"I'm ready for my blow-job Mr. DeMille," is only one of the many campy and funny lines in this hit from Karen Dior. Transexual Boulevard is of course, a spoof of Sunset Boulevard, and believe me when I say that the industry has been bombarded with these take-offs all year. 1 do believe that this one is the best since it has that satiric quality that the others (Sunsex Boulevard), did not. Lana Luster gives the finest performance of her career in this video, and manages to make the entire thing totally worthwhile with only two scenes to work with. She appears near the beginning, and at the end. What goes on in between is, unfortunately, nowhere near the level of excellence of her scenes.
The one exception is the very first scene of the video in which Tony surprise gets a big suprise from veteran she-male Chloe. This opening humorous encounter sets the stage for the fun stuff that follows: Norma Diamond, (has-been ) transvestite pornstar is planning a come-back, (or should I say cum-back) to the world of adult video. Down on his luck (and knees) screenwriter Joe Hardwick gets a flat tire in front of Norma's Sunset Blvd home. Greeted by Wolfy, the butler (Mark Andrews), Joe is escorted inside where he meets Miss Diamond her/himself. What ensues, makes for one of the finest sex comedies of the year. Applause to Karen Dior, Lana Luster and Cloe. "Happy New Year, darling!"
