Synapse has also done a fantastic job when choosing the trailers included with in. The trailers cover just about all genres horror, SciFi, comedy, parodies of a famous Hollywood film and the ever popular sequels to famous franchises like Debbie Does Dallas and the Devil in Miss Jones.

There is a lot to choose from in this collection and while most will find a few trailers that they don’t enjoy the bulk of the content is highly entertaining and most definitively re-watch able. Some highlights from this collection include Beverly Hills Cox, Dracula Exotica, “F”, Fascination, Skin Tight and Ultra Flesh. Overall this is a diverse collection of vintage porn that offers plenty of sex, flesh and unintentional humor.

The DVD:

All the trailers included in the 42nd Street Forever – XXX-treme Special are presented in an anamorphic widescreen. While most of the trailers fill the whole 1.78:1 anamorphic frame some are full frame trailers that have been centered in the anamorphic frame with black bars on each side. I have no idea if these trailers are presented in their original aspect ratio. The framing does not feel cramped and no heads look chopped off. The quality varies from each trailer as most have some form of print damage. Considering their rarity and the amount of work done for this transfer these are all more then watch able.

All the trailers included in this collection are presented in a Dolby Digital mono English audio mix. There is instances hiss and other sound defects, still the overall quality is very good and none of these imperfections ever become to distracting.

The extras for this release are the main attraction and each trailer can be accessed and viewed separately or you can watch all forty seven trailers at once. Overall Synapse latest addition to the 42nd Street Forever collection is just as fun and entertaining as their previous releases in this series. Fans of classic adult cinema while definitely want to pick this collection as it reminds us of a time when adult cinema actually made films and not the crap that is churned out today.
