VANCOUVER, Canada — “Porn Archeologist” Dimitrios Otis's copy of cult director Ed Wood's "The Young Marrieds" is screening May 15, at 9:15 p.m. PDT at the RIO Theatre, Vancouver, Canada.

The 1972 X-rated film was both written and directed by Wood using the pseudonyms Richard Trent and Hank Barnum.

Featured in the movie is "The Killing of a Chinese Bookie " actress Alice Friedland in a hardcore sex role. The movie played a series of dates in 1974 in New York and Los Angeles before disappearing for 30 years. It turns out several copies were shipped to Canada in various cuts, with the full-length 61-minute version surviving.

Otis said drawing on fears of “freaks and weirdos” to quaint suburban heterosexuality, "The Young Marrieds" is cunningly subversive to the straight porn genre, macho male sexual heroics, and the (supposedly) straight male audience that frequented the adult cinemas. Otis will be in attendance for a Q&A session.
