Late in 1973 and early in 1974, U.S. Supreme Court decisions had left feature-film hard-core pornographers in something of a quandary. So great was their uncertainty that many of them ventured into safer waters by making films which had erotic content but precious little pornography.
They also made an effort to really punch up the socially redeeming quality of their films. One such film is Wakefield Poole's (X-Rated) Bible in which he retells the stories of several great biblical romances. Adam and Eve, Samson and Delilah, and David and Bathsheba are retold with a particularly erotic focus.
Poole's other films, curiously, were for the gay trade: Boys in the Sand and Bijou.
