OK, so first, I promise I’ll post the full 10-minute scene later this week – but, just so you know, my initial plan was just to post the last 2 minutes, after the sex is over, since for me, at age 18 or whatever I was when I first saw this on the big screen at the Bijou Theater, it was the confrontation with the homophobe, and Fred Halsted tossing him through a window, that grabbed me. My heroes might suck cock, but they weren’t sissies! And with the critical 30 seconds of the scene missing from the later VHS versions, and now the DVD, this very important point in the film would be lost for the ages!
Anyway, the basic background for the scene:
The two protagonists stop in Billie’s bar. Gene, (Fred Halsted) never the one to pass a challenge, takes Will (Steve King) and his girlfriend Kay (Jeanne Marie Marchaud) down to the basement for a demonstration of man to man sex. The men have oral sex while she masturbates as she watches. Meanwhile, some homophobe is making some remarks as Locke is leaning against the bar. Halsted returns (with a big grin), but can’t believe what he’s hearing, the homophobe starts to grab Halsted, Billie (Georgina Spelvin) shouts (to Halsted) “Now Gene, you put him down” there’s a camera shot of the window, then she exclaims “Not there!”, and you see this body flung through the window! Much of the aftersex bar scene is chopped/missing from later tapes and the current DVD version.
But then last night, while I’m re watching the scene trying to decide how much to snag, it was this part here that grabbed me, this very “unlike Joe Gage scene” in a Joe Gage film. If you’ve seen a lot of his stuff, you realize that he’s not so much into gay sex as he’s into men having sex with each other. I think the no kissing thing is even more present in his more recent movies, perhaps with all the modern porn models having gay tattoos, thong tan-lines, etc., it remains the only way to show notgay man-on-man sex. But here, the kissing is critical – not just because it’s sensual, and hot, and Fred Halsted’s laid back sexiness is sooooo thick throughout the film, but because here, it’s not enough for Fred’s character to have sex with the married man while he wife watches – that’s not enough of a conquest – it has to be gay sex, with nice, sensual tongues going at it.
well, at least that’s the way I see it – click on one of the pics to view the scene.
bonus points for identifying the music during the kiss.
