Filmmaker known for sexploitation pics, post house Salon
British filmmaker Stanley Long, whose cheap-and-cheerful soft-core romps saw him dubbed the “king of sexploitation,” died Monday of natural causes in Buckinghamshire, southern England. He was 78.A producer, director and cinematographer, Long created movies with titles like “Nudist Memories” and “The Wife Swappers” before scoring his biggest success with “Adventures of a Taxi Driver” and other 1970s sex comedies. The mix of bawdy humor and nudity in “Adventures” was a hit. The film was sold to 36 countries and spawned two sequels. Long also set up the post-production company Salon, which has worked on big-budget movies including “V for Vendetta” and “Batman Begins.”
