LFP Gives Birth to a 'Phenomenon'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — LFP's "Barely Legal" series, known for introducing nubile 18-year-old girls to the porn business, celebrates its 75th DVD release with a special "Barely Legal" documentary, "The Birth of a Phenomenon."

"Barely Legal No. 75" is a two-disc, special collectors edition that includes a look into the rise of Hustler’s teen cultural sensation.

"The Birth of a Phenomenon" focuses on the late director Clive McLean, the man known as the visionary behind the series. McLean started as a photographer for Hustler Magazine and was the first and only writer/director for Barely Legal video until his illness and subsequent death in 2005.

Following the success of the magazine of the same name, Barely Legal videos started production in 1999.

“When we were putting together this collectors edition we knew we wanted to honor Clive in some way,” LFP Video Group Creative Director Drew Rosenfeld said. “The documentary is a great way for the fans to get a glimpse of what it was like in the early days of the series and to really experience what a great guy Clive was.”

Some of the biggest players in the adult industry are featured in "The Birth of a Phenomenon" documentary, including Larry Flynt, Tera Patrick, Suze Randall, Jenna Haze, Belladonna, Kimberly Kane and Nick Manning.

“It was like a family reunion,” said Erica McLean, Clive's widow and current director of the "Barely Legal" series, “Myself and the Hustler team brought together performers, photographers and crew from past and present to reminisce. The love and affection everyone felt for Clive was overwhelming.”

"Barely Legal No. 75," including "The Birth of a Phenomenon" documentary, releases on Sept. 27.
