RIP Jamie Gillis

RIP Jamie Gillis


This past weekend, well-respected actor, director and adult film legend, Jamie Gillis, passed away from cancer.  John Holmes and Jamie Gillis first met in 1973.  Gillis, who had granted Inches co-authors a rare interview for their biography, is the fourth adult performer of status (the two authors spoke with) to have passed on since the book was published.  Other notable interviewees who are deceased since the publication of A Life Measured in Inches are: Buck Adams, Marilyn Chambers and Juliet Anderson (“Aunt Peg”) respectively.   Please read reflections of Jill Nelson’s interview with Mr. Jamie Gillis in 2007, and his thoughts on John Holmes:  RIP Jamie Gillis  “Happiness, too, is inevitable.”
