    My heart sinks at the idea of no Rialto posts over Christmas …. but I get it… you need a break, I can survive… I think.

    Thanks for an incredible body of work in 2016. Immense.

    Thanks for one of the most consistently entertaining and informative sites on the net.

    Have a good rest. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2016.

    Eric Clapton once said that the blues exists in the spaces between the music notes.
    And the truth, the interest, the glory, the tragedy of movies exists BETWEEN the films. That space is filled by Rialto – and I THANK YOU for documenting it.

    Excellent retro-ads!
    Reminds me of my father’s friend who used to have a pin-up calendar of risque drawings of voluptuous women in the office of his business. I was instantly transfixed by the calendar as a child.
    And it’s only natural that The Rialto Report would be my favorite place to visit every weekend as an adult!
    Thanks Ashley!

    Even when you take a well-earned breather you treat us to some evocative and humorous Playboy and retro-ads.

    Thank you for upholding your customary high journalistic standards in 2016 and providing insight, affection and humour to all that you do.

    There’s no doubt that RR is a valued treasure trove and the world is a better place for its existence.

    Happy holidays and see you in 2017

    Have a great holiday, with sincere thanks for all you do. You are the gift that keeps on giving year after year.

    These ads are indeed amazing (and not in a good way). But let’s admit the “Hoover” one is visually stunning.

    Have a great time during these well-deserved holidays! See you next year! 😉

    Love all the old Christmas ads, would love to see the Rialto Report do a piece on all the Christmas themed porn films in the 70’s and 80’s. My favorite is still 1984’s Santa Comes Twice, this was the video that introduced me to the ravishing Gina Valentino who had a scene with an elf. And who could forget the late great Milton Ingley as Santa! A true classic.

    My Christmas Wish list for 2017, Maybe the Rialto Santa can make it come true?

    1. Chelsea Blake… What is she up too? She was older than most of the video vixens who burst on the porn scene in 1984 but Chelsea left a lasting impression on her fans. She had a very lean in shape body and moved with the grace of a ballet dancer, she left porn almost as as fat as she started. If she had stuck around for a few years she would have been another Georgina Spelvin or Kay Parker. Chelsea was a true actress.

    2. Melissa Melendez… both of the Melendez sister’s were beautiful but Melissa had great comic timing.. especially as Barbara the Lobster Woman in the 80’s classic Dr Penetration. She worked with the two biggest guys of the 80’s Dick Rambone and The King John Holmes..if she ever does an interview would love to know if the story was true about her falling asleep during her scene with John Holmes in Marina Vice?

    3. Whatever happened to Desiree West? The first black actress who became a superstar from the San Francisco porn scene.. I read she actually dated John Holmes for a brief period but who knows if it’s true?

    Well there is my wish list and a Happy Holiday’s to all!

    Love all the updates on the great talent of erotic cinema when it wad an art form. Does the Rialto Report have any plans to do an article on Helen Madigan. A true unappreciated vices of the golden error. The first porn movie I bought on 42 nd street called Ms Women of the year starred her. I fell in love immediately.
