California Jackoff

OK – first thing I can say for Rusty (in his solo scene from California Jackoff ) – good thing he didn’t have to do this solo strip at the beginning to the music soundtrack (Gloria) that we are hearing – next thing, for those who are impatient, just zoom to about 3 minutes in, and he’s shirtless, pants unzipped, and he makes his first attempt.

Oh NO! this was supposed to be a – “nice cum job, bud” post, but now, watching with the sound on, I MUST KNOW THE MYSTERY NEW WAVE TUNE played during the second half of the clip! And actually, it totally fits once he’s frantically jacking!

  • “Gloria” Laura Branigan
  • mystery new wave tune
  • update/edit: Castro Boy Danny Boy & The Serious Party Gods

OK, while we’re at it, I’ll throw in Jeff Thompson‘s solo scene; first tune is OK, second – ugh! He doesn’t achieve what Rusty does, but it’s a fine pornformance nonetheless, right?


  • “Dancing Is Dangerous” – Sparks (or Noel’s cover?)
  • Fire in My Heart – Madleen Kane

Men Play

OK you guys, from last time we looked at Games Men Play we got additional tunes, as well as some model I.D.s – since I was already going to make another post with scene 2 (cuz something about Stanley Richards – probably his role in Killing Me Softly , he might even be wearing the same clothes here – but I digress) – let’s see if I got all the actors/models correct (I prefer to take them off the credits, then make notations for corrections/additions), and all the tunes, as well (thank you zephyr, Casey) – feel free to add/correct in the comments and I will edit those in. Oh wait, the original reason for posting this scene is the music ID for the opening of the scene – so so familiar, likely used in other pornos, but it’s embedded in my 80’s porn theatre brain.. HELP ME!!

Director: Beau Janson (AKA John Christopher) – Games Men Play (1979) –

Starring – Jimmy West, Aarron Clark, Bob Studds (AKA Bob Presley), Mike Horne; also starring: Malcom Rodgers, Richard Danials, Nick Romano (no, not 90’s Nick!), Lee Alexander; WITH: Adam de Haven, Marcus Steward, Ron Hudd (non-sex), Carrie Simms (that’s from the credits, but we found at least 2 names not on the list who should be – Jayson MacBride and Stan (or Stanley) Richards – likely they went by another name for this film?)

update/re-edit:

  • Theme From “The Warriors” – Barry De Vorzon
  • Saturday Night, Sunday Morning – Thelma Houston
  • Evolution – Giorgio Moroder
  • Love is the Ultimate – Ultimate (scene 2)
  • Doin’ The Best That I Can – Bettye LaVette
  • incidental 3 – Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops
  • From East to West – Voyage (construction site scene)???? maybe not?
  • Come Into My Heart / Good Loving – Boris Midney

SKIN DEEP

SKIN DEEP – Director: Lancer Brooks (Tom De Simone) (1982) – 80 minutes running time

Starring: Michael Christopher & Johnny Dawes; plus: Chris Burns, Ben (Benjamin) Barker, Matt Michaels, and special appearance by Beau Matthews and Giorgio Canali

“This compelling story of a contemporary relationship confronts and questions some comfortable stereotypes. Johnny Dawes plays the author of pornographic novels who picks up a hustler, mainly for inspiration. But the hustler (Michael Christopher) turns out to be a thinking, feeling human being who challenges the writer’s preconceived ideas about sexual involvement.” – Bijou Video

In a spectacular conclusion, (the scene shown above) Dawes has sex with the hustler while imagining himself getting topped first by hustler Michaels, then by the other characters (fictional & not), Beau Matthews (rare for him!), Matt Michaels, Ben Barker, and Chris Burns. They surround him on the bed for the climax. (note: no Giorgio Canali – I read in an unpublished interview with De Simone that he was unhappy with Canali’s performance, or rather, lack of it as he had sex off camera with Beau before their filming, and wasn’t turned on after that first, off-camera attempt!)



“theme” music – Need Somebody by STUFF (at least one other STUFF tune appears, This One’s For You) plus Jerry Goldsmith’s – The Wrong Clue, and The Last of Ida; plus Serenade In The Night from Primo Scala & His Accordion Band, Herb Alpert’s The Factory (during the Beau/Giorgio scene) and Beyond in the subsequent scene between Johnny & Michael; and of course, PINK FLOYD’s On The Run. I love that the director’s original choices for music withstood the transfer to VHS, etc (unlike the case in The Idol). You can tell the film and music editing was coordinated, not just a random slap up job.

Magic Fly

tradition! a clip from Navy Blue – but it’s just soooooo good! Classic story – two guys in the Navy on a 12-hour leave in NYC, each secretly in love with the other, but can’t bare to admit it to the other and risk jeopardizing their friendship. They part ways, and Jack Wrangler is trying to enjoy site-seeing on his own, but loses himself in thought looking at one of the Christmas-decorated windows, imagining a romantic encounter with his buddy, 70’s bearded hunk George Payne, complete with disco-theme music, of course.

