The 400 Blow Jobs

While banished to the Hollywood blacklist, Williams wrote and directed over 200 stag films over a period of fifteen years. Decades before Pulp Friction and Forrest Hump, Williams perfected the art of the porn parody with films such as A Streetwalker Named Desire and High Poon. Only a few of these films still exist today, often in nearly unwatchable condition. This wickedly funny take-off of Truffaut’ 400 Coups is one the few remaining artifacts from this period in Williams’ filmography.
