A discrete discussion on "adult" films and their social impact

Yes in a gay love story written by Jerry Douglas who should be given credit for "Score" classic appeal.  Grant did play a bisexual man in Douglas'es "Both Ways" (1975)

There is one you should review for us all. Both that and Radley Metzger's Naked Came The Stranger were shot fairly close together in 1974 with both Gerald Grant and Darby Lloyd Rains.

I would guess that Radley Metzger was a bisexual man.

I saw Calvin Culver at a revival screening of "Score".

He was in the company of a really beautiful woman.

Not one person approached him and congratulated him.

Perhaps his beauty and allure was just too much.

Yeah, you mentioned that before. That must have been an interesting celebrity spotting even if you suggested he seemed unhappy. Read up that he died in Inverness, about an hour northwest of Orlando, Florida and his ashes were distributed in the ocean.

Apparently when the film was revived yet again in the nineties, Metzger himself discovered that Grant had recently died as well.

" Both Ways" seems hard to find- ( oh it's the tagline)  "Score" deserves the Criterion treatment.

Grant and Culver were good performers- but Culver I think really had mainstream star potential- is it possible that his open sexuality stood in the way of a Hollywood career?

I actually saw Ingrid Bergman and Calvin Culver on Broadway in "Captain Brassbound's Conversion".

William Higgins the director producer of such classic gay  erotic films like "Big Guns"(1987) and "Pacific  Coast Highway" (1981) passed away on December 21, 2019

Hadn't heard of him before, but checked out his Wikipedia page. Like the famous animator Gene Dietch, he was happier as a Czech than as a Yank. Quite a few famous Americans in the film business  settled in Prague.

I finally got to see  Tom de Simone's "The Idol" (1979) about a college track star (Kevin Redding) sexual awakening with his team mates. De  Simone is a true film maker and the movie is shot and edited like a Hollywood production .  Redding , who reminds me of Jan Michael Vincent, is very good not just naturally sexy but emotionally true. This is what makes the movie a gay erotic classic - yes there are plenty of hot sex- specially a rub down with his coach, but the movie goes beyond sexploitation   The movie is available on an excellent looking DVD from Bijou Classic.  I bought mine on TLA video which is great source for gay films.  I do wish the DVD had more extras an interview with the director would have been nice. Redding never made another film - but his performance is timeless.
