From the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, the adult film business consisted mostly of directors and producers with serious artistic vision and a commitment to create quality erotica. Shooting on film was fairly expensive, so it had the effect of raising the bar high enough to keep out a lot of mediocrity. During this era, some of the century's most memorable porn was produced, including Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976), Talk Dirty To Me (1980), Insatiable (1980), and many others. This isn't to say that great porn wasn't filmed before the Golden Age, since Devil In Miss Jones, Deep Throat, and Behind The Green Door were all made in the early 1970s. In its own half-assed way, the 1997 movie Boogie Nights attempts to document the Golden Age and the decline that followed. After viewing a couple of the Golden Age classics, it is fairly obvious to see why many older men and women are wistful for the porn of the past, considering the low-budget, mass-produced schlock that dominates the industry today.
