Today, October 24, 2020, would have been Judy Angel’s 80th birthday. The name “Judy Angel” is probably not one that many modern punters are familiar with. But in fact she helped pave the way for the modern adult entertainment world as we know it today.
Judy Angel performed in at least two dozen adult films in the span of less than one year, including the groundbreaking MONA THE VIRGIN NYMPH. In this, the first widely-released plot-driven hardcore film (MONA however wasn’t “the” first hardcore feature, but it was the tipping point and is generally recognized as the film that opened the flood gates of filth and degeneracy on the silver screen), Judy performed many “firsts”:
- The first fully-engaged masturbation scene (complete with fully penetrative dildo as well as…well watch it yourself).
- The first full-penetration hardcore sex scene (yes, this was Judy and not Fifi Watson as many would surmise). And even the first cream-pie scene (the money-shot had not yet become compulsory).
- And as the main character’s mother who seduces the young boyfriend she also in effect she set the standard for all future MILFs to come. Howard Ziehm, the films producer/director, remembers Judy as “a glamorous fifty-year old, and possibly the first MILF…to work in the porn business”.
And yet on the day her scene in HARLOT (another Ziehm flick) was filmed (October 16, 1970 if the mise-en-scene data is accurate) Judy was still just 29 years old. And she wouldn’t live to see the end of 1970.
We plan on at least one follow up post delving deeper into just who Judy Angel (“Angel” was her nom-de-porn, she has at least three other “real” last names, all of which we will try to explain in Part II). But for Part I we really just wanted to remember her on her birthday, and offer a few shots from most of her films. These are not in any particular order, because, while we do know they were all filmed in 1970 they released over a few years into the mid-1970s, and no filming order is known to exist.
Happy Birthday Judy
