Audio/Video Quality: For such old scenes I wasn't expecting a lot. Imagine my surprise when all but a few scenes looked really clear! While done with a full frame, 1.33:1 ratio color transfer (as originally shot), and the scenes compared favorably with many newer ones from Private. The 2.0 stereo sound wasn't quite as good and I'm here to tell you that the English dub had virtually no English on it. The best sounding audio track was the French track. Luckily, the language of hot sex is the same everywhere.

Body of Review: Lust Treasures 3 is a compilation of scenes from the Triple X series, specifically, from volumes 11-16. I don't think any of these are currently available on DVD so this compilation is a good way to get familiar with those 5 releases without shelling out a ton of dough. The surprising thing about this compilation is that most scenes do not have anal; only three out of ten did and that was followed by DP's. The women were generally not Private's top babes but only one of them was less than attractive. Here's a breakdown by scene including the particulars of where it's from:
Scene One: Triple X Video 11: African Beach Fuck: 4/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Barby, Mephisto, Philipe S., Jean: Its funny how the least attractive lady is the first one here. She looked like a female version of Eddie Wulfgang Munster from the hit TV show of the 1960's, The Munsters. She had a natural body, like all the others here and had sex on a beach with a
bunch of TV fans. Not bad if you get past her look.
Scene Two: Triple X Video 12: Hot Striptease: 1/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Maria, Oliver, Jack, uncredited guy: After performing a strip act for her man, the two of them screwed on a bed. Soon, some male friends join them. It was pretty hot and she was majorly cute.
Scene Three: Triple X Video 12: Gabi: 5/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Gabriella, Alain, Tony: She's a cute redhead and the sex took place on a bed. She looked possessed as if she couldn't get enough. It was very well done with no anal.
Scene Four: Triple X Video 13: Wild Cats: 6/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Blondi e, Adele, Jack: This was a scene out in the wilds of Africa. All three seemed to have fun and so did I.
Scene Five: Triple X Video 13: The First Time: 6/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Demia, Jean, Mephisto: The three meet in a hotel room when Mephisto hooks his pal up with Demia. She's more attractive than her mainstream counterpart and the scene lasted over 24 minutes. None of the time appeared wasted-Yum!
Scene Six: Triple X Video 14: Cold Day In Heaven: 7/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Cecile, Jean, Tony: She's a very cute redhead and the group had sex on a rocky shore. I liked the scene but it wasn't quite right to me for some reason.
Scene Seven: Triple X Video 14: Julia: 1/96: D-Pierre Woodman, C-Julia, Alain, Frank, Richard: She was cute in an offbeat sort of way. The sex was hot and included a DP.
Scene Eight: Triple X Video 15: Three Girls And A Sausage: 5/96: D-Francois Clousot, C-Monika, Carol, Gabriella, Mephisto, Jean: This scene took place at the kitchen table and was probably my favorite. The women looked hot, the action was great, and the technical values were solid.
Scene Nine: Triple X Video 16: Savage Dreams: 5/96: D-Nic Cramer, C-Missy, Sean: This was the second grainiest scene of the compilation and it doesn't take a genius to figure out why. Cramer is known for such problems in most of his releases so why would his foray into Private be any different? No matter, she looked great and the sex was solid in this
Outdoor campground scene.
Scene Ten: Triple X Video 16: Farmer's Kitchen: 5/96: D-Peter Backman, C-Beata, Valentino: This scene actually looked the worst but it was still okay. It was at a kitchen table and the sex was warm.
Summary: This wasn't the wildest Private compilation I've ever seen and it didn't use the absolute best looking women the company has to offer but even so; it's a lot better than average in both of those respects. Most of the cast seemed quite enthusiastic with what they were doing and the sheer amount of scenes you get, some of which were over 20 minutes long, make up for a lack of great extras. For all this and more, I'm going to rate this one as Recommended and I truly hope to see the actual movies the scenes were cultivated from soon. This would also serve as a good introduction to Private since the action isn't so dedicated to the hardest action they have to offer yet includes some very graphic scenes too.
Note to Private: The production notes went a long way to assisting with this review. They weren't complete but came close. Otherwise, try and include some of the best scenes from your older movies (I know Tania Russof was on at least one of those releases here and her fans would've loved to see it on DVD). Otherwise, it was a very solid effort on your part. Thanks!
This Don Houston "retro-review" was written long ago before the so-called Professor of Porn had much experience writing reviews. Since that time, he has seen more porn than almost anyone reviewing on the internet. Keep in mind that his comments accurately reflected his fresh viewpoint of the time he first saw the movie.
