This film looks at the 1950's muscle men's magazines and the representative industry that were popular supposedly as health and fitness magazines, but were in reality primarily being purchased by the still underground homosexual community. Chief among the purveyors of this literature was Bob Mizer, who maintained a magazine and developed sexually inexplicit men's films for over 40 years. Aided by his mother, the two maintained a stable of not so innocent studs. At the end, the film moves into a court room drama as Mizer is tried for running a male-prostitute ring in the early 60's. Clips of Mizer's actual films starring individuals, such as Jack LaLanne and Joe Dallesandro, are included. Written by

Sun, schmun. This scoundrel's on some kind of a drug trip.
[Looks at David]
You. I warned you. We do not slap wrists here at AMG. I want you to take your weed-head friend here, and I want you to scram. I mean it!
[David picks up his friend]
And don't come back! Ever!

Not until you've learned your lesson!

I love this movie for a number of reasons: There is a lot of flesh, sometimes even full frontal. The lead character is beautiful and fresh (although he didn't have much of a career after this, which is a loss to us all.) And there's a lot of gay history, albeit about a very specific area of history. It's also filmed beautifully, very stylized and obviously on sets. It's gorgeous. I've seen it many times.
It's not for everybody. I think that's what I like about it. You can see that they spent a good amount of money on it, but it's only realistically intended for a gay audience. So many gay movies suck. The nineties were cruel with their promise of films that were stupid or poorly done. This one isn't either. I've had my copy for years and I will continue to watch it over and over.