NAVY BLUE

director: Francis Ellie (1979)

Starring: George Payne & Jack Wrangler; plus Brian Ray (Santa); , Giuseppe Welsh (helicopter), Adam DeHaven, Kurt Mann, Snapper Foster, Derek Thurston, and Anna Freed

I have to add (this year) that it is a favorite scene, because it’s Jack ACTING with a dream sequence that’s got awesome disco music! I wanted to add a bit of the final scene, when Jack and George finally “do it” – but there’s no hint of Christmas at all! But, and I’m looking at you, Yorj, it’s ripe for another group project to ID all the music – I say that because, while zipping through the film, I paused briefly at a scene I’ve rarely watched, George and Anna Freed (for very very obvious reasons), hear what I think is Oxygen, pt 4 but…. I come to discover, may be from McLane Explosion and their version of Oxygene! What? mind exploded! …. then I began to look for a decent link for McLane Explosion, and discover they also do a version of Magic Fly, which I always assumed was from SPACE – here’s the version I’ve always assumed was in the film, Magic Fly. so now, my first Xmas post, trying to do an update and not a copy/paste of previous years, and hours (many hours) later, my mind McSploded, I am at a loss for words.

blahblah blah… This is also the film with the wonderful Jack Wrangler blowjob in the helicopter flying over Manhattan skyline scene.

Games Men Play

“I don’t pay for nothing”
“Then you’re gonna get nothing”
“you’re gonna suck my cock and I’m gonna shove it up your round little ass”
“fuck off asshole I ain’t gonna do it!”

Director: Beau Janson Games Men Play (1979) – cast – Jimmy West, Aarron Clark, Bob Studds, Mike Horne; also starring: Malcom Rodgers, Richard Danialls, Nick Romano, Lee Alexander; WITH: Adam de Haven, Marcus Steward, Ron Hudd, Carrie Simms (that’s from the credits, but we found at least 2 names not on the list who should be – Jayson MacBride and Stanley Richards – likely they went by another name for this film?) – extra credit if you can name who these 2 are

anyway, I know the suspense is killing you – “fuck off asshole I ain’t gonna do it!” – will he or won’t he? The setting, the dialogue, it’s getting me all, er, nostalgic – yes! nostalgic for my twenties living in NYC! This was supposed to be a simple post – nab the video, edit, nab some stills, post. But I made the “mistake” of looking for a good link – got it from our pal Yorj Yefferson/ over at REDDIT (see link to review below) but got distracted by getting caught up in ID’ing some of the music – and I found at least 2 tracks from The Warriors (The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) – (Theme From “The Warriors” and Baseball Furies Chase – which i am certain I have heard used in Joe Gage/Mac Larsen films…. but I digress) and I would bet there’s more pulled from that soundtrack. There’s another tune played during the Stanley Richards scene, again, familiar and likely to have shown up in another porno, most likely Gage/Larsen. but that’s for another post – or comments, who knows? and that’s why I have so many posts languishing in the drafts folder, waiting for one more link, one more pic, before hitting “publish.”

What I Like About You

I was working on something else, somehow wound up on my own A NIGHT AT HALSTED’S soundtrack page, and realized none of the music links worked! Aaaaaarrrghhh! So I had to figure out what was wrong, download, upload, update pages, and then figured all that and I bet the page hardly gets any hits any longer….

But back around – on gosh, don’t say it – the turn of the Century, someone found my geogities pages, after trying to figure out who the hell put cool music on a porno he was watching… long story short, he and another pal of mine spent weeks trying to ID each and find a digital version of each tune, and eventually got all 26. Then my Kansas buddy sent me a homemade CD of the final product.

If you look back at my earlier archives ( the “blogger years” – April 2001 to March 2010 ) – you can see some of my rambling on the topic – “night+at+halsted’s” Oh look – there was a time I was the only search result for “A NIGHT AT HALSTED’S SOUNDTRACK”, but if you keep the phrase in quotes, I’m 3rd, which is better than none. Anyway, all that and cover model for the film JW King, from an August 1982 HONCHO. Now that I’ve spent all this time talking about everything but the film, I think I need to revisit it, as I recall not enjoying it much, but for the plexiglass glory-hole scene. But don’t wait for me to get around to watching and writing and posting, when you can check out this review right here – on REDDIT

pinball wizard

“When Pat wins at pinball, Jerry has to pay up on their bet. It seemed a good idea before the game began, and Pat certainly turns Jerry on, but Jerry finds the idea a little scary – at first. Soon, however, both young studs are lost in a sex world of their own and steely hard cocks make their demands of passion in a game that no one loses.”



Pat Fulton, and Jerry O’Brien – from the cute short film – Pinball Wizard (1982?) – one of 6 parts from the the Heat Waves collection.

music from Giorgio Moroder, Chase – right? (Originally from the Midnight Express soundtrack) – I think the first 15 seconds-ish may be something else
