Annette Haven was probably the classiest and most sophisticated of the golden-age porn stars. While looking through some of her old clips I was struck by her worldliness. How many modern-day erotica stars would you describe as worldly? Probably none.
Worldliness was inherent in Annette’s fiber, her spirit: Even when she was too young to be playing the foxy older lady, she was playing the foxy older lady. And in these cruel days, when moms and teachers are being sent to prison for the charitable act of sleeping with young men, the foxy older lady is an archetype worth rooting for.
Besides, worldliness yields benefits both aesthetic and practical. To wit: No one in contemporary porn sucks dick the way Annette sucked dick. That is, sans spitting and gagging, and certainly sans mascara-ruining histrionics, but with plenty of tactfulness, knowingness, and soul.
Am I alone in thinking that Annette and Anne Hathaway look a bit similar? The first thing I thought upon discovering Hathaway was: “Oh, she looks like Annette Haven!”
Allegedly, Brian De Palma nearly cast Haven in the role in “Body Double” that eventually went to Melanie Griffith. “I don’t know if there’s any good young porno stars out here,” said De Palma, “but the older ones—Annette Haven, Seka—some of them can really act. And Annette Haven has a terrific body.” De Palma has always been a keen judge of female flesh.
