course of his career, he’s worked with everyone, and even appeared recently as Gerard Damiano on stage in The Deep Throat Sex Scandal, where he received excellent reviews.
Yet he remains a man of contradictions.
He’s a New York Jew who’s now a Buddhist living in California.
And he’s a loyal adult industry regular who has some surprising views on the business itself.
In the last few years work has slowed down, so what happens now? What does someone who has spent most of his working life having sex in front of a camera do when he’s finally aged out of the business?
