John Leslie's Porn Star Biography

Early Years

Legendary actor John Leslie was born in Pittsburgh in 1945 and as a young man, moved to Michigan where he worked as a bartender while trying to make it as a musician. He was a singer and played harmonica in a blues band called The Brooklyn Blues Busters. The Brooklyn Blues Busters quickly rose in the blues ranks and often backed up John Lee Hooker on his East Coast shows as well as Victoria Spivey, whom they called "Queenie".

Career in Porn

He made his porn debut in 1973, appearing in Sensuous Delights. He went on from there to perform in almost 400 films. Although many websites list his filmography around 600, many of the titles are compilations that feature Leslie's early scenes. After the eclipse of Holmes due to legal problems, Leslie inherited the mantle of the porn industry's top male superstar with the success of Talk Dirty To Me in 1980. This garnered him the opportunity to work with many of the industry's best production companies, including Essex Video / Electric Hollywood, Dreamland Entertainment, Plum Productions, Western Visuals, and many more.

Notable Costars & Films

Over the years, Leslie appeared with many of the era's most noted porn stars, including Seka, Kay Parker, Annette Haven, and Christy Canyon. His most noteworthy roles were in Dracula Sucks (aka Lust At First Bite) (VCA, 1978), Pretty Peaches (VCA, 1979), Nothing To Hide (VCX, 1981), and Talk Dirty To Me, Part II (Dreamland Entertainment, 1982). Other notable films include Young Doctors in Lust (Now Showing Inc.), Summer Heat (Essex Video / Electric Hollywood), Pumping Flesh (Caballero Home Video), and New York Babes (Arrow Productions).

Directorial Debut and Projects

In addition to being a prolific actor, Leslie was one of the first actors to transition from acting to directing with 1987's Nightshift Nurses. He went on to direct more than 100 films for various studios, such as Evil Angel, VCA, and John Leslie Productions. Noteworthy titles directed by Leslie include The Chameleon (VCA), Curse of the Catwoman (VCA), Dog Walker (John Leslie Productions), and Drop Sex (Evil Angel). He is also behind the following Evil Angel series: Crack Her Jack, Fresh Meat, Voyeur, Voyeur's Favorite Blowjobs And Anals.
