Our Ten Favorite Alpha France Titles (And Five Classic Stars We Love!)
Between 1976 and 1983, Alpha France produced more than 150 French hardcore 35mm movies. Largely unavailable outside of France for years, these movies are erotic and iconic. Featuring excellent acting and character development (usually), these films vacillate between classy and smutty in the way that only a European film can. They occasionally contain scenes that are so outright bonkers they have to be seen to be believed. Here are HotMovies' top ten favorite Alpha France productions and five of their most beloved stars.
1975’s Pussy Talk has every reason to be regarded as a cult classic as it was the first international success for French adult cinema. The immodest, scandalous revelations of a talking vagina put the protagonists in some very sordid situations. It was remade two years later as an R-rated comedy in the US called Chatterbox (featuring Rip Taylor), but this Alpha France production and its sequel are by all accounts and purposes still the quintessential talking vagina experience to this day.
This film was released in Paris in 1976 and featuring Veronique Maurgarski, Karine Gambier, and Erika Cool as three gorgeous stewardess working for "Sex Air Lines". This sexy and quite bonkers film was one hell of a tremendous success, even with the nuttiness that permeates the final scene (a hilarious mostly-softcore orgy on an airplane!). The only hardcore action in this orgy is male-on-male action between Guy Royer and Thierry De Brem, played for laughs and subversion, but unaccredited stand-ins were used for the penetration shots. Kudos to those two brave stand-ins who have never gotten their due!
This kinky comedy classic was released in 1976. When Mr. Leon's mother gave him his first spanking, she never could have guessed that in fact she was setting her youngster off on a long and fruitful sexual career! Mr. Leon’s spankings were bare bottom and not simulated during production. Poor Corinne Lemoine shared that while her spankings did not last very long, they were indeed quite painful!
While the wife is away on vacation, her naughty husband decides to use that opportunity to become bachelor again. Released in France in February 1981 to positive critical and audience reception, this is one of Jane Baker's most popular appearances in the Alpha France catalog.
Released to overwhelming enthusiasm in 1980, this is another sexy airline offering from Alpha France! Serena is an airline stewardess taken from all sides in mid-flight! France Lomay is the insatiable nurse, Morgane the little flirt, and Olga Cris is the snooty, perverted bourgeoisie and their performances are just downright stunning.
Debuting in French cinema in 1983, this is the last film produced by legendary French porn film producer Francis Mischkind, and the last film directed by Burd Tranbaree. A well-written plot with many locations, not to mention a huge cast of thirty-six supporting actors enabling the sexual initiation of this married woman played by the gorgeous Cathy Menard, this was meant to be the most ambitious X-rated movie ever done on 35mm before the taking-over of video.
Debuting in Paris in 1976 to record numbers, this title is also known as The Kinky Ladies of Bourbon Street. This is Alpha France’s ode to pleasure in extreme forms, featuring a masturbation scene shot in an actual graveyard! It’s crazy, well-shot, and of course, erotic as hell. Maybe literally!
This film is also known as Parties Fines and Education Of The Baroness. Debuting in Paris in 1977, this title was Bridgette Lahaie’s first big role for Alpha France.
The Sex Window has become a French adult cult film that features some very exceptional archival footage. The plot follows a reporter who is doing reporting on the making of an adult film. When first released back in 1977, this film gave audiences members a look at the hidden side of spectacular X-rated production.
Another hit from Alpha France released in Paris in 1981, Gaëlle, a young virgin, falls madly in love with the former lover of her mother. She decides to join him in Corsica. Following a journey of sexual adventures in which his "virtue" is put to the test, she finds him, charms him, seduces him, and experiences her first real night of love.
