Classic Feature Length Porn Movie ‘The Bite’ With Andrea True On Re-Mastered And Reissued DVD From Gamelink
Originally released in movie theatres as The Big Con, the film resurfaced a year or so later, re-titled The Bite, in order to cash in on the success of The Sting. Although the two films share similar plot elements, The Bite takes a far more lyrical and comedic touch to the subject matter. Plus, this being a Golden Age porn movie, it has infinitely more hardcore sex action.
Three hapless and over-ambitious 1930’s con artists - Sweet Kate, The Toledo Kid and Johnny Memphis - decide to con a local banker, Francis B. Dobbs, into buying a brothel. The cast, among them Sara Nicholson, Alan Marlow, Robert Everett, and future disco diva Andrea True, all provide fine acting, as well as fucking and sucking, performances. The direction by ex-nudie filmmaker Jerry Denby, who also directed the excellent Whatever Happened To Miss September, is strong and the film as a whole has much higher production values than most dirty at the time. In fact, among those in the know, The Bite aka The Big Con is considered to be a classic feature film from the Golden Age of Movie Porn.
The set and costume designs, as well as the musical scoring, are all in keeping with the 1930’s atmosphere, and the well written script offers more than a few clever one liners and plot twists to keep the audience interested. Jerry Denby tries hard to make the most out of this production and has succeeded. Cinematically, The Bite looks just as good as lower budget Hollywood films.
The Bite aka The Big Con works very well as both a 1930’s period piece and a 1970’s time capsule of a quality east coast hardcore film of that era. As an example of quality porn from the period it is well worth adding to any collection, especially now that it has been re-mastered and re-released on high quality DVD by VCX.
Andrea True Biography: Andrea Marie Truden was born in Nashville Tennseeee in 1943. As Andrea True - aka Inger Kissen, Louis Grimes, Ida King, Catherine Warren, Inger Kissin, Singh Low, Singe Low - she was able to successfully cross-over from hardcore porn to becoming a disco diva with hits such as “More, More, More” to her name. When friends suggested that she joined them in a porn movie, she agreed, believing it to be a good way for her to gain more acting experience. She performed in a number of Scandinavian porn films in the late 1960’s, and at the end of the decade, began appearing in American adult films. Andrea True, under her various aliases, appeared in more than 60 hardcore porn films throughout the 1970’s and early 1980’s, becoming one of the most recognizable porn actresses in the New York adult film business. Andrea True was extremely sexually experienced and this showed in her roles, often playing an older woman or a sex-crazed madam. She could be a dominant sexual performer when the role called for it, turning her sexual partners into quivering masses of spent flesh. Andrea True's major claim to fame, and why she is still remembered today, is because she is the only porn actress to have topped the Billboard charts. Her 1976 disco hit “More, More, More” hit the number one spot worldwide and can still be found on disco compilation CDs. Most people listening and dancing to Andrea True today don't realize that the woman belting out the sexy lyrics is none other than one of the biggest porn starlets of the 1970's, who really know how to suck and fuck on-screen. However, one glimpse of Andrea True naked and getting down and dirty will prove that she indeed means give me more cock and more pussy when she says,“More, More, More”!.
