Re-release of John Holmes' final performance as private eye Johnny Wadd.


During the "Golden Age of Adult" John C. Holmes created a character known to all adult cinema fans as "Johnny Wadd." John Holmes actually became synonymous with Johnny Wadd - the ultimate bad ass, hard living, skirt chasing detective in the mold of Dirty Harry and Sam Spade.

In The Return of Johnny Wadd, Holmes reprised the role that made him a legendary adult star. The Return of Johnny Wadd is a must have collectors film, not only for it's historical value but for the big budget, high quality production that features the most famous names in the adult cinema business it's a timeless classic that Adam and Eve Pictures is proud to present.


Private eye Johnny Wadd busts a crime ring led by villain Billy Dee with the help of sexy cop Kimberly Carson. This was the last time John Holmes would play Wadd, the character that became his on-screen alter ego.

By this stage in his career, Holmes had a commanding screen presence even when doing nothing. His laconic, world-weary, but always in-charge persona invites comparisons with Hollywood icons like Mitchum and Eastwood. (Yes, really.) His sex scenes, it must be said, seem a bit effortful. The other first-rate performance comes from Carson, who was not only cute but talented, and underrated at the time.
