The Danish Connection 1974

Big John Holmes played private detective Johnny Wadd in 11 films between 1971 and 1986. This is one of only two not directed by Bob Chinn, and the only one that is softcore. The credited director is Walt Davis, who made the crackpot bisexual horror/porn oddity Widow Blue – a favourite of mine.

In fact, Bob Chinn did direct some this. The classic Johnny Wadd kung-fu fights – memorably parodied in Boogie Nights – couldn’t have been the work of anyone else. The footage apparently originated as outtakes from the previous Wadd opus, Tropic of Passion, but were sold to Davis. The Chinn scenes are awkwardly integrated into an incoherent story about the search for a male virility formula. A millionaire hires Wadd to find it, but Wadd is kidnapped by a mad scientist who also wants the formula, so the millionaire also hires swingin’ photographer Rick Cassidy to find it. The viewer comes to slowly realize that Walt Davis must have thought that Johnny Wadd was a James Bond-like spy instead of a private dick.

The tone shifts wildly between Chinn’s usual porno-noir and Walt Davis’s wackiness. The plot is hopelessly convoluted. Rene Bond drops by briefly for some simulated bump-n-grind. The scenes where Wadd is lying on a red waterbed in a stark white room and being experimented-on/tortured by nubile women are, I am confident, Walt Davis’s work. The ending is… well, I don’t even know what to say about the ending.

I wouldn’t tell you not to watch it.
