Wow! Wow! WOW!!! I was just trying to modestly update my Wakefield Poole page, because the documentary I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole is currently making the film festival circuit (and I just got my own personal “Donors and Friends Edition” DVD!!) and stumbled upon this, the release on DVD of Wakefield Poole’s amazing BIBLE! Now, while I want everyone to go right over to Gorilla Factory Productions and order a copy (only 20 bucks + shipping), if you don’t know anything about it, I feel, as a pornologist, to “warn” you that it is not a typical porno film – in fact, many might rate it “R”, I don’t recall any gay sex actually, and when I finally got to see it about 10 years ago, I had no urge to pull my cock out and wank (well, except maybe when Brahm van Zetten, who portrays Samson, was on the screen). But it’s a wonderfully beautiful and fun film, and any serious 70’s porn fan should have it. And i remember watching it thinking – “Ah HA! Poole the choreographer! of course!” And I know you can maybe save 2 bucks by going to Amazon, but please, check it out over at Gorilla Factory Productions, because Jim Tushinski is doing an amazing job reissuing and remastering (seriously, the DVD’s I’ve purchased so far are just so well done, and so affordable!) these gems, it’s a small contribution we can make to preserve our gay porn history.

Now, as I’m sure you could guess, what I am really really really waiting for (no, really!), is Poole’s docufantasy Take One (1977) which has Richard Locke making love to his real life partner. Never available on video, DVD, and I don’t think even 8mm, they are working on it now and I really really really can’t wait (no, really!)!!
