The titular loop is actually a June Palmer short that was professionally photographed, almost certainly on 16mm, though sourced from an 8mm reduction (at some point). A clever advertising strategy, but it has nothing in common with the rest of the collection. These are amateur productions in front of and behind the home movie camera. There are no sets or studios and, in fact, the only constant thread is a girl lying on a bed with the camera positioned at the foot [of the bed]. And the cameramen are zoom crazy.
Given that theses are rough productions mastered at some point from 8mm, the loops are always grainy and often contain numerous specs and scratches. The sole color selection on Disc 1 is washed out. All loops have newly generated titles consisting of multiple exposures that are a little irritating. The second disc features the ‘extra’ loops, and first up we have a color shaving seminar with a double-edged safety razor. This one’s almost scary when she hacks away in a savage frenzy. Rather entertaining though most of the others on this second disc are rather ordinary.
A great collection to show as visual background while blasting the stereo.
