"vintage" porn stars in the name of leather Zeus

Mike Drumm

ummmmm – only two magazines – that is all we have of this furryfucker? JM&J! JFC! what the…? Noooo film or video??? that can’t be! more research is necessary, but let’s start here.

ZEUS – Mickey Squires & Mereck Flint – solo

(sling pics might look familiar – I misidentified then as Dick Trask some time ago!)

HARD LEATHER – with Lee Brubaker ( I sold this one! “Bud & Rick leather daddy helps out a guy with a broke down car – by ripping off his jeans, getting his boots licked, and more! both bearded, both give and get.”

you want it Randy, huh?

HUH? indeed! – WTF? I certainly watched this film a bazillion times in the mid to late 80’s at the porno theatre, but somehow didn’t remember the lady screams, the werewolf sounds, and, wait – was that a “train in the night” sound? Scary winds sounds, and more lady screams… and scariest of all…. Shawn Michaels. OK, just kidding, at least it’s not blond-version Shawn Michaels.

oops – did I leave out the part where Jim Bentley wakes up, and it was all a dream?? Or…… was it….? Opening sequence from Getting It (1985)

"vintage" porn stars in the name of leather pornoclips


I know he’s only been in one porno, but have I only mentioned Fernando once before, in 2003?

Fernando , a well-known personality at the bars and gay restaurants in New York appears as the only performer in the film. As a modern-day Narcissus he roams the City to seek out his image — one that beguiles him. Fernando, off camera holds some 36 trophies to his credit – being named Mr. Leather, Mr. Congeniality and a host of other plaudits from his peers. He has appeared in 13 other films, was photographed for Mandate, The Advocate and his photo appeared in Esquire as part of their article, “The New Homosexuality.” Fernando is at home in leather riding his Italian motorcycle to one of his favorite bars Badlands or One Potato. When he’s not in the City he’s on vacation seeing places like South America, Mexico or Europe.”

So that was lifted from GEVI, who got it from some promotional materials – BUT BUT BUT I will say I remember seeing an autographed pic of Fernando on the wall of an Italian restaurant on East 4th St in the mid 80’s; and I also recall a glimpse of him in Cruising – remember Malo was the first victim in that film? – I’ve often wondered what other porn stars were in those bar scenes…. and the “missing 40 minutes” to get the R-rating? I digress.. Gosh, Badlands I remember well; but don’t think I’ve ever been to either One Potato or Two Potato – I do recall seeing both on Christopher Street.

so the above is a 5-minute clip from Leather Narcissus , I think of the ending (I couldn’t locate a promo preview, alas); and below is the entire 28-minute film. Some date it back to 1971, but I’ve also read that it’s earlier, or at least the filming of it was – I suppose checking out some of the locales in the film might help (wait, would I know the difference between 1967 NYC and 1971 NYC? nope). The VHS copy I have I am pretty sure includes another film, Clouds, from the smae time period, I imagine it was included to, with perhaps some promo clips, round of to a full 60-minute tape. One day I’ll dig it up and see! Meanwhile, check out the film.

“LEATHER NARCISSUS, a film conceived, directed and photographed by Avery Willard (AKA Bruce King) and starring Fernando will have its world premiere at the Big Top Theatre on Broadway and 49th Street on Wednesday, August 16th. Filmed in and around New York City, the film tells the fascinating story, in modern fantasy, of the Narcissus myth. The film, originally an underground sensation, was shown to a select few under the auspices of the Mattachine Society. Soon after, prints found their way to some of the leather bars, and finally it was decided to bring this extraordinary film to the viewing public at the Big Top!

interesting take on the film

These additional pics of Fernando – the first is from Queens Quarterly, Summer 1970 edition – doesn’t the other guy look like “Buck Jones” the star of The Devil and Mr. Jones – and the second is Fernando with a guy named Frank Paz – there are more from this series, but if you look closely at the wall, you’ll see why I opted out of showing more.

Arch Brown in the name of leather pornoclips


aka The Leather Bond – my theory, based on nothing, is that the name got changed when it went to video as the early 1980’s and Reagan’s Meese Commission and the “war on pornography” wanted to take the s/m-ness out of the title. Again, theory based on nothing. I don’t even know if there was any actual bondage: as I think the lose theme threading the scenes together is a leather cock ring. The clip is super short – if any interest, I can dig the video out and nab more.

Director: Arch Brown (1975)

Starring: Kristoffer Streate, Myerson Grant, Robby Peterson, Larry Quill and Anton Lewis.

Director: Matt Sterling (1983)

Starring: Bill Henson, Brian Michaels (aka Bobby Madison), Eric Stryker, Doug Weston, Matt Ramsey (aka Peter North), Lance Chisholm, Scott Avery, Mike Ryan, Brad Walsh, Steve Krause, Joe Porcelli(?), Don Webber

as discussed before, GEVI (Gay Erotic Video Index) lists a “Joe Purcelli” as someone in the first scene; but I know that’s not him – which made me think perhaps he is in the leather scene – here’s your chance to help figure out this puzzle – is Joe in this scene? or is he erroneously listed as being in this 1983 classic?

“CASEY DONOVAN is house hunting in Hollywood. But instead of a house, this sex superstar finds the kind of huge, muscular stud that makes CASEY pull out all the stops in twenty minutes of boiling sex you’ll have to see to believe. You’ll want to be there when CASEY goes all the way.”
