Memories within Miss Aggie (dir. Gerard Damiano, 1974, 95 min.)
World Premiere of New 2K Restoration!
Introduction by David Church, PhD*
In this follow-up to his “porno chic” hit The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), Gerard Damiano presents the reminiscences of Aggie, an older woman recounting major sexual milestones with her husband Richard. Each melancholy flashback features Aggie and Richard played by different actors (including Kim Pope, Mary Stuart, Darby Lloyd Rains, Eric Edwards, and Harry Reems), suggesting Aggie’s increasingly unstable recollections as she comes to a final, heartbreaking realization. This brand-new restoration recovers a long-forgotten, Bergmanesque effort by one of adult cinema’s great auteurs.
