Arrow Video has just put out their full press release for their upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of The Last American Virgin from director Boaz Davidson (whose Slasher film X-Ray hits Blu-ray this Tuesday from Scream Factory). Sure this release isn't horror related at all, but Diane Franklin is in it and Diane Franklin is awesome. So awesome in fact that she's put out an official autobiography titled “The Excellent Adventure of the Last American, French-Exchange Babe of the 80s” which you can check out here: www.dianefranklin80sbook.com.
One of the quintessential teen movies of the 1980’s, this special
release marks the first time that film will be available to own in the
UK on Blu-ray and DVD formats.
THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN follows Gary, Rick and David – three American teenagers with one thing on their mind...
They move from party to party, trying out their latest chat-up
lines, which usually end in miserable failure, especially for Gary,
who’s more interested in finding true romance than a quick fumble in
someone's parents' bedroom.
Championed by Roth as one of the most underrated films of its era, THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN
is a raucous but surprisingly intelligent and sobering look at the
hideousness of growing up, peer pressures, misplaced expectations and
