    FORTIES
  • 1983
    Age 44
    In 1983 Lindsay's premises were again raided and he was sent to trial, this time he was found guilty of obscenity and served 12 months in prison.
    More Details Hide Details Lindsay alleges that the four videotapes seized that helped convict him were planted by the police. Upon his release he retired from pornography and opened a marine broking company in Kent. It is believed he may have recently moved back to his native Scotland. The following began their careers in Lindsay’s blue films and would later move on to more mainstream work, usually in the form of roles in British sex comedies or walk on parts in sitcoms. + -indicates films cited at Lindsay's obscenity trials.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1974
    Age 35
    Lindsay’s 1974 defence claimed he was shooting pornography for export only and that, prior to shooting such material, Lindsay had visited Scotland Yard and been told he would not be acting illegally if he was shooting porn for release outside of the UK.
    More Details Hide Details However the prosecution’s case argued that Lindsay's films were being offered for sale within the UK and that a homegrown distribution network for his films did exist. After the not guilty verdict Lindsay began openly selling his 8 mm films in the UK anyway, he also discovered a legal loophole in which hardcore films could be screened in British cinemas if they were run on a "Membership Only" club basis. Membership Only cinemas worked on the principle that the premises had to be privately owned, and that customers had to sign a form which instantly made them members. Such cinemas had been using this loophole to show soft core sex films since 1960, when Tony Tenser opened the Compton Cinema Club in London's Soho. On account of this legal loophole these cinemas were free to show material without it first being passed by the British censor, and would also be immune to prosecution under the obscene publications act.
    Lindsay had numerous confrontations with the law and obscenity charges made against him, most notably October 1974 (jury unable to reach a majority verdict), 20 November 1974 (retrial: found not guilty) and July 1977 (found not guilty).
    More Details Hide Details
    Hardcore pornography was just around the corner and, by 1974, Lindsay had shot around 100 blue films for the 8mm market.
    More Details Hide Details Ultimately, Lindsay would become as synonymous with blue films in the 1970s as Harrison Marks had with glamour photography in the 1960s. Lindsay's most notorious productions were his so-called "Teenage" or "Lolita" series of films, in which adult actresses portrayed British schoolgirls in a variety of pornographic scenarios—although it seems the same two school uniforms were recycled from film to film. The titles of these jailbait themed films included Sex After School, Schoolgirl Joyride and most famously Jolly Hockey Sticks. While the "schoolgirls" who appeared in Lindsay's films were clearly nothing of the sort, on at least one occasion the settings were accurate. During his 1977 trial it emerged that at least eleven of Lindsay's films had been filmed at Aston Manor, a secondary school in Birmingham. Classroom Lover starred 19-year-old David Freeman, a former head boy, and Colin Richards who was a school caretaker. Upon being found not guilty Lindsay announced his intention to produce Britain’s first feature length hardcore film and fight the British censor to have it released. Although the film never materialised Lindsay was dubbed "the blue movie freedom fighter" by the press, an image he endorsed in adverts for his films which claim "I risked my freedom to give YOU the right to buy them." Several of his post 1977 films also open with a written notice that mention his trials and his not guilty verdicts.
