man’s country google hole

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!

Oil Rig 99


Starring Ryan Harker, Bud Wallace; Carrado Quinto, Jesse Jones, Jose Morales, Jeff Stone, and Tharon Davis. Directed by Mac Larsen (AKA Joe Gage).

Roy Garrett is on the box cover art (see the color insert?), but not in the film!!

intro, great voiceover, then footage of the “wilds” of Africa (Bronx Zoo, including a tiger – which doesn’t live in Africa, but I digress)

The new guy is wearing safari gear, even though he’s been assigned to, and just landed at,. an Oil Rig.

about 10 minutes in, finally the first signs of sex; the crew is asleep in their bunks, and one guy wakes up to find 2 others fooling around.

Red Ball Express

Red Ball Express

Director: Mac Larson (Joe Gage) (1982) 57 minutes running time

(this scene: Roy Garrett and Bob Shane)

Starring: Mickey Squires, Jayson MacBride, Jeff Stone, Roy Garrett, Daniel Holt, Bob Shane, Wayne Stephens; plus the RED BALL CREW: Bill Anawatt, Marty Jesus, Daye Simon, Terry Hunt, Hal Brighan, Tristan Carson, Paul Stapleton, John Sammartino, Gerry Condit, Kyle Grayzel

Wolf, played by beefy, bearded Mickey Squires, delivers moonshine from Arkansas. His boss, O’Bannion (Jayson MacBride), guides Wolf on his deliveries by CB radio, where his sexual hints make Wolf anxious to meet him in Chicago.

You might need a willing suspension of disbelief for this film – ignore that Mickey is driving what appears to be a Gremlin, not a truck; Roy and Bob are firemen outfitted in construction helmets; the facade of the firehouse looks awfully like the one on 3rd street in Manhattan; the inside of the firehouse looks an awful lot like my tenement apartment on 15th street in the 80’s…… but, but…. Roy and Bob ARE hot – watch through to the end! (I had forgotten how well Bob Shane …well, you’ll see)

J. D. Slater

Apparently I have not posted him as much as I thought – or perhaps some were in the pre-wordpress days when the search function down over there won’t help….. his first film was Joe Gage’s HANDsome; and I believe Hard (1986) with Lee Ryder was his first foray into directing; not sure when he started doing soundtracks, but here’s a cool interview with him about that part of his career. These pics, from probably 1985, are fuzzier than I remember (eBay snags); but still, love this look – who doesn’t love a hot bearded balding man!!??

You may remember him from such films as: Handsome, New York Men, Outrage, What the Big Boys Eat, Chip Off The Old Block, 2 X 10; One, Two, Three; Bring Your Own Man; In Heat, Ranch Hand, Dynastud, Nightcrawler, International Skin; a bunch with Christopher Rage: Rough Idea, Tramps, My Masters, Worship (Live) two with Palm Drive Video – Mud & Oil, Mud! Apocalypse Again! (wonder if any Slater will be in the Raw! Uncut! Video! documentary) – and gosh knows how many more – feel free to post your faves, or any I’ve left out, in the comments.

Joe Gage – VHS? – yes

so yeah, you know I am sorting and scanning and culling and mulling and trying to sell all I can let go of, and guess what? I find an old VHS small box El Paso Wrecking Corp. that’s actually the full 90 minutes!!! But of course I have to be sure, and plug it into the VCR – and then go over to the DVD player and plug in the recently re-released 3- disc Joe Gage Trilogy disc of El Paso….. and my old VHS copy, not only complete and the DVD isn’t (missing like 20+ minutes) but the color and quality is still much better! And I wasted so much time just watching it, and going back in my head to the old movie theaters…. but also yelling at the DVD version for skipping important stuff like Halsted throwing the guy through the window, the whole Mike Morris scene missing, but loving the set up to….anyway…. check out the auction, give the page a couple of hits.
