Jack Horner in Boogie Nights was all against videotape. The Colonel wanted to get out in front of it.Yes, the recording length made VHS a better option for consumers, even if the quality wasn’t as good as beta, but the main reason VHS won was that the porn industry standardized on it - this is no joke and really had a major impact on the VHS versus Beta wars. The jump from 8mm to VHS really caused that industries growth explosion in the 1980s.
My favorite Burt Reynolds role. His agent signed him up for it and Reynolds once he read the script he fired his agent and sued to try and get out of it. Seems Reynolds was just born to portray a sleezy porn producer. Hahaha!!! He was nominated for an Oscar (the only nomination he ever had).
