AKA Greatest Glory Hole
Director: Fred Halsted (1980) – Gary Sikes, Ben Barker, and….?
and a nice movie trailer
from the “how did I miss this” file:
Nearly impossible to see following its brief theatrical release in 1985 and never officially released on home video, BUDDIES makes its home video debut (back in 2018!), newly restored from its long lost 16mm negative, from Vinegar Syndrome . (it may also be on Amazon, but if purchasing, please consider the company that is making this, and other gay films available again – Vinegar Syndrome!) Also available for streaming through Kanopy.
from the New York Times: “Long Forgotten, a Landmark Film in AIDS History Is Rescued“
and this is all due to THE BRESSAN PROJECT – a collaboration of director Arthur J. Bressan, Jr.’s sister Roe Bressan and LGBT film historian Jenni Olson, The Bressan Project is devoted to the preservation and promotion of the films of Arthur J. Bressan, Jr. THIS IS FANTASTIC! – thank you thank you thank you! so happy to see this!
I saw the film back in the fall of 1985 when it came out; it was devastating to watch at that time, as you probably can imagine (or recall what it was like back in ’85). I have yet to watch again, or purchase – kind of need the right moment. But am ecstatic with its re-release, and the promise of more from The Bressan Project. As y’all may know, I am trying to update (and expand, flesh out) some of my non-blog pages – starting with my directors pages. Do me a favor if you can, and check out my current (and soon to be former) page for Bressan, and my 2020 update (still in progress) – feedback, tips, typos, ANY thing to improve it, I’d appreciate hearing about it either in the comments, or via email. thanks!
seriously – feedback, tips, typos, ANY thing to improve it, I’d appreciate hearing about it either in the comments, or via email. thanks!
Starring: Al Parker, Jack Wrangler, Will Seagers, Dan Noble, Duff Paxton, Frank Ross, R.W. Stone (AKA Ray Medina), Rob Stevens, Sam Benson, and Steve Taylor
One of two films with Al Parker and Jack Wrangler. Wrangler plays an evil prison guard, forcing men into having sex with him. Parker escapes with straight fellow prisoner Will Seagers, who can’t bare the thought of having gay sex. They are chained together for most of the escape a la The Defiant Ones.

(I had the exact same look on my face reading the email, although I wasn’t naked at the time – or was I?)
as some of you may know, I am trying to update, clean up, and add to my non-blog parts of the website, (and working on some blog issues, as well) which includes updating my directors pages. While cleaning up links, I saw that my Tom DeSimone link no longer worked, but gave me the chance to purchase the domain. Heck, for a few bucks, why not. Maybe even snatch it up and see if Tom wants it, or I can just use it to keep interest in his porn titles (he’s done a lot more, but my interest, of course, is the porn!) But all due respect to Mr. Desimone, it’s about $2250 more than my budget can handle! sheeeeeeeeesh!!! where do they come up with pricing like that???
of course, if any of YOU want to snag it for me….. heehee! or just inundate them with $5 offers until they bring the price down. way down. way way way down.

it started as a search for more Man’s Image photos on eBay…. hours later, having stumbled upon a magazine called Man’s Country, those pics also looked interesting, so I had to download them, this one included, and it looked familiar, so I had to figure out where it came from….. 2 days later – something something Arch Brown seems about right… sometime (hours? days?) later, I figured it out – The Night Before (1974)!
of course, if I really wanted to go down a rabbit hole, I could try to figure out who the woman in the poster is!
