The second of only two films he appeared in; this one Berlin also wrote, directed, and produced. A simple tale of a young lad trying to find true love. Constantly hit on, poor Peter finally finds a lover who can see the real him – young blind man, of course. The brief glimpses of hippies, San Francisco in the early 1970’s, and Berlin’s self-made clothes are just priceless.

ya know, I do still really care about this porno-crazed blog, i really do. in fact, i was cleaning through my archive of video clips, and it just kills me that for the last 2 or 3 years, anything new I record has that awful distorted sound, no matter what I try. so i think i’ve figured it out, and so quickly just popped in the closest videotape (i don’t think you can be more than 18 inches from a pornotape in this place…), fiddled (yet again) with the settings, and think maybe I have fixed the distorted sound. Now, of course, I ain’t gonna go back and re-record a couple years of postings, but if this is truly fixed, it’ll encourage me greatly to get back into the pornoclip postings. Whaddya think?
‘Style’ was Falcon’s 1981 film shot by John Summers (Vaughn Kincey – “the Black Buddah” – who knew?) and styled by Kyle Martin, an assistant of Bruce Weber. Summers says it was the first time they shaved the models (“manscaping” —- ewwww!), ending the lumberjack look of the 70s and changing the industry forever. (awwww, jeez!)
But despite this horrible, horrible thing that they did, i still think you should check out the KICKSTARTER page for Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story and pledge a few bucks to get this film made – and of course also facepage it, googleplug it, or just pass the word on the old fashion way and email your friends about it.

Blue Movie Auditions
directed by: Tom DeSimone (1974)
Starring: Jacque, Jeff Puckett, Ken Gordon, Leo Gayle, and Peter Raw (need to check credits to confirm, there are 6 models, in all)
Sometimes known as How To Make A Homo Movie, distributed by Something Weird Video, DeSimone vigorously denies ever making such a film, but most likley Blue is the original title, and in fact his film, but someone changed the name along the way. Check out this guy’s idea of the scene he’d like to make.
“Chuck Holmes, founder of Falcon Studios and one of the founding fathers of the Human Rights Campaign. (I’ll try not to hold that against him!). Chuck Holmes built a gay porn empire, then used (some of) the money to (help) fund the gay rights movement — only to find that while his money was welcome, his association sometimes wasn’t.”
I can copy/paste with the best of them, but ask the BF, I loathe inaccuracies or exaggerations, so I had to add my two cents! I seriously doubt they meant to say all he earned through Falcon went to the movement, or that he (alone) funded the movement, but I can’t let it slide – despite knowing it’s not as slick a tagline with my additions! But they are looking for help to fund the making if this documentary, and I hope my slightly re-written version helps.
I just pledged! – it looks fascinating and I like being able to help out projects like this when I can.
So, check out the KICKSTARTER page for Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story – then facepage it, googleplug it, or better yet, pledge a few bucks (i’m looking forward getting my copy of the doc!)
