'Johnny Wadd' Breaks VCX Sales Records

CHATSWORTH, Calif. — DVD sales of the noir-inspired "Johnny Wadd," the first title featuring the X-rated detective created by director Bob Chinn and adult superstar John Holmes, are breaking VCX's sales records according to Dynasty Group Distribution, the producer's distributor.

Shot in 1973, "Johnny Wadd" marks the first time the title has ever been available on a home video format. VCX President David Sutton procured a print that was shown only once, then transferred the movie to DVD using a process that preserves the original film and improves the image quality.

Chinn, a frequent Holmes collaborator, is featured on a director's commentary track and in an exclusive interview. Both extras were produced exclusively for the "Johnny Wadd" DVD.

"This movie is fantastic and the response we've received is phenomenal," said Jon Islas, president of distribution for Dynasty Group. "It's the very first Johnny Wadd movie with a young John Holmes, and it hasn't been seen since it was shown in the adult theaters 35 years ago."

Islas added that the packaging, which features a film noir look and a red foil DVD sleeve, has helped tremendously.
