'Blue Movie' Brings Back The Golden Era of Explicit Film

Photographer Dan Wilton is a seasoned pro when it comes to shooting the glitterati of the music industry. Indeed, Wilton has followed the who's-who of the music world around as they tour the world, gifting the masses with photographs of their behind-the-scene antics.

As rewarding as being a celebrity documentarian must be, Wilton has decided to go in a new direction with his latest project for Vice. Titled 'Blue Movie,' this editorial simultaneously parodies and glorifies the 1970s porno scene. Taking cues from explicit films such as Debbie Does Dallas, starring Bambi Woods as a wannabe cheerleader, Blue Movie encompasses everything the so-called "Golden Age" of porn stood for. This means, beyond peroxide blondes dreaming of Texas, there are moustached dudes that look like they're named Rick or Tony, a generous helping of body hair and let's not forget the all-important close-up of the O-face.

If you'd like to have a taste of what porn-viewing was like back in the 70s, look no further -- the editorial even goes as far as to take on the grainy image quality of a VCR for added believability.
