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.

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 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.

If you are interested in gay adult films you have to check out "Ask Any Buddy" on Instagram- they make these great podcasts too which explore the history of these gay porn classic from the1970s- if you join their Patreon you get more content.

Ooooohhhhh... I see that none other than the prestigious British Film Institute even has a trailer for it on YouTube a.k.a. "ASK ANY BUDDY trailer | BFI Flare 2020". Is that Shawn Cassidy posing as "Mark", discussing some sideline work he was doing at the time when not busy with Parker Stevenson in THE HARDY BOYS-NANCY DREW MYSTERIES series on TV? Gotta love the hair styles of the times. Speaking of which, a commentator on there named "Rage Against My Hairline" wants us to all know how hetero he/she is but still wants to be open to the topic: "Well, it's not for me, but I'm glad it exists."

Here is the trailer for "Ask Any Buyddy" directed by one of the guys who does the podcast- this looks like a must see I love that music...

serious film making specially in the 1970s
