Storyline

From the birth of cinema through the 1960s in the United States, most pornographic films were brief, black and white, anonymously produced films known as "stag films", "blue movies", or "smokers," so called because of the smoke-filled rooms where men would gather for private screenings. Initially shot on 35mm film, the advent of 16mm and 8mm consumer film stock allowed for production of about 1,000 of these films between 1915 and 1968. This film examines the "stag" film not as much for the subject matter or lack of production value, but as a metaphor and reflection of American popular culture. Featuring film footage from the largest private "stag" film collection in North America, American Stag is an amazing study of a subterranean phenomena of cinema in the western world. Featuring interviews with Adam Carolla, Melvin Van Peebles, Tommy Chong, Barbara Hammer, Linda Williams, Chris Gore, David Skal, and Rupert Jee. Written by J. Smithton

Fest Opens Film
8 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Film will be opening April 1 at the Orlando Film festival. The comedy short "Who Makes Movies?" by Christopher Luccy starring Tom Konkle will screen prior to the premier. the film has apparently had a few snags getting a premiere but, finally gets its due.

The short film, Who Makes Movies? scheduled to screen just prior is largely improvised by Konkle as Randy Palmer is a perfect fit for American Stag as an opener. The short is done in the style of the comedy of Ricky Gervaise and Christopher Guest as a portrait of one man's dealings with the pirating of and working in the adult entertainment industry. Some of the stars of American Stag are slated to appear at the opening of the film that weekend. That film is a feature length documentary that is comic and a serious study of one of the largest collection of stag films and the history of the genre.
