In 1987, French Adult Cinema superstar, Marilyn Jess, began the production of what would become her final film. Joining her was Michel Beaudricourt (Michel Caputo), who took the opportunity to document Marilyn, her fellow actors, and crew, creating an extraordinary mix of documentary and erotic fantasy. IL ETAIT UNE FOIS MARILYN JESS is at last presented in its original version, which has never before been seen on video.

In 1984, Jean-François Davy (as Paul Kermann), directed his last 35mm X rated film, LINGERIES FINES ET PERVERSES. Gathering all the stars of the time, Helen Shirley, Marilyn Jess, Olinka, Cathy Menard and Marianne Aubert, LINGERIES tells the story of a female director of erotic movies who looses herself in a journey of female fantasies.
