The Legendary Adult Actress Lisa de Leeuw! Celebrating This Fiery Red-headed “Lioness”! 

Celebrating Fiery Redhead Lisa de Leeuw!

One of the fun parts of doing the “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” is celebrating some of the most popular Adult Movie Queens from the “golden age of porn!”

Illinois-born Lisa De Leeuw had an acclaimed career and became one of early XXX-cinema’s Icons – who got into porn because of a boyfriend who managed a movie house that showed X-rated films!

In her almost decade long career, Lisa made more than a hundred films of all lengths, and her signature was a lion-head pendant that she wore around her neck in almost all her films and pictorials.

The Story Behind The “Lioness!”

Here’s what that special necklace meant: her surname De Leeuw is Dutch for “The Lion.” So that pendant was her “Lioness” signature!

Oh, she was known for something else as well:

Her Eye-Popping Figure!

Yes, Lisa de Leeuw is a vivacious redhead – and the camera loved her! 

According to her online bio, she was reluctant to dive into the world of adult films, but eventually decided to give it a shot, and made her debut in 1978 in “Stranger In Town”. She was credited as “Redhead In Pool!”

She appeared the next year in the classic adult film “800 Fantasy Lane” with an all-star cast.

Here’s the plot for this XXX-rated film: two lowly gas pump attendants pose as oil magnates in order to gain entry into the exclusive Hollywood Star Realty … where the real estate agents are gorgeous, sexy starlets! 

As you can see, she “popped” on camera!

She quickly became a favorite with fans, who appreciated her lush body, wild mane of red hair and voracious performances. 

“October Silk”

For this 1980 film she went by the name Lisa DeLeuew, but the results were the same – the camera loved her! She also ended up in men’s magazines as well!

“The Girl From SEX!”

All I could find out about the plot of this film is that Lisa plays “Agent 38-DD!”

Of course she does!

Next up for Lisa was a great takeoff of a popular film at the time…

“8 To 4!”

This 1981 film was a spoof of the Dolly Parton film “9 To 5” – and is filled with all the action you want from a sex comedy!

What a cast! Legendary XXX-rated performers Annette Haven and Veronica Hart also starred, and I shared an in-depth look at Annette’s career:

She was a stunning beauty and an acclaimed Actress as well – see all of her greatest hits in my story here:

Another film from the same year was an award winner for Lisa:

A police detective tries to help a top-class prostitute find out who is killing her fellow colleagues.

Lisa’s work in the film was acclaimed, and she won the Adult Film Critics Award for Best Actress!

After continuing to act in adult films for several more years, she left the business in 1987.

I couldn’t find out much about her life after adult films, but she left a great legacy for fans.

Lisa was very well known for her fiery red hair. She reminded me of another redhead who had a terrific cult film career as well:

Sharon Kelly starred in a number of cult films before changing her name to Colleen Brennan and doing XXX-rated work…see her story by clicking here:

  1. I came across a copy of Dixie Ray: Hollywood Star under the title It’s Called Murder Baby also starring Cameron Mitchell!!!!! All the hardcore scenes were edited out and the film became pointless.
