David Mamet's Homage To A Lost Masterpiece Of Pornography

Recently discovered in the woodworking shop of a Beverly Hills dentist, the 30's porn classic, June Crenshaw, Sex Kitten of the Supreme Court, has been resurrected and restored by David Mamet with the assistance of actors Kristen Bell, Ricky Jay, and Ed O'Neill.

The saga of this forgotten gem, its palpable effect upon Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter and the brouhaha when Justice Louis Brandeis tried to take it away from him for his own selfish purposes, remains to be told but until that time we thank Mamet for recovering this lost masterpiece of cinematic art from the woodchipper, a film based upon one of the most notorious works of literary erotica apocrypha, a rumor of a book never written and rarely read.
