Hard-boiled detective figures were a noteworthy staple in early 1970s grindhouse, manifesting themselves in some of the earliest “hard action” productions coming out of L. A. Characters like “Nicky Butane,” “Sam Dobbs” and “Johnny Wadd” preceded the “neo-noir” new wave launched by Hollywood blockbusters such as Chinatown (1974) and The Long Goodbye (1973) and proved successful enough with audiences to inspire sequels and spin-offs.
THE ZODIAC RAPIST (1971)
Starring John Holmes
Dobbs is about to crack his toughest case – getting into the pants of his secretary and teaching her a thing or two about taking dicktation. After she takes down all he’s got, it’s time for Sam to focus on tracking down the Zodiac serial rapist (porn superstar John Holmes) who has been making mincemeat of L.A. women with his mightymeat.
SAM DOBBS AND THE GURU GANGBANG (1970)
Starring Suzanne Fields, Judy Angel
Sam Dobbs and the Guru Gangbang opens with our implacable gumshoe ensconced in his rather no-frills headquarters.
