Richard Dreyfuss and Jessica Harper in 1975’s Inserts.

Inserts tells the tale of a once-successful silent film director (Richard Dreyfuss, Jaws) reduced in the sound era to making porn films in the decrepit mansion he refuses to leave. Trouble arrives in the form of a bootlegger-turned-mogul (Bob Hoskins, Made in Dagenham) and his desperately ambitious actress girlfriend (Jessica Harper, Love and Death).

Rated NC-17 for its explicit sexuality, the film also features the always-watchable Veronica Cartwright.

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of the movie includes an isolated music & effects track and an original theatrical trailer.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives on the prebook date of June 1 so you can  put in your order!
