Stephan D. Gill,
From the dawn of the sexual revolution comes the outrageous and true story of 1970s gay porn icon Jack Wrangler. Jack rose to become a major brand name in adult entertainment, as well as a hero to the newly liberated gay population, only to cross over to straight movies and fall in love with famous vocalist Margaret Whiting. Written by
Extraordinary, Delightful Person's Extraordinary, Delightful Life
Jack Wrangler was a spoiled Beverly Hills brat, an insecure homosexual, and an unsuccessful actor who became the self-made top-echelon icon of gay pride in porn movies. Having reached the peak of the gay porn-star profession (a profession he virtually created as he created himself), he then made just as big a name in straight porn, married a famous woman, and started several new careers. This detailed, crystal-clear documentary takes you through Jack's mind and life with copious footage of him, his work, his times, and a great many people who were around him. As a co-worker of Jack's and a participant in this movie, I assure you that director Schwarz has caught Jack's quiet, charming, and above all strong essence perfectly. This is the Jack I know.
