Fans of my two 1970s high school journal blogs might recall that I was a regular reader of HIGH SOCIETY magazine even though I was technically too young to read it at all. Early on in my exposure to the magazine, it was taken over by porn star Gloria Leonard who seemed to be more than just a figurehead. She did sporadically continue her career for a while, though, even getting her own "autobiographical" X-rated feature, ALL ABOUT GLORIA LEONARD, one of the earliest adult films I ever saw on Beta way back in the eighties.
Ms. Leonard suffered brain damage from a stroke over this past weekend and passed today in Hawaii.
Rest in Peace.
