IN SEARCH OF SEKA
The smart and charmingly edited Fleshbot — part of the Gawker empire, a reliable source for Paris Hilton T-mobile hack links, and truly the only “adult” Web site you need to bookmark — notes today the “porn star documentary craze” and links to a doc produced by the Swedish Grindhouse pictures that tracks down the legendary ’70s pornstar Seka.
Titled Desperately Seeking Seka, the pic details a trio of Swedish filmmakers trying to locate and interview perhaps the biggest female porn star of the 1970s. While I wasn’t aware that Seka had pulled a Betty Page-like disappearing act, the filmmakers apparently mine some suspense from their quest. And since Fleshbot spoiled the ending, I will too: the filmmakers find Seka, aka Dorothy Patton, cooking pasta in her Chicago kitchen where she proceeds to regale them with stories of the porn’s “Golden Age.”
