This superb, and highly ambitious, vintage gay porn film sports a cast of 50 and a wild scheme to rid the world of sex! The strong story has the mad Arachne (Christopher Rage, billed here as Mary Jim Sstunning, giving a great performance in Dietrich-esque drag) plotting to kidnap a scientist (Mark Woodward) who's developed a process to eliminate the sex drive, which Arachne plans to unleash upon the world. But secret agent Clark (Kirk Luna) is on the case! Great photography and editing, a fun disco sequence, excellent original music, wild orgiastic sex scenes, fisting, bondage, and creative visuals add to this stand-out, and quite unusual, early 1970's creation, well-preserved in this Bijou re-release. Highlights hippie nostalgia, beards, fur-covered bodies, special effects, and willing men bound for love.



Featuring: Brian Destazio, Christopher Rage (Mary Jim Sstunning), Frank Ventgen, Harvey Shamber, Jack Brusca, John Fromme, Kirk Luna, Mark Woodward, Michael Corrigan, Peter de Rome, Peter Fersen, Richard Abel, S.V. Newman, Shawn Roberts, Stan Glinter

This is a film that could only have been made in the '70s! Inspired by the early years of gay liberation and the international film renaissance, director Peter de Rome brings a gravity to the blue movie in this, his first feature, and integrates sex into story in such a way that the two are inseparable, using pornography as a means to a larger end. In Paris, hairy French Yves (Marcus Giovanni) and blond American Adam (Michael Hardwick) play games and relate sexual tales and fantasies to one another, which include a sex scene set to the recitation of a dirty W.H. Auden poem, a Bill Eld solo in an 11th century chapel, a bathroom orgy among black men, and the actual last known footage of Greta Garbo (filmed from a window). 'Adam and Yves' is its own alpha and omega, a true first and last for gay pornography. Truly unique, this is a film that yields rich rewards.



Featuring: Bill Eld (aka Bill Young), Bob Jones, Charles Pooney, Daniel Montfort, David Page, Denise Royal, Earl Wilson, Eric Crawford, Gary Keys, Geraldo, Glenn Wilson, Greta Garbo, Jack Deveau, John Davis, Kirk Luna, Luther LeVale, Marcus Giovanni, Mark Connors, Michael Hardwick, Tony Skinner

A documentary (narrated by porn star Mark Woodward) about Hand in Hand Films, the pioneer gay movie company that first appeared in 1972. This is a history of the New York-based studio and how its three founders (Jack Deveau, Robert Alvarez and Jaap Penraat) dedicated themselves to moviemaking. In addition to hot sex segments from several films, there are a lot of behind-the-scenes explanations of how adult films are made, interviews, and unreleased material (including bloopers, outtakes, and a scene from the never-completed James Bidgood film Beyond These Doors, in production at the time Good Hot Stuff was being filmed). A Bijou exclusive that is timeless and important historically in gay filmmaking.



Featuring: Al Mineo, Alexis Knight, Archie Gresham, Bill Eld (aka Bill Young), Brian Destazio, Christopher Rage (Mary Jim Sstunning), Coke Hennessy, David Savage, Dennis Walsh (Brian Haines), Garry Hunt, Henk Van Dijk, Jack Deveau, Jamal Jones, Kirk Luna, Mark Woodward, Michael Kade (Frank Ross), Nick Kastroff, Peter de Rome, Robert Alvarez, Robert Rikas, Shawn Roberts

A ballet dancer's life is disrupted by an affair with a truck driver in this ambitious Jack Deveau-directed film shot in Manhattan, which features a compelling story, well-realized characters, complex emotions, raunchy gay porn action, and wonderful ballet sequences. This is cinema first, like much of the output of Hand in Hand Films. The sex serves to illustrate the larger themes, one of which is the attraction of opposites. This sexual comedy of manners of sorts touches on class, closetedness, and unrequited longing and is strong on realism, which makes the sex so much more interesting; it's like you're watching real people have sex, not automatons. A fascinating film.
