Goodbye Jamie Gillis - '70s Porn Legend

7 years ago

 

It always sucks to have to write about bad news. I mean, who wants to come looking for porn and have to deal with a screen full of sadness? But unfortunately life is not all threesomes and orgasms, which itself is super sad, so here goes... Last week adult legend Jaime Gillis succumbed to his battle with melanoma. After fighting the cancer for 4 or 5 months, Gillis passed away in New York City on February 19th, 2010.

Gillis was one of the most well known porn stars of the '70s and '80s, winning a whole host of awards and accolades for his work, including classics such as "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" and "Through The Looking Glass." He even made it to the AVN Hall of Fame!

In recent years, Gillis had been working closely with adult historian Benson Hurst on Hurst's documentary about the birth of the New York hardcore porn scene. Check out AVN to read more about Hurst's experiences with the actor, as well has a more detailed picture of his history in porn. And definitely take a look at some of Jamie Gillis' awesome porno classics.

He will be missed.  For more Jamie Gillis movies, head to HotMoviesForHer.com.
