Love the photo of Sharon recording in the studio – fantastic!
^ It really is fabulous. Thanks so much to RR and Sharon for sharing all of these!
It wouldn’t be Sunday without the latest from TRR!
Best resource on the subject possible.
The photos of all those legends together (Sharon, Seka, Gloria, Sharon M., Eric, Marilyn, etc.) left me ga-ga.
i worked with sharon in “a passage thru pamela”…… she was great fun and in scenes of unparallelled frankness, shocking revelations, and unspeakable depravity, she excelled…..people are still talking about the legendary”slow boat to tuna town”sequence!
Mr. Amero, I only recently found out that you were the Director of “A Passage Thru Pamela”, under the name ‘Leslie Brooks’. Just wanted to say that you did a wonderful job, as did the cast. This film was most intriguing in it’s treatment of the title character. Transgender woman in mainstream adult films can best be described as the rodeo clowns of porn. The discovery of a transsexual’s ‘secret’ is usually a humorous moment in the film, with the shocked male actor fleeing (Ivory Essex in ‘Corrupt Desires’ and ‘L’Amour’). In ‘Pamela’, this moment is treated with greater sensitivity and sensuality. Sharon Kane’s reaction – discovery/horror/rejection/remorse/seduction and her acting in the scene with Pamela were first rate! This scene rightly deserved the awards it won.
Mainstream Hollywood tackled this years later, with “The Crying Game”. But your film was their first!
Look forward to reading your book.
Note to self-must find Pretty Peaches on interweb tubes. Sharon is hotter than an ocean freighter full of habanero peppers still to this day!
Is that Megan Leigh with her in the photo with the sexy purple hand pointing at her breasts? !
Two of the hottest women ever in porn right there.
I was born in 1976.
I first saw sharon in a 1988 film called “the perils of paula” yes i was just 12 years old !
We had all started secondary school and i had an old satellite decoder for a channel called filmnet at the time.
I would record adult films on 4 hour tapes and sell em at school call that the entrepreneur in me ?
Sharons pod cast was amazing its an era which i find amazing and interesting including the whole adult film business.
These stars have feelings and lifes and its nice to hear storys of a forgotten era.
I would willingly sit and just drink tea and listen to her life storys of forgotten memorys
A true legend in and out of the adult film industry.
All the best Sharon Kane x
