A bright assistant D.A. investigates a gruesome hatchet murder and hides a clue he found at the crime scene. Under professional threats and an attempt on his life, he goes on heartbroken because evidence point to the woman he still loves.
It's Harold's birthday, and his closest friends throw him a party at Michael's apartment. Among Harold's presents is "Cowboy", since Harold may have trouble finding a cute young man on his own now that he's getting older. As the party progresses the self-deprecating humor of the group takes a nasty turn as the men become drunker. Climaxed by a cruel telephone "game" where each man must call someone and tell him (or her?) of his love for them. Written by

Associate Producer Kenneth Utt has 26 credits as an Associate Producer, Producer, or Executive Producer. Of those, the 26th and last film he produced before his death was Philadelphia (1993), coincidentally a film about a gay man dying of AIDS. At the time of the release of "Philadelphia," all five of the cast members from "The Boys in the Band" who died from AIDS had succumbed, the last of which, Kenneth Nelson, just two months before Philadelphia's release.

When he arrives at the party, Cowboy's hairstyle is completely different than it was when he appeared in opening montage as street hustler just several hours earlier. See more »
How's the bathroom smell?
Before it smelled like someone puked. Now it smells like someone puked in a gardenia patch.

First Major Film To Portray Homosexuality in a Mature Way.
The Boys In The Band is my favorite all-time movie. It still sends a message and holds up well even in this decade. Every actor in this cast is perfect for the character they play. This film may have been the first major film to portray homosexuality in a mature way and still is the best film above all. This is not a disgusting film. It is honest and dramatic. I have seen this film several times through different ages and chapters of my life. I get more out of it each time. Sadly, most of the cast, Robert La Tourneaux, Leonard Frey, Frederick Combs, Keith Prentice, Kenneth Nelson and Cliff Gorman are no longer with us. All men should see this film. The best instrumental version of "The Look Of Love" by Burt Bacharach can be heard here. I wish "The Boys In The Band" could be restored and re-issued on VHS video and for DVD.
