John Holmes Filmography: Reference Guide

Inches Filmography – Reference Guide

winning-strokes The two authors of A Life Measured in Inches viewed and reviewed a significant selection of John Holmes’ vast loop and film work that is unrivaled today by any adult star.  In addition to being the definitive biography on the adult film world’s biggest icon, the book’s 21 page filmography has widely been credited as an excellent reference guide.  Holmes is one of the very few actors to have worked over three decades performing in all facets of adult entertainment including: nude modeling, nudist shorts, black and white loops, mail order, simulated sex, softcore and hardcore erotic scenes and feature movies.

china-cat-2_0 He is the first actor to have portrayed a recurring character in an adult series (spanning almost 10 years) as private detective Johnny Wadd.  John Holmes is the very first X-Rated performer to have been inducted in the XRCO (X-Rated Critics Organization) Hall of Fame in 1985, and he is the profession’s first International star. 

Due to continued avid interest in Holmes’ legend and superstar status, a substantial portion of Holmes’ film library has been carefully restored, digitalized and transferred from the masters, making some of his work available for purveyers for the first time. 

The best selection of John Holmes early loops and feature films reviewed by Sugar and Nelson can be immediately accessed and enjoyed through VOD at:  John

John Holmes: 1986 Audio interview Update

John Holmes – Audio Recordings


Courtesy of Laurie Holmes and John Holmes Enterprises, we have been granted permission to upload a segment of a select audio recording that was taped early in 1986.  John Holmes made tapes following his acquittal for murder charges in 1982, and up until the last year of his life, as he prepared to write his memoir (published posthumously as Porn King in 1998).  In this segment, John provides insight into the production of the 1986 film, The Return of Johnny Wadd (Penguin Productions), and expresses his thoughts about the adult film genre.  Portions of these rare audiotapes were used as resource material for John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches.  Special thanks to Ms. Laurie Holmes.
