Soft beefcake blends with socio-political activism.
Mondo Rocco is a collection of short films weaved together as it was seen in the Park Theater in Los Angeles in late 1969/early 1970. These films include: "A Night At Joanie's" featuring illusionist Jim Bailey; "Meat Market Arrest" - a live police bust of a gay bar in '69; several beefcake shorts featuring Rocco stars Ron Dilly; Rev. Troy Perry of MCC leading a protest; and much more. Charming in their innocence, Rocco's films captured important moments in gay history and are an invaluable resource. His website is formative .
