The Hustler

from director Fred Halsted, this is just a portion (less than 3 minutes) of the scene called The Hustler – seen in the 1975 film Sextool. Makes me curious to find out more about this performer, Jim Frost – and yes, I WANT THAT T-SHIRT!

and yes, the pic below is from the UNOPENED LA Plays Itself: The Fred Halsted Collection [Altered Innocence] – limited edition blue ray – I didn’t even have a player when I snagged this up. Then I bought the blue ray player, and it’s right there, 2 feet from me as I type, never used. This winter I have a lot of catching up to do!

fast friends

Director: Fred Halsted (1987) 83 minutes

Starring: Fred Halsted, David Spectrum, Clay Russell, Dean, Gregory, Jesse Jones (AKA Mick Christopher), Al Ford

from Gay Erotic Video Index“Ten beautiful muscular Body Builders. Hot & horny action, with fetishes spanking, body worship, sweat socks and armpits. Interracial.”

Four young guys recount their sexual experiences and fantasies. First guy up describes his fantasy with muscle studs Clay Russell and David Spectrum; next up, Al Ford describes his “DAD”, Fred Halsted catching him reading a porn magazine, takes him over his knee and spanks him, them makes him jack off; finally Jesse Jones gets it on with a straight buddy..

Original music: Cooltoons, Inc. – I kinda dig the music.

There’s a lot not to like about Fred Halsted’s last effort (we can do that in the comments, if you care to watch the movie first – Fred’s dirty talk while the guy can’t get it up is kinda up there on the list!), but I do remember at the time enjoying Clay Russell’s body being adored, and this was still in a porno theater, so no fast forward – you either sat and watched, or got up and roamed around the theatre… (that’s for another time – or go look thru the archives!) ANd maybe I’m alone here, but the “str8” guy getting talked into getting head is kinda fun. Of course he’s holding a beer, hasn’t “gotten any in 3 weeks” so, ya know, what the hell???!

For a less charitable view – check this out – The Pornography of Exhaustion and Tape Decay: Fred Halsted’s Fast Friends (1986)“This is a sad, dispiriting effort all around, and it’s merely to contribute some commentary on the late-Halsted oeuvre that I even bother here; it seems nobody else has seen fit to do so.”

Halsted and…..? (pt. 2)

OK – here’s some better quality pics – I still dig the ones in the previous post… but who are the other two guys? The one is like a mash-up of Dan Pace and Brand
